Why SERVPRO Monitors Your Kansas City Water Damage Remediation Closely 

Although it would be a relief after the stress of coming to terms with your Kansas City water loss, most wet structures and contents take more than a day or two to dry out completely. Unlike other service calls, the time frame for recovery from a water emergency is dependent on much more than the skills of our technicians. Our intentional balance of speed with the restoration industry's best practice monitoring is why we complete jobs with confidence. 

Periodic Monitoring Is Best Practice 

Every Kansas City water damage project is unique, and periodic monitoring must follow an individualized assessment. Good reasons exist for following the progress of your water cleanup, but the implementation can feel intrusive. Monitoring is essential to a successful outcome, why we build it into the overall plan for each water damage project. 

Reasons for Job Monitoring 

Four primary rationales exist for why SERVPRO promotes regular review of your water damage recovery

Ensuring the Structure is Moving Toward Drying Goals 

Although we are patient, we must be realistic about the progress made. If drying takes too long, your home risks exacerbation of primary and the risk of secondary water damage. Monitoring allows us the notice needed to adjust our approach for a faster result. 

Reassuring that the Equipment Used Continues to Work Safely and Properly 

The up to date equipment we use for water damage remediation must be operating as intended to achieve the drying goals. Checking to see if the machines are on and running as expected is the key to project planning fidelity.  

Providing Updates for the Homeowner 

The road from soaked to dry can be a long and disruptive one for you as a homeowner. Checking in with the homeowner bolsters confidence that progress is occurring and reinforces the feeling of partnership we strive to develop. 

Documenting the Process 

Monitoring reports ensure that training and research-based practices guide the progress of the project. Questions from insurers or other contractors answer more easily with consistently gathered data.  

Our desire to avoid future problems and liability is why SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa regularly monitors water damage drying progress. Call us at (913) 782-4693 to begin the process of restoring your water damaged home to "Like it never even happened."
