What Does Water Damage Assessment Entail?

Any recovery process begins with a thorough assessment of the damage. Assessing simply means looking over the situation, identifying any immediate issues and determining what steps will be necessary to achieve complete recovery and restoration. It may seem like a very straightforward step, but it can be the most crucial when you’re dealing with an emergency.

The first step in assessment is identifying the source of the water and taking immediate steps to stop it

The sooner you can stop the flow, the better your chances of preventing serious damage to the affected room and any adjacent areas.

It’s also critical to check the water and determine its level of contamination because that can dictate the specific approach necessary during cleanup.

Water can have several categories of contamination based on the level of severity, ranging from category 1, which is considered “clean” water to category 3, which may contain serious biohazards like bacteria. Providing water damage assessment Durango can rely on, SERVPRO technicians are trained to identify the level of severity and follow the industry standards for safety.

Finally, we’ll survey the extent of the damage and look for any other safety hazards, including the presence of asbestos or lead and we’ll move any furniture or other items to protect them from harm and block carpeting and floors from rust or staining.
