Why SERVPRO Helps You Cope with Water Damage in Bristol Better

A water spill is a mixed bag of fortunes. On the one hand, it can lead to clean up in parts of your home that you never thought of cleaning since you occupied it. However, it is also likely to leave different kinds of damages that you have to work hard to fix. These damages range from staining of fabrics and deterioration materials like wood through warping, rotting, and microbial growth. Highly skilled technicians from SERVPRO can offer you services that reverse these damages or help you cope with the situation.  

Each case of water damage in Bristol is different depending on how the incident unfolds. If a pipe bursts when no one is home or a tap is left running, the water is likely to reach a vast section of the house ruining several contents. A small leak in a hidden part of the property might not cause such widespread damages, but since it might take time to notice, it creates a chance for microbial growth and rotting or other similar problems, which are harder to address. Our SERVPRO technicians, certified in different fields including ASD, Applied Structural Drying and Applied Microbial Remediation, allow us to respond to any situation that arises.  

Water has detrimental effects on almost every material when left submerged over extended periods. From our vast experience, we can anticipate different types of damage. In metals, the harm is limited to rust only. Organic materials like wood are damaged the most because they can warp, buckle, rot or develop mold. Wood also absorbs copious amounts of water, which can keep causing problems long after the initial incident. For example, failing to dry the lower side of floorboards can lead to cupping, and if not addressed, it can ruin the floor permanently. Using truck-mounted extractors and submersible pumps, our SERVPRO technicians can remove water before it causes severe damage. We also have specialized drying equipment like the injectidry system, which removes water from concealed spaces such as below floorboards.  

Some steps involved when fixing water damage are tedious or require special skills. For example, removing the carpet for drying or restorative cleaning is a tedious process. It also requires special skills to avoid damaging other fixtures like baseboards. Our SERVPRO technicians have the necessary tools and skills to remove and replace your carpet without damaging it.  

A water spill incident can be unbearable if not handled. Call SERVPRO of Kingsport / Bristol at (423) 245-5552 to help you cope. We're Faster To Size Disaster.
