How Water Cleanup Works For Hudson Residents
How Water Cleanup Works
Water or fire damage is a distressing situation, and your response is crucial. When water leaks, it can carry bacterias, sewage or grime into your home, staining furniture, carpets, walls, and floors. The quicker we respond to the situation the less likely it is that permanent damage occurs. SERVPRO has a crew of highly trained technicians who can be onsite within just 4 hours from notice of loss.
A quick response is crucial to homes that need water cleanup in Hudson. The thing a qualified water technician can do when arriving on site is to assess immediate danger and mitigate loss. That begins by finding the source of water, cordoning off areas of danger and removing furniture and possessions.
In our 40 years of experience, our experts have found that communication is key to the job. A SERVPRO professional can provide you with a detailed, step-by-step explanation of the process as well as the likely outcome of each step. If you know of any pre-existing conditions or materials that could be a problem, like asbestos, you need to let our team know.
Once we are both satisfied, we begin by extracting water. SERVPRO can use powerful submersible gas pumps to extract pooling water. In less extreme cases, we can use industrial wet/dry vacuums to bring moisture out of carpeted floors. How long the initial drying process takes depends on the size of the affected area and the extent of damage which is measured using moisture meters.
With the initial phase complete, we can begin the restoration process. Carpets can be removed to clean and dry both sides, reducing the possibility of mold growth after the event. Items can be treated with sanitizer, dried, deodorized and returned to their original place. SERVPRO always look to mitigate loss, but in some cases, items may be beyond repair.
A full explanation can be given during the final walkaround to show you where work has been done and areas where replacements are necessary. We then clear away our tools, remove any barriers placed in affected areas and leave you with a clean, water-free home.
If you find your home in a water emergency, your first call should be your insurance company. The second should be SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord. Call us on (978) 486-9868 now, and we promise to arrange a service within one hour.
