Fast Action is Needed to Mitigate Loss After Water Damage in Seattle Homes

Many of the homes in the greater Seattle area feature finished basements. While this serves as a recreational area or a space for added bedrooms, it also houses vital appliances like the water heater. When unexpected water damage occurs at this lower level, our professionals must act quickly to mitigate loss and protect sensitive building materials and contents.

Safety Hazard and Damage Inspections 

Flooding situations that require water restoration in Seattle homes can also produce several unsafe conditions for responding technicians. We must assess these safety risks and hazards as the restoration process begins. Standing water, for example, can be impacted by live electricity. Our production manager assesses damage and threats to get mitigation and restoration started as soon as possible.

Water Removal Services and Mitigation

Removing water pooled on the surface of the flooring and other materials can be a challenge. We have multiple extraction units and approaches to eliminate standing water that could threaten the rest of the house. In the lower level of your home, extractors with a longer lead are necessary. Beyond truck mount units, we can also utilize portable solutions like:

  • Wet Vacuums
  • Light Wands
  • Squeegee Wands
  • Weighted Extractors

Cleaning Exposed Contents and Furniture

One of the mitigation stages our professionals can undertake involves protecting the contents and personal belongings that matter most to you. While some of these possessions can be cleaned and restored on-site, others require our pack-out process for restoration at our nearby SERVPRO facility.

Pipe bursts and leaks can lead to unexpected flooding in the basement of your home. Our SERVPRO of Seattle Northeast team can help with a fast mitigation response. Contact us today at (206) 362-9295.
