Our Water Restoration Method in 6 Steps | SERVPRO® of Northeast Greenville County
While the moment you discover water damage may prompt many feelings, we recommend swift action to get the restoration process set in motion.
Because of all the complications that can arise from water damage left untreated, we are here 24⁄7 to begin our six-step water damage restoration method.
6 Steps to Water Damage Restoration
1. Initial Emergency Contact
Water damage will never occur on a set schedule, so you can call us to start the process 24⁄7. Over the phone, we will ask you questions about the nature of the damage to draft a response plan and send you adequate numbers of technicians and equipment to tackle your damage.
2. Inspection and Damage Assessment
Upon arrival, we will first make sure the scene is safe and prevent any more water from leaking into the impacted area if we are able to. Afterward, we will do a thorough inspection of the area to determine the best course of action for restoration and let you know our findings.
3. Moisture Extraction
Quickly moving to the extraction stage is the best way to prevent further damages from occurring, as standing water can seep into everything around it. We have high-grade vacuums and water pumps to do this rapidly with hundreds of gallons at a time.
4. Dehumidifying and Drying
Once any standing water is removed, we can move on to the smaller-scale moisture removal. We have dehumidifiers and high-grade dryers to pull moisture out of the air and out of porous surfaces such as wood or fabrics. This discourages mold from growing and causing more damages in the water’s wake.
5. Cleaning Belongings
Any item that has been affected by water damages is prone to becoming a contamination hazard, which is why we take sanitization seriously. We will thoroughly remove microbes and odors to prevent any hazards or musty, water-damaged smells from popping up.
6. Restoration and Repair
We will never leave you with a partially completed restoration job when you count on us, which is why we handle the cosmetic and construction details as well. We can repair structural damage, apply paint and put on other finishing touches so it will be like the damage never happened.
If your home has been water-damaged, you can count on us to help. Call us 24⁄7 to get the process started.
