Flooded laundry room Don't let excess water ruin your day. Call SERVPRO, we will take care of it for you!

When Our Technicians Arrive, They Immediately Take Action Using SERVPRO’s Methods for Properly Handling Water Events on Your Augusta Property

Everyone has a cleaning scenario that sticks out in their mind as the worst, but a water loss in Augusta is an entirely different level of chaos. Although a minor spill can be managed with a bucket and mop or consumer-grade shop vac, many home water emergencies involve hundreds if not thousands of gallons of water if a burst pipe or broken appliance operates for even a few minutes before someone shuts the water off.  

Despair Turns to Hope

When Standing ankle-deep in your utility room after the water heater ruptures, give new meaning to the need for water removal in Augusta. Most homeowners do not know what to do next, why we exist as a resource for our community. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained employees learn about the science of water extraction and structural drying, using proven, research-based techniques to dry your home promptly and thoroughly.

Many Hands and Tools

Speed is of the essence when managing water losses, why SERVPRO adjusts the number of technicians and the inventory of equipment used at each site. Water removal projects share similarities, but we assess every scenario individually, accounting for differences in layout, building materials, and the source of the damaging water. Once we put a plan in place, our crews extract the liquid water rapidly, far faster than a DIY effort. Several crew members managing appropriate equipment facilitate the tasks in a matter of hours rather than days or longer.

Detecting, Measuring, and Monitoring

Throughout the water removal project, water can migrate to building cavities and into structural components. The spread of moisture to “invisible” spaces is why SERVPRO uses sensitive detection and measuring devices. It takes training and time to learn how to use these tools properly. We try to have the same technician sample using the tools throughout the project so that data is consistent. We use the initial readings to set drying goals and then monitor to make sure we achieve but do not overshoot the mark. 

Experience using cutting edge equipment is why SERVPRO of Augusta exceeds industry standards and customer expectations. We answer when you call (706) 750-0200 twenty-four-hours a day every day of the year.
