Our Experts At SERVPRO Explain Our Water Damage Restoration Process For Your Spokane Home
Step By Step Water Damage Restoration In Spokane
Water serves as a convenience and comfort in your Spokane home assuming sound plumbing and well-working and maintained appliances. The friendly relationship you have with water can change in an instant when a pipe cracks or your hard-working dishwasher, water heater, or washing machine experiences a pump breakdown, rusted bottom, or a supply line breach. Our highly-qualified work crews are familiar with all aspects of professional water damage mitigation regardless of the water source.
Step one in any water damage remediation in Spokane is a speedy response. Water soaking into structural components, spreading across and into fixtures like carpeting and cabinets, and saturating containers of personal possessions immediately begins a severe destructive process. The faster expert water mitigators attend to the problem the more likely that structural damage halts and the water-logged personal possessions stand a good chance of restoration to function and appearance.
The SERVPRO team strives to arrive within a few hours of the water event, and the crew chief completes the second step -- a thorough assessment and restoration plan. Moisture measurements and scanning for trapped water caches are step three, defining the work area and establishing baselines for eventual drying goals.
Step four is water removal, and our familiar green SERVPRO vehicles have all the equipment necessary to pump and extract water. If the electricity is shut down for safety, our trucks carry power generators, so no delay is necessary for our employees to start the water exiting your dwelling. Our crew members bring their IICRC training to every job, using effective strategies to get the water out even in hard to reach areas between walls and in cavities.
Once the water evacuates, step five, structural drying, commences. Our team masters the principles of psychrometry, or the science of drying, during mandated training. SERVPRO vehicles again boast all the equipment needed -- air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers. Getting the balance of air movement, heat, and lowered humidity right is indeed a science, causing the liquid moisture to vaporize and then condense or absorb within evaporative or desiccant dehumidifiers for disposal.
Cleaning and sanitization is step six, ensuring that any lingering moisture does not fuel a mold outbreak and that debris dislodged during the flooding and water removal is cleared. If odors are a problem, SERVPRO deodorant specialists use a variety of methods to eliminate the smell, leaving your home fresh.
Finally, step seven encompasses the tasks needed to restore structures and possessions to “Like it never even happened.” Repair and sometimes rebuilding might be required, services provided by SERVPRO or affiliated contractors.
