Recovering Water Damage Happens in Steps

From broken pipes to broken appliances, the likelihood of experiencing water emergencies in your home is higher than in other disasters that our SERVPRO® team helps to address. We are experienced professionals accredited through the IICRC for rapid mitigation and restoration solutions.

Mansfield water damage is one of the more common threats that our SERVPRO team must face, so we keep extractors, dryers, and cleaning products always stocked in our Green Fleet™ of service vehicles. We can mobilize quickly after the first notice of loss to start emergency services.

The Emergency Repairs During Water Mitigation

Early in the response of our restoration professionals, we must arrive to bring emergency services that help expedite and aid the recovery work to follow. From immediate repairs needed for plumbing implements to temporary construction where floodwater could penetrate a property, we work quickly to overcome the primary threats to a structure.

How Does Water Removal Start?

Before much water damage restoration work can begin, responding technicians must address any standing water concerns in the structure. Pooling can be destructive to exposed materials, making it a mitigation priority. We have several approaches that can help with extraction and discharging standing water concerns from the house, including:

  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Wet vacuums
  • Truck-mount extractors
  • Trash pumps
  • High-pressure pumps

What Is Used to Dry Your Home?

Surface drying focuses on the areas of the house that SERVPRO can directly reach with placed high-velocity blowers and dehumidifiers. Air movers play an important role in restoration and recovery, and we have dozens of available units to deploy throughout a residence to get simultaneous drying underway.

Special Purpose Drying Units

Drying is not always so straightforward, however. Our professionals often must identify ideal approaches to trap water damage and moisture in building materials like flooring and wall systems. Removing these damp pockets can protect these installations in some situations. Special drying tools include:

  • Carpet Wands – High-powered extraction units using these wands can remove water from fibrous carpet flooring and the padding underneath it.
  • Weighted Extractors – Using the body weight of the restorer or a roving unit, SERVPRO professionals can press layers of carpeted flooring together to squeeze out trapped moisture.
  • Drying Mats – These mats are placed perpendicularly to installed planks of the floor to cover a broad area of this installation. Through capillary suction, water is pulled to the surface for removal.

Avoiding Additional Damages

It is not uncommon for water damage to become mold damage as well. We prevent these occurrences through proactive approaches to sensitive surfaces and materials. We have multiple antimicrobial products and sporicidal agents that render organic matter non-conductive for migrating colonies. When spores cannot impact hosting materials, they cannot create harmful organisms for the household. An early measure to reduce the likelihood of mold development is regulating environmental moisture through the appropriate placement of dehumidification equipment and HEPA filtration products.

The Likelihood of Repairs

Water can be destructive to building materials and utilities in a structure, making it likely to require repairs and reconstruction. SERVPRO can complete these actions and controlled demolition with our contractor license to provide customers with a more complete restoration and recovery package. We understand the importance of a fast transition to repairs after cleanup, and we can begin these actions as soon as possible with accredited and licensed contractors.

Because Mansfield water damage is common, our SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield team must stay prepared to answer this call as it happens. We have experienced professionals ready 24/7 to mobilize for critical mitigation actions and protect your home's structure and contents. Call us when disasters strike at (860)461-7194.
