Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Lake Grove, NY

Because Lake Grove is positioned amid so many of the attractions of Long Island, it is no surprise that the region is home to more than 11,000 people and is an attractive tourism location for those passing through the area. Between the current residents and travelers, the possibilities for water disasters never wane throughout the year, making it vital for restoration technicians like our SERVPRO team to stay prepared for disasters as they happen. 

Water Removal Techniques for Lake Grove Homes

After a water disaster event, many areas of your home might contend with several inches or feet of standing water. This pooling can begin to absorb into sensitive materials like flooring and wall systems to allow the migration of moisture to more challenging areas of the house. For this reason, water removal is among the most critical steps that can get taken during the mitigation phase. There are multiple tools and strategies to address standing water, but most typically, the machines and devices selected include:

  • Wet vacuums
  • Trash pumps
  • High-pressure pumps

Water Damage Cleanup and Drying in Lake Grove

Cleaning up after a water damage incident requires multiple actions taken by our experienced restoration professionals. Drying is among the most important of these stages to return a property to its original condition, which involves several evaporation strategies grounded by the use of centrifugal and axial air movers, portable electric heaters, and varying dehumidifiers.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
