SERVPRO Brings Professional Equipment for the Best Outcome After Water Damage in Kent Properties

After storms bring water damage to a Kent property, the first actions by a homeowner can determine the outcome. Bringing in a professional restoration services company can tip the scale in favor of the property owner for the best resolution to the situation.

There are several steps to flooding cleanup in a Kent property that the technicians from SERVPRO routinely perform. We can reposition and relocate affected by the water within the home or off site. The techs do not rely on visuals alone but use different types of detection equipment ranging from:

  • Moisture meters
  • Infrared cameras
  • Probes for use under flooring

A large portion of the cleanup post-flood within a home determines what building materials and furnishings need disposal and which have the potential for reuse through the professional restoration methods utilized by SERVPRO.

Before an item gets disposed of, SERVPRO technicians get the permission of either the homeowner or the adjuster. Obvious destroyed building materials like drywall are torn out. The techs document the article carefully with photos and a detailed written description confirming the water damage for use with insurance claims.

These actions take place in rapid succession as SERVPRO team members extract the water from the home. The method chosen by the techs depends on the amount of water within the structure. When standing water is the issue, the techs have access to submersible and truck-mounted pumps to clear the water out fast.

SERVPRO of Kent at (253) 850-1500 serves the local Kent area for all types and sizes of flooding cleanup. Our IICRC certified technicians are available 24/7 to come to properties and make the water damage, "Like it never even happened."
