If your property is flooded during a violent storm or a torrential rain, you will certainly take immediate measures to remove the water, salvage your belongings and properly clean and dehumidify the premises. You are recommended to seek professional assistance as the experts will have the necessary equipment and the required know-how to mitigate the water damage as quickly and efficiently as possible.
However, when leaking pipes or fixtures, clogged drains, malfunctioning appliances, or broken sump pumps result in excessive moisture in your home or commercial building, you may not be quick off the mark in fixing the problem as it may not seem very urgent or troublesome. Unless you take adequate measures though, the porous materials in your home will absorb the excess water and will start to grow bacteria and mold spores. Within several days, the structural damage may become extensive, mold may affect large areas of your property, and even health problems may occur as a result. It is very important to act quickly at the first sign of water damage in your property in order to preserve the good condition of your surroundings and to keep your living environment safe and healthy. Without a doubt, your most beneficial option in such circumstances is to call the professionals and let them take care of the problem.
The experienced technicians of ServiceMaster First Response will find the cause of the moisture and fix it, extract any excess water, and thoroughly dry out the premises. Then they will repair any sustained structural damage, clean your household items and materials, and deodorize your home to restore the excellent condition of your surroundings. Our first-class water damage restoration services are available in several areas in Nevada and California, including South Lake Tahoe, CA and the neighboring communities.
Water Damage Restoration Process
The actual water damage restoration process cannot begin until the source of the excessive moisture has been identified and taken care of. Once the source of the problem is fixed (or the rain has stopped in the event of flooding), our experienced technicians first extract the excess water and get rid of the moisture with the help of quality dehumidifiers, powerful air movers, and other specialty drying equipment. When all the materials and items in your home are completely dry, we start repairing and sanitizing structural elements such as concrete surfaces, drywall, structural framing, flooring, etc. and restoring the furnishing, including furniture, carpets, and upholstery (if any of your personal items have been badly damaged and require more thorough cleaning and special dehumidification techniques, they will be packed out and transported to our specialized facilities for complete recovery). If mold has already appeared, adequate measures are taken to get rid of it, mitigate the damage, and remove the odor from furnishings, fabrics, etc. Deodorization continues until no musty smell remains in your home.
