Drying Decisions for Portsmouth Homes After Water Losses 

We would estimate that with every water emergency that threatens a Portsmouth residence, there are hundreds of drying decisions that must get made in real-time. Mitigation is one of the most vital elements of recovery and restoration, and this phase is where most of these drying decisions are necessary. Understanding the concerns and the position of our SERVPRO restorers can allow you to appreciate several of these challenging categories. 

Water damage in Portsmouth homes can affect the property in countless ways, so a thorough inspection and committed extraction and drying can help to reduce unnecessary losses. Considering how widespread the damage can become after only a brief time, several immediate decisions must get made while our restoration professionals begin mitigation tasks, including: 

  • Debris removal
  • Extraction of standing water
  • Focused drying with air movers
  • Cleaning surfaces and contents 

Salvage vs. Reconstruct 

One of the steadiest choices that a responding technician must address in these situations involves whether it is cost-effective to attempt to dry saturated material or tear it out and replace it with new materials altogether. Our in-house SERVPRO general contractors can help by including controlled demolition in with other mitigation. 

Efficient Drying  

Choosing the right path for drying out water damaged materials and contents is a vital decision as well. While all options have some level of potential successes, finding the most efficient approach is something that saves the customer and time and money. From air movers and drying mats to positive pressure systems and carpet wands, our team can help. 

Structural Weaknesses  

Issues like sagging ceilings and deteriorating wall systems pose a more significant threat to your home and its occupants. Without addressing these structural concerns with our in-house contractors, your family might be at risk of collapses. 

Many drying and recovery choices must get made on every water loss emergency that threatens area properties. The decisions made by our competent staff can save our customers time and money. No matter how our SERVPRO of The Seacoast restoration specialists can help, you can reach us 24/7 at (603) 433-4300.
