Water Damage Cleanup
ServiceMaster of North Texas considers all water damage situations as emergencies as it spreads throughout porous materials including wood, paint, drywall, and other surfaces with little holes. But we will arrive within 2-3 hours of your initial call to immediately extract the water, assess the damage, and set up the drying equipment.
Each of our technicians are IICRC-certified and will form a restoration plan that adheres to the Advanced Structural Drying Guidelines. Our advanced equipment includes dehumidifiers, air movers, and moisture meters that help us completely dry structural elements, furnishings, and other objects affected by the water.
When we arrive, we use moisture meters to determine how much water has been absorbed and to complete our evaluation of the damage. This helps us to form the appropriate water damage restoration plan, identifying the areas that require most attention while strategically setting up the drying equipment.
Flood Extraction – What to Do:
- Call ServiceMaster of North Texas to prevent the damage from spreading.
- Place a piece of foil between all furniture legs and wet floor to prevent the water from traveling upwards.
- Lift up any furniture skirts and draperies from the wet floor.
- Place any items that are not tacked down to the floor in a high, safe location.
- If there is standing water in the building, turn off the power to avoid electrocution. Our backup generators will provide temporary electricity.
- Search for the source of the excess water and try to stop it.
- Do not touch any of the flood water if it may be contaminated with sewage.
- Put damaged items in a dry area to determine what can be saved and what has to be replaced.
