Don't let water damages blindside you

When calling a restoration company when you experience a water loss, the most important detail you need to know is the amount of time the structure has remained abnormally wet. If you don't know the exact time, that is okay. Give us your best guess. With that information, we can determine how quickly the damage needs to be responded to.

Restoration Process

The goal of the restoration process is to bring an abnormally wet and potentially damaged structure back to its preloss condition in the most economical and efficient manner as possible.

In the beginning of the process your SERVPRO professional must identify all affected materials. Next comes documenting what type of materials are affected. Affected Materials are then evaluated against three criteria to determine if they should be restored or replaced.

What we take into account:

  •  Degree of contamination
  •  Damage to item
  •  Cost of restoration verses cost of replacement

Once material has been identified and the SERVPRO of Brookhaven, McComb & Columbia professionals has decided what needs to be dried and what needs to be replaced, they will then measure the Temperature/Humidity for drying analysis.


We remove as much water as possible from the affected area.

Don't worry about your furniture- it will be moved and blocked as necessary. It may be necessary to remove carpet pad to protect the subfloor and speed the drying process.

The carpet will be checked for restorability, delamination and mold growth.
Sometimes it is also necessary to include the application of a EPA- registered disinfectant.


Drying equipment such as commercial dehumidifiers and commercial air movers may be used to dry the property. The purpose of the equipment is to remove excess moisture and bring the relative humidity levels back down to normal.

The equipment is then left running for approximately three days until all affected material left in the home are at or below a goal level set by your IICRC certified SERVPRO professional.

Then What?

Throughout the drying process you can expect the Technician to visit the home daily to monitor the progress of the material and to adjust equipment as necessary.

Once our SERVPRO of Brookhaven, McComb & Columbia professionals has deemed the structure is dry, the process of putting the home back together is now ready to begin. Soon your home will be back to normal and it will be ”Like it never even happened.”
