SERVPRO Techs Perform Water Cleanup With as Little Disruption as Possible to Dover Homes

Two rooms in a Dover home are most likely to be on the receiving end of water damage: the kitchen and bathroom. Both of these rooms have a large amount of plumbing, and both usually have some cabinets, which makes the challenges during mitigation similar in many ways. 

When SERVPRO techs handle water removal in Dover properties, the goal is always to limit disruptions to the home and get the job completed promptly, including leaving the structural elements in place whenever possible such as bathroom vanities and kitchen cabinets. 

Since water tends to migrate within a home, tracking the path taken by the water is crucial. SERVPRO technicians have many devices they rely on, along with visual inspection of the worksite. After removing the toe kick at the bottom of a cabinet or vanity, the techs can use their detection equipment to determine the moisture level present and if seepage into the subfloor under the cabinet has occurred. Whenever possible, the techs work hard to leave the built-in and furnishings in place during water damage mitigation services. 

Examples of Water Removal Techniques Used by SERVPRO

The ability of the technicians to adapt their equipment to any environment assists with the best outcome on every water cleanup job. 

  • Use of extensions and attachments on equipment to get under cabinets when possible
  • Drilling weep holes to drain walls that have wicked moisture
  • Use of controlled demo when needed to stop the deterioration of an entire wall or ceiling

SERVPRO of Dover / Stillwater at (973) 810-2825 supports the Dover community for all sizes and types of water removal services. The sooner the restoration begins, the better the outcome.
