Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Edgemoor, DE

How To Respond to A Water Emergency in Your Edgemoor Home

There is no mistaking the destructive force of water, as many of Edgemoor property owners have experienced or witnessed the forces of flooding in the area in the past several years. When water damage exists in the house, it can be equally disastrous without a fast and prompt response. As a leading water restoration company for New Castle County, our SERVPRO of Brandywine / Wilmington team knows the importance of calculated mitigation to protect your property and its belongings. This tailored response helps homes in the area as well as protected historical landmarks like the Marcus Hook Range Rear Lighthouse structures.

How Does Water Get Removed from the Property?

Water mitigation embodies many specific tasks, but often this begins with removing any standing water or trapped moisture from flooring, wall systems, and other exposed elements. With charter schools in the immediate area like the East Side Charter School or the Thomas Edison Charter School, water mitigation after an emergency in these buildings is vital. Finite resources that must get protected in these buildings require efficient water removal, cleaning, and content relocation.

What Tools Get Used for Drying Edgemoor Homes and Businesses?

The right tools for the job make a difference in moisture removal and evaporative drying. With many warehouses and businesses positioned on Northeast Boulevard and shopping in Merchant's Square, we must choose the best machines to eliminate moisture, including air movers, dehumidifiers, and portable heaters.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

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 which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
