Removing Water From Walls Is A Job For Professionals.

Water in the walls of your Dover bedroom might not seem like a pressing issue, however, without proper mitigation, the damage can seep from the walls to the rest of your room. 

How Does SERVPRO Remove Water From Walls?

SERVPRO water removal in Dover homes starts with wet vacs and portable water extractors that allow our teams to clean up water from confined spaces like your walls. Once the standing water has been removed, our technicians can begin the drying process that consists of: 

Using moisture meters, moisture sensors, and thermo-hygrometers to gauge the extent and severity of moisture in your walls. 

Drilling holes in your baseboard to allow air to flow into the damaged sections of the wall. 

Removing wallpaper from parts of your bedroom wall to assist the drying process. 

We make sure to drill holes only when necessary, and we can consult with you throughout the drying process to ensure that both you and your insurance adjustor are aware of the extent of damages. 

What If Water Leaks Onto My Bed, Can SERVPRO Save it? 

It is common for the head of beds to be against the wall. This arrangement can be problematic if water seeps out of the wall and onto your pillow and blankets. Fortunately, professionals from SERVPRO have experience with upholstery water damage mitigation. When drying damaged furniture, we can:

Treat furniture stains by wetting the furniture evenly

Extract the upholstery

Focus on drying buttons, zippers, and other metal attachments to avoid rust.

Tent your cushions and sheets around air movers and dehumidifiers to quickly dry them. 

Our teams act fast to enact these drying procedures to prevent mildew growth and permanent stains.

Without a quick restoration, your bedroom can turn into a home for mold and bacteria. To help with mitigating these risks, call SERVPRO of Dover/Stillwater at (973) 810-2825.
