Effective Water Cleanup After Setauket Roof Damage
There’s Water in the Attic, Now What?
When the weather compromises the roof, your attic can become rapidly overwhelmed. This confined space requires drying, extraction, and cleanup processes.
What Materials Are Ruined?
The first step in starting water damage clean up in your Setauket attic is evaluating the damage. Cataloging the loss in the building, including materials that must get removed, helps determine the ideal recovery solutions. Often personal belongings and treasured memories are stored here.
Tracking moisture damage and subsequent deterioration uses tools like:
- Thermal imagery
- Moisture sensors
- Probing detection devices
Placing Drying Equipment in Confined Spaces
We have many surface cleaning products that can help to remove soils and contaminants from the attic structure. Effective cleanup of the house must include drying. High-velocity air movers are a vital component of the evaporative drying process. When placed at an angle to the wall, we can increase the square footage of the wet surface area blasted with the centrifugal air movers.
The second part of water damage cleanup for the house is regulating the airborne moisture that might result in mold growth. As air movers work to evaporate surface water on wet materials, dehumidifiers keep relative humidity manageable to ensure that this drying is continuous and productive.
