Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Richmond County, GA

One of the original counties in Georiga, Richmond County is a community that cares. That same spirit comes through in the way that our SERVPRO team responds to water disasters that impact the residents of the town. We stay prepared for water disasters with stocked trailers, pull-behind generators and dehumidifiers, and many extraction and drying tools. The faster our professionals reach a damaged home or business, the less out-of-pocket expenses that our customers must endure. 

Water Removal and Mitigation Solutions in Richmond County

Mitigation is a stage designed exclusively to reduce the overall losses a customer experiences. Water removal is the start of this process, as standing water presents a persistent problem for exposed structural elements and contents. Surface pooling can get addressed in multiple ways based on depth. For shallow damage, wet vacuums and attachments can manage the threat, though when the pool is deeper, we can use submersible pumps like: 

  • Trash pumps
  • Truck-mount pumps
  • Electric submersibles

Thorough Drying Practices for Water Damage to Richmond County Homes

Drying the house after a water disaster is among the chief steps in successfully restoring the property. For our experienced SERVPRO team, determining the necessary drying units and tools is determined by monitoring and discovery devices like thermal imagery and hygrometers. We can then utilize air movers and dehumidifiers, and specialty tools like positive pressure systems, to evaporate and remove moisture and water.

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 carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

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.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which 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.

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.
