Why Families Trust SERVPRO to Mitigate Flood Damage in Durham

Once floodwaters recede from your community, it is common for your neighbors to come back to look at the damage. Much of it seems worse than expected, while sometimes surprises happen, also. Finding small personal items that the flood did not destroy can help you feel a little bit of hope after an extreme disaster.

Giving families hope is why SERVPRO gets called by many families in Durham to mitigate flood damage. We understand the value you place in your home. Making sure that things not only seem safe and secure but are once again “Like it never even happened” means we have done our job well and made conditions livable for another customer. Our skills and training come into play during a crisis like flooding, and we work as a team to get the recovery done as quickly as possible, all while keeping costs as low as we can.

Becoming IICRC-certified in the many areas flood damage requires takes time and dedication. Completing several of these eliminates those who might think our job is an easy one. Not only must we clean up your home, check for safety issues to protect ourselves and our coworkers, but also ensure that the home environment is secure.

Removing debris, including large pieces of materials pushed in as well as broken furniture or ruined belongings, silt, ruined foodstuffs, appliances, mattresses, and carpeting creates small mountains of your previous household items at the curb. SERVPRO prefers to use a dumpster to keep things as orderly as possible, whenever we can, but we understand not all locations have this option. We uncomplicate the process as much as we can, working with both yourself and others outside the home, including agencies and other services and businesses. We have done this work before, and we use our previous networking with others who can assist when you need it most to alleviate the rigors of this situation even further.

SERVPRO of North Durham knows that mitigating flood damage in Bahama, Weaver, and Upland requires more than knowledge and skill – it also requires compassion and perseverance. Our team members have what it takes to help guide you through the initial stages of mitigation and restoration, and getting your family's routine back to normal. Call (919) 467-0880, 24/7, any day of the year.

Why SERVPRO Durham Homeowner Needs Emergency Water Extraction, Fast? Call SERVPRO   Rapid Water Extraction Mitigates Damage--That's Why Call SERVPRO

Water Removal for Your Home in Durham

Water damage from your bathtub overflowing in your Durham home can be quite devastating, especially if it went unnoticed at first. Left long enough, and the room below the bathroom could wind up with a collapsed ceiling, making quite the mess of your home.
 
Once a disaster like this has occurred, you need water removal services for your Durham home and fast. Our SERVPRO technicians waste no time in getting to your residence once you call us for help, and we work thoroughly and quickly to prevent additional damages. It is not difficult to see why SERVPRO is the choice of so many homeowners after a water damage emergency.
 
Once we arrive at your home, we carefully inspect every aspect of the damaged areas. Our primary goal is to mitigate the water damage and restore your home. We first need to pump out any standing water if it is two or more inches deep using a portable, submersible device. SERVPRO techs check walls and floors under the damaged area for water and pump out as necessary.
 
A moisture meter is used to figure out how badly the water has penetrated floors, walls, carpeting, and ceilings. We also move and block furniture as needed. Water is extracted from hard surface flooring and carpets. If needed, we detach the carpet and extract water from the padding and floor underneath. A majority of the time, the pad needs to be removed and discarded to salvage the carpet with more rapid drying. Drying mats can be placed on hardwood flooring to draw out any residual moisture and water droplets.
 
Once we have extracted all the excess water possible, we need to dry your structure back out. Air movers are positioned to deliver a rapid airflow over wet surfaces. We base the number of air movers we use in the space based on recommendations from IICRC and experience. Some can produce a heated current which helps to evaporate the moisture swept off objects by the air movement allowing dehumidifiers to then capture and condense this water vapor.
 
When SERVPRO of North Durham comes to your home in Gorman, Rocky Knoll, or Chester to clean up a water damage emergency, you can trust you are getting a thorough and knowledgeable service. Contact us by dialing (919) 467-0880.
