Why SERVPRO Is The Answer For Water Cleanup In Lincoln Village

Water is essential to a comfortable life in Lincoln Village. As long as your home’s plumbing, appliances, and fixtures do their jobs, it is rare to find a need for water removal or intensive drying. When a pipe bursts, a hose disconnects, or a toilet overflows, suddenly an excess of water makes life difficult. Large quantities of uncontained water are best managed by professionals with the equipment and training to mitigate the damage caused.

Everyone performs minor water cleanup duties in Lincoln Village, sponging up a spill or closing an open window during a rainstorm. It can be hard to determine when a water mishap becomes a water emergency requiring expert assistance. Allowing water to collect can lead to secondary damage, which is why we offer water damage assessment.

When water soaks into structural components like drywall or hardwood floors they can swell and distort. Once these building materials warp or crumble its structural integrity can become an issue. Building materials holding excessive moisture for more than 24 to 48 hours expose the home to the risk of mold growth. These severe side effects of water damage make it clear why SERVPRO crews need to respond.

Water cleanup must be thorough and followed by a specific drying protocol. The IICRC develops international standards for water loss mitigation. Our technicians master the many aspects of water removal, including detecting moisture levels and searching for hidden pockets of water with infrared scanning devices. Applying these standards consistently delivers the best results, and that is why SERVPRO should be called during a water emergency.

Depending on the source of the water, contamination can be an issue. Clean or Category 1 water usually can be pumped or extracted for disposal in the municipal sanitary system. Category 2 and Category 3 water, also called Gray and Black water contains increasing amounts of contaminants and might need disposal as a hazardous waste. Sewer backups and overland flood have a high probability of animal or human waste and chemicals. Handling this water can expose individuals to toxins, clarifying why SERVPRO’s trained and properly protected and equipped technicians are best prepared to clean up contaminated water.

SERVPRO of Stockton is the obvious choice when a water emergency needs cleanup. Schedule an assessment by calling (209) 477-3090.
