SERVPRO, Yes for Rapid Water Removal after a Water Loss in New Orleans
In New Orleans, How to Choose the Right Provider for Water Extraction and Drying
Standing water can be exceptionally damaging to your home. Any wooden components in the structure of your home start to swell when introduced to water which can cause warping and lead to expensive, unnecessary replacement. There are also likely to be staining or soiling on your walls and skirtings left behind after the visible pooling is gone and any residual moisture can cause mold. As experienced practitioners in the industry, here are a few things you should ask for from your restoration provider.
Properties that require water removal in New Orleans are relatively common. Flash Floods are part of life for the communities in this part of the US, so it is only natural that there are a lot of service providers out there. Although it can be tempting to opt for the first one you find, spending a little time doing your research can pay dividends in the long run by ensuring you avoid secondary damages.
The first thing to look for is technicians that are qualified. Experience is valuable in any walk of life, but so too is training and expertise. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is an excellent place to start when checking if your provider has the necessary expertise. SERVPRO trains technicians in facilities all over the US and many of our technicians hold IICRC certificates in applied structural drying (ASD) and other vital areas of expertise.
Another important consideration for any homeowner looking to bring services into their home is resources. A company using outdated equipment and methods is incapable of completing a water removal service correctly. That is because water can easily escape the eye and reside in crawlspaces, wall cavities, subfloor or behind fittings. SERVPRO uses advanced drying mats and state-of-the-art injectidry systems. One of the reasons we can provide this type of equipment is that each franchise has access to national resources ensuring a better, advanced service.
