The Importance of Swift Action in Response to Water Damage

12/13/2023 (Permalink)

Our technicians at SERVPRO of Belle Meade/West Nashville have worked on numerous water damage restoration projects, and a common theme is that acting fast can make all the difference during restoration. If you should unfortunately experience water damage to your Nashville property, it is imperative that you reach out for aid from SERVPRO immediately. Let’s discuss why swift action is so important when it comes to water damage.

The Importance of Fast Action After Water Damage 

  • Secondary Damage: If water damage is not treated quickly, it can cause further, severe structural damage to your property. Drywall, ceilings, and flooring may all need to be replaced if water damage is not treated within 24 hours.
  • Mold Growth: Mold and mildew can form within hours of moisture exposure. Mold can cause numerous respiratory problems and other health issues, so it is paramount to act quickly to prevent mold from growing. 
  • Preserving Belongings: SERVPRO technicians work diligently to restore your property and treasured belongings after water damage, but you stand a much better chance of recovering your personal items if you call SERVPRO as soon as you spot water damage so we can stop the source of water and prevent the problem from spreading,

SERVPRO Water Damage Restoration

  • Assessment: As soon as our technicians receive your call, we will be on the way to you. We determine the scope of your water damage upon arrival and determine how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.
  • Water Removal & Drying: The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property and then use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water that is harder to access. 
  • Cleaning & Restoration: We clean all of the restorable items and structures damaged by the water, making sure to thoroughly clean and sanitize the area along the way. Restoration is the final step, and may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or major ones, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. Whatever services are required for restoration, we will go above and beyond to provide them.

Water damage can be overwhelming, but with SERVPRO Belle Meade/West Nashville available 24/7 at (615) 242-9391, you don’t have to worry for long. Our SERVPRO technicians will be on the way, ready to help as soon as we get your call. SERVPRO. Like it never even happened.
