Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in St. James, NY

As a thriving neighborhood in Smithtown, St James has more than 13,000 residents. With threats like water damage consistent concerns, our local SERVPRO team stays ready to help when burst pipes, ceiling leaks, or flooding threaten Suffolk County. 

Water Removal Services to Help Your St. James Home

While there are multiple mitigation services that our team can provide, few have the importance of water removal services. Standing water can threaten the property and its contents, making the application of several extraction devices in our inventory critical. Some of these tools include:

  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Trash pumps
  • High-pressure pumps
  • Wet vacuums
  • Truck-mount extractors

What Drying Processes Are Best for Damaged St. James Residences?

Drying can be complicated, especially when the moisture has spread through structural cavities and become trapped in porous materials. We have multiple drying equipment to overcome this moisture content in various forms. The heart of the drying process is a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers placed appropriately throughout the household.

When Are Water Damage Repairs Needed? 

Choosing the best time for water damage repairs might not always be clear. One of the objectives of a thorough investigation and assessment of the conditions of a water-damaged property is to determine the likelihood and necessity of build-back services. With a general contractor license, we can complete these actions and save customers money.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
