Using Water Damage Repair to Undo a Storm's Effect 

When a disaster happens to your home in Newington, you want to go back to before the disaster happened, when things were clean and safe, secure, and familiar. SERVPRO can help your family do this with our professional water damage repair methods.

We carry out different activities when we work at a residence in Newington. Water damage repair work after a storm often requires sanitizing surfaces. We use approved agents for this, with many falling under the botanicals category. These are much friendlier to the environment and your home but perform excellently.

Surfaces can harbor pathogens and other debris. To make the affected area safe again, "Like it never even happened," we do the following:

  • Clear the area of debris
  • Rinse with water 
  • Apply sanitizing agent
  • Allow the area to dry

Debris might consist of nothing more than leaves or silt, or it could include heavier items or contain filth like sewage. We have the personal protective equipment for such instances. Because we work well as a team, this debris removal can happen quickly.

After we clear the area of solid debris, we rinse everything with clean water to flush out additional soiling. Any soil can harbor pathogens, and its presence also makes the sanitizing agent less effective.

We use spraying as a method for applying sanitizers. We might opt for spray bottles or a backpack-sized tank, depending on the size of the area we are treating. We scale it to the area needing to be treated, meaning you don't pay for materials we never use in cleaning up your property.

Afterward, we need the area to dry out. If necessary, we use an air mover to speed up drying. Sometimes turning the heat up a bit on your HVAC system is sufficient.

Once the area is clean and sanitary, we can move forward with tearing out destroyed materials, measuring for new ones, and getting those new materials installed.

SERVPRO of Newington / Central Hartford knows how to make a disaster a thing of the past for you. Call us at (860) 667-9191 for fast service.
