SERVPRO Arrives Quickly to Your Raleigh Property to Begin Water Damage Mitigation and Restoration

When it comes to restoring your Raleigh property after water damage takes place, mitigation must become part of the process. SERVPRO arrives within hours of your call to begin mitigation and remediation. Mitigating water damage means preventing further damage from impacting your property or belongings. Our crew can lessen secondary losses and the onset of mold and mildew with specialized techniques and equipment. Everything gets done as a way to ensure your property gets left “Like it never even happened.”

With water damage mitigation in Raleigh, SERVPRO initiates treatment strategies, pack-outs, and water removal services. We take the time to ensure all standing water gets removed while also considering the potential for trapped moisture pockets under your flooring or behind walls.

Whenever possible, our IICRC-certified water restoration technicians (WRT) work to restore and repair rather than replace. If you have unsalvageable materials throughout your home, we might perform controlled demolition to restore everything to pre-water event condition. If your Raleigh property has hardwood flooring impacted by water, we use drying mats that allow us to execute water cleanup. Always know that:

  • DIY water removal with a mop and bucket or wet/dry vacuum will not always get the job done right.
  • Prolonged moisture and oversaturation on hardwood flooring can lead to warping or bloating, making them challenging to restore without extensive water damage repairs.
  • We sometimes use tenting to remove any trapped moisture during the drying process.
  • Drying mat placement and regular adjustments help to maximize output and the ability to achieve our drying goals.

Never leave water damage mitigation to chance. Our team at SERVPRO of Southeast Raleigh/Garner is here to help 24/7. Call us at (919) 615-1179, and we can send a crew as soon as possible.
