What Can I Expect From SERVPRO When Experiencing A Flood In My New London Business?

The past few decades have seen a rapid advancement in technology and techniques used in the restoration industry. These advancements are employed by the SERVPRO of Huron & East Seneca Counties professionals to restore your property to preloss condition quickly and effectively. You can expect SERVPRO to use equipment and techniques such as: 

Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment. Scientific drying principles rely upon specialized equipment to watch a property's moisture levels. Recent advances, like infrared cameras, can help us see the water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.

  • Our technicians use an infrared camera to identify water location for water removal.
  • Sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation.

Water Extraction Equipment. Powerful equipment speeds the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water. 
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.

Drying Equipment. Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers remove the remaining moisture from your property. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace.
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.

Odor Removal and Deodorization. Water and fire damage often causes powerful odors. The machines we use will remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality.

  • Air scrubbers
  • Thermal foggers and deodorization agents

Sanitizing Agents, Germicides, and Antimicrobial Treatments. SERVPRO technicians will use OSHA-approved cleaning agents to remove odors and contaminants.

  • Deodorization products control odors from excessive moisture.
  • Disinfection products stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, mildew, and other harmful microorganisms.
