Initial Water Damage Inspection in Waynesboro Homes

Job scoping is a vital effort to determine how widespread and severe water damage is for a home. This determines material conditions, safety hazards, and restoration plans. Inspecting each of the house contents can decide which items can get dried and cleaned on-site and require advanced restoration in the SERVPRO facility nearby. 

Water Mitigation Steps and Stages for Homes in Waynesboro

Because mitigation is such an essential part of the restoration process, there are multiple stages that our team undertakes with each water cleanup project. Extraction is among the first actions that must get taken when surface water concerns are a threat to the property, as absorption can allow for a rapid deterioration of porous building materials. Trapped moisture and water can also get addressed with a combination of specialty extractors and drying tools, such as: 

  • Weighted extractors
  • Carpet wands 
  • Air movers
  • Floor drying mat system
