Essential Processes That Control Water Damage

Yakima, WA, is a sizable city with a population of 96,578 known for its agriculture industry, especially apples and hops production. Within the city limits are several wineries and related businesses, including Adelia Wine Cellars, Kana Winery, Yakima Valley Vintners Yakima, and Wine Country Crushers Sports Club. Local museums tell the area's history, from Native Americans and pioneers to early business people. They include the Yakima Valley Museum, the McAllister Museum of Aviation, and the Central Washington Agricultural Museum. Local events include agricultural, trade, and sports like the Fresh Hop Ale Festival and Central Washington State Fair.

If an incident necessitates water damage restoration at your Yakima premises, it is essential to carry out the process comprehensively. Such a process requires a proper understanding of changes or effects water introduces in properties. SERVPRO® crews deeply understand moisture effects against utilities like HVAC, structural supports like frames, and floor materials like carpet.

Essential Restoration Steps

  • Drying moisture
  • Cleaning soiled areas
  • Testing utilities
  • Removing deteriorated materials

Identifying what needs fixing is essential, but correctly timing it is also crucial. For example, drying efforts may be futile or take too long if you have not removed wet insulation or drywall. SERVPRO technicians prioritize removing unsalvageable materials and cleaning before embarking on the drying steps.

Unlike structural components, utilities like HVAC and electrical systems may present unique restoration challenges. For example, assessing the level of damage takes more than observing wetness levels. Disassembly and evaluation of different components for moisture, rust, and other changes may be necessary. With assistance from SERVPRO professionals, opening up HVAC units to check for saturated materials, testing electrical components, and determining the state of ductwork is easy.

Preparing the worksite before water restoration is another essential step to guarantee comprehensive restoration. Clearing deteriorating ceilings, drywall, or insulation creates room for restoration processes. Our crews also set up staging areas for equipment and cleaning products for smooth workflow.
