Hire a Company that Offers Water Extraction and Drying Services in Augusta

Many complex systems feed into your house, and they keep everything running smoothly. An example is the water supply lines. Without water, you cannot cook, wash dishes, or take a shower, among other things. Unfortunately, a big spill or burst pipe can cause severe water damage in your house.

How can SERVPRO help?

To solve the issue, you need to contact a company that provides water cleanup services in Augusta. To guarantee the results you want to see, our team uses the most advanced restoration equipment to extract the water. To remove the water, we can use wet/dry vacuums and pumps. Water extraction helps speed up the drying process. We extract as much water as possible from affected surfaces.

Why it is crucial to act quickly

You should not wait when you notice water in your home. The most significant problem with water damage is not the standing water itself, but the moisture, which is conducive to mold infestation. It maybe necessary to remove and replace drywall and insulation. It is also essential to inspect your home’s frame for damage. Brick homes are less susceptible to water damage compared to wood houses, but rising waters can still ruin them. Our SERVPRO team can remove damaged materials properly to prevent mold development.

Do I need to use pack-out services?

Depending on the severity of the water intrusion, several inches of water might have pooled on the floor. Your possessions could get damaged. Apart from offering water removal and drying services, we also provide pack-out services to ensure that the possessions of a customer are secure and safe. Our certified technicians can determine what is salvageable and what needs to be thrown away. We can take the salvageable items to our facilities for thorough cleaning and restoration.

How can I know that my house is dry?

If there is a lot of moisture in the air, materials take longer to dry. After removing the water, we dry a home using air moving and dehumidifying equipment. We also use different moisture detection tools to check the moisture in building materials and contents of a house. They include:

    •    Moisture meters
    •    Thermo-hygrometers
    •    Moisture sensors
    •    Thermal imaging cameras

After using these devices to check for moisture, we can adjust the drying equipment if it is necessary to ensure your home is dry.
