SERVPRO Flexibility Sustains Morristown Water Restoration

A faster conclusion of any property disaster is essential to restore normalcy and minimize recovery costs, among other things. In case of water damage, rapid mitigation can prevent secondary deterioration and inconveniences that limit the usage of the property. However, extraneous factors can interfere with the restoration of your Morristown property.

Even when seeking to conclude water damage restoration in your Morristown home in good time, you should always question the implications of such a speedy conclusion. If it is too costly in terms of the money spent or precipitates the loss of other valuable things and your well-being, it might not be advisable to pursue a speedy process. SERVPRO uses a balanced approach that expedites the process but streamlines any issues that would otherwise become obstacles.

Hindrances affecting water restoration

  • Safety hazards
  • Active water sources
  • Microbial growth

Water accumulation can make a property hazardous since it leaves surfaces slick, and some materials deteriorate structurally over time. Wetness in power outlets and switches creates electrical hazards, while contaminants dissolved in water or stagnation create biological hazards. These issues need to be addressed before water restoration begins. SERVPRO crews do not have to wait long since we are equipped with various PPE resources, including hard hats, rubber boots, and heavy-duty gloves.

Stopping Leaks for Restoration

Restoring a property after water intrusion involves steps such as extracting stagnant water and humidity control. However, such actions cannot help if the water source keeps replenishing what is removed. Therefore, stopping the water source is a priority. Most pipe leaks can be quickly addressed by shutting off the main supply valves. However, if the pipe is linked to a cistern or other internal storage, that does not provide the final solution. Our SERVPRO technicians can help find temporary fixes as you wait for a permanent plumbing fix allowing restoration to proceed.

Ways to stop water leaks

  • Using pipe clamps
  • Installing repair sleeves
  • Using rubber pipe connectors
