Serving Water Damage Restoration in Alexandria, VA and Washington D.C. area since 1986
As the premier water damage restoration company in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, ServiceMaster NCR has the experience and expertise to get your home dried out quickly. If you have water damage in your home, please contact us immediately before further damage can occur. The longer water sits unaddressed, the more damage it can cause, and the more likely mold growth may occur.
The Process for Water Damage Restoration In Alexandria VA
If water is still coming into your home, it is important to stop the intrusion as soon as possible to limit the damage and prepare the home for the drying process. If it is a plumbing leak, the quickest solution to this problem is to shut off the main water supply to your home until a plumber can assess the source of the leak. Once the water intrusion has stopped, it is critical to begin drying the home as soon as possible.
Our technicians are trained to protect your home throughout the drying process. We will set up containment barriers where necessary to keep the drying area contained. We will extract any standing water and apply an antimicrobial treatment where necessary to limit further microbial growth. We will set up industrial grade air movers and dehumidifiers to dry wet materials as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will be sure to protect your contents and personal belongings while the drying process is taking place. We will also return to your home to monitor the drying progress and adjust equipment as necessary to minimize the time it takes to return your home to appropriate moisture levels.
Initiating the drying process changes the environmental conditions of the home, which is an important first step in preventing mold growth and further damage to materials in the home. It is much more cost effective to prevent mold growth from occurring than addressing mold once mold growth has occurred.
Once your home has reached the targeted drying goals, your home will be ready for any necessary touch up work or repairs. If we are working with your insurance carrier, they will assign a repair contractor for this final step in returning your home to pre-loss conditions.
