Let us Help You with Your Water Damage Restoration

Water is essential to human life, but it can cause headaches for homeowners immediately after a water loss incident and in the long run. A burst pipe can cause gallons of water to pool in your living room, bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom. To prevent further damage to your home and contents, you should stop the flow of water by shutting off the main water line.

If water has pooled in several rooms, cut off the gas and electricity from the main source to prevent electrocution and fire hazards. You should then call a professional restoration company like SERVPRO to help you manage the water damage in your Crossville home. Before beginning the cleanup process, we assess the damage and take photographs that are useful when filing an insurance claim. Our technicians also remove valuable possessions from the affected areas.

Water can weaken the wooden structures and corrode metal, which could lead to high-priced reconstruction work. Water also weakens the backings of carpets, making them susceptible to wear and tear. Mold growth is the other problem you may deal with after a water loss incident. Organic matter and moisture are the only prerequisites for mold to grow, and it can form colonies if no one detects it. We offer an immediate response to water intrusion to prevent additional destruction of the contents of a home and building materials like drywall, hardwood flooring, and carpeting.

Water Damage Restoration

Our knowledgeable Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) can use portable extractors like wet/dry vacuums to remove stagnant water. If a carpeted floor has absorbed the water, we can inspect the carpet and the pad to determine if it is necessary to remove them to protect the subfloor. If removal is unnecessary, our crew can use the right method to clean the carpet based on the soiling level and then deodorize it.

Our SERVPRO crews also use portable air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the affected areas. Air moving and dehumidification equipment remove water from damaged materials and the indoor environment, speeding up the drying process. Evaporation adds moisture to the air as it is evaporated from saturated materials.

Dehumidification removes this moisture from the air. We set up air movers and dehumidifiers to achieve a balanced drying system, meaning that the rate of evaporation is slightly less than or equal to the rate of dehumidification. Sometimes, water damage may not be clear, and our crews, therefore, use infrared cameras to inspect and monitor the moisture in building materials.

Our technicians have the experience to take quick action, get the cleanup and drying process started, and work closely with your insurance company to manage the claims process and paperwork. We can keep you and your insurance firm informed at every step of the cleanup process.
