Crucial Tips for Facilitating Water Restoration in Scarsdale 

When you hear of water damage, what comes to mind? Saturation within structural areas and wet contents, stains, or foul odors are typical expectations. However, water damage at your Scarsdale property may involve many other aspects. AdvantaClean of Westchester, Rockland, and Stamford delivers a comprehensive response after such incidents keeping you safe and saving your valuables. 

What other issues develop after water damage?

Your house may develop physical hazards or contamination from microbial organisms that thrive in wet environments. Physical hazards may be as simple as saturated floor surfaces becoming too slippery, leading to slip and fall accidents. They can also involve advanced issues like material deterioration weakening structural areas, which might collapse - ceilings are prone to this when significant water trapped within the cavity breaches the panels. Electrical hazards might also develop from such incidents if switches or power outlets are exposed. Water restoration efforts must address all these problems to be considered adequate.

How do you plan to resolve water damage? 

Water intrusion requires a speedy response since the longer your property remains submerged, the more problems crop up or worsen. However, planning is still necessary when carrying out water restoration. Otherwise, you may not get the desired outcomes. It's also possible to overlook some underlying issues. AdvantaClean of Westchester, Rockland, and Stamford takes time to analyze an incident. Our water restoration technicians do an initial walkthrough to determine how much water is involved, how far it spreads, and which materials it affects. The main advantage when we do such evaluations at your property is using advanced moisture meters to check the level of saturation in materials rather than relying only on physical observations. 

Information in abundance eases planning for water restoration because one readily identifies the kind and amount of resources needed. 

Typical resources needed to tackle water damage

  • Water extractors - different types, including regular or submersible pumps and portable or mounted vacuum extractors.

  • Drying equipment - it takes sustained evaporation and humidity control through air movers and dehumidifiers.

  • Cleaning equipment - Soils or stains left in materials by water may require physical force from tools like rotating brushes to dislodge the embedded soils.

  • Construction tools - demolishing and rebuilding property sections affected by water may be necessary, so cutting and drilling tools are required. 

Managing the costs of water-related incidents

Various expenses accumulate once water breaches a property, primarily from the deteriorating items which need repair or replacement. Additional costs may arise from seeking accommodation elsewhere or closing business premises. The good news is that you can take steps to manage costs minimizing the expenses you incur from an incident. Knowing whether your insurance covers water damage and the extent of the coverage are critical when addressing cost issues. Our professionals can help you review your policy to reveal what it includes or excludes.

AdvantaClean of Westchester, Rockland, and Stamford uses different approaches during water restoration to minimize costs. Expediting processes such as water extraction and drying is one strategy since it reduces the time your property remains inaccessible, controls material deterioration, and prevents the development of secondary issues such as mold. We use several units of whatever equipment we consider necessary to tackle the water intrusion at your property. For instance, we arrange several air movers in rooms to ensure faster evaporation. We also explore several restoration solutions, including specialized cleaning, refinishing, and resurfacing materials. In case they do not work, we recommend replacements. 

Documenting water damage incidents

When focused on resolving damage, it is easy to forget the need to document the loss details. However, loss documentation is essential since every incident is unique. Through documentation, you can identify reasons for the intrusion and possible interventions to help prevent such a problem in the future. 

Reasons for documenting damage

  • To ease the process of filing insurance claims

  • To ensure restoration reinstates pre-loss conditions

  • To help develop a prevention plan against future incidents
