ServiceMaster by ARTec provides Water Damage Restoration in Clifton Heights, West Chester, PA and surrounding areas

In water damage situations, water will typically spread out and flow toward substructures and lower floors. Porous materials, such as wood, sheetrock or other common building materials, will also soak up the water. This can result in discoloration, swelling, broken adhesive bonds, delamination (flooring separation), warping and overall breakdown of the building materials that make up your home.

The more time that elapses before treatment, the greater the water damage. Even if the water evaporates unassisted, it can cause damage to ceilings, walls and contents.

ServiceMaster is a highly reputable, licensed, insured and endorsed water damage service provider. In addition to our years of experience, our qualified technicians have completed advanced training in water damage restoration, dehumidification systems, mold removal and corrosion control.

Understanding The Drying Process

ServiceMaster by ARTec will restore your property as quickly and efficiently as possible. The drying and restoration may require up to three phases before completion:

PHASE 1: Emergency Service & Site Inspection

A ServiceMaster trained technician will begin by determining if your carpet is salvageable and if the carpet can be dried in place. If so, we will extract as much water as possible. Some flooring may need to be removed to expedite the drying process. Technicians will place our specialty equipment and monitor the temperature and humidity to ensure proper drying.

PHASE 2: Reinstallation/Cleaning

When the drying is complete, carpet reinstallation can begin.  Reinstallation includes replacing padding if it was removed, restretching, reattaching the tack strip, seam repair and threshold repair and /or replacement. After the reinstallation, carpet is cleaned and deodorized. During this phase, any upholstery or other damaged furnishings will be cleaned.

PHASE 3: Structural Repairs

If applicable, after the drying process is complete, structural damage is assessed and the repair phase can begin. At this time, drywall, ceilings and floors will be repaired. If carpet cannot be salvaged, new carpet and pad will be installed. It may be appropriate to complete structural repairs before reinstallation and cleaning.
