A Broken Water Heater Has Caused Water Damage in My Grovetown Property. What Should I Do?
Hire SERVPRO Technicians to Perform Water Mitigation in Your Home in Grovetown
Water can cause irreversible damage to your property and valuable items. It can also cause health hazards to residents if it remains in your home for a long time. Therefore, it is essential to act fast by contacting restoration professionals from SERVPRO to handle the issue and prevent secondary damage in your Grovetown property.
What is water mitigation?
It is a process where professional restorers clean, sanitize, dry, and restore an affected property to its preloss condition. The process of water mitigation in your Grovetown property is not uniform. Each property and water damage situation is unique. However, the water mitigation process includes utilizing advanced equipment and unique but approved techniques to minimize the damage.
Water damage mitigation does not involve repairing or replacing damaged property. It ensures the property owner does not face further consequences. Professional water mitigation prevents secondary damages with fast and appropriate actions. The process includes:
- Water extraction
- Cleaning and sanitizing
- Odor removal
Where do restorers begin?
Our SERVPRO team begins the water mitigation process by conducting a thorough assessment. It helps us in determining the cause of the water intrusion and the severity of the destruction. This helps us identify effective mitigation techniques to use.
How can you dry my home?
In water mitigation, time is of the essence, and the drying process is an essential step. We use state-of-the-art equipment and tools to remove water and dry homes. Porous surfaces such as carpets and furniture can take weeks to dry if the right procedures are not followed. Our restorers use portable extractors to remove standing water. We can use carpet wands to remove water from carpets. We also use air moving and dehumidifying equipment to eliminate moisture from the affected areas.
How do you remove mold?
Mold may grow in your home 24 to 48 hours after a water intrusion incident. The technique we use to remove mold depends on the severity of contamination. Some disinfectants slow or inhibit mold infestation, but the effectiveness of these products against mycotoxins and mold spores is still questioned. We can use quaternary compounds or chlorine solutions to remove molds, but we do not use them as the primary remedy. To remediate mold contamination properly, we remove the contaminated porous materials and dry the environment effectively.
Water mitigation requires special skills and experience to prevent costly secondary damage. Contact SERVPRO of Augusta at (706) 750-0200 to restore your property to its pre-water damage state. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
