What To Expect From Professional Water Damage Restoration Services In Columbia

When a Columbia homeowner first experiences a water loss, the destructive power of the scenario can be overwhelming. Homeowners often share a sense of fear and helplessness as they watch structural components deteriorate and personal possessions face ruin. A seasoned and well-qualified water remediation company can halt the harm and return a property threatened with permanent destruction to preloss condition -- “Like it never even happened.”

Water damage to your Columbia home must be addressed as soon as possible. Relying on professional remediation services ensures management of the crisis with deliberate speed, fast but efficient steps taken to remove the water and dry out building materials and personal belongings. Our team also works directly with your insurance company, providing necessary documentation and limiting your out of pocket expenses.

The SERVPRO crew sent to your house travels with all the essential water remediation equipment in our familiar green service trucks. Our crew chief assesses your needs, and then our technicians get right to work without further delay. For standing water deeper than 2 inches we use submersible pumps, switching to wanded water extractors as the depth decreases. For safety reasons, electricity is often temporarily shut off during a water emergency. Our removal tools can be powered by alternative means, gas motors or truck-mounted generators filling in for the power grid.

We monitor building materials for moisture levels and use thermal scanning devices to find hidden caches of water. SERVPRO has high expectations for each of our production employees, supporting their training through IICRC courses in all aspects of water detection, removal, and applied structural drying. Our crews master strategies to release and extract trapped moisture, crucial because water that lingers can encourage mold growth within 24 to 48 hours.

Water removal is phase one of a water damage remediation project. Appropriate drying of affected spaces must follow, or the moisture continues to damage both structures and belongings. SERVPRO service vehicles stock the air movers and heaters needed to force moisture trapped inside porous materials into the air as vapor. We then position dehumidifiers to condense or absorb the water vapor so it can be removed permanently from your living spaces.

EPA registered antimicrobials can be a final treatment for the SERVPRO crew. The disinfectant agents inhibit any growth of molds or mildews. Application of these products adds a layer of protection, although we also work with you to arrange for repair or replacement of the source of water invasion. Proper maintenance of appliances, plumbing, gutter systems, roofs, and more minimizes the risk of future water damage.
