At SERVPRO® we specialize in water and fire damage restoration. If you have water damage in your house, here are the general steps they might take to treat and restore the affected areas:

1. **Emergency Contact:**
- Contact SERVPRO® as soon as possible to report the water damage. We have a 24/7 emergency response service.

2. **Inspection and Assessment:**
- Upon arrival, SERVPRO® professionals will inspect the property to assess the extent of the water damage and determine the best course of action.

3. **Water Removal:**
- The first step is to remove standing water from the affected areas. This may involve using powerful pumps and vacuums to extract water from floors, carpets, and other affected surfaces.

4. **Drying and Dehumidification:**
- After removing the visible water, SERVPRO® will use specialized equipment like industrial air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out the remaining moisture. This helps prevent mold growth and secondary damage.

5. **Cleaning and Sanitizing:**
- Once the area is dry, SERVPRO® will clean and sanitize the affected surfaces to eliminate any potential health hazards. This may involve using antimicrobial agents to prevent mold and other contaminants.

6. **Restoration and Repairs:**
- After the water damage is mitigated, SERVPRO® will work on restoring and repairing the affected areas. This may involve replacing damaged drywall, flooring, or other structural elements.

7. **Monitoring:**
- Throughout the process, SERVPRO® professionals will monitor the moisture levels to ensure that the affected areas are properly dried and there are no lingering issues.

8. **Documentation:**
- SERVPRO® will document the entire restoration process, including before-and-after photos and detailed notes. This documentation can be useful for insurance claims.

It's important to note that the specific steps taken may vary depending on the severity and nature of the water damage. Additionally, if the water damage is due to a larger disaster, such as a flood or storm, additional steps may be required.

If you're dealing with water damage, it's crucial to act quickly to minimize the potential for further damage and to increase the likelihood of a successful restoration. Always consult with professionals like SERVPRO® who have experience in water damage restoration.
