SERVPRO Has Several Fast Water Damage Solutions for New Orleans Homes

Representing a city of nearly 400,000 and its sprawling general region, disasters like plumbing leaks, burst pipes, and appliance failures happen every day. Restoring properties to preloss conditions is a product of several mitigating and recovery steps to clean, dry, and repair the residence. We are ready to help in this venture 24/7 to ensure that emergency services are started as soon as possible.

Faster To Any Size Disaster

New Orleans water damage appears in many forms, from broken plumbing to flooding, so restoration professionals responding need to be prepared for anything. IICRC–Certified Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) make up the bulk of our restoration roster, ensuring that there are always professionals ready and able to respond whenever disasters strike. True to our slogan, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. We keep vehicles in our fleet continually stocked for water mitigation with:

  • Extractors
  • Air Movers
  • Heaters
  • Cleaning Products
  • Vacuums
  • Deodorizers

Emergency Services

Emergency services describe the series of actions taken even before much of the mitigation for the property begins. The fast arrival of our SERVPRO team with our contractor license allows us to make the work area safer for the WRT-Certified technicians arriving to mitigate loss. Emergency services can include:

  • Content Relocation
  • Controlled Demolition
  • Utility Repairs
  • Extraction

Tools of Effective Water Removal

Water mitigation typically hinges most directly on the actions taken to remove standing water on the property's floors. Depending on the severity of the pooling and the impact on nearby materials and contents, several extraction devices are necessary to complete this mitigation phase, including:

  • Pumps

Truck-mount extractors, trash pumps, and electric submersible pumps are powerful and consistent extraction choices for substantial pooling concerns. Many of the units in our supply can discharge hundreds of gallons of water per minute, allowing us to manage excessive standing water threats in a structure quickly.

  • Vacuums

Wet vacuums are among the most versatile pieces of water damage restoration equipment in our inventory. These are lightweight, portable, and can be used with several attachments and extensions for specific purposes. Vacuums are used when standing water is shallower than a couple of inches or the work area is challenging to access.

  • Specialty Tools

While the bulk of this workload is managed by combining vacuums and pumps from our supply, specific devices and machines help in particular extraction cases. Carpet wands, for example, are a powerful extraction machine for fibers of the carpet and the respective padding underneath.

Thorough Drying Solutions

It is crucial to provide efficient drying with any restoration project involving water damage. Thorough production of this recovery phase is a priority, as missing moisture pockets or mismanaging water exposure can result in more significant secondary effects like structural degradation or microbial development. This process rests on the placement and number of air movers deployed throughout the damaged area. Placed several feet apart, axial and centrifugal styles of air mover force airflow against damp surfaces for effective drying.

Will Your Home Need Build-Back Services?

Water damage repairs are a common need for many homes and businesses. Understanding the structural impact of moisture and standing water on your residence can show where these build-back services and reconstruction steps are necessary. Often, water impacts building elements where pooling moisture can remain for greater lengths of time, such as:

  • Around Plumbing
  • Wall Systems
  • Ceiling Assemblies
  • Flooring

Our professionals can mobilize fast with effective water removal, drying, and cleanup tools when addressing water damage in New Orleans homes. Trust our SERVPRO of The New Orleans Westbank team when your property suffers a loss to make it "Like it never even happened." Call now at (504) 348-7526.
