"What are you guys doing?"
When it comes to water damage, especially in a home, a common question is “what are you guys going to do?” In a previous post I touched on the 6 Steps of Water Damage Restoration:
- Emergency Contact
- Inspection and Damage Assessment
- Water Removal/Water Extraction
- Drying and Dehumidification
- Cleaning and Sanitizing
In this post I want to shine light on the meat of the process so to speak, number three: water removal/water extraction. This step removes the majority of the water from your home/property which in turn reduces the drying time and also helps to prevent mold growth as well as secondary water damage. With the use of powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units, SERVPRO is able to quickly remove hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water from your property.
