ServiceMaster Clean® 6-Step Water Damage Restoration Process
A careful inspection of the building’s structure is the first step. We determine what areas and materials are affected, and plan the most effective restoration process to successfully restore your property.
Categories of Water Damage | Classes of Water Damage
The source of the water or moisture must be identified and shut off. Once this is completed, our technicians begin extracting the water.
Bacterial growth and mold are common concerns for improperly restored water damage sites. Application of an antimicrobial solution is part of our process for protecting your commercial building from these future issues.
Air flow is maintained throughout wet areas to assist the drying process. Specialized equipment is used for this purpose, and must be kept on as recommended by the technician for optimal drying.
Dehumidification is a vital step in the drying process. Moisture is pulled from the air, which assists in drying and helps prevent secondary damage in other parts of the affected area.
Regular monitoring and documentation of moisture levels in your commercial building throughout the water damage restoration process is key for properly drying the facility. This step ensures that hidden pockets of moisture do not remain within affected walls, flooring, or other spaces that may seem dry to the touch.
