The Water Damage Restoration Process

What Should You Expect When Our SERVPRO Team Restores Water Losses in Miami Properties?

Water losses can often be among the most devastating of situations for homes and businesses throughout Miami because migration can allow multiple areas of the property to become affected before mitigation and restoration processes can begin. Knowing what to expect from responding technicians arriving at the property can help customers to be more at ease with recovery efforts and prevent actions that might impede the successes of extraction and drying.

Knowing that water restoration must happen as quickly as possible can put stress on the property owner to act immediately upon the discovery of a water emergency. Much like our city that never takes a moment to catch its breath, we have recovery technicians available 24/7 to perform a variety of emergency actions upon arriving at your Miami home. Many of these preliminary actions can even precede the full scoping of the job by our project manager and crew chief.

Emergency Services That Reduce Property Losses

  • Extraction by electric submersible pump or truck-mount extractor when standing water exists in the residence.
  • Debris and residue removal from the surface of extracted materials
  • Content management to remove at-risk belongings from the path of migrating water
  • Treatments to exposed structural elements sensitive to microbial growth

The water restoration process is one that can vary, but our professionals can do whatever your home needs to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. You can click on any of the steps below to learn more about that process.

Step 1 - Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources.

Step 2 - Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage. We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

Step 3 - Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property, which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

Step 4 - Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water that is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

Step 5 - Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean all of the restorable items and structures damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your property.

Step 6 - Restoration

Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
