Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Every water loss is different and SERVPRO of Johnston County is prepared to handle them all. When responding to a water damage emergency of any size, we begin with a detailed inspection of your home or business, including a damage assessment. After our highly trained estimator has been able to conduct a full assessment of the damages to your home or business, they are able to determine the preliminary scope of the damage so that we can develop an appropriate plan of action. Once a scope of work has been created, we are able to accurately and promptly have our crews begin the necessary work for your emergency.
Identify and Stop the Water Source
We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.
- Stop the Source
- Check for Contaminated Water
Identify the Type of Water
We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure our professionals restore your property based on industry guidelines. The level of contamination of the water will affect the specific restoration processes we use.
- Category 1: "Clean Water"
- Category 2: "Gray Water"
- Category 3: "Black Water"
Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises
We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident. If there are any safety issues like lead or asbestos, please bring them to our attention.
