Bronx Neighbors Can Rely on SERVPRO to Monitor the Humidity Levels in their Homes After a Leak

Pipes burst, and appliances break. When this happens, water may leak all over your floors and cabinets. The water removal process may appear easy, but how do you verify that the excess moisture is gone and that your flooring and carpets are safe from further damage?

Bronx neighbors needing water cleanup services can rely on our expert team to extract water while protecting your flooring and other personal property. Our team is available around the clock to work on the restoration of homes throughout the area. Our knowledge and experience prepare us to handle water removal jobs of all sizes.

What happens if there's excess moisture on my floor and carpet?
The average person may think that extracting water is enough to protect your home. At SERVPRO, we know that normal humidity levels vary based on the material. For example, wood floors require a different moisture level than a marble tile. Our team uses specialized measuring tools, such as infrared moisture meters, to monitor each area of your home and restore normalcy. Here are some of the different issues facing your home:

    •    Concrete floors- these are porous and may leave a powder-like residue when the water dries. Treating it with an EPA-approved disinfectant completes the job.
    •    Ceramic tile- Often the tile is in good shape, but the subfloor it rests on may expand due to excess water. We use specialized tools to measure the humidity level in the subfloor and adjust our drying method accordingly.
    •    Carpets- carpet may separate from its backing, and its adhesiveness may be defective. In some instances, removal may be more sensible than restoration, and our team assists with this process as well.

SERVPRO of South Bronx is your best resource when water attacks. Call us at (347) 590-9902 and let us leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”
