The Water Damage Restoration Process
Flooding, broken pipes, or backed-up drains, or clogged sewer lines are common causes of water damage in residential or business properties. No matter what the cause, smart property owners rely on professionals to handle the cleanup process.
Assessing the Problem
The first step is to evaluate the extent of the water damage. Your SERVPRO professionals will do a damage assessment to better understand what is going to need to be done to ensure the property is safe again.
Removing Water and Debris
The next step is to ensure all water is extracted. This can often require specialized equipment and techniques to make sure all of the water is removed. Then, any damaged debris and material around the property will need to be removed as quickly as possible to prevent the buildup of mold.
Drying Out and Dehumidifying
Drying out the property is a bit more complex than it seems. The goal is to discourage the movement of any mold spores during the drying process. Professional dehumidification equipment can help with this process.
Cleaning, Repair, and Restoration
From here, the water damage cleanup continues with proper cleaning of existing surfaces and making any necessary repairs, including repairs to flooring, drywall, and ceilings. Then, rebuilding is done if needed to improve the existing space and ensure structural integrity.
