Water in basement. Water damage? No problem.

Water from a leaking pipe or overflowing sink can damage a home quickly with the liquid spreading everywhere. Regardless of the cause, it is essential to shut the source of the water off as soon as you notice spillage in your home. Turn the faucets off if a sink is overflowing. Locate and turn the main water valve off to limit the amount of additional damage caused by a broken water pipe. Always confirm that it is safe to enter your home if there is deep pooling water.

SERVPRO of Farmington can focus on water removal in your home quickly. Before entering the area, we first ensure that it is safe to do so. If there are electrical appliances involved, we ensure that the electricity is turned off before entering. We also want to protect the occupants from any potential hazard.

We understand how important it is to limit the water damage by removing anything that can cause secondary negative effects. For example, books and papers on a wet carpet can cause stain transfer. We remove these materials from the room and the wet carpeting. Furniture can also be relocated or blocked with wood or high-density foam to avoid rusting or warping from the metal feet of couches, chairs, tables or appliances.

SERVPRO of Farmington’s water damage restoration technicians (WRT) understand that extracting as much water as possible before using dehumidification equipment expedites the recovery time. Portable extractors are used in most cases to remove the water. Squeegees can be used on hard surfaces to push away as much water as possible. Elimination of all the standing water allows your home to dry faster.

The best time to eradicate stains is while the carpeting is still damp. SERVPRO of Farmington can attempt to remove the markings on the carpets carefully to avoid further damage to walls or baseboards. We can save a section of the carpet to assist in the selection of new materials for the restoration of the home. All discarded materials are placed in plastic bags to avoid further damage to unaffected areas.
