Image of the surroundings of a house flooded. Don't let water damage ruin your home, call SERVPRO of Bath for your entire remediation process.

Water damage can come from many different sources, with varying intensities, danger levels, and reach of damage. Ultimately, many different objects, surfaces, and materials in a home can suffer water damage from the same event, and many homeowners question how a company such as SERVPRO of Bath handles a comprehensive water damage cleanup job. In this blog post, you'll learn about some of the techniques our technicians use to control and repair water damage in local residences.

The Water Damage Remediation Process

Identifying the Source and Water Type

Before any restoration, the water damage must be correctly defined by water type and we must find the source. Did it come from a storm, flood, or even a pipe burst? There are several different types of water which will affect the safety and cleanup protocols we use. The water categories are either clean, gray, or black. If necessary, our team of specialists will work to stop the water flow as efficiently as possible, to avert further damage to your home.

Surveying Damage and Mold

After we understand what type of damage we’re dealing with, our technicians will search the home to find any objects that have been affected and what needs to be done. We do this two different ways, visually and with moisture detection equipment. Additionally, we look for signs of mold growth, which often takes priority in a cleanup operation.

Furniture and Water Removal

The next step is to remove all furniture from affected areas, and then pump out any additional water. We use industrial-grade machinery to pump water from the interior to the exterior of the home, with either a portable or a truck-mounted pump.

Drying and Odor Treatments

At this point in the remediation process, we bring out additional heavy-duty machinery to begin drying and deodorizing the affected area(s).  We do this to make sure no more damage or mold growth occurs, and to remove any bad odors.  

Carpet Removal and Final Cleaning

In many cases, some or all of the carpeting in a room will need replacing. We make sure to evaluate carpeting carefully for moisture so we do not incur extra expenses. Sometimes, a cleaning may only be necessary, particularly when water damage is contained early on. After that is completed, we clean up and sanitize all of the walls and objects, and bring back any furniture that had to be taken out during this process.
