What to Expect When You’re Expecting Water Damage Restoration | SERVPRO® of North Fort Worth
It’s happening right now in some unfortunate home, and it happens to 14,000 more people every day. Water damage, it seems, gets to us all at one point in some form.
You already know that you should call the experts at SERVPRO when you have a water damage issue. What you may not know is how you can expect that process to go.
A little enlightenment for you, if we may:
Emergency Contact. First, you have to contact us. When you do, we’ll walk you through a few questions and start scripting a plan for your issue. Then we’ll set an appointment time to meet up in person shortly thereafter.
Inspection and Water Damage Assessment. Once SERVPRO experts arrive at your home, they’ll take a thorough look around and make a final appraisal of the damage, making sure to note any areas that may be hazardous for you. They’ll also determine the state of a few things—noting whether they can be restored and cleaned, or if they’ll need to be reconstructed or replaced.
Water Removal. These pump trucks aren’t here merely to look pretty. We’ll cut them loose and let the pumps drink their fill until your home is rid of all that unwanted output.
Damaged Material Removal. As determined earlier, some items will need replacement, and thus will need be removed. We’ll haul them away to get them off site and speed up the drying process for the remaining items.
Cleaning, Sanitizing and Deodorization. Smells, stains and even toxins can fill your home after water invades. We’ll use our proprietary cleaning solutions and techniques to ensure that your home is both safe and clean.
Drying. Even after the pumps are done, there’s still going to be excess moisture in your home, which could allow mold to grow on various affected surfaces, including furniture and clothing. We’ll use specialized gear to get rid of that offensive moisture and prevent the growth of the toxic black stuff.
Monitoring. We’ll always have an eye toward progress and efficiency, and we’ll regularly be checking in to make sure things are going as they should.
Repairs and Construction. Finally, your pros will get to work restoring damaged items and rebuilding, repairing and reconstructing whatever is necessary to fully get your home back into shape. By the time we’re done, you’ll wonder if we were ever there in the first place.
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."
