Water Cleanup with Effective Removal Services

Mitigation is one of the focal points of successful water damage restoration. Cleaning up after burst pipes and damaged plumbing requires swift and deliberate action to protect sensitive materials. With our immediate extraction and drying practices, we can often limit needed tear-out and reconstruction.

Water Removal Services

Water cleanup for Clifton Park homes relies greatly on the earliest measures taken to remove standing water and pooling. Prevention is one of the most direct measures of protecting property. Removing standing water reduces the likelihood of water absorption into flooring and other building materials. Extractors like pumps and vacuums help with the bulk of removal needs. 

Trapped Moisture in Flooring

After even a short exposure period, flooring materials can begin to absorb water damage. Porous flooring like carpeting is among the most heavily impacted, but plank flooring not specifically designed to resist moisture is also at risk. Tracking movement of water is an essential element in removing water and damp pockets in the flooring materials of the house. We have a wide range of tracking equipment for trapped water and humidity, including:

  • Moisture meter
  • Thermal imagery 
  • Probing dampness detectors
  • Thermo hygrometers

Is the Subflooring Water Damaged?

The subflooring is not always damaged by migrating water, but our SERVPRO team must always specify compromised building materials. With many subflooring materials consisting of OSB board and high porosity padding or plywood, prolonged water exposure can devastate these installed elements. We must carefully evaluate the state of these materials and choose if controlled demolition is needed. 

Water cleanup is often the product of the measures taken by our SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County team to remove water and moisture after a disaster. We have a fast response to get mitigation started right away. Call experienced restorers when you need us at (518) 885-2620.
