How SERVPRO Performs Professional Water Removal in Camillus

Fast action after water damage is vital to prevent secondary damages from taking place. Most property owners get tempted to remove water in the affected area themselves. However, the chances of secondary damages taking place are high when one lacks sufficient training or advanced water removal equipment. Mold growth may occur, odors may linger, and other costly damages may occur due to high moisture levels.

Fortunately, if you hire SERVPRO restorers to handle water removal, you can expect a thorough job. We use hi-tech equipment and innovative techniques to ensure effective restoration. If your carpet is affected, we can use Knee Kickers, carpet shears, and heavy-duty plastic bags to remove your affected carpet. That also helps us access water under the carpet and pad.

Water damage can be a devastating event if not handled professionally. Call SERVPRO of SW Onondaga County for effective water removal. Talk to us at (315) 488-3900.
