Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Yakima, WA

In a city of nearly 100,000 and the county seat of Yakima County, Yakima homes and businesses see their share of water damage and flooding emergencies. From the historic downtown to the massive training facility for the US Army, we have skilled water restoration professionals to help.

Mitigating Water Damage in Yakima Homes

The earliest actions our professionals take to mitigate loss can focus first on removing standing water. Burst pipes, flooding, and leaks can all leave varying depths of pooling in the house. Our inventory has extraction devices to help, including wet vacuums and submersible pumps. We must also overcome the threats like sagging materials or wet contents. Early actions focus on:

  • surface moisture removal
  • extraction
  • flood restoration
  • water cleanup
  • carpet cleaning

Thorough Drying for Your Residence

Though water removal services are a significant portion of the early actions SERVPRO professionals take when addressing immediate concerns for your home, drying is the next logical step. We have hundreds of air movers and dehumidifiers to evaporate surface water and capture this humidity from the environment. 

Should Water Damage Repairs Occur in Yakima?

Repairs and reconstruction are not always required after water and flood damage, but structural deterioration and sagging construction elements can exist. We have a general contractor license to complete this work when build-back services are necessary. We can seamlessly transition from drying to reconstruction.

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.

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
