Step 1 - Emergency Contact

When you call, our representative will guide you through several questions that will help the SERVPRO of Canton Professional respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

Step 2 - Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

They carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

Step 3 - Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. The SERVPRO of Canton Professionals start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

Step 4 - Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, SERVPRO of Canton Professionals use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. They use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

Step 5 - Cleaning and Sanitizing

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

Step 6 - Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.

Ice Blasting Machine A storm caused the flooding in this home and caused mold to develop.

In this particular case, specialty equipment would be needed to remediate the mold in the basement of this home. SERVPRO of Canton was able to order an Ice Blasting Machine right away. The Ice Blasting Machine uses dry ice to remove the mold. Our technicians are trained on, not only the Ice Blasting Machine, but other types of specialty equipment as well. This is where we outperform our competition, most of the restoration companies in our area would subcontract this work out to another company, which adds time and extra cost to the bottom line. With our trained technicians we can do this type of work in house. Here at SERVPRO of Canton we see many different scenarios and no two jobs are alike! If you think you have a unique situation in your home or business, please call our office at 1-800-714-5341 and let us give you an estimate for your situation.
