Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Augusta, GA

Augusta is one of the fastest-growing cities in Georgia, second only to Atlanta. Because of its more than 600,000 residents in the metropolitan area, the persistent threat of water damage disasters is the scenario our SERVPRO professionals must stay prepared for at all times. Nearly all of our roster has Water Restoration (WRT) certification to ensure that no customer waits longer than necessary for mitigation to begin after a disaster.

Water Removal Techniques for Damaged Augusta Homes 

Extraction varies for each job that our technicians undertake for water restoration. The removal of standing water is critical to prevent absorption and subsequent deterioration of exposed structural elements and house contents. Like tall structures such as the Lamar Building or the Wells Fargo Building downtown, added challenges require special water removal tools beyond traditional extraction devices. Some of the tools we use for water removal include: 

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

Efficient Drying for Water Damaged Structures in Augusta 

Drying remains the foundational element of water restoration services, making the equipment used in the techniques employed among our technicians' most important tasks. Thorough drying involves an understanding of the presence of moisture pockets and dampness beyond surface materials. We have multiple monitoring tools that can ensure we completely dry structures to prevent microbial growth. Through controlled demolition and weep holes, we can infiltrate wall cavities in ceiling cavities to stop unnecessary tear-out.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

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

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
