When rainstorms or other water-related incidents lead to damage in your home or property, SERVPRO® can be contacted to assess the extent of the damage and provide restoration services. They typically follow a process that involves:

  1. Assessment: SERVPRO® technicians will assess the extent of the damage caused by the rainstorm. This involves evaluating the affected areas, determining the severity of the damage, and identifying potential safety hazards.

  2. Water Removal: If there's standing water in your property, SERVPRO® will use specialized equipment to remove the water as quickly as possible. This prevents further damage and helps mitigate the risk of mold growth.

  3. Drying and Dehumidification: After water removal, SERVPRO® will use industrial-grade equipment to thoroughly dry the affected areas. Dehumidifiers and air movers are commonly used to accelerate the drying process.

  4. Cleaning and Disinfecting: Water damage can lead to the growth of mold and bacteria. SERVPRO® will clean and disinfect the affected areas to ensure a safe and healthy environment.

  5. Restoration: Depending on the severity of the damage, SERVPRO® may need to repair or replace materials that were affected, such as ceilings, walls, and flooring. Their goal is to restore your property to its pre-damage condition.

  6. Monitoring: Even after the restoration process, SERVPRO® may continue to monitor the affected areas to ensure that no hidden issues, such as mold growth, arise later on.

If you find yourself dealing with damage caused by rainstorms or other water-related incidents, contacting a professional restoration company like SERVPRO® can help you address the situation effectively and minimize the potential long-term consequences of water damage. Keep in mind that specific procedures may vary based on the severity of the damage and the company's specific practices.
