Simple Steps That Make A Big Difference During Water Damage Restoration In Northampton

Water spills cause multiple problems, many of which are challenging to address. However, simple steps taken at the right time can help manage some of these problems, easing the water damage restoration process.

Removing wet material odors

Mold development is possible after water damage incidents in Northampton. One of the top signs of mold is the presence of a musty smell in the affected property. However, mold takes at least 24 to 48 hours to start developing. Sometimes, odors similar to mold develop around wet materials, so our SERVPRO technicians apply deodorizers that remove such odors, allaying any fears about mold developing in your property. We use misters or direct sprayers to apply the deodorizers.

Protecting contents

Contents are part of the property, and the water damage restoration process involves constant manipulation of the contents to create room for restoration processes. It is possible to damage the contents in the course of restoration, thus increasing the costs of the loss. Our SERVPRO technicians take simple precautions to protect the contents. For example, we ensure dust covers on upholstery items do not touch wet carpets. We tie up long drapes that touch the carpet to prevent stains. When a water spill originates from an elevated position, we wipe contents with towels to remove any water that splashes on them.

Establishing drying zones

Focusing the available resources on achievable goals helps expedite the restoration process. Since water loss incidents rarely affect the entire house, creating drying zones is one way to maximize available resources. Our SERVPRO technicians establish containment zones by sealing off openings such as doors connecting the wet areas to the unaffected sections of the property with plastic sheets. We can create a drying zone in a single room or several adjacent rooms.

Simple steps can make a huge difference when restoring water damage. Call SERVPRO of Hampshire County at (413) 324-1300 to help manage the loss at your property. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
