SERVPRO Wants Canoga Park Residents to Know Water Removal is Just One Step in the Mitigation and Restoration Process

Having a water spillage event in your Canoga Park home means you need skilled water restoration technicians (WRT). SERVPRO takes pride in rapid response and proven methods so that we can help area residents and business owners with mitigation, removal, and restoration for any water-related incident.

Once you call us for water mitigation in Canoga Park, water removal is the first vital step following the assessment. We must extract water from your home while considering the migration path to stop traveling moisture in its tracks. We use powerful extractors and pumps to execute water removal services, including careful attention paid to hard flooring, carpeting, and rugs.

However, we want you to know that water removal is just one aspect of water damage restoration. To successfully mitigate the damage, we must also dry and clean your home to restore relative humidity, eliminate the possibility of secondary damage, and keep mold and mildew from developing. Consider the following:

  • Our technicians must check beneath and inside wooden flooring to ensure no water has been allowed to pool. Failing to do so could lead to warping, cupping, or buckling the materials.
  • Our technicians must check inside walls to ensure no internal water damage, including saturation of drywall and moisture pooling behind baseboards.
  • Our technicians must check other areas like drapes, furnishings, and carpeting for any damp spots. These can all be prime locations for mold development should moisture be allowed to linger.

During our water mitigation and restoration process, SERVPRO’s IICRC-certified technicians take regular readings and adjust our drying and dehumidification equipment accordingly so that we can achieve our goals. Once everything is dry and restored, all surfaces get cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized to ensure your interior gets left “Like it never even happened.”
