When Rain Invades Your Roof And Causes Damaged Areas Throughout Your Bristol Home

During the spring months, Bristol receives a large amount of rain. While this precipitation benefits our lawns and gardens, small gaps in your roof can let this rain slip into your attic and cause problems. Gutters that have become misaligned can also send water up against your home, saturating siding and other sections of your home that allow moisture to pass through into your living space.

SERVPRO wants to assure homeowners that we have the proper equipment, skills and experience, and dedication to rid Bristol houses of water damage and its effects. We know how to use highly effective methods of mitigation to stop moisture from damaging unharmed areas of a home while restoring areas that already succumbed to the effects of exposure to moisture and water.

Because moisture travels easily and rapidly inside walls, this moisture can also end up behind cabinets, as well as underneath these structures. We use thermal imaging cameras to find such places. Cabinets are only one location that water tends to hide. We also find hidden water in other places.

Your walls that form a barrier against the outside contain insulation to keep the environment inside your home under control. When this insulation becomes wet, it loses the ability to keep warm air where you want it, allowing the energy to pass through the wall. Hollow walls inside your home that separate rooms and hallways often do not contain any insulation. The drying process for these walls occurs much faster because we do not need to extract any insulation.

Ceilings can also end up not only saturated with moisture but used as a holding basin for unwanted water. When moisture invades a ceiling, it can leave a stain. Discolorations can take a while to develop. A sudden change in a ceiling's shape, however, can mean water from a storm is pushing the center of the ceiling down with its weight.

SERVPRO technicians know which are the most effective ways for these situations. From drilling holes behind a cabinet, at the base of walls, or to drain a water-laden ceiling, as well as many other techniques that help restore homes and mitigate water damage to prevent further destruction, we use the latest in technology and restoration science to make everything “Like it never even happened.”
