Every day, there are 14,000 Americans who experience water damage in their homes. At SERVPRO, we know that something like this can make for a terrible day.

That’s why we are here and ready for your call! We will take care of you and any needs regarding the restoration of your home after water damage.

Let’s talk about what a typical cleanup scenario would look like:

Emergency Contact. We understand that when an emergency happens, you need help instantly and don’t have time to spare. When you call us, we spring into action by asking questions about the nature of the accident. We then schedule an appointment for our technicians to visit your home and assess the damage in person.

Inspection and Water Damage Assessment. When we arrive, the first thing our technicians will do is ensure that water is no longer still flowing. Then we will walk around your home, assessing the damage and noting any potential hazards in the house. From there, we’ll determine the next steps.

Water Removal. The first thing we need to do is remove the standing water in your home. No matter the amount of water, we have powerful pumps and extraction units that will eliminate hundreds or thousands of gallons of water. This will help reduce the overall drying time and prevent mold growth.

Damaged Material Removal. While we attempt to restore as much as possible, some items affected by water damage will no longer be usable. Those items will be removed from the home and marked for replacement, while others may be removed to be restored.

Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Deodorization. Water seeps into furniture or sheetrock, and nasty smells can result. So, it’s important to sanitize and deodorize the home, and we have the cutting-edge equipment to do just that.

Drying. While you may no longer have standing water in your home at this stage of the process, moisture is probably still around. Having excess moisture in your home can quickly lead to mold growth. We will use advanced technologies and tools to thoroughly dry the house and restore normal moisture balance.

Monitoring. As your home dries out, we will remain in constant contact with you and make daily visits to ensure that it’s drying correctly. If needed, we will adjust equipment and monitor the entire situation to make sure you are receiving peak effectiveness.

Repairs and Construction. At the end, the last and final step is to restore your home. Whether your home needs only a minor repair or something large like a rebuild, we will get it done for you and save you money along the way.

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