Undiscovered Leak and Water Damage

Leaks from piping, roofs and appliances can cause water damages that can go unnoticed for weeks, even months. Attempting to clean up water from a leak can lead to further damage or contamination if not handled properly.

Undiscovered leaks and moisture build-up can cause damage to floors, walls and ceilings, leading to soft dry wall, warped floors and ceilings, or more serious problems. Although the damage may go unnoticed for an extended period of time, timely and proper cleanup is vital to the restoration of personal belongings and your property.

Our Thermal Imaging equipment can detect even the smallest amounts of moisture. After locating the water damage, we are trained in water extraction and drying to help return your home or business to pre-loss condition in most cases.

We are equipped with a full line of cleanup and restoration services to handle water damages caused by leaks and excessive moisture. Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, our SERVPRO specialists can help protect your property and belongings from further damage.

So, before you risk doing further damage by attempting to clean up the water yourself, call us - the cleanup and restoration professionals. We've worked for over 35 years to make water damage like it never even happened.

A Fire in One Room Can Damage an Entire Home

There's no such thing as a small fire. Regardless of the size of the event, a fire in one room can damage belongings and surfaces throughout a home and cause odors that may last for years.

National fire statistics indicate that a residential fire occurs approximately every 90 seconds somewhere in the United States. However, when an Insured suffers a fire, only one fire matters. Your belongings are a treasure of life, and a reflection of hard work and achievements. Photographs, books, and other personal items have a value that cannot be put into words. SERVPRO of Fairfield Franchise Professionals have the ability to help restore your belongings.

Emergency Fire Damage Tips:

  • Limit movement to prevent further damage
  • Place clean towels or old linens on carpeted traffic areas to prevent more soiling.
  • Don't attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting SERVPRO.
  • Don't attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting SERVPRO.
