ServiceMASTER is There to Clean Up After Water Damage

ServiceMASTER has years of experience in returning homes and businesses back to normal after a disaster or emergency situation. We strive to help families and business owners make the best choices for water damage restoration services.

Water Damage Restoration Process

Identifying the scope of the damage involves a thorough examination. This uses specialized moisture-detection meters, probes and sensors to determine the extent of the damage, which enables us to form the most effective plan for returning your property to normal as quickly as possible. Our inspection then includes identifying possible hoses or other parts that may have been the cause, tagging these for the insurance company providing photo documentation.

INSPECT ATTIC

Wet insulation, framing and stored contents may need to be treated or protected.

INSPECT BASEMENT

Basements need to be inspected to plan proper drying procedures for possible water seepage.

INSPECT DUCTWORK

Ductwork will be inspected for water intrusion throughout affected areas, including floor vents.

INSPECT CRAWL SPACE

Water may seep into crawl spaces, and if left unattended, may cause further damage. Wet insulation and framing may also need to be treated.

PROTECT YOUR CONTENTS

We not only protect items from further damage, but we create a more efficient environment for faster, more complete drying. Protecting your content may include moving items into another room, setting items up on block or moving them off-site.

PERFORM WATER EXTRACTION

Removing excess water minimizes damage and accelerates the drying time. Proper equipment is needed to address all flooring layers, and extraction of each lay may occur at different times.

UNDERSTANDING THE DRYING PROCESS

ServiceMASTER is a highly reputable, licensed, insured and endorsed water damage restoration service provider. Our experienced and qualified technicians have completed advanced training in water mitigation, dehumidification systems, mold remediation and corrosion control. They also continue their education to learn about the latest techniques and equipment to better serve you in your time of need. It is our goal to restore your property as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The drying and restoration may require up to three phases before completion:

PHASE 1: EMERGENCY SERVICES

When ServiceMASTER arrives, a statement of authorization will need to be signed before work can begin. Our trained technicians will begin by determining if your carpet is salvageable and if the carpet can be dried in place. The next step is to extract as much water as possible. Then high-velocity air movers and dehumidifiers will be set up to dry the carpet and subfloor quickly. Our team also treats the carpet with a solution to prevent microbial growth. If the pad or carpet cannot be dried in place, it will be removed to expedite the drying process. If the pad cannot be saved it will be matched by our office and ordered for the reinstallation. When the carpet is deemed unsalvageable, the technician may advise removing both the pad and the carpet.


For businesses we will need access to the property throughout the drying process in order to properly monitor the temperature, humidity and our equipment. Please work with our office to your prefered method so we can correctly monitor the drying process.

PHASE 2: REINSTALLATION & CLEANING

When the reinstallation is completed the carpet is cleaned and deodorized. We also clean any upholstery or other damaged furnishing will be cleaned.

PHASE 3: STRUCTURAL REPAIRS

When the drying process is successfully completed, structural damage is assessed and the repair phase can begin. This is when the drywall, ceilings and floors will be repaired. It may be appropriate to complete structural repairs before reinstallation and cleaning.
