As part of the larger Augusta Metropolitan area, the town is part of the vast service district for our SERVPRO team.

Initial Water Damage Inspection in Waynesboro Homes

Job scoping is a vital effort to determine how widespread and severe water damage is for a home. This determines material conditions, safety hazards, and restoration plans. Inspecting each of the house contents can decide which items can get dried and cleaned on-site and require advanced restoration in the SERVPRO facility nearby. 

Water Mitigation Steps and Stages for Homes in Waynesboro

Because mitigation is such an essential part of the restoration process, there are multiple stages that our team undertakes with each water cleanup project. Extraction is among the first actions that must get taken when surface water concerns are a threat to the property, as absorption can allow for a rapid deterioration of porous building materials. Trapped moisture and water can also get addressed with a combination of specialty extractors and drying tools, such as: 

  • Weighted extractors
  • Carpet wands 
  • Air movers
  • Floor drying mat system

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.
