How to Handle Every Damage Remediation Challenge in Wilmington With Ease Using These Tips
If Disaster Strikes Your Wilmington Home You Need To Call SERVPRO
As a restoration team that has been proudly serving Wilmington and the surrounding areas for nearly 30 years, we have learned from every project to become a prominent and respected name in the industry decades from when we first opened our doors. Our business has always had a family-feel, and that stems from multiple generations of the same family running operations. While we are an extension of a significant restoration brand in the country, we have never given up on our relationships and roots that have been the catalyst to our successes.
Much of what makes our water recovery department such a talented group is both the commitment to achieving the highest levels of education and training available for this nice of the restoration industry and the commitment of our team to invest in the cutting-edge equipment, instruments, and technology that can help our Wilmington customers. Even aspects like our initial inspection of a water-damaged property can happen more efficiently and thoroughly with the use of advanced tools like our infrared imagery and hygrometers.
Areas where standing water can get found must get addressed before other mitigation practices can begin in these areas. Our SERVPRO team has multiple choices with extraction tools, this decision depending on the severity of water damage in Wilmington homes and the location of standing water that must get removed. Sump pumps offer continuous discharge and can run on portable power solutions that our team provides should utility services become compromised.
Something unique to our brand is our documentation and methods of monitoring the drying process in a Wilmington home. The same instruments that get used during the initial inspection can also help to determine the success of our drying efforts, but the milestones reached and overall progress get logged to our DryBook software.
Identifying mold growth in your Wilmington home might not be as easy as many might believe. Without a distinct, clear cause for this organism to seat and thrive, some homes in the area likely contend with colonies and have no idea that they exist. This spreading organism can emit volatile organic compounds (VOC) that can cause detrimental health effects to those in your family that could get exposed. The concentration of these VOCs worsens the closer that a property owner gets to active colonization.
Preventing mold growth might not be possible for specific residents, especially those who do not realize that damp and moist areas of their Wilmington home exist. Our SERVPRO Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) have the training and expertise to perform a thorough inspection of the suspected areas for the presence of moisture. We utilize the same discovery devices for water damage assessments to identify likely areas where mold colonization could exist.
Despite how stressful these situations can be, mold damage in Wilmington homes still often gets pushed off for a more convenient time. As a team with decades of experience in this niche of the industry, we aim to help homeowners overcome these colonies and their damaging effects before demolition and reconstruction is the only feasible remediation solution left.
Fire loss incidents can be some of the most destructive and varied disasters that our SERVPRO professionals ever face. Fire damage in Wilmington homes and businesses can be a layered threat, requiring stages of restoration and recovery efforts to carefully navigate the situation to prevent it from getting worse. Among the chief concerns when the team first arrives is the assessment process. If it is safe to do so, we can perform this walkthrough with both the customer and the insurance provider to ensure that everyone knows what the property needs to return to preloss condition.
Homes and businesses alike are at the mercy of the most efficient methods of fire suppression and extinguishment. While firefighters can often cause structural damage and water damage on their own, so can sprinkler systems installed in your Wilmington property. As prepared as our team can become to address effects like odors, soot, smoke residue, air quality threats, and other risks, our Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) can mobilize to these affected homes as well to oversee the drying and extraction of water-damaged areas of the house.
It is our job to get your home ready for the next step in recovery, and with fire damage in Wilmington homes, this often means preparing for painting and reconstruction. Our priority is making this process as simple as we can on the customer, regardless of the mitigation and restoration work required. We can make it “Like it never even happened.”
We take it as a point of pride that we have the involvement we do in a large loss recovery team because this means that we can do more to help our Wilmington residents whenever disasters strike. In an area where severe weather can never stay ruled out, we contend with many of the destructive results of these events after the storm passes. Our disaster relief team is on call 24/7 with stocked trailers to address pressing threats like water damage and flooding.
We do not cut corners, and we seek to help anyone and everyone that needs us. That is why after some significant flooding situations and natural disasters, our SERVPRO team could take more than 24 hours to respond to the damage in your Wilmington home. Because of our focus on helping everyone who needs it, we can work as efficiently as possible to ensure that your property gets the attention and mitigation strategies it needs.
Because of our success in the realm of storm relief and flood recovery, we have been able to extend our services beyond our borders to help other states after natural disasters. To date, we have been to Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland, and Illinois. This same focus to help out other franchises short-staffed after catastrophes are the same relationships we construct to help out our home when another ugly weather event targets our Wilmington streets.
The choice of professional restorers is a big one, and many select our SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere team for our central location and commitment that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. Give us a call today at (302) 992-0104.
