There really are a few key FAQ's to know if you've had water damage in your home in Western Dutchess County:

What do I do first? W

When it comes to water damage, the cause of the loss must be repaired first. Call a plumber to get the problem repaired right away.

We highly recommend you then file a claim with your insurance company.

Then, call SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County, no matter the size of the disaster and no matter what time of day. Our dedicated professionals will gather all needed information and schedule an estimator to meet you.

Do I have to worry about mold?

Fixing the leak and drying out all affected areas in quick fashion helps stops the growth of mold spores. Mold likes warm and damp environments, that’s why you’ll often see it in basements, crawl spaces and sometimes attics. As part of our drying process, we use green- based anti-microbial products to inhibit any mold growth, in addition to SERVPRO’s proven mold prevention techniques and protocol. Time is key here, the quicker the areas are remedied, the less of an issue mold growth will be.

How long does this whole process take?
