Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Washington, GA

As an area rife with history, the protection of Washington properties often falls to competent and well-trained restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team. With water loss disasters being among the most common call-outs that we face, our preparedness for these emergencies ensures that customers get the appropriate mitigation solutions for their homes as soon as possible. This might include extraction and water removal or repairs necessary to plumbing fixtures and thorough drying practices. We are ready 24/7 to help. 

Removing Surface Water Fast in Washington Homes 

Standing water presents a unique threat for Washington homes, specifically because many materials used in aging residences throughout the area are porous and easily damaged. Even hardwoods that often now reside under newer carpeted floors remain sensitive to absorption and subsequent damage if extraction does not happen quickly enough. We have multiple tools ideal for water removal, including: 

  • Wet vacuums 
  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Self-priming trash pumps 
  • Carpet wands 
  • Weighted extractors 

Thorough Drying Steps for Washington Area Homes 

There is no mistaking the damage resulting from water penetrating beyond the surface of materials like drywall or flooring. The steps taken to promote evaporative drying often employ multiple tools and devices simultaneously. Our SERVPRO team can appreciate how mismanaged moisture can result in microbial threats, so consistent monitoring is vital to ensure that the placement and production of drying tools meet the overseeing technicians' expectations.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet or may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
