Water damage on a wall. SERVPRO of Newark, Southwest Fremont is ready to take on your property damage. Give us a call today!

SERVPRO Professionals Have Thorough Equipment to Dry the Water Damage You Cannot See.

Water damages are rarely only surface problems. Migrating moisture can penetrate porous structural elements, fixtures, and contents throughout your home as it moves to new areas. Stopping this spread and drying out the damage must get prioritized.

What might even seem like lesser water damage for Newark homes could hide some other conditions that you cannot see on the surface. Our SERVPRO team uses sophisticated moisture detection devices to identify the presence of damp pockets in construction materials and suspected moisture in structural cavities like the ceiling space or behind wall systems.

Are There Signs of Water Migration? 

  • Structural Deterioration
  • Drywall Swelling
  • Soaked Carpeting
  • Dripping Ceilings
  • Mold Spotting

When you look to identify where water has moved to without the detection tools available to our SERVPRO team, you are often looking for one of these conditions. In some situations, these signs can develop days after you believe that the problem has gotten resolved. Professional drying ensures that all potentially affected areas of your home return to normal before our technicians leave.

How Do You Dry Where You Cannot Reach? 

A substantial obstacle our experts face on drying tasks is removing moisture without unnecessarily removing construction materials as well. In some situations, it is possible to preserve surface materials by drying out structural cavities. We can utilize specialty tools like positive and negative pressure systems to manipulate evaporation in these spaces instead of removing drywall to access it.

Choosing professional restoration after water damage is a decision that can give you peace of mind that worse conditions do not appear later. Our SERVPRO of Newark, Southwest Fremont team can help you through nearly every phase of mitigation and restoration with a full-service approach that even includes in-house residential contractors. Give us a call today at (510) 737-8793.
