What to Do Before We Arrive for Water Extraction in Augusta
Small steps you can take before we arrive
As a homeowner, there are some steps you can take to reduce the amount of water loss that you suffer in your home before our team from SERVPRO arrives. For example, turning off the water supply to your home when there is damage stemming from a burst pipe or a busted supply line is an excellent place to start.
Other things that you can do before we arrive to assist with water extraction in Augusta is to pick up small items from the floors to save them. This includes items like rugs, smaller accent tables, benches, and decorative elements to keep them from becoming saturated with moisture. It is also best to be mindful of anything that may not be colorfast where ink could transfer onto other materials, including magazines, books, and newspapers.
No matter what steps you take before SERVPRO arrives, safety is paramount. If electronics may have suffered water damage, never try to test them. You can speak with the team coordinator at SERVPRO regarding any potential safety concerns regarding electronics and more.
Once SERVPRO arrives on the scene, our extensive training and experience shine as we assess the level of water damage and quickly formulate a plan for water extraction. We must act swiftly and carefully to mitigate the damage and work to save you the costs involved in a significant water loss. We use specialized equipment such as pumps, vacuums, and air movers to ensure that all of the moisture is removed from the home so that the rebuilding process can begin.
Because of materials such as sheetrock wicks water so quickly, SERVPRO removes any damaged areas and replaces it with all-new sheetrock. We provide homeowners with a smooth transition into any necessary repairs so that you can get your home back into its preloss condition as soon as possible.
