“Dealing with a flood” in Kennesaw GA, makes most business and home owner’s list of worst-case scenarios. We typically find during most water damages that the basement is affected whether it is a pipe leak or a result of outdoor flooding. Water travels to the lowest point so it usually winds up in the basement or crawlspace. SERVPRO of East Cobb's highly trained professionals can dry out your home or business using our top-notch equipment and drying techniques.
Here are a few things you should expect over the course of our service:
Depending on how large the affected area of your property is and how many contents are involved, SERVPRO of East Cobb will likely move furniture and other personal belongings out of the structure or to a non-affected area. This will allow us to clean and restore the affected area more efficiently and effectively. This will also allow for additional room so that the restoration equipment can be placed in a way that will successfully dry out the property.
Once the contents have been manipulated, our restoration team will start extracting water by using a submersible pump or extraction unit. Submersible pumps have enclosed motors which allow the pumps to be submerged into water and pump the water out of the area. Our extraction units allow for pumping of standing water into a portable tank which can then be disposed offsite. Either method will successfully remove any water from your basement.
Drying and Cleaning
After the water is removed from your basement our professionals will place specialized equipment to dry the structure of your home. This specialized equipment will include air movers to evaporate the moisture from affected materials and dehumidifiers to lower the humidity in the affected area. Drying out your home after a water loss is essential to keep mold from growing. If mold has already started to grow, SERVPRO of East Cobb has trained professionals standing ready to remediate your home or business 24/7. Drying your home will require several visits to monitor the progress of drying and to manipulate the equipment to achieve moisture contents goals. The affected area of your home will be treated with an antimicrobial agent, which will keep odors at bay as well as prevent microbial growth.
