Many Centereach homeowners attempt to clean up water spills and leaks themselves. A week or two later, they may notice a musty smell around the area where the leak occurred, or perhaps the floor is buckling because the wood absorbed moisture and began to swell. A mold infestation may have set in, and if repairs are not undertaken, it only gets worse and much more expensive to remove.

SERVPRO provides water damage restoration services in Centereach and surrounding areas. We also offer mold mitigation services along with reconstruction services if needed. Our general contractor's license is H0456340000.

Water leaks in the kitchen or bathroom areas are common and can be hidden from view until suddenly one day, you're stepping in water. Mopping up the visible water is a good idea, but what about the water and moisture inside the walls or under the cupboards? Mold can grow in these areas and cause structural damage. SERVPRO has the equipment to find these hard to reach places, including:

Moisture detection equipment behind walls

Water extraction equipment for hard to reach areas

Dehumidification and air movers

Odor Removal

Sanitizing Agents, and Antimicrobial Treatments

We know what areas to assess for moisture, and we have the knowledge and equipment to remove it before mold or mildew can gain a foothold.

What are the Techniques Used by Our Team?

Infrared cameras
