Having a Water Damage Emergency in Stockton?

Having a pipe burst resulting in water damage is a fairly common occurrence. Often a pipe can burst in the bathroom or kitchen where your family frequently uses water. Many people do not realize that plumbing failures happen even when not living in a colder climate. Rust, hard water, and excess water pressure can all result in a mishap.

If you find your home with water damage in Stockton, the specialists at SERVPRO are ready to help you with everything you need to restore your home. If a pipe breaks in the bathroom or kitchen wall, it's not always as simple as cleaning up the area and replacing the drywall if necessary. There are several more steps to restoration to ensure there are no issues such as foul odors or mold infestations.

The SERVPRO team conducts a complete damage assessment, including using state of the art moisture detection devices to locate all areas of water migration within the residence. The initial scoping of the perceived water damaged area by a project manager or crew chief is an essential step in the mitigation and agreement to treat process. In cases where the water spill in the home comes from a toilet back up, the technicians may test the water to determine the nature of the contaminants. Black or gray water indicates a contaminant, while clear water does not. Spillage from a cracked or overflowing holding tank is typically clean water. Water from the bowl that is urine-filled, gray water. Any solid waste backup is always considered black water.

We remove the water from the damaged area using our industrial-grade extractors while preserving any nearby furniture and personal items. We use both truck-mounted and portable extractors to handle large-scale water loss situations. SERVPRO technicians do multiple passes to extract as much water as possible to lessen the drying time.

The technicians set up heavy duty dehumidifiers to pull away the moisture from surfaces resulting in progressively drier air circulated in the room.  Technicians set drying goals and monitor the progress to ensure indoor humidity levels are below 50%, so mold infestations are not an issue. After drying, they check the premises to ensure no residual moisture remains and move on to the final step.

We clean and deodorize any damaged items using our specialized cleaning solutions. In some cases, stubborn musty water odors require elimination using different applications such as thermal foggers or deodorizing beads. We also repair the damage by restoring the affected areas. Typically, we manage the complete restoration ourselves as evidenced by General Contractor License #: 937457.
