Rely On SERVPRO For Efficient Water Cleanup

The extent to which a water event can cause damage to your Elkhorn home can be shocking. Water can cause great destruction to the building materials that make up the structure and finishes of your home. Fast and thorough water removal can halt or slow the harm, but requires the skilled technicians and advanced equipment we can offer to be properly remediated.

When a pipe bursts or an appliance fails in your Elkhorn home, water cleanup needs to happen right away. Most homeowners do not have access to, nor know how to operate the high-efficiency equipment necessary to get the water out of a residence quickly. A household shop vac cannot remove the vast amounts of water an appliance like a water heater or washer can flood throughout a home, especially if it takes a while for your to locate and turn off the supply line. Our vehicles carry commercial pumps and extractors for our crews to collect and dispose of significant quantities of water in a short time frame.  Responding quickly is important because the longer standing water remains in the structure, the more damage it will do.

When SERVPRO arrives after a water loss, our experienced crew chief uses training and experience to devise a plan to clean up and then dry out the water damage. Responding to water crises is one of our core services, so our crew reacts swiftly, but with attention to the details that makes every job unique. Cleaning up water within the first few hours reduces the risk of microbial growth that increases in potential and severity the longer the water remains.

When you hire SERVPRO to clean up a water loss, you can expect both removal of the moisture and professional structural drying. If you skip the drying step the chance of progressive water and secondary damage is high. Many building materials, including drywall, ceiling tiles, insulation, and flooring, to name a few, absorb water and then begin the process of deterioration fast. Materials swell and warp, losing their strength and developing odors and an unsightly appearance. Our ability to clean up the water and then use air movement, heat, and dehumidification to dry structural components means your home recovers from most of the water’s destructive power.

SERVPRO of Omaha Northwest should be your first call at (402) 800-2134 if you need fast, professional water cleanup. Let our experts respond with their skills, knowledge, and specialized equipment.
