Water Damage Remediation for Forest Hills Properties

Mitigation of water damage situations combines multiple actions simultaneously. Considering the pace that standing water can spread through the property, problems like ceiling leaks or flood damage can overwhelm residences without immediate steps and mitigative strategies. Our experienced team can help with:

  • ceiling leaks 
  • flood restoration
  • water cleanup
  • basement flooding
  • water removal services
  • water damage remediation  

Thorough Drying During Forest Hills Water Cleanup 

A universal need for homes and businesses after water damage incidents is thorough and efficient drying. Evaporative efforts combine base units like axial and centrifugal air movers with desiccant and low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers for moisture removal. Regulating airflow, temperature, and humidity can maximize drying efficiency. 

Protecting Stored Belongings in Forest Hills Homes After Basement Flooding

Content management and cleaning can be a vital service provided by our SERVPRO team after basement flooding occurs. With many residences being split level beneath the street grade, low-rise properties can also be threatened by rapidly changing flood conditions.

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

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. 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.

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

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

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

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
