Fast Winter Water Damage Repair in Amherst

You probably look up at the stars, but seldom consider looking up when you're at home. Most homeowners do not think about overhead spaces in their Amherst homes. An attic is a convenient storage place for old furniture, but seldom a source for concern. The attic above your head can suffer accidental winter water damages when an ice dam causes leakage in your crawlspace. If that happens, it's important to act quickly to mitigate the damages. SERVPRO is available 24 hours a day so that you can reach us right away. That's why we're Faster to Any Size Disaster.  

Winter water removal can be tricky in Amherst, and our IICRC certified technicians can handle it so you can get back to your life quickly. There are four keys to getting your home dry quickly, and we can address them all.

The amount of water you need to have removed effects how long it takes. SERVPRO Professionals take the time to extract as much water as possible. Doing so is 1200 times more efficient than dehumidifiers alone.

Temperature affects how rapidly your space dries. We bring in specialized equipment and heaters for unheated attics to speed up the process.

Humidity is the next challenge. The best way to remove the remaining water is to evaporate it and then use dehumidifiers.

Air movement is the last crucial factor. A humidifier can only remove water from air that reaches it. We use the proper ratio of humidifiers to air movers so that you can get back to enjoying your space sooner.  

These are not the only concerns when you need water removal and damage mitigation in your attic. SERVPRO Professionals can arrange to move your belongings to a dry area. Water damage raises humidity, and that means smells are transmitted easily. We have technicians that specialize in deodorizing and even upholstery cleaning. We take care of everything so you can feel “Like it never even happened."  

When accidental winter water damages have you looking up answers, there's no need to stress. Call SERVPRO of Hampshire County at (413) 324-1300 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
