Rain storms can have their ups and downs. This year in the Portland Metropolitan area we got hit with various rain storms. Our IICRC certified crews are called out to assist with the water restoration 24/7. There are a few important steps to take before a professional comes to mitigate the water damage.
Promptly report your water loss to your local SERVPRO, have the experts deal with the weighty work. As the water restoration technicians are on their way, eliminating standing water after a storm is significant. If it is safe, you can do this by placing unused towels over the standing water.
Once your local SERVPRO arrives they will be able to use the proper equipment to extract water, clean up, and mitigate the damages. Our crews are trained to use a variety of water detection and water extraction equipment to ensure proper water removal.
