Mitigation & Restoration after Water Damage 

Often, minor water damage doesn't seem 'that bad,' leaving many homeowners thinking that painting over the discoloration is sufficient. SERVPRO wants homeowners in New Haven to know that if any damage is more than superficial, any paint covering anything will most likely end up providing only temporary relief.

To protect your home in New Haven from water damage, we recommend assessing the area after any event involving the saturation of walls, floors, or other structural components. Because water gets into places you cannot see unaided, many customers are surprised when we show water or dampened areas underneath cabinetry.

Carpeting and its padding can retain tremendous amounts of moisture and slowly release it, damaging flooring and other nearby building materials. We can assist in undoing the damage by:

  • Extracting hidden water from different cavities,
  • Pre-treating surfaces against microbial infestation,
  • Cleaning and rebuilding your property, and
  • Providing standard deodorization techniques.

Getting the water out of enclosed or hidden spaces means we can dry everything faster. Less water means less damage and fewer locations. We have specialized equipment that helps us locate trapped water. We use the least destructive methods to open such areas when releasing trapped water.

Mold is one of the worst types of secondary water damage. Pre-treating susceptible surfaces with powerful antimicrobial agents keep such microbes from flourishing and causing problems. They do not require much to colonize an area inside your residence.

We clean everything up as we continue working, including as we begin rebuilding any structures that the water destroyed. Extensive damage from water can happen slowly over time, possibly due to a slow leak. Our General Contractor License number is 0635648.

Moisture can leave your home with a musty, off-smell. Some homeowners suspect water has caused damage in hidden areas of their homes because of this tell-tale scent. We use different ways to counteract these odors.
