Water damage is a very common issue in homes and commercial buildings because there are many different causes of water damage. Whether you have water damage in your home or building from excessive rain or flooding, or from issues such as leaks, overflows, or burst pipes, you need to address the problem quickly. Water will immediately get absorbed by porous building materials like wood, flooring, and drywall which puts these materials at risk of stains, structural damage, and mold growth.
At ServiceMaster of Sarpy County, we provide water damage restoration services to remove water and moisture from homes and commercial buildings in Gretna, NE and dry and restore the damaged areas. We use advanced extraction and drying equipment to ensure all water is removed and will take steps to prevent mold growth.
Damage Caused by Water
The porous nature of wood, drywall, flooring, carpeting, and furniture makes excess water and moisture a damaging presence on your property. As these materials absorb the excess water, they allow the water to spread and will become weakened and rotted, impacting their structural integrity. But hesitation to address the excess water will allow the damage to become worse and increase the risk of mold growth.
Our technicians will immediately locate and fix the source of the excess water and prevent the water from spreading further. Our advanced water extraction equipment can remove any amount of water, including standing flood water, and our drying equipment will ensure that every bit of moisture is extracted from wet materials. Once the water and moisture is removed, we will clean and repair the affected areas. Mold removal services will also be provided if needed.
