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.

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.

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

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent 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.
