Quickly Remove this Unwanted Water

For Water Damage, Turn to SERVPRO

Water damage restoration is a process that involves restoring your property in Lakeland to its previous condition after it has been impacted by unwanted water. The cause may be from natural disasters like floods or hurricanes, from a leaky or burst pipe or the aftermath of a fire. Currently, there are no binding government regulations regarding how to complete the water damage restoration process. Nevertheless, the IICRC and RIA have standardized recommendations that a reputable water damage restoration company like SERVPRO would use during the implementation of a restoration process. Please read the brief overview of the coordination involved for the water damage restoration process.

Loss Assessment and Evaluation

When your home is impacted by water damage, this team of water remediation specialists from SERVPRO will assess the structural materials, furnishings, and personal belongings that were affected by the water damage. All items will be listed on the Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) form, a very professional feature of the SERVPRO assessment process. They will be categorized as salvageable, non-salvageable and questionable. The CCIS will aid your insurance adjuster in his assessment. This restoration company has coordinated contacts with over 300 insurance companies and property management companies. Upon receiving a work authorization to proceed with the water removal from your home in Lakeland, SERVPRO will immediately commence with the restoration.

The water removal specialists will then move forward by drying the structure utilizing pumps, vacuums, dehumidifiers and powerful air moving equipment. Moisture probes will be employed to assure that no water or moisture residue is present that may propagate the growth of mold.  Several different types of foggers can be used to destroy mold and to deodorize.


Once SERVPRO completes all restoration processes, following guidelines from the IICRC, they will return to monitor the moisture content, humidity, and temperature of the affected materials and walls. The company's professionals have your best interest in mind and will carefully finalize the inspection of your Lakeland home.
