Proper Drying of Any Structure
SERVPRO of The Woodlands/Conroe is dedicated to providing the community with safe and accurate restoration and mitigation services. Our goal is to dry any structure within 3 - 5 days of the first notice of loss.
Proper drying protocols are determined by IICRC the leading national council on restorative cleaning processes. According to IICRC the best way to prevent mold is to properly dry out both the structure and contents within 48 to 72 hours after a water damage.
Our process includes three distinct steps:
- Mitigation - mitigation helps to reduce the cost of the loss and prevents moisture from spreading to additional areas of the structure. Mitigation services include immediate water extraction of standing water on the surface of the structure floors. This process also includes stabilization of the environment with the introduction of drying equipment.
- Remediation - remediation includes the advanced drying of the structure and content within the structure. Content can include furniture, fixtures and personal belongings. Air saturated with water will not allow materials to dry. To properly dry both the structure and content we introduce the tag-team of drying equipment which includes dehumidifiers and air movers. During the remediation process building materials may be removed based on the desecration of the Production Manager on site and the insurance adjuster if the claim is being filed under an insurance carrier. Building materials that are most often removed include; drywall, insulation, flooring and in many cases ceiling tiles.
- Reconstruction - the final step of the process and to make your loss, "Like it never even happened." is to replace any building materials that have been removed. Our in-house construction team can replace any building materials to help make the situation good as new or good as your property was before the water loss happened.
In total the remediation process is a simple, yet important, process in dealing with any water loss.
