Whether you actively think about it or not, water is an essential part of a smoothly functioning household. We need it to wash clothes and dishes, make food and even give the family car a thorough washing in the driveway.

While we need water to help us get through our days, it also has the potential to cause significant issues and damages if an accident or damage occurs to your home. In addition to regular everyday mishaps, the flooding issues in Sumter County have already contributed to some water issues this year across the area.

Preparing for disasters can help you avoid certain water damage situations, but avoiding water damage altogether just isn’t possible at times. Our SERVPRO of Sumter team explains more below about water damage and how we can help dry out your space.

The Drying Process

Controlling water damage is all about your timing. The faster you identify the problem and the faster you move to dry up the water, the better chance you have of avoiding extensive or lasting damages. Locating the source of the leak is a good first place to start.

If the leak is coming from an appliance or pipe malfunction, turn off the water valve to stop the flow of water. If the leak is caused by damage to your roof or a situation with Mother Nature, you may just have to wait until the storm or threat has passed before evaluating your situation.

Remember, walking through standing water is never advised. This is especially true inside your home as electrical wires or electricity can make the water dangerous or even deadly.

Once you have taken these measures to protect your home and your family, give SERVPRO of Sumter a call. Our team is here 24/7, and we will jump into action for you right away.

Our Drying and Repair Plan

While we are chatting about your current situation, take some photos of the affected area. This not only helps us form our recovery plan for you, but it also helps the insurance claim process much smoother if there is evidence of the disaster.

Once we have our plan ready, we will head your direction! Our team will simultaneously work on drying up the water with our air movers and blowers as well as locating and stopping the leak. We will also ensure that the affected space is sanitized and deodorized before we are done.

Now that your space is dry, we can tackle the repairs! We are trained to handle everything from minor repairs to full reconstructions and rebuilds of rooms or levels of your home.

It doesn’t take much water at all to cause problems. If you discover even an inch of water or a water spot near your ceiling, call SERVPRO of Sumer right away to avoid long-term issues and more costly damages.
