How ServiceMaster Can Help
When we arrive at the sight of the water damaged property in Yankton, SD, we’ll do a survey to determine the amount of damage that has occurred. All of our technicians are highly skilled and will explain the process to you fully so you’ll understand each step in the process. We use only the most state-of-the-art equipment, and our restoration techniques follow the gold standard protocol of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC).

General Standards of Water Damage

Class 1: Minimal damage, losses confined, and no major damage to absorbent materials

Class 2: Major damage to flooring, absorbent materials (upholstery, carpeting, and padding)

Class 3: Water that originates from overhead and passes through ceilings. Major damage to flooring and absorbent materials

Class 4: Major structural damage. May include framing, drywall, masonry, concrete, and ground soil.

Once the classification is understood, drying of the structure and restoration can begin.


Four-Step Water Drying Process

Water Removal: We use different methods to extract the water. Some of these may include draining, pumping, vacuuming, or using materials to absorb the water.

Evaporation: Air dryers can be useful to remove water by changing it to vapor, which means the water may be able to be removed more quickly than conventional methods.

Dehumidification: Removing the humidity prevents further losses. The humid air can affect the structure of the home.

Temperature Control: No matter what the weather is outside, our technicians will keep the inside area affected at the right rate to expedite the drying process.

To return affected areas to their pre-loss condition, water damage restoration professionals should begin this four-step drying process as soon as possible. Our technicians understand the complexities of water damage in Yankton, SD, and have the experience and tools necessary to help. Contact us at (605) 665-7080.
