Flames will burn all that they can in the time before they are extinguished; from woodwork, windows, furniture to clothes, valuables, and food it will consume it all if it can. Sometimes fires can be small but the smell of smoke just permiates throughout the building. Then there can be the impact left by water used to extinguish the fire.

When there is too much water, the first step is water removal. SERVPRO in Santa Clarita knows how to manage this like professionals.

Step one in the water damage process is to stop more water from entering the scene.

Trucks are on standby and gas-powered pumps pump water out of there at an efficient and impressive rate.
Next in the process is to treat the infected areas. With water lingering can come mildew, fungi, and or bacteria growth. In order to put a halt to this it is best to treat the areas so that no more harmful damage can be done. The last main part of the water damage process is to dry! Dry what was wet and get it dry as quick as possible. High-speed fans and dehumidifiers help this process right-along.
