Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Germantown, MD

As one of the largest cities in Maryland, Germantown is an active community from the Lotte Plaza Market to Montgomery College. With water damage threats being the most common callout for our SERVPRO team, we seek to rapidly help any of the more than 91,000 that call Germantown home. Our experienced professionals can mitigate damages with our fast response.   

Are Water Removal Services Efficient in Germantown Properties?  

One of the initial mitigation actions that our team can take to help with water damage is to remove surface pooling. Standing water is an immediate threat to porous materials like hardwood, drywall, and carpeting. The longer exposure occurs, the less salvageable these elements become. We have effective extraction tools to help fast.  

Water Damage Cleaning for Germantown Structures 

The mitigation and restoration process collectively uses dozens of tools in our recovery inventory. Cleaning and restoration of items and contents can be an effective use of our combined water restoration approach, which can include:

  • water damage repairs
  • flood removal
  • water cleanup
  • moisture monitoring
  • antimicrobial treatments

The Tools Necessary for Effective Water Cleanup in Germantown Homes 

From water removal to efficient drying or moisture management, several machines and devices are needed from stocked Green Fleet vehicles on the scene. We have hundreds of air movers and dehumidifiers to position for maximum drying efficiency in the house.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
