The key to avoiding costly future restoration is to handle every water problem as a real threat to your property. Even small water damages have the potential to cause serious structural issues over time. A small amount of water can lift or buckle flooring, peel paint or wallpaper or cause damage to drywall or plaster.

SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights has the equipment, training and experience to find and dry unseen water to help minimize secondary damages (any damage that's not caused directly by the flooding incident) occur.  You can take some immediate steps to help contain the damage. Dehumidify the area as well as possible.  Remove as much water as possible by mopping and moving saturated rugs and other saturated contents outside or to another dry area, protect the surface from the affected contents.

The proper response and utilizing the appropriate equipment makes a difference in reducing the damage, and consequently the rebuild during any size water loss.

When every minute matters, employees and equipment must be counted on to perform. Please call us at 216-464-4498 and SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights will respond to your call with fast action service and a full range of drying equipment and knowledge to make it “Like it never even happened.”
