How Our Technicians Will Save Your Brunswick Home After A Water Damage Incident

What To Expect From Brunswick Professional Water Cleanup

When an appliance fails or the kids let a sink overflow, an astonishing amount of water can spread throughout your Brunswick home. A cracked residential water heater held up to 50 gallons, and if the rupture goes unnoticed, the supply line keeps flowing. The standard flow of a bathroom sink is 2.2 gallons per minute, meaning a 10-minute distracting phone call might spill more than 20 gallons out the door and down the hall.

Professional help is required for Brunswick residential water cleanup. The sheer bulk of water collecting in the lowest parts of the affected space is beyond the capacity of a household wet/dry vacuum to manage. Another consideration is that the visible standing water is only part of the problem. Water migrates away from its origin, flooding downstairs and through cracks into building cavities. It also seeps under and into porous structural components.

SERVPRO has the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained managers and technicians to approach water cleanup efficiently, following industry best practices. We also stock a complete inventory of state-of-the-art water removal and structural drying equipment on our service vehicles.

We arrive, assess, and plan your water cleanup project as soon as possible after your first call, answered 24/7. Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) immediately position submersible pumps in water deeper than two inches, also using wanded extractors to mitigate the spread of moisture on carpets and bare floors. Thermal imaging devices help us locate water trapped behind structures, which we access by employing controlled demolition strategies like weep holes and flood cuts.

Our technicians use sensitive moisture meters to detect the level of water absorbed by structural components. This data forms the basis for an applied structural drying goal. Once the standing and trapped waters evacuate, SERVPRO positions air movers and heaters to accelerate the transfer of water from the structures into the air as vapor. Desiccant and evaporative dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air, containing it for disposal outside your home.
