Water Damage Restoration and Flood Cleanup in Omaha, NE
ServiceMaster Restoration Services
Water damage is the most reoccurring problem for homes and buildings and if you do not react to minor water damage, it could end up being a major issue. Properties typically experience excess water due to natural conditions like rain and flooding, but internal problems including burst pipes, overflows, leaking appliances, and sewage backups can also cause water damage at any time. The reason excess water has the potential to cause major damage is because it becomes absorbed into most building materials, which allows it to spread further and deeper.
At ServiceMaster Restoration Services, we provide water damage restoration services to help homes and businesses in Omaha, NE that have experienced damage from flooding or excess water. Our technicians will immediately contain the spread of the water, assess the extent of the damage, and restore the damaged areas and materials with our water extraction and drying equipment.
Trusted Water Damage Restoration
Our technicians have dealt with many cases of water damage, from small leaks to indoor flooding. No matter how much water gets into your home or building, there is a chance that it can spread and penetrate deep enough to increase the risk of structural damage. Excess water and moisture also make mold growth more likely which will contribute to the structural damage and introduce the risk of mold related health effects.
We will immediately contain the spread of the excess water on arrival and do an inspection of your property to determine the depth of the damage. Our water extraction equipment can effectively remove standing water, and our advanced drying and dehumidification equipment will extract the moisture from furnishings, structural elements, and other objects that have been affected.
