House Being Carried Away by a Storm House Being Carried Away by a Storm

Water damage happens to a home somewhere across the United States an average of 14,000 times a day. It happens multiple times a minute, whether from flooding, pipes breaking or some other cause.

If your home has a basement, your odds of needing water remediation someday are extremely high, and of course, hoses and water heaters are known to cause trouble. Should you need your local SERVPRO team, here’s how things will go.

Emergency Contact. Once you reach out by phone or web, we’ll get started with a few questions to help us determine the nature and scope of the issue. Then we’ll settle on a time when we can check things out in person.

Inspection and Water Damage Assessment. Once we’re on site, we’ll be able to more accurately survey the situation and finalize a plan. We’ll warn you of any hazards your water damage has created, and review any items or areas with you that we estimate will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

Water Removal. Put away the bucket—we’ve got big, strong pumps to clear out all that water. Hundreds and hundreds of gallons may be removed by the time we’re finished, and of course, we won’t stop until it’s all gone.

Damaged Material Removal. Now those damaged items can be safely hauled away, and we’ll take care of it for you quickly, in order to expedite the process of drying the restorable materials that remain.

Cleaning, Sanitizing and Deodorization. All that water rudely rushed in and made a mess of your basement, bathroom or other areas, and we’ll be hard at work making sure the stains, smells and contaminants it left behind are only temporary nuisances.

Drying. Now that the area is clear, we’ve got mold to prevent. The moisture left behind by the intrusive water spill will allow mold growth in only a couple of days, but we’ll finely go through all surfaces with specialized equipment to extract the moisture mold needs to grow and restore the humidity balance in your home.

Monitoring. These processes are highly efficient, but they don’t run on auto-pilot, so we’ll be on site and in contact constantly to ensure a smooth, thorough recovery.

Repairs and Construction. Once the drying process is done, we’ll turn into a team of handymen, expertly restoring and recrafting damaged materials in your home, from small to great.

When water damage strikes, make the call to SERVPRO for A-to-Z cleanup and restoration. We’ll make your damaged property look “Like it never even happened.”
