Water Mitigation is Crucial

When your home encounters flooding or a plumbing failure, mitigation is crucial toward preventing further Hendersonville water damage. The process should begin as soon as possible after the event by calling SERVPRO.

Cause and Effect
Damage occurs as the result of broken pipes or a rush of storm water. This quickly manifests as wet carpets, warped or ruptured floors and damaged walls and furniture. Hendersonville water mitigation must begin right away to limit the extent of the damage to your Nashville home.

Water Damage Catastrophe
With a plumbing emergency, the first step is to shut off the water at the main valve, along with the power breakers. This allows for the safe removal of electrical items. If flooding has occurred, the water will have to recede before any work can begin. All furniture that is sitting on a wet rug should have foil placed under the legs. Drapes, curtains and any other items that could be damaged should be removed from the area.

SERVPRO Professional Inspection
After the initial water issue has been handled, a professional SERVEPRO team should be called in to perform an inspection.  Hendersonville water damage will be assessed, and a rebuilding plan will be drawn up to restore the structure.

Removing the Water
Flood waters can be contaminated, causing illness. The SERVPRO team will remove water through the use of pumps and other related equipment. In many cases, the pumping process can be done without removing anything from the building, but items that have absorbed water will need to be moved.

Drying to Prevent Mold
Water damage can bring mold growth. Removing and preventing more mold requires the use of blowers and dehumidifiers and careful control of indoor humidity. This also prevents non-damaged items from absorbing excess moisture. These steps, combined with keeping a proper indoor temparature, will mitigate mold and baterial growth once the water has been removed.

The final phase of Hendersonville water mitigation is rebuilding and stabilization to ensure the building's integrity. While every project will be different, it is vital to engage the services of professional SERVPRO technicians that have the experience and equipment to treat water damage from start to finish.
