At SERVPRO, we pride ourselves on being water mitigation experts! Our professionals are trained, certified, and experienced in restoring water damage to any home or business. Our emergency services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

When you call SERVPRO of New Philadelphia County, your call will be answered by a customer service representative who will dispatch a water mitigation team. When our team arrives, they will assess the water damage and determine the best plan of attack to have your home or business looking “Like it never even happened.”

You may hear the words “water mitigation” frequently and you may be asking yourself, “what is water mitigation?” “Is it the same as cleaning up water?” 

Water mitigation is the prevention of further water damage by taking strict actions. It includes the removal of unsalvageable content and structural materials (dry wall, flooring, etc.), cleaning of the affected areas, application of disinfecting agents, drying, and deodorizing the structure. The SERVPRO team will collect and haul away any unwanted debris from the site.

The length of time it takes to properly mitigate the water at your property depends on the amount of damage the water has caused.

Advanced drying equipment and air sanitizers are left onsite to complete the water mitigation process. The equipment will be monitored by our technicians over a period of a few days as to the temperature, humidity, and moisture in the affected areas.

SERVPRO of New Philadelphia County can fully restore any water damage to your home or business. If you need our help or have any questions, do not hesitate to call us at (330) 556 4556
