Water Extraction & Remediation Process

Water Damage Water Extraction & Remediation Process Residential Water Damage

Have you ever wondered what kind of work goes into remediating a flood? 

At SERVPRO of Marion/Middleboro, our WRT certified technicians are trained on how to remediate just about anything you may find yourself knee deep in. 

We utilize a set of standards like special drying equipment, and an algorithm of service that’s sure to dry out even the worst water damages. Take a look below to learn more about our water extraction process and remediation:

Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. SERVPRO of Marion/Middleboro starts this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we’ll use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. We use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. SERVPRO can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also sanitize with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
