SERVPRO's Protocols Mitigate Water Damage to a Property

If you have flooding in your apartment, house or condo, how quickly you get the water out will determine how much it can cost you. In order to get the fastest results, you need a professional restoration company.

SERVPRO has decades of experience when it comes to water removal. Returning your Groveland home to its pre-flood state begins with one of our restoration teams. We keep a team ready 24 hours a day in order to quickly arrive, determine the amount of water to be removed and get to work within an hour of your phone call, when possible. We have three primary steps to putting your home back together:

Remove Standing Water - Technicians deploy one or more pumps depending on the size and floor plan of your home. This can be done in less than a day, even in one the larger homes such as a mini-mansion or a ranch style house. If power is not available, we can deploy generators to run the pumps. If your home is in an isolated area, we also have generator trucks available for around the clock support.

Extract Trapped Water - With the visible water pumped out, technicians now go to work removing the water in your floors and carpets. To accomplish this, our SERVPRO technicians use extraction devices that are designed to draw out the water without scratching or gouging floorboards or tearing up the nape of the carpet. We utilize special drying mats to suction off water and moisture from the joints of hardwood flooring and the supporting floor joists. If there is a pad underneath the carpeting, we may need to remove the carpet or float it, that is to release the material from the tack strips to  to dry it. If the pad is too soaked to dry without damaging it, we'll recommend that you replace it.

Lower Humidity Levels - Once the water has been removed, our technicians will test the air moisture levels in your home. If they are too high, there is the possibility that mold spores will expand in this environment and begin to grow. In order to bring the levels below 12 percent, response team members will set up a series of dehumidifiers. These machines can draw up to 30 gallons of moisture from the surrounding air.

If you have water in your home, SERVPRO of Minnetonka is here to help you deal with it quickly and in a professional manner. As a locally owned franchise, we are dedicated to helping our neighbors get their lives back to normal. Call us at (952) 473-4837 today to begin the removal and restoration process.
