Why SERVPRO Is a Premier Company for Water, Fire, Mold, and Commercial Recovery in Kansas City
Kansas City Property Owners Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Recovery Services
We are a preferred vendor for restoration services in the Kansas City area primarily because of our established track record of dependability and top-tier results. We know how important it is to recover a property quickly, and we can do this with integrity and professionalism. Part of this dedication to our customers comes with helping them through the traumas and stresses of loss recovery situations by explaining the process and answering whatever questions that they might have through any phase of mitigation or restoration.
Water Recovery Efforts
One contributing factor to the fast turnaround on many of our water loss recoveries in Kansas City homes is the thorough inspection, and job scoping that occurs before our team first fully arrives to begin restoration. Our project manager and crew chief can work with our customers and premier discovery devices to record the presence of moisture and standing water throughout the home. The better educated we are on the migration and severity of the damage, the more accurate and useful the restoration response from our team can become. Also, this discovery phase can identify the source of the water damage to ensure that you secure the right skilled professionals to help with repairs if necessary.
Extraction is not always a necessary component of water loss recovery, but when it is, we have dozens of high-efficiency water removal tools at our disposal. From the truck-mounted pumps in our fleet of vehicles to more common choices like the light wands and portable electric submersible pumps, we can help to remove pooling water conditions before we set our sights on thorough drying and structural assessment.
Apart from common implements like our air movers and refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifiers, we also have specialty drying equipment that can help us to address moisture and saturation of flooring materials, drywall, and even structural cavities above ceilings. No matter what your Kansas City home needs, our SERVPRO team can make it “Like it never even happened.”
Containment protocols help our SERVPRO professionals to quickly establish control in mold damage scenarios that can affect Kansas City homes. With how fast these organisms can spread throughout a residence, stopping this migration is critical to protecting a home and its occupants from worsening conditions. Setting up a barrier of this damaged zone with thick (6-mil) plastic poly sheeting allows our team to regulate air filtration, drying, and the flow of clean air into the area to reduce microbial threats.
When colonies have seated and spread through a Kansas City home, one of the challenging obstacles remediators must overcome is the musty odor these organisms emit. The noxious scent can penetrate soft materials like clothing, but also become embedded in drywall, carpeting, drapes, and more. We have numerous solutions that can work to reduce and eliminate these odor threats and airborne contaminants, including air scrubbers and thermal fogging machines.
Removing the physical colonies is also most effective within an established containment area, especially with the efforts like media blasting. Using compressed air, our SERVPRO Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) can eliminate colonies and reduce odors emitting from damaged surfaces without damaging the substrate of the material. This practice can help to reduce the need for tear-out and reconstruction in your Kansas City residence.
Fire Cleanup and Odor Control
Many homeowners might see fire losses as a confusing and stressful time, especially when they have to navigate the red tape and hoops of insurance claims. Because we are a preferred vendor for restoration services for area insurance providers, we have an understanding of what these companies need and expect when approving a damage claim after a fire. This knowledge saves you time and reduces potential fire damage to your Kansas City residence by getting work started more efficiently.
The removal of odors and present soot are priorities of our Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) when we first arrive at Kansas City residences and large commercial buildings. Both of these effects can be hazardous to those exposed in the right circumstances, so our SERVPRO team relies on our experienced cleaning technicians and restoration professionals to clean surfaces with the use of chemical sponges, agitative brushing to remove settled residues, and potent cleaning products. HEPA filtered vacuum cleaners are often the tool of choice for the initial removal of burnt residues.
Another area where we can help our customers through this devastating experience is with our content management practices. By determining your personal belongings that are at risk for further damage or irreparable ruin, we can make provisions to move these possessions to a safe location on-site or our nearby facility for focused cleaning and restoration. Fire damage in Kansas City homes can be widespread and devastating in some situations, leaving no choice but to use our warehouse as temporary and secured storage for items that could get recovered from the house.
Storm and Flooding
Storms are an unpredictable presence in the middle of the country, and we can contend with everything from tornadoes and hailstorms to torrential rainfall and excessive snowfall. No matter what season brings the severe weather events to Kansas City homes and businesses, we have a growing division of skilled professionals ready and willing to help.
Preparedness is a big part of restoring the properties impacted by severe weather in Kansas City, and for our SERVPRO team, that begins with ready trailers stocked at our facility. These units have our extraction and drying equipment loaded up, allowing us to address a common pressing threat after structural storm damage: flooding. From our continuous draw electric sump pumps with long lead hoses to our electric heaters, portable generators, and air movers for effective drying in these emergencies, our professionals can help.
Cleaning and decontamination are a focus that our team must have to truly make flood losses “Like it never even happened,” for Kansas City homes. Because contaminants can exist in natural flooding, we have a line of potent antimicrobial, biocides, and disinfectants to ensure that whatever structural elements remain after flooding are well protected from any continued bacterial or microbial threats.
