There is No Need to Panic after Experiencing Water Damage in Alexandria
SERVPRO Uses Professional Grade Equipment When Restoring Your Home after Water Damage
Without experience in water damage restoration, it is hard to determine what you need to replace and what is salvageable after the unfortunate incident takes place. You also need an expert to control the damage and perform removal and cleanup activities on your Alexandria, Pineville or Ball property. It is equally important to understand some of the procedures that professionals perform when restoring your property.
One of the first steps that our SERVPRO technicians carry out when mitigating water damage on your Alexandria property is identifying the extent of the damage. When determining the level of wetness and tracking the moisture levels, the team uses specialized tools such as moisture sensors, thermo-hygrometers, and moisture meters. Once we find the wet areas, the next step is to dry them to their preloss condition.
It means water removal is a crucial procedure towards making the restoration a success. Our IICRC certified technicians may use extractors to remove the water. In most cases, we use pumps when there is standing water in the area. Portable extractors are useful when removing water from areas with limited access; otherwise, we employ the truck mounted ones when the site is so big. Apart from water removal, these devices can clean carpets and upholstery.
Whether we are performing deodorization to neutralize the smells or using dehumidifiers to increase the rate of evaporation, observing safety measures is so important. As a result, our SERVPRO of Alexandria team puts on the necessary safety gear and advise our clients to stay away from the site to avoid any probable injury. We also work towards preventing possible hazards by addressing any sagging wet ceilings and turning off electrical circuits that are likely to short circuit.
