SERVPRO’s Water Damage Restoration Process for Syracuse Homes

Restoration of water damage to your Syracuse property is a complex process that requires meticulous planning and flawless execution. With years of experience and highly trained technicians, SERVPRO’s streamlined restoration process can save you both time and money.

SERVPRO technicians understand that time is of the essence when dealing with water damage in Syracuse properties. Hence, We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. We aim to begin the restoration process as quickly as possible to avoid any secondary damage to the structure. The restorative work is divided into several crucial steps, including the following-

  • Setting up a staging area to coordinate all activities 
  • Establishing engineering controls to prevent the contaminants from spreading to unaffected areas
  • Water extraction and bulk material removal
  • Providing humidity control to accelerate drying
  • Cleaning and decontaminating salvageable materials
  • Disposing of waste material
  • Verification of remediation 

Water Extraction After Water Damage to Your Syracuse Property

Extracting the standing water is a key step in the restoration process. Water lingering on materials causes more damage steadily. SERVPRO technicians use several state-of-the-art equipment to extract water from flooded Syracuse properties. Some of the gear that we use include-

  •    Extraction Units

Extractors are robust vacuum systems that can drain water from your flooded property. Depending on the amount of water that needs to be removed, SERVPRO technicians might use portable or truck-mounted systems. The portable systems are very flexible as the technicians can carry them to almost any part of the structure, but they require electricity. Besides, the portable systems aren’t powerful enough to move a large quantity of water.

The truck-mounted extractors can offer a lot more vacuum than the portable extractors. As they run on the vehicle’s fuel, they don’t require electrical power.

  •    Light Wands and deep extraction tools

Light wands and deep extraction tools are attached to the extractors and can remove residual moisture from the carpets and pads. The deep extraction tools can be self-propelled or stationary and work by compressing the rug and pad to squeeze water out, which is vacuumed off by the extractor.

  •    Pumps

Pumps used in water damage restoration vary in capacity and function. Different types of pumps offer various sets of advantages and disadvantages. The three types of pumps that SERVPRO technicians use for water removal in most residential properties include trash pumps, high-pressure pumps, and submersible pumps.

The trash pumps are very effective in pumping out water containing a lot of suspended solids. However, they offer little lift and are not ideal for pumping water from underground structures such as basements.

Submersible pumps offer a great vertical lift and provide continuous and quiet operation. Technicians can also use submersible pumps in occupied spaces as they work on electricity.

Humidity and Airflow Control  

Once the techs extract the standing water for your property, the next step is to provide humidity and airflow control to accelerate the drying process. SERVPRO techs use dehumidifiers and air movers to create ideal drying conditions.

The dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air by condensing it into liquid water or absorbing it onto a desiccating media. The goal here is to facilitate the evaporation of water off the wet surface into the air.

Air movers help in the circulation of dehumidified air throughout the structure. As the air movers replace colder, saturated air with warmer and drier air, strategic placement of these pieces of equipment accelerates drying.

SERVPRO is committed to providing quality and reliable service to Syracuse residents and helping restore your home “Like it never even happened.”
