Water Damage Restoration Process
SERVPRO of Greater Covington and Mandeville specializes in water damage restoration for both residential and commercial properties.
Steps of the Water Damage Restoration Process:
1- Identify Source
We will check for the source of water. The source must be stopped before any drying or restoration work can begin.
2- Identify Type of Water
We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure we restore the property based on industry guidelines.
3- Survey Extent of Damage
We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.
4- Move Furniture and Contents
We move furniture and contents to prevent further damage to flooring and contents.
5- Dispose of Unsalvageable Items
With guidance from property owner and adjuster, we will help determine which items can or can not be restored.
6- Extract Water
We extract excess water from affected areas.
7- Deodorize and Disinfect
Our process may require deodorizers as odor treatments or EPA-registered disinfectants as antimicrobial treatments.
8- Utilize Drying Equipment
We utilize our drying equipment to remove moisture and bring the relative humidity back to normal.
9- Monitor Drying Process Until Complete
Once drying equipment is in place, we will periodically check the moisture level readings until the affected areas are completely dry.
