Water Mitigation in Laconia Starts with Our Roof Tarping Services
Area Homes Need Water Mitigation After a Bad Storm
Spring weather can range from a gentle pattering on your Laconia home's roof to raging, windy storms capable of knocking over trees and causing other destruction. SERVPRO's water mitigation team is always ready to start undoing the damage caused by bad weather.
Many times, when working with property owners in Laconia who need water mitigation work, we start with covering their home's roof. Tarps prevent any future rain from getting inside the residence. Insurance adjusters typically require this protective step because substantial (and unnecessary) damage can more easily occur without a protective tarp.
Industry guidelines recommend that a tarp covers a roof for no longer than three months. We do our best to have most, if not all, of the preparatory work done long before this period. Other mitigation tasks we do after a storm include:
- Extraction of moisture,
- Cleaning and sanitization, and
- Performing minor repairs.
Storm moisture gets in through the roof, dampness in the air (windows), or via lower levels where water can seep in. Basements are prone to this, although the water can evaporate and migrate to other areas of the structure. We use air movers, heaters, desiccant machines, and other equipment to dry your home's interior.
Rainwater might seem clean, but it can wash debris into your home from the outdoors. We get this all cleaned up, and where needed, use disinfecting agents to ensure cleanliness for your family's safety.
Mitigating damage after a storm can involve making minor repairs. We can board up windows or doors with cracked or broken glass, move furniture off soaked carpeting, remove wet, damaged materials to prevent the spread of water, and much more.
Our goal with mitigation tasks is to reduce the total cost of recovering after a disaster, regardless of how large or small. Call SERVPRO of The Lakes Region at (603) 527-2518.
