Water Damage Stage - Where Are You At?

Every water loss is unique in how the loss occurred, type of materials affected, and to amount of square footage on-site was disturbed. The single most important factor to restoring your home is a fast response time. We encourage you to communicate when your water loss first occurred to your local SERVPRO® of Columbia County team so we can determine the stage of potential damage your property has undergone.

Water losses demand a fast response to resolve most of the damage within the first couple of days, and this involves multiple mitigation tactics. Through notifying your insurance company and SERVPRO® of Columbia County promptly, you place your home on the road to being restored properly and efficiently.

Restore – Not Replace!

Protecting your property and your belongings means selecting SERVPRO® of Columbia County’s in-house restoration team to clean both structure and contents. We aim to Restore – Not Replace. For you, this may mean that there could be very minimal structural changes during your water loss Martinez process such as only removing baseboards, or only some pieces of flooring pulled to properly dry the structure.

Because of our advanced technology, we can mitigate quickly and more efficiently while being less invasive.

Protecting your property and your contents often involves several steps. After discovering the stage your property is at; we can begin one of the following process solutions to restore your home:

  • Extraction – Removes standing water trapped in your home using multiple different attachment tools and high-powered extraction machines.
  • Controlled Demolition – When specific materials are too damaged and wet to dry and still retain the proper structural integrity of your home, our crews begin a process of 'controlled demolition' where they, along with your insurance determine the damages, then discard these damaged elements of your home to prepare for replacement.
  • Content Management – We aim to protect your belongings. As a method to do such, our teams work with your insurance to sort through and determine what is salvageable for restoring your items to preloss condition. Items we specifically search for restoring are often keepsakes, heirlooms, and other sentimental items.
  • Repairs – Often water losses occur not from negligence, but from broken plumbing or sink fixtures. If this is the case for your home, repairs may be a necessary part in the restoration process.
  • Cleaning – Typically as a last step in our process, the Cleaning Stage helps your home to appear "Like it never even happened."® Part of the Cleaning Stage is to remove any debris and clean the structure to remove any hazards on-site.
