What To Expect From Professional Flood Damage Restoration Services In Augusta

When your Augusta home experiences flooding, it is a traumatic time for you and your family. The damage increases with every hour the water remains, but managing the problem is beyond the tools and skills possessed by the average homeowner. Our company considers the water removal and structural drying services necessary after a flooding event to be one of the pillars of our mission. Let us help at this difficult time.

Flood damage in Augusta can connect to a severe weather event, a municipal utility breach, or household plumbing or appliance malfunctions. Regardless of how the flooding happened, it must be removed, contained, and discarded fast to stop progressive damage to the structure and contents, and also prevent secondary issues such as mold growth. We have the trained technicians to implement any professional plan to get the food remediation project up and running to completion.

SERVPRO often recommends a contents pack-out in a flooding scenario. Our team uses a detailed Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) to inventory and track your items, including meticulous lists, digital photos, and barcoding. Removing furnishings and personal property permits us to evaluate their condition and effectuate cleaning and drying procedures at our production facility. We also document restoration expense and decisions to discard items to help with the insurance claims process.

A pack-out allows SERVPRO technicians at your home to attend to rapid water removal and structural drying with more ease and space. Our service vehicles are stocked with pumps and water extractors, essential to rid the flooded spaces of standing water. We use thermal scanning devices and moisture meters to find hidden water and establish baselines for drying goals. Technicians operate the machinery after an evaluation of the water category, containing contaminated fluid for appropriate disposal according to local regulation.

Once the majority of the water is evacuated SERVPRO establishes a perimeter of air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to dry out the flood-damaged space. If needed to gain access to saturated cavities we might elect to make flood cuts, ensuring a flow of dry, heated air to draw out the moisture in every area affected. The water in the structural components becomes water vapor in the drier air, ready for capture by evaporative or desiccant dehumidifiers.

SERVPRO of Augusta stands beside you after a flood, ready to return your home to preloss condition. Call (706) 868-5441 for a fast assessment and professional flood remediation.
