SERVPRO Techs Perform Water Cleanup in Waterbury Properties

In Waterbury homes, there are two rooms most likely to receive the brunt of water damage. The first is the bathroom, and the second area of the house is the kitchen. Both of these rooms have cabinets, and the cleanup gets handled in similar ways.

When water removal services occur in Waterbury homes, SERVPRO technicians work to limit the house's disruptions and work around structural elements whenever possible. However, if water migrated behind or under cabinets or vanities, they may require controlled demolition to dry the wall cavities. Leaving behind moisture can result in secondary damages that have the potential to be costly.

Tracking water damage within a home is something SERVPRO technicians spend time doing to ensure they get all the water in the house. Different detection equipment has varying uses such as infrared cameras, probes, and visual inspections, the technicians can locate the different areas within the worksite that require attention. After finding cooler areas via an infrared camera, the technicians may remove the toe kick at the bottom of a kitchen cabinet to determine the moisture levels present and if seepage into the subfloor occurred. If the cabinets show signs of warping or are structurally unsound, the techs may need to remove them.

SERVPRO technicians rely on many professional water removal techniques and equipment such as: 

  • Use of attachments to get water underneath cabinets 
  • The use of weep holes in walls to avoid further deterioration
  • Use of controlled demolition on walls, ceilings, and cabinetry that is beyond restoration
