For Help with Primary and Secondary Water Damage in Monticello – Call SERVPRO

Many homeowners open windows, turn on fans and mop up water after a water leak in their Monticello homes. Removing visible water is a great step; however, if there is water inside walls and cavities and the fans are not combined with dehumidifiers, humidity levels inside the home can remain high for an extended period. High moisture levels in the air inside homes can cause secondary damage. This damage may include delamination of carpets, buckling and cupping of hardwood floors, ceiling tiles moistening and crumbling, wallpaper falling from walls, drywall swells losing strength, and high humidity can also lead to mold infestations.

SERVPRO provides emergency services water damage restoration for homeowners in Monticello and adjacent areas. Our fast response (Less than four hours from your call) and water removal and damage mitigation action can significantly reduce the possibility of secondary damage after a water leak. Secondary damage from a water leak occurs when the humidity levels are high, and components inside your home absorb moisture and lose integrity. Ceiling tiles may crumble, drywall can swell and lose structural integrity, and wallpaper glue may soften, causing the wallpaper to fall.

In high humidity conditions, mold colonies can form in 24 to 48 hours and give off a strong, musty odor. Mold can cause health effects.

SERVPRO’s fast response and deployment of water removal equipment can limit the primary water damage and prevent secondary damage to other components of your home. Our services include:

  • Water removal services
  • Water damage repair and restoration of primary damage
  • Prevention of secondary water damage from high humidity levels
