SERVPRO Can Fix All Water Damage Issues in Dunkirk

Whenever your home suffers water damage, it is important to act fast. More damage is likely to occur if you wait longer before addressing the issue – which may make the restoration process more expensive. Once you get in touch with our technicians, we can respond quickly and restore your property to its former state.

Our SERVPRO technicians can assess and restore all water damage incidents in your Dunkirk Home. For instance, if your home has a leaking roof, several problems can arise when the water seeps into the structure. Expect some of the following challenges whenever your roof leaks:

  • Mold growth: Mold spores are always suspended in the air, and they start to grow whenever they land on a moist surface. When your roof leaks, it provides the perfect conditions for them to grow.
  • Damage to electrical and insulation systems: Your attic's insulation can suffer considerable damage when it comes into contact with the water. As time goes by, it becomes less effective and exposes your electrical systems to possible damage. It may eventually lead to a fire hazard or increased energy costs if not addressed.
  • Walls and ceilings damaged: Seeping water will likely reach the paint, plaster, and drywall on the ceiling and walls. If not addressed as soon as possible, it may lead to structural damage, peeling paint, and nasty stains.
  • Weakened structures: When wood and rafters get exposed to water for prolonged periods, they may weaken and interfere with your building's structural integrity. In instances of extensive water damage, the ceiling can even collapse.

Our SERVPRO technicians have attended to such incidents before and have the technology and experience to restore your home to its preloss condition. For example, when addressing the mold menace, we use negative air machines to create a negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated region. Using air scrubbers can also prevent mold spores from spreading to uncontaminated parts of the building.

Do not let mold or water damage stress you when SERVPRO of Dunkirk is there to help. Call us at (716) 952-6401 at any time of the day and allow us to fix the issue. Remember that We're Faster To Any Size Disaster and highly rated in the region.
