SERVPRO Follows Proven Protocols to Restore Your Water Damaged Grand Junction Home
Steps for Restoring Your Grand Junction Home After Water Damage
Water damage can make your life miserable. It wreaks havoc in a home within no time if not attended to. The first hours of a water loss incident are critical. If you experience this disaster, it is vital to act fast because water and moisture create a suitable environment for mold growth.
After you discover water damage in your Grand Junction home, it is essential to hire water restoration experts from SERVPRO to remove the water and start the restoration process. The sooner we arrive, the better so that the drying process can start. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRTs) can help you avoid excessive destruction of your home. Our water damage restoration process involves the following steps.
We assess the extent of the destruction and then use moisture meters and infrared cameras to detect hidden water in floors, ceilings, and walls. Infrared cameras provide a big picture of where the hidden moisture is, while moisture meters measure moisture levels. Our technicians use moisture meters to inspect the problem areas that the cameras display. We then come up with a detailed drying plan to remove the moisture quickly and effectively. If necessary, we can inventory the affected items and determine if it is possible to restore them or not. We can pack out inventoried items for storage and cleaning.
Industrial grade drying
We extract water from a building using powerful pumps. Our crew then uses specialized drying equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process. Drying is vital as it prevents mold growth that can cause additional damage. Our team carefully monitors the progress of the drying process and records moisture levels until Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) is attained. Our technicians know the appropriate equipment to dry your home. For instance, we know that desiccant dehumidifiers are ideal for drying low evaporation materials such as hardwood flooring. We also grasp how to operate the equipment properly to dry structures and contents thoroughly. Drying time depends on factors like, the time that has elapsed since the disaster and severity of the damage.
Sanitization and deodorization
Once we complete drying, we determine if further deodorization or sanitization is necessary. We can eliminate odors using specialized equipment and processes. Our SERVPRO crew can use germicides and disinfectants to sanitize your home. These antimicrobial products destroy 99 percent of the organisms they contact on the surfaces where we apply them.
After a house is dry, we inspect it to determine if additional structural damage occurred. We can then subcontract the repair work if necessary. Of course, the homeowner can select a preferred contractor.
