Your Custom Water Damage Recovery Plan | SERVPRO® of Northwest Bergen
For the math majors out there: If 14,000 Americans fall victim to a water damage disaster each day, how many folks are undergoing that aquatic stressor each hour? How about each minute?
Answer: too many.
The day may never come when you become part of that unfortunate statistic, and we hope it never does. But should the need arise for sudden help to rid your home or business of rushing water, here’s what the process will look like when you reach out to SERVPRO.
Emergency Contact. Right away when you click or call, we’ll want to know a few things to guide us to a proper understanding of your scenario. This will lead to an appointment, so we can nail down a time soon thereafter to arrive on site with tools and technicians.
Inspection and Water Damage Assessment. We’ll survey the situation, building a customized plan for water removal and cleanup. We’ll also make sure you’re aware of any lurking hazards, and we’ll go over items from your home that may need to be replaced.
Water Removal. Big, powerful pumps come in next, to clear out the myriad gallons of water that have invaded your space. We’ll employ industry-leading techniques and tools to enact a complete removal of the offending substances.
Damaged Material Removal. Once the bulk of the water has been cleared, we can safely move on to the haul-away of items that have undergone too much damage to be restored.
Cleaning, Sanitizing and Deodorization. Almost all water issues leave behind some stains and cleaning needs, and sewage backups and floods introduce toxins and other sanitation needs to your home environment. We’ll make sure all this gets cleared up.
Drying. The absence of water doesn’t necessarily signify the absence of moisture. Mold can grow quickly if excess moisture remains after water damage, so we’ll use specialized vacuums to dry out both the atmosphere and affected surfaces of your home to make sure mold has nowhere to reside.
Monitoring. We’ll keep an eye—both, actually—on the entire process, from arrival to finish, to ensure things are running smoothly and all techniques are being employed effectively. If any needed changes emerge, we’ll make them happen.
Repairs and Construction. Everything is dry; now we can rebuild. Our first love is restoration, so we’re glad to be able to perform repairs and reconstruction where necessary. It streamlines things for you and your insurance company as well!
When water damage strikes, make the call to SERVPRO for A-to-Z cleanup and restoration. We’ll make your damaged property look “Like It Never Even Happened.”
