How Water Cleanup Works In Your Home
Water damage is a distressing situation, and your response time is crucial. When water leaks, it can carry bacteria, sewage, and grime into your home, staining furniture, carpets, walls, and floors. The quicker we respond to the situation, the less likely that permanent damage will occur. SERVPRO of Upper Darby has a crew of highly trained technicians who can be onsite within four hours. Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same.
Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
When a qualified water technician arrives on site, they can assess any immediate danger and mitigate the loss. This includes finding the water source, cordoning off areas of danger, and removing furniture and possessions.
A SERVPRO of Upper Darby professional can provide you with a detailed, step-by-step explanation of the process as well as the likely outcome of each step. If you know of any preexisting conditions or materials that could be a problem, like asbestos, you need to let our team know.
Water Removal & Drying / Dehumidification
We then begin extracting water. SERVPRO of Upper Darby uses powerful submersible gas pumps to extract pooling water. In less extreme cases, we can use industrial wet/dry vacuums to bring moisture out of carpeted floors. How long the initial drying process takes depends on the size of the affected area and the extent of damage, which is measured using moisture meters.
Cleaning, Sanitizing & Restoration
After the initial phase is completed, we can begin the restoration process. Carpets can be removed to clean and dry both sides, reducing the possibility of mold growth after the event. Items can be treated with sanitizer, dried, deodorized, and returned to their original place. SERVPRO of Upper Darby always looks to mitigate loss, but in some cases, some items may be beyond repair.
