Professional Residential Water Cleanup And Restoration For Grovetown Homeowners

8/9/2019 (Permalink)

We know how important the structure of your home is after water damage, but we also know how important your Grovetown belongings and furniture are.

SERVPRO can be there every step of the way for your water damage in Grovetown.

While a strong, Summer storm can result in a large amount of rain falling on our community, most Grovetown residents have to deal with water intrusions from far more mundane sources like a cracked inlet pipe or a split hose leading into a clothes washer.

When the intrusion source is from inside the home like these examples, Grovetown water cleanup is a little less complicated. Here, there are no contaminants such as from an outside flood, so SERVPRO specialists do not have to spend time and effort on eliminating a potential health risk before starting to remove water in the home.

After team members use pumps and other water extraction devices, cleanup begins. Since water renders paper into a soggy mess in less than an hour, they dispose of all papers, magazines, and even photographs that were affected by the water. If the owner wants a particular photo or document preserved, team members can keep it out of the trash, but restoring it requires a specialist trained with that skill.

Wood can be almost as vulnerable as paper. A maple or cherry wood dining set is pretty sturdy, but if left in water overnight or longer, the varnish or other finishes on the feet and legs begin to soften and dissolve. That leaves the exposed wood vulnerable to splitting and cracking. To prevent or at least ameliorate the effects, SERVPRO specialists carefully draw water out of the affected table and chairs using a dehumidifier.

Once the wood is back to its original condition, specialists carefully remove the finish. They can sand down cracked or split areas and use a filler to smooth the appearance and then cover everything with new varnish or another veneer. If the piece is old enough to be an antique, the homeowner’s insurance company may prefer using a professional restorer, so the team leader checks on that possibility before performing any work.

At SERVPRO of Augusta, we are proud to serve not only our local community but also that of Martinez and the surrounding areas. For a quick response to all of your water and other restoration needs, call us today at (706) 750-0200, 24/7. We are here for you.
