Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
After emergency contact is made and all the preliminary information is collected, we know we need to act fast. When responding to a water damage emergency in Warren, Vienna, Newton Falls, Bazetta Township, or Geneva, SERVPRO professionals begin with a detailed inspection of your home or property, including a damage assessment. At this stage, our professionals are trying to determine the scope of the damage so that we can develop an appropriate plan of action. We will then communicate the extent of the damage and the plan of action for the property. Having a detailed plan not only gives the home or business owner piece of mind, but it is also crucial to ensuring your property is dried properly and thoroughly.
Identify and Stop the Water Source
We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.
- Stop the Source
- Check for Contaminated Water
Identify the Type of Water
We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure our professionals restore your property based on industry guidelines. The level of contamination of the water will affect the specific restoration processes we use.
- Category 1: "Clean Water"
- Category 2: "Gray Water"
- Category 3: "Black Water"
Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises
We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident. If there are any safety issues like lead or asbestos, please bring them to our attention.
