Mitigating Water Damage in Your Westhampton Kitchen

Entertaining guests often requires the use of your kitchen in your Westhampton home. While they might never see the area where their dinner party meal was prepared, you know how well you maintain it. Long absences can allow slow leaks to ruin cabinet and cupboard interiors, causing wood rot and rust.
 
In your home, any amount of water damage in Westhampton can cause health effects, primarily when located in the kitchen. Water increases the size of the pores in the wood, and this expansion allows microbial activity to flourish. Rusted areas can also affect you and your family's health. Water damage is more than highly unsightly. It is also unsanitary. SERVPRO can mitigate the damage caused by water leaking under cabinets in your kitchen. At the same time, we can also mitigate any water damage discovered in your bathroom.
 
We know you take pride in your property and we want to help you protect your investment. Water damage not only affects the immediate area, but it can also quickly spread by seeping into other structures or by condensing in other places after initially evaporating.
 
To detect these locations we look at your residence as a whole. We use moisture detection equipment to locate where the water that damaged your cabinetry traveled. Infrared imaging devices show us changes in temperature, a common indicator of unwanted moisture.
 
To achieve an appropriately arid interior environment, we bring in our powerful air movers. These direct air toward our desiccant machines after whisking moisture out of damp surfaces. Materials in your home can appear dry while still retaining moisture. We take readings of the moisture content until the material in question reaches a healthier, acceptable amount.
 
Wiping down the surfaces soiled as part of mitigation water damage helps remove anything that might continue to spread damage. We sanitize the affected areas in your kitchen and take note of anything requiring reconstruction or replacement. We do our best to keep these needs minimal by using the latest techniques developed for mitigation professionals. When we finish a job, the homes once again look “Like it never even happened.”
