SERVPRO of Rock Hill & York County Provides Water Damage Service 

Many types of natural disasters could impact your home, and flooding is one of the most common events that homeowners in the New Hope area may encounter. Water damage can wreak havoc on your property, and you may wonder if there is hope for your structure and everything inside it to be restored to its former condition after a flood. The good news is that your property can be restored to like-new condition by following a few key steps. 

Removing the Standing Water 
After a building has been flooded, standing water is a huge problem. Removing this water is the first step to take when you want to repair your property. The longer the water remains in the home, the more likely you are to deal with significant water damage and mold growth issues. Therefore, time is of the essence when dealing with water issues. Using a powerful wet vacuum device to extract the standing water is an effective way to remove the water quickly. With a significant amount of pooling water, it may be wise to call upon the services of SERVPRO to extract the water using truck mounted pumps and other heavy duty equipment.

Addressing the Issue of Humidity 
Once the standing water has been removed from the property, the work is not yet done. Often, high humidity levels will linger in the structure after the water has been extracted. High humidity levels can be damaging to many surfaces in the building, so the air must be dried out. Powerful fans, air movers, can be used to dry out the property by increasing the rate of evaporation, and they may need to run non-stop for several days or longer in order to provide the results desired. Dehumidifiers are also needed to pull moisture from the air and then devices like hygrometers can measure the RH-relative humidity within the house.

Restoring the Property 
The cleanup isn't finished even after the water removal and humidity levels have been addressed. For example, you may need to remedy issues such as odors, water stains, wetted photographs, building materials, and warped wood. Carpeting and some other materials may be professionally cleaned to by SERVPRO restore them to like-new condition, but other materials, such as drywall, may need to be replaced.
