Smithtown Residents Trust SERVPRO for Water Removal and Restoration Services

As seen in the opening of this video, flood restoration is one of the most serious types of water clean up jobs SERVPRO handles in the Smithtown area. The standing water around the homes has nowhere to go when the wastewater disposal system has overwhelming amounts of water flowing through it. That is the time to bring in SERVPRO to extract and dispose of the water. The number one reason for property owners to bring in a professional mitigation service is the probable contamination of the water. As floodwater passes over surfaces, it picks up dirt, debris, chemicals, and even raw sewage, all of which get deposited in Smithtown properties at the end of the destination. SERVPRO technicians have comprehensive training in the safe handling of this type of water and the professional equipment to make it happen.

SERVPRO Uses Controlled Demolition During water Damage Restoration in Smithtown Properties

A term Smithtown property owners may hear during water damage cleanup jobs by SERVPRO is controlled demolition. While it sounds destructive and counterproductive, it is actually beneficial and often works to save portions of the structure from further damage. As seen in the video, the SERVPRO technicians had removed a part of the damaged ceiling in the Smithtown property, which saves the homeowner from replacing an entire ceiling when only a small area received the effects of the water damage.

SERVPRO Emergency Services Water Damage Teams are Ready 24/7 in Smithtown

A great overview of the service fleet from SERVPRO is showing in the video. During the initial phone call with the Smithtown property owner, a SERVPRO IICRC certified team member gathers the information about the type of water cleanup services needed. The technicians use this information to load the service vans with the equipment required for that specific job, including water removal services units, drying equipment. If needed, generators in case the power is out at the Smithtown job site.

SERVPRO Uses the Latest Water Removal Equipment and Methods in Smithtown

As shown in the video, SERVPRO techs have access to a host of advanced water extraction equipment. The amount and depth of the water in the Smithtown structure play a part in determining the type of equipment the techs use for water removal services. While many types of water damage recede under floors and into walls rapidly, this is not always the case. A mere inch of standing water has the potential to cause thousands of dollars in damages as well as create a biohazard situation.

Drying Smithtown Properties Through Science

The video shows two types of drying equipment: the basic configuration in most Smithtown water damage restoration jobs by SERVPRO. While the smaller but powerful air movers deliver warm, dry air to a wet area in the property, the dehumidifiers capture the water vapor and port it off-site. This cycle continues until the room readings on SERVPRO's moisture detection equipment achieve drying goals. Once the drying phase completes, the video shows a happy couple entering their home after the restoration services to a house that shows zero signs of the former water damage, "Like it never even happened."
