Water Removal and Mitigation Solutions in Richmond County

Mitigation is a stage designed exclusively to reduce the overall losses a customer experiences. Water removal is the start of this process, as standing water presents a persistent problem for exposed structural elements and contents. Surface pooling can get addressed in multiple ways based on depth. For shallow damage, wet vacuums and attachments can manage the threat, though when the pool is deeper, we can use submersible pumps like: 

  • Trash pumps
  • Truck-mount pumps
  • Electric submersibles

Thorough Drying Practices for Water Damage to Richmond County Homes

Drying the house after a water disaster is among the chief steps in successfully restoring the property. For our experienced SERVPRO team, determining the necessary drying units and tools is determined by monitoring and discovery devices like thermal imagery and hygrometers. We can then utilize air movers and dehumidifiers, and specialty tools like positive pressure systems, to evaporate and remove moisture and water.
