In Dallas, The SERVPRO Way for Water Damage Restoration in Your Home

When your home in Dallas is impacted by water damage, you need to be aware of all the steps involved in the repair and restoration process. While the procedures implemented by water damage repair specialists may differ, SERVPRO has developed a time-tested basic recovery process.

 1. Water Removal

In restoring your home to its pre-water damaged condition, the immediate first step is water removal or extraction. Typically, this initial procedure involves removing all standing water that has pooled in various rooms of your Dallas home. Attention is also focused on removing wet materials that wick and hold water like insulation, damaged drywall, wood furniture and fabric, and carpeting and pads. Our technicians may use specialized truck-mounted powerful water pumps, portable vacuums, or other extraction equipment to optimize water removal.
 
2. Drying

After the water damage restoration technicians have removed excess water, the next stage in the process is drying. Our applied structural drying experts will use specialized equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers to complete this work. This effort is critically important because it mitigates the impact of moisture by quickly vacating it from the premises. Refrigerant or chemically active dehumidifiers are options for expediting moisture drop off to normal interior levels.  Additionally, the use of dehumidifiers helps preclude secondary water damage from arising, usually in the form of mold growth. This mold proliferation is a problem that is well worth stymying immediately.

3. Water Damage Repair

After your home's structure has been tested with moisture sensors and meters, thermohygrometers are used to calculate specific humidity, vapor pressure, and dew point. This final step ensures that water damaged areas are entirely dry. This outstanding protocol procedure from SERVPRO is one of the ways that our company differentiates itself from competitors. In most cases, we will also complete the repair process for you, from post-drying of the structure and furnishings and odor control, to mold remediation. We will remove water damaged building materials like drywall and flooring. Dispose of unsalvageable furniture and personal items and leave you an inventory report.

These three critical processes, at your residential property in Dallas, are paramount in returning you to a structurally sound and healthy home. We can even contact your insurance adjuster to coordinate the entire water damage restoration process, thereby saving you time and money while lessening personal stress for you. SERVPRO can quickly get you back into your Dallas home.
