For the Best Outcome, Homeowners Should Hire a Reliable Restorer like SERVPRO to Conduct Water Cleanup their Camillus Residence.

When water seeps into your Camillus property, it can take less than 48 hours for the secondary damages to occur. Odors may begin to linger while mold growth may occur on various surfaces. If the water intrusion incident remains unattended for more than 48 hours, your wooden floor may start to warp, and the structural stability of your home may get affected.

What are the signs of water damage?
It is vital to hire reliable professionals to conduct water cleanup in your Camillus home since hidden water and moisture can damage your property silently. To determine if there could be hidden water damage in your residence, you can:
    •    Inspect the exterior and interior walls for discoloration.
    •    Examine the floors by checking signs of buckling, warped flooring, and stains on the carpet.
    •    Investigate your pipes in the basement, laundry room, kitchen, and bathroom for water stains
    •    Look out for a musty, mold, or damp odor

How do restorers find hidden water damage?
At SERVPRO, we use innovative techniques and high-tech equipment to test for dampness behind walls or confined areas. We can use thermal imaging cameras to see where moisture is present and penetrating moisture meters to get the moisture readings of porous surfaces like carpeting and pad.

Are your technicians certified?
Our restorers have gone through thorough training and have water restoration and cleanup certification. We have accreditation from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and we conduct water cleanup in compliance with the IICRC S500 standards. Our technicians have expertise in:
    •    Water damage cleanup
    •    Sanitizing
    •    Deodorization

Do restores have to demolish the drywall do access the trapped moisture?
Our SERVPRO technicians can access the moisture behind your drywall and confined areas without causing more damage. Our primary goal is to minimize damage and save as much of your property as possible. We can drill small holes into the drywall using a drill to direct positive pressure behind the wall. That can help in replacing the moist air with dry air leading to fast drying.

How do restorers deodorize a property whose occupants are allergic to scented products?
Many deodorizing products are scented. If you are allergic to scented products, we can use alternate equipment like hydroxyl machines and thermal foggers to combat the odors. Our restorers can also use a ventilation box fan to increase airflow in the property. The equipment generates between 3,000 and 5,000 cubic feet of air per minute, removing some odors.

You can save your property by acting immediately a water intrusion incident occurs. Contact SERVPRO of SW Onondaga County at (315) 488-3900 to get your property to its pre-damaged condition “Like it never even happened.”
