Nobody who has ever had a water loss thought it would happen to them.

Any part of your home can be impacted by a water loss. Whether it’s your attic, living room, bedroom, bathroom or finished basement… Unfortunately water does not show mercy once it’s introduced to the inside structure of your home. Water losses can either be from natural or “man-made” causes. In the winter, water damage in the attic often occurs due to natural disasters, such as ice dams or storm damage to the roof causing water to penetrate the building. The attic is the highest point of your home, and water settles downwards. This is why timely mitigation is so important. Water damage on the main floors are often from “man-made” disasters, such as faulty appliances or plumbing. During this time of the year, the most common thing we see are burst pipes due to the cold.

When your Plymouth area home falls victim to water damage, effective removal of excess water is always the first priority. Damage from flooding, a burst pipe or a clogged toilet can quickly spread throughout your home. There are a few things you can do while SERVPRO of Plymouth/Wareham is on the way to remedy the issue. Some measures to minimize the problem include looking for and turning off your water . You should also attempt to contain the leak by using old towels or putting buckets directly under the leaks.

Water removal at the ceiling needs significant skill to ensure thoroughness and minimize the amount of demolition required. Using the right equipment also helps to remove all the moisture, particularly during the drying process. Our staff includes IICRC trained WRT, Water Remediation Technicians, and ASD, Applied Structural Drying Specialists. We use techniques such as punching weep-holes to release water from the roof and minimize the weight on the panels without the need for massive demolition. Time is of the essence. In the event that the leakage is caught before the water penetrates deep into the ceiling panels and joists, demolition can be avoided entirely. This can make the drying process more complicated, but drastically reduces demolition costs. Our technicians combine the use of specialized tools with advanced expertise. In some cases, we can make dehumidification more effective by covering a wet ceiling with a plastic barrier and venting it to a dehumidifier. We use a wide range of moisture control equipment and techniques to ensure your home or business is dried out correctly.
