Water damage can occur to residential and commercial properties at any time, and can cause a significant amount of damage to the structure and content. And standing water at your property can also be dangerous if the water contains harmful bacteria, such as from a sewer backup or spill. Damage can continue to occur, the longer that you wait to begin the needed removal and restoration process. Water damage can commonly occur from leaking or burst pipes, sprinkler head breaks, sewage backups, rainstorms and seasonal flooding, hurricanes, faulty water heaters, faulty dishwashers and appliances, sinks, and more concerns.
As emergency treatment is needed for any type of water damage, ServiceMaster by Mason is available 24/7 to provide water damage restoration services in the Hampton, CT area. With professional equipment and years of experience, our specialists will fully secure the affected area, remove standing water, dry and restore all damage within the structure and to your personal belongings.
Property Damages from Water
When water comes into contact with your property structure, it can spread very quickly, in and around your structure and items. When this happens, the building materials may take on extensive damage, and porous materials, such as drywall, wood, and particleboard could permanently damage if treatment does not begin promptly.
Additionally, if restoration service is prolonged, the risk for mold growth grows as bacteria will accumulate and form into mold spores. Having mold present in your home or business will not only further damage your structure but can cause adverse health effects.
Water Damage Cleanup
When our water damage restoration specialists are called right away, ServiceMaster by Mason will immediately secure the area, develop a mitigation plan, extract any standing water, and begin drying and restoring your property.
After all of the standing water is extracted, we will begin the drying and restoration of the building materials by installing our professional drying equipment, including high velocity air movers and dehumidifiers. While the drying times may vary, our equipment will accelerate the process as much as possible to have you moved back in a timely manner.
When all materials are effectively dried, we will then apply anti-microbials and sanitize the area to prevent any bacterial growth. A final inspection will then be conducted to guarantee your satisfaction of our work.
