Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Wilmington, DE

Prompt Water Damage Response for Wilmington Homes

As the most populated city in Delaware, Wilmington has seen a fair share of disastrous situations like pipe bursts, appliance failures, and other damaging circumstances. As a leading water restoration company, our SERVPRO team is centrally located in New Castle County to respond quickly in an emergency. Rapid reactions to water damage can help us better manage even substantial disasters like Drexel University or Wilmington University.

Water Removal Tactics Benefit Wilmington Properties

Water mitigation is critical to protect structures and their contents. This is especially true for some of the historic buildings in the region like the Old Customshouse or the Friends Meeting House in the Quaker Hill area. Removing standing water can be a focal point for responding technicians to prevent absorption into wood flooring, framing, and other sensitive materials used in construction. With more than 70,000 residents in the city, extraction and mitigation must be efficient to keep our technicians ready for the next emergency.

Water Damage Repairs for Homes and Businesses

Many damages must be addressed before cleaning and restoring your home, including the repair to plumbing or appliances. These repairs are vital to reestablishing service in public buildings like the Delaware Art Museum or The Wilmington Library. With a team of in-house contractors ready and able to help, we can identify the problem areas where controlled demolition is necessary, repair missing or damaged plumbing, and provide temporary construction solutions to prevent secondary damages.

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 carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful 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

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to 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.
