How SERVPRO Can Restore Your Water Damaged Home in Cape Coral

After your residential property in Cape Coral has been subjected to water damage, obtaining professional restoration service is very important. Learn more about what the water restoration process entails and how to properly execute it by reviewing the short guide provided below:

The IICRC and the RIA

There are no government regulations in America dictating rules and regulations for water damage restoration. The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) and the RIA (Restoration Industry Association) have outlined standards of care that can be used for guidelines and advice. In most cases, companies like SERVPRO use the IICRC's set of procedural standards. These standards are referred to as the S500. The IICRC S500 offers practical standards for use during the water damage restoration process. However, the standards do not attempt to teach people comprehensive procedures for water damage restoration. Individuals and companies who utilize the S500 must be aware of contemporary technological standards and must also abide by all regulations and procedures by local, state, and federal laws. Some of the rules and regulations can be found below:

Loss Assessment and Evaluation

The loss assessment and evaluation process is most effectively completed by a trained water damage restoration technician. A SERVPRO expert will utilize the Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) form. This technician will document all of the personal possessions and valuable materials affected by water damage. This CCIS document will aid you in your dealings with your insurance company concerning your Cape Coral home.

Water Damage Services

The wide range of services offered by the water damage specialist will be customized to get your property back in order. One such service is the use of water sensing equipment to inspect areas of the home that have been affected by water damage. Tools and equipment used for this purpose include probes and infrared equipment. After the inspection is complete, the water remediation specialists will then dry your home and sanitize the cross contaminated areas.These regions of the home would also be deodorized. Throughout the cleaning process, the remediation specialist will use equipment such as dehumidifiers, air scrubbers, air movers, and wood-floor drying systems to optimize the restoration process. Moisture meters measure specific water content in affected items.The proliferation of mold will be minimized by the above steps.

Monitoring

Even after the entire process of water damage restoration is completed, an expert will visit for a follow-up inspection. Your property will be monitored for moisture content, humidity, and temperature of the treated areas. If you have any questions during the monitoring process, the SERVPRO professionals will be glad to answer them.

Final Inspection and Completion

Once the moisture content, humidity, and temperature are within the metrics industry standards, the remediation specialists will remove water damage equipment from your property in Cape Coral.
