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

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

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

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent 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

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.
