Water leak around this toilet caused significant damage.

Just like snowflakes, no two water losses are the same. But they do have the same stage of response, recovery, and restoration. At SERVPRO of Lexington / Thomasville our WRT-Certified professionals have trained in the latest mitigation and restoration techniques. They are all IICRC certified, which is the high certification you can get in the restoration industry. And they follow these guidelines during a water loss.

Pre-Job Preparation

Understanding the home’s current condition is critical before our technicians arrive on the scene. That’s why we ask so many questions during that first initial call. We need to assess the situation understand what type of damage, whether there is standing water, and the materials affected, such as flooring, walls, and ceilings.

Mitigation and Secondary Damage Prevention

During the water mitigation phase, the team at SERVPRO of Lexington / Thomasville take significant steps to reduce the risk of secondary damage by preventing current conditions from worsening. By arriving quickly to extract water, our technicians can:

  • Remove any materials in standing water to prevent damage
  • Block Furniture
  • Remove materials that cannot be restored any may hold water
  • Remove contents to a secondary location to begin the restoration process.
    Once the drying is complete, our technicians will restore your home to preloss conditions.
