We Handle All Stages & Causes of Water Damage

Keeping your home in Portsmouth clean isn't just for looks. Keeping on top of the things that can cause decay and serious destruction of the interior living space is crucial for your residence. When your home has water damage, it can steadily increase in the affected area and its intensity. Other related damage can also take root, leaving you with serious issues that become ever-costly.

Many times, homeowners are in the dark about water damage in their Portsmouth property. At SERVPRO, we handle this issue many times a year. We have the skills your home needs to ensure that such damage is minimized and restoration efforts are successful. Our efforts can help keep your home beautiful and stave off problems like mold infestations and unwanted odors.

Here are some tips on what damage from water might appear within your residence:

  • Odors that increase whenever the humidity rises
  • Increased water bills
  • Changes in the texture of structural elements

Odors from the changes caused by water become stronger if the humidity in the air increases. These more intense scents occur because the particles causing the odor are carried on the water vapor droplets. 

A drastic increase in monthly usage costs might only occur if a great amount of water finds its way through a hidden area of a broken pipe. If this is the case, we can locate the problem area and fix it for you. Then we can track the water's path and determine how much damage occurred. 

Extended exposure to water causes materials to change dramatically. Drywall crumbles into small chunky powdery pieces, with the paper peeling or bubbling. It can also become discolored. Wood accents can warp, curl, or split along the grain. Particle boards can fall apart into pieces if the glue disintegrates.

If you begin noticing these signs, call us, SERVPRO of The Seacoast, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester, and SERVPRO of Durham at (603) 433-4300. We can assist you with an effective response that leaves your home protected.
