SERVPRO of Marlborough Can Help You Remediate the Water Damage Inside of Your Residence!

No Marlborough homeowner wants to discover water damage on their property. Home damages of any kind can cause unprecedented stress on the occupants of said house. However, it is a comfort to know that there is professional help nearby all day and all night hours.

Imagine a situation where you come back from a grocery errand and find your Marlborough kitchen flooded with water. The water supply line running to your sink had rusted significantly and finally broke down under the wear of time. Water gushed from the line and soaked the cupboard base, as well as the hardwood floor. It continued to spread and then settled under your fridge and stove. In a short amount of time, your small kitchen floor became sopping wet.

What Might Happen to My Kitchen if I Wait Too Long to Get Help? 

Water damage in Marlborough should be dealt with as quickly as possible. If you swiftly get help for your home, it can help ensure smooth remediation. The longer that excess moisture sits, the more damage can accumulate. Without restoration, excess water can:

  • Cause wooden floor to bubble, swell, crack, and split
  • Wooden vanities and cupboards can absorb water and split
  • Appliances can rust
  • Mold can grow 

Getting help for your home as soon as possible can help ensure remediation costs are as low as possible.

If you can avoid any result of standing water, it would be mold damage. Mold can cause health effects in the individuals living in your home. Furthermore, it can damage any organic materials in your home, such as wooden framing. Should you find excess moisture in your home, it is essential to get help within seventy-two hours to avoid microbial growth.

How Do I Know SERVPRO Technicians Are Well Trained? 

Here at SERVPRO, we always try to ensure our technicians have the newest and latest information. From their first day, our technicians are continually being trained and learning new information. Most of our techs:

  • Are certified by the Institution of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)
  • Undergo many training scenarios before they get out onto the field 
  • Participate in new training workshops and scenarios throughout their career to ensure they know the latest techniques and technology

Trust SERVPRO to have your back when you are in your time of need. We're always available to help, no matter the day of the week or the time of day.

What Equipment Can SERVPRO Use to Mitigate the Damage in My House?

Our technicians are trained to use many advanced technological devices. To mitigate the damage in your kitchen, we can: 

  • Use wet/dry vacuums and extractors to remove standing water from your kitchen
  • Remove toe kicks and dust-guards to remove water from beneath your cupboards and appliances 
  • Set up drying equipment, such as flood drying mats, dehumidifiers, and air movers, to reduce excess moisture

Flood drying mats can help reduce moisture by pulling water up from the base of your floors, using intense suction. Our technicians can also use air-blasting tubes to provide dry air in tight and small spaces, which are hard to reach. Should mold damage have set in already, we can also use devices such as air scrubbers to reduce the musty smell associated with it.

What If Deconstruction Needs to Happen? Can SERVPRO Do That? 

Occasionally, water damage can, unfortunately, go beyond just remediating it. If porous materials begin to show signs of mold growth, our technicians can: 

  • Make flood cuts to walls that have been affected and soaked by water to minimize mold growth
  • Take apart cupboards and remove any material beyond repair
  • Pull up any flooring which has become too warped 

Our technicians can handle any deconstruction that needs to happen inside of your home. Furthermore, in some cases, we can handle reconstruction too. If we cannot provide reconstruction services, we can help you get in contact with a reputable contractor who can.

SERVPRO can try to help return your home to its pre-damaged state if we use many techniques in conjunction with our advanced equipment. We can find hidden pockets of water with moisture meters and infrared cameras. We believe in doing a thorough job and always want to try and return your home to you, "Like it never even happened."

If you ever find your home in need of water restoration services, get the help you need immediately. Reach out to a representative of SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord by dialing the number (978) 486-9868. No matter the time of the day, we're available to help you when you need it.
