Water Strikes Fast

Flooding and water damage is very invasive. Water quickly spreads throughout your home and gets absorbed into floors, walls, furniture, and more. This Albany home suffered water damage in the kitchen resulting in the cabinets needing to be removed and replaced.

Wet Insulation Can Lead to Mold Growth if Left Unattended

If your home suffers from water damage, it may go deeper than you think. Water can seep into the walls, ceiling and insulation in your home and go unnoticed to the untrained eye. Unattended water in your insulation can then lead to mold growth. Call us today if you experience water damage!

Proper Moisture Readings Are Required When There is Water Damage

By using a Moisture Meter, SERVPRO can determine where in your home or business water damage might of affected the building components of your property. These instruments can let us know how wet the affected materials are, and when they have finally dried to their moisture level goals.

Water Loss Happens in the Middle of the Night

Water damage isn't an event you can schedule like a doctors appointment. Often times, a loss occurs in the middle of the night. Response time is critical to lessen the extent of the damage. At SERVPRO we are available 24/7 to assist with your needs.  We want to get you back "Like it never even happened."

Don't Wait Until it's Too Late to Address Water Damage

If you ever experience a water loss in your attic or bathroom, it's important to be sure the damage didn't go further than what initially meets the eye. If there is water left unaddressed it can lead to additional water damage in the ceiling which may go unnoticed until you see paint bubbles like you do here.

Water Damage can Require Demolition

Sometimes water damage to your Albany home can be so severe it ruins the insulation in both the walls and ceiling. As you can see in this picture, the ceiling has collapsed exposing insulation already. The X's marked on the walls indicates where demolition needs to be completed. Removing the wet insulation is imperative to prevent mold growth.

Water Damage can be Hidden

When water seeps into your Albany property, it can take less than 48 hours for the secondary damages to occur. Odors may begin to linger while mold growth may occur on various surfaces. If the water intrusion incident remains unattended for more than 48 hours, your wooden floor may start to warp, and the structural stability of your home may get affected.
