A Room in  Dobbs Ferry Residence Requires Attention after Water Damage

The bathroom can be a common area for a water damage event to occur. Because there are so many plumbing fixtures and piping within the walls of the small space, a single damage event can be destructive to both the building elements and the contents of the bathroom. We can help quickly.

Identifying the Cause

When water damage in Dobbs Ferry occurs, it can be challenging to clean and restore depending on the case. The rupture of plumbing lines, for example, can be more widespread and destructive than the bathroom area alone. Our production managers work with the customer to inspect the affected areas and determine what plumbing portions are involved and the mitigation actions necessary to help. Common water damage catalysts include:

  • Faucets
  • Pipe leaks
  • Separations
  • Bad drainage
  • Freezing

Wall Systems

Because most of the plumbing is stored within the wall systems, the entire structural cavity can become impacted when leaks or separations occur. With sensitive materials in this construction like wood framing, insulation, and surface drywall, resolving trapped water in these structural systems is critical.


Another consideration for affected areas is the damage to the plumbing network. With a contractor license, we can provide many of the repairs your property needs, including the reinstallation of impacted plumbing and fixtures. We determine the system's condition for any additional replacement needs for upcoming concerns as well. 


While installing water-resistant flooring is common in bathrooms, when these problems begin in the structure of cavities, it is not complicated for water to penetrate underneath the surface layer and start impacting sensitive subflooring options. Moisture detection tools must identify quickly when this migration occurs to respond with effective drying techniques.

Water damages frequently occur in bathrooms, so having a team of experienced professionals capable of helping quickly is beneficial. Our SERVPRO of Tarrytown / Elmsford crew features many WRT-Certified technicians and mitigation specialists. Give us a call now at (914) 358-9000.
