Do Not Get Stressed About Water Damage in Your Augusta Residence, Seek Professional Help

Water damage includes any kind of loss or destruction that excessive water intrusion causes. The damage can be instantaneous, such as the pooling of water on surfaces or could be slow like ruining surfaces through rusting of iron, rotting of wood, delaminating of carpets, and mold growth.

Water damage in your Augusta residence can also warp wood, shrink leather, and ruin electronics. The destruction can get worse if you delay restoration services. After such an incident, it is sensible to seek professional help from SERVPRO because we can immediately stop further damage. Our team of technicians is certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Apart from following IICRC guidelines and processes, we also comply with all federal and state regulations when restoring properties.

Our technicians can assess your property and accurately determine the restoration efforts it needs. Safety hazards are usually present after water loss incidents. We take safety concerns seriously and address them before we begin remediation and restoration work. We take steps to maintain a safe environment for everyone on the worksite. Some of the things we do to ensure safety include:

    •    Looking out for potential electrical hazards.
    •    Covering tack strip to prevent injuries.
    •    Using ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) on electrical equipment.
    •    Looking out for mold growth.

Our crew also considers how long the water has been in a building. We use advanced equipment that helps us in detecting moisture, extracting water, and drying affected structures and contents. We choose the appropriate extractor, depending on the severity of water damage and the affected surfaces. We can use a portable extractor to remove the water. This equipment is easy to take and operate in all affected areas of your property. The unit provides sufficient water removal that helps speed up the drying process.

The humidity left on the surfaces after water extraction can be exceptionally high. Ignoring moisture for an extended period can lead to mold development. We aim to keep our clients safe from mold infestation by offering same-day cleanup services. Our restoration process encompasses the prevention of mold damage and mold remediation if it is present.

Our SERVPRO technicians can use a venting box fan to dry the affected area. This device can move large volumes of dry air from outside to replace the humid air in the structure. It speeds up the evaporation process and reduces drying time by pushing moisture from the affected surfaces into the air as vapor. We can then use a refrigerant dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air.

If you are dealing with a water intrusion incident in Evans, Martinez, or Grovetown, call SERVPRO of Columbia County at (706) 868-5441. We provide comprehensive services to deal with any water loss incident to make it seem, “Like it never even happened.”
