SERVPRO Keys on Drying Out Your Home in Mt. Juliet Following Water Damage

Water damage in Mt. Juliet can be a devastating reality for residential property owners. However, professional water damage restoration specialists can help you quickly restore your property and get your life back to normal. The professionals of SERVPRO have been providing high-quality restoration services for over 55 years, and our IICRC-certified technicians are highly skilled in expediting this important process. Learn more about how we optimize the water damage restoration project by reviewing this short outline:

The Property Assessment. The initial step the professionals of SERVPRO will do upon arriving at your home is to provide you with a property assessment. This assessment, through careful inspection, helps our team determine the extent of your water damages. Upon this determination, we can work directly with your insurance provider to coordinate an agreed upon water damage restoration process. Mutual cooperation, with the okay of you and your adjuster, expedite the restoration process and mitigate your out-of-pocket expenses.

Water Damage Classification. The professionals of SERVPRO utilize standards established by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to classify your water damage. This classification will aid in establishing proper drying and cleaning steps. Water extraction sets the process. There are four classes:

Class 1: The losses are quickly caught, confined and involve few absorbent structures and possessions.

Class 2: The primary losses are highly absorbent materials on the floor, such as padding and carpeting.

Class 3: Water damage results from originating overhead and impact drywall, insulation, wall frames, and ceilings. Flooring materials with a high rate of absorbency are impacted.

Class 4: Specialty drying for saturated ground soil, masonry, plaster, stucco, concrete, and hardwood flooring and furniture.

Water Drying Process. The next component of the Mt. Juliet water damage restoration process will be water drying. The drying process will typically involve four steps:

1. Removal of excess water. Our professionals use several methodologies to accomplish this objective, including powerful truck-mounted water pumps, portable and rideable wet-vacuums, and even mops and buckets.

2. Evaporation. We use specialized equipment like air movers (high velocity specialized fans), heaters, and dryers to remove remaining accumulated water.

3. Dehumidification. Because water intrusion generates increased moisture levels making the ambient air more humid, we'll utilize dehumidification strategies to extract moisture from the air. SERVPRO has advanced desiccant (chemical based), refrigerant (like a/c action), and basic dehumidifiers to speed the drying process to completion.

4. Dry Result. The SERVPRO technicians will use moisture meters and thermohygrometers to gauge heat and relative humidity, both reliable monitoring devices. This helps us determine if any adjustments or further treatments are necessary to complete the drying process. We will provide you with a guarantee of successful drying of your property.
