Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Germantown, MD

As one of the largest cities in Maryland, Germantown is an active community from the Lotte Plaza Market to Montgomery College. With water damage threats being the most common callout for our SERVPRO team, we seek to rapidly help any of the more than 91,000 that call Germantown home. Our experienced professionals can mitigate damages with our fast response.   

Are Water Removal Services Efficient in Germantown Properties?  

One of the initial mitigation actions that our team can take to help with water damage is to remove surface pooling. Standing water is an immediate threat to porous materials like hardwood, drywall, and carpeting. The longer exposure occurs, the less salvageable these elements become. We have effective extraction tools to help fast.  

Water Damage Cleaning for Germantown Structures 

The mitigation and restoration process collectively uses dozens of tools in our recovery inventory. Cleaning and restoration of items and contents can be an effective use of our combined water restoration approach, which can include:

  • water damage repairs
  • flood removal
  • water cleanup
  • moisture monitoring
  • antimicrobial treatments

The Tools Necessary for Effective Water Cleanup in Germantown Homes 

From water removal to efficient drying or moisture management, several machines and devices are needed from stocked Green Fleet vehicles on the scene. We have hundreds of air movers and dehumidifiers to position for maximum drying efficiency in the house.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet or may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
