The Power of Infrared Imagery

Water damage jobs can be tricky. It isn't always clear where the unwanted water is coming from. Infrared camera technology can help identify and lead our trained technicians to the source. By being able to scan large areas quickly, we can find thin veins of water that can direct us to the point of intrusion. It also informs us where to target our drying and dehumidification equipment, so property owners can get back into their spaces as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Warning vs. Watch

Do you know the difference between a severe weather watch vs. a warning?

Watch: conditions are favorable for severe weather and it is possible. Remain alert for possible further warnings.

Warning: severe weather has been spotted or indicated by radar. Take cover.

Water Damage Restoration

When your Shenandoah Valley home or business has water damage from flooding or leaks, we have the expertise and equipment to properly restore your property. The water removal and water cleanup process is completed by our highly-trained technicians who will document the drying process. This validates that your property has been dried properly and thoroughly.

Leaking Pipes May Cause Major Water Damage

Shenandoah Valley residents barely think about the amount of pressure in their home's pipes except when it seems too low in the shower or kitchen sink. Opening up the valve might solve this problem, but at the same time, it can create a real disaster.

Increasing the pressure can lead to broken pipes in your house, followed by water damage to the area. SERVPRO can send IICRC-certified technicians to your home after such a disaster and get things dry quickly. This can keep water damage from becoming a reality for you. Water damage can affect almost anything.

Hurricanes and flooding conditions

SERVPRO stays on call to always be of assistance if a hurricane brings flooding conditions or if there is a flood that results from any other numerous weather conditions.  Remember "Safety First"  for both yourself and for those responding to help.

Water Extraction Through Carpet

SERVPRO of Rockingham and Augusta Counties uses specialized drying equipment to get the job done quickly and efficiently. One of those tools in an extraction wand. The wand is like a really powerful vacuum sucking water out of almost any material like concrete, hardwood, vinyl, and carpet like in the photo above. The clear opening on the top allows the technicians to see the water flowing from the carpet into the extractor. The wand allows our crews to save time to get your home or business back up and running. To learn about more of our specialized equipment give us a call at 540-433-6100. 

Checking Moisture In The Wood

After the water removal step, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are still wet to the touch. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage.
