8/14/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Equipment and technicians No matter when you make the call, we have technicians who can assist you.

Emergencies can take many shapes, and our team of professionals can help to steer your damaged property back to preloss condition. 

There are thousands of homes and businesses depending on us in the greater Raleigh area. We are a locally owned and operated facility, meaning that all of our technicians and administration professionals share these communities with you. We consider the help that we provide in your time of need the same as we would do for any of our neighbors. We are a full-service restoration and recovery team, meaning that along with experienced technicians to help with cleaning, extraction, and other restorative efforts, we also have a full team of residential and commercial contractors.

Water

There is often a proposed 48-hour window to restore and recover Raleigh homes and businesses after a water loss incident first begins. The challenge with this finite timeline is reducing the spread and migration of these loss effects so that greater areas of your property do not fall victim to saturation, structural deterioration, and other secondary effects like microbial growth. We strive to be fast to any emergency that threatens your home, and our readiness for these emergencies can preserve as much of this initial critical window as possible.

What Mitigation Steps Can Help After a Water Emergency? 

Mitigation is one of the hearts of restoring a water damaged Raleigh home. These initial steps taken shortly after our technicians first arrive on the scene work to stop the migration of water throughout the property and address present concerns such as standing water in the home. Some of the critical mitigation steps that we take include:

  • Extraction
  • Controlled Demolition
  • Content Management and Inventory Solutions

Is Reconstruction Necessary After Drying? 

The drying process can often be one of the most challenging elements of restoring at home after a water loss incident. Considering how far spread moisture can travel throughout your Raleigh residence or structure, it is not unlikely that some degree of repair or reconstruction might be necessary. Our contractors can help to identify weakened structural elements, discard these damaged materials, and replace them at the appropriate times.

Storm

With the varying degree of storm systems and winter weather effects that can damage homes and businesses throughout Raleigh, Zebulon, and other communities, we must be prepared for the physical damage the exteriors of these buildings can experience. An advantage of having residential and commercial contractors on our roster is that these professionals can mobilize along with our restoration technicians to provide real-time emergency services when necessary.

How Do You Efficiently Remove Standing Water? 

When structural breaches exist, flooding is not often far behind. One of the most significant obstacles with flood damage in Raleigh structures is standing water. This condition can absorb quickly into exposed flooring materials and wall systems, which can begin the deterioration process along with this saturation. Water removal is vital to protect these construction materials, and we use several machines for this:

  • Extractors 
  • Vacuums 
  • Drying Tools

Rebuilding and Cleaning After a Flood Loss 

Flooding can present substantial damage to the interior of your Raleigh property, which can often require the replacement of specific structural elements to return the structure to its original condition. Controlled demolition prepares areas for later reconstruction by removing compromised sheetrock, wood, and carpeting for replacement once mitigation steps complete.

Fire

We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and that's not just a slogan that can help win over some customers in Raleigh, Zebulon, or anywhere else that we serve. We understand that every moment that passes after you know about a disaster, the worse the effects and conditions in your property become. Because of this, we strive to stay ready for all of these emergencies with pre-stocked trailers and available technicians 24 hours a day.

What Can Our Team Do to Clean Up Immediately? 

Environmental and surface cleaning are vital efforts with fire damage recovery because the work area can be hazardous even after technicians arrive. This volatile environment is what makes DIY restoration such a risk. With the appropriate personal protective equipment and efficient machines and techniques, our SERVPRO team can help your Raleigh house be safer for the continued mitigation and restoration steps to come. These initial efforts to thoroughly clean the property include:

  • Surface Cleaning
  • Content Cleaning
  • Air Quality Control

What Restoration Steps Must Occur After a Fire? 

Soot removal can be a challenging effort for your fire-damaged Raleigh home. However, it is a necessary effort to reduce both health hazards, carcinogens, and acidic particles that can damage underlying materials. Many practices and products can address various types of smoke residues, including both wet and dry smokes, protein smoke, and even furnace puff backs. Addressing these concerns on surfaces involves numerous approaches, including soda blasting, emulsification, dissolving, and wipe cleaning with water-based chemical solvents.

Commercial 

Throughout Wake County, thousands of businesses depend on the fast and reliable response of our SERVPRO technicians whenever disasters strike. While many of these threats involve water and fire losses, we are prepared to handle even more challenging scenarios, including biohazard cleanup, air quality control, and flooding. Returning your Raleigh business to its original state is critical to get your doors open again to customers and expected profits.

What Solutions Keep Your Doors Open? 

It is always our priority to keep your doors open to allow your business to continue even in a limited capacity whenever possible. In many ways, this involves containment barriers and other equipment that can reduce cross-contamination while allowing our technicians to continually clean and restore your damaged Raleigh property.

What Products and Techniques Get Used to Clean Your Building Thoroughly?

Cleaning your Raleigh business does not always have to follow a disaster or emergency event. There are many instances, especially on the heels of a pandemic, where cleanliness and sanitary environments are more desirable than ever. Our program called Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned can provide a high level of efficiency in surface and content cleaning in high-traffic areas and wherever you deem attention necessary. This includes:

  • Applying Disinfectant
  • Surface Cleaning
  • Deodorization


Disasters can happen at any time, but our SERVPRO of East Raleigh / Zebulon team is always ready to help at (919) 250-0455.
