Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Kitchen Flood in Northwest Yonkers

What Happened?

When a roof leak developed in this Yonkers, NY resident’s kitchen, they were at a loss how to proceed. Having penetrated the roof, water was able to pool up on the drywall above the ceiling, eventually causing it to cave and fall into the kitchen below, causing a massive mess. Knowing the cleanup effort would need qualified professionals to get the job done right, the homeowner decided to contact SERVPRO of Yonkers North for a turnkey disaster mitigation effort.

Kitchen Flood in Northwest Yonkers

After any disaster, time is of the essence. Dispatching a crew immediately after receiving the call, we were able to prevent any further damage from the leaving roof. After soaking up any initial water present in the kitchen and removing the damp drywall, our team was able to use moisture sensors to pinpoint any additional water present in the drywall and flooring before continuing with the rest of the repairs.

What Did We Do?

Once the collapsed drywall was completely cleared, our trained professionals began carefully removing the cabinetry above the sink, which had been completely flooded with water from the roof. Stripping away the contaminated drywall, our team was able to re-install new drywall, and then the cabinets. Bringing in dehumidifiers and fan-powered drying units, the airflow inside the room was increased to dry out any remaining moisture over the next several days. After stripping away and replacing the rest of the drywall, the final restoration was complete, with the kitchen returning to its prior state.
