Act Quick If Water Damages Your Home

This home in Stantonsburg experienced a water damage from a leaking pipe underneath the kitchen sink. The water had saturated the kitchen floor and the crawlspace beneath. In any water damage event, the goal is to dry out the wet materials as soon as possible in order to prevent them from having to be replaced. At this specific job, water was left to sit for an extended period of time, making the floor unable to be dried completely. The floor covering, sub floor, and other wet materials had to be tore out and replaced. In addition to that, mold had began to grow on the wet drywall around the leaking pipe. The effects from a water damage happen quick and need immediate action to avoid worse damage and costly repairs.

Daily Job-Site & Equipment Inspections

Brian Reneau, Production Manager of SERVPRO of Wilson/Nashville, has a variety of different responsibilities.  As depicted, he is performing an Equipment & Job Site Inspection at a Commercial Water Loss in Wilson, NC.  At this particular Water Damage, a Hot Water Heater pipe has burst spraying the inside of a closet and migrating through the floor of half a dozen rooms.  Once his Inspections are complete, he must communicate with the Franchise Owner, Customer, Client, Crew and Sub-Contractors about what should be done to proceed.  Not every job is a simple, "cut and dry" operation.  Brian, especially with his many years of experience, has faced many adversities in the field.  Thanks to his incredible knowledge and patience, he can handle any situation with ease.

Our Drying Process

With every water damage, our technicians first priority is to find and extract as much water from the affected areas as possible. The second step requires non-salvageable materials to be discarded and documented per insurance and SERVPRO's standard requirements. Our last step incorporates the use of our air movers and dehumidifiers in conjunction with electronic documentation. Once in place, these pieces of equipment are used to dry the remaining salvageable materials by evaporating the water out of the materials and into the air. The dehumidifiers then pull the moisture from the air to condense and expel through the drain tube. We have over 100 pieces of equipment currently in stock and continue to acquire more! The drying process is the most important step for SERVPRO of Wilson/Nashville to make your disaster "Like it never even happened.®"
