At SERVPRO we know how important it is to you to be back in your home as quickly as possible, to eliminate the risk of more damage we need to get the water out of you home as quickly as possible, depending on the amount of space in your home that was flooded and the amount of water released into your home this process can take a few days to a week or more, our team of technicians are IICRC in water removal mitigation and works fervently to make sure the process is as painless and efficient as possible for you

Each locally owned office maintains a 24-hour response team specializing in water removal. Damage for standing water in the home starts immediately and any standing water needs to be removed as soon as possible. SERVPRO owns and keeps on hand a variety of pumps and water extractors  that are designed for residential homes and commercial buildings, each office maintains generators to support the teams and equipment because what is the point of having equipment if the power grid is knocked out from the storm and not having a way to power them.

After the standing water has been removed our technicians apply and anti-microbial solution, and utilize a series of fans and dehumidifiers based of the size of each affected room and the amount of open air in the house. This is to remove the excess moisture in the affected materials and remove the humidity to prevent any anti-microbial growth (these can range from just bad smells to mold or even the decomposition of materials). The technicians also may use specialized mat systems for wood floors, and set pads under furniture to minimize staining of the carpet and to protect the furniture.
