Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

We Understand the Value of a Fast Response to Disasters | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

Don't wait to get water damage taken care of!

When disaster strikes your home or business, and it is your home or livelihood on the line, time becomes an especially precious commodity. You don’t have the benefit of waiting for help—you need it right away.

A rapid response is crucial. We understand that, so responding faster to any size disaster is more than just a slogan to us.

Why a Quick Response Is So Important

It’s your belongings or business on the line, time is not a luxury you have regarding disaster cleanup. This is especially true when there has been a water damage event. Damage can be occur in various ways like flooding, appliance and/or plumbing failures, storm damage and even fire damage caused by the water that is used to extinguish fires.

In a matter of minutes, water can spread throughout your property saturating everything it comes into contact with. Walls, floors, upholstery and your belongings are fast casualties of water.

The effects of water damage within the first 24 hours include:

  • Drywall swelling and breaking down
  • Metal surfaces beginning to tarnish
  • Furniture starts to swell and crack
  • Dyes and inks from cloth and paper items spreading and staining
  • There will be a musty odor

The damage continues to worsen as time goes on. In as little as 48 hours to as long as a week later, you could begin to see:

  • The growth and spreading of mold and mildew
  • Swelling and warping of doors, windows and studs
  • Metal beginning to rust and corrode
  • Paint beginning to blister
  • Wood flooring swelling and warping
  • The possibilities of serious bio-hazard contamination

If water damage is left unchecked for over a week, it will lead to a greatly increased restoration time and costs and will also impact structural safety.
