Water Remediation - Cumberland, RI
Water disaster's never happen when it’s convenient. From flooding to a busted pipe, water damage can happen to anyone. Turn a disaster into nothing but a bad memory by acting quickly!
Professional water damage remediation is the best solution to prevent future problems and make any disaster, "Like it never even happened."
Your First Steps After Flooding
Start by assessing the situation. Is your home safe to stay in? Is it safe to try and remove anything on your own? If your electricity is still on; water around outlets and electric cables could prevent serious hazards. If you don’t feel safe, don’t try to move anything out of the damaged area on your own.
What To Do While You Wait
While you’re waiting for our crew to arrive, there are several things you can do, such as:
- Wipe water away from loose items and wood furniture
- Mop away excess water
- Gather any loose objects, including lamps and pictures on the wall
- Turn your air conditioning on to aid in the drying process
- Prop up wet cushions
- Take up rugs from the floor and hang to dry
All of this speeds up the drying process and prevents any loose objects from being damaged during the restoration process.
SERVPRO’s Water Restoration Process
Our six step process begins when you contact us. We’ll ask questions to initially assess the situation. We’ll then send out a team to test and inspect the area to determine the full extent of the damage.
During the third step, we remove water from the area using powerful vacuums to prevent mold growth. The next step involves fully drying the area and removing water in areas that aren’t as obvious, such as in your walls. During out last two steps, we thoroughly clean and sanitize the area and restore any damaged walls, carpet, floor and more.
The longer you wait to start the cleanup, the more likely it is for mold to grow. Don’t try to clean up after a major flood on your own. Let our professional team and equipment handle all the work for you.
