Proof That Contacting SERVPRO After Damage Can Help Mitigate the Situation

As a locally owned and operated restoration team that has been serving the area since 2006, we have grown into a trusted and reputable name when disasters strike Point Pleasant homes and businesses. Our large loss recovery team has managed substantial loss events in commercial properties like restaurants, schools, and hospitals. As a full-service provider of both restoration services and reconstruction through our in-house contractors, we can ultimately save customers time and money on the recovery that their property needs.


It might not be easy for homeowners to determine the extent of water damage in their Point Pleasant residences. With hundreds of causes for water emergencies, the severity and spread of the damage can change from one house to another. Preliminary assessments can determine the extent of the surface damage and provide an accurate evaluation of exposed contents and structural elements throughout your home. Documentation can be recorded through our exclusive SERVPRO DryBook technology and software, which can ensure that all parties involved, including our field technicians and the insurance provider for the homeowner, are actively aware of mitigation progress and the tasks that still need to get performed.

What Mitigation Solutions Do Professionals Use?

Mitigation is a phase exclusively designed to save customers time and money by reducing the property's overall loss. When this comes to your Point Pleasant home or business, mitigation is one of the most critical stages of recovery. While this general term can describe multiple actions restoration professionals take upon arrival, with water loss incidents, it can often indicate specific tasks:

  • Extraction
  • Controlled Demolition
  • Content Cleaning and Management

Is Rebuilding Necessary After Drying?

With how widespread water loss incidents can become, especially when migrating water pushes beyond the surface material into structural cavities and subflooring, build back and repairs are often necessary. We have contractors on our roster capable of handling both the required immediate repairs and the full reconstruction of discarded materials. We can make water loss incidents "Like it never even happened," for your Point Pleasant home.


When fire damages affect your Point Pleasant home or office, it is critical for professional restoration technicians like ours to respond quickly to this disaster. While chasing fires can often have a negative connotation, it is a practice we utilize to ready our team for emergencies occurring in the communities that we serve. With our relationship with many local insurance companies and significant providers who call on our experience to help, readiness for fire recovery involves multiple factors:

  • Pre-stocked trailers
  • Available technicians
  • 24/7 operation
  • Emergency experience

What Immediate Tasks Can Prevent Greater Loss?

Mitigation and emergency services are also substantial when looking to reduce the spread and severity of fire loss effects. There are multiple steps that our professionals can take in your Point Pleasant property beginning as soon as we arrive. From fire debris removal and air quality control through surface cleaning to remove smoke residues and other threats, we have skilled professionals 24/7.

What Are the Final Stages of Fire Recovery?

Over the years that we have been serving the area, many have looked to our SERVPRO team to provide both restoration and reconstruction after structure fires affecting Point Pleasant buildings and homes. As pressing of a need as reconstruction and repair might be after a fire, a restoration professional must also address lingering effects such as embedded odors in structural elements that are not getting replaced. We have multiple tools for removing odors successfully, and this process can be even more efficient through practices like controlled demolition and reconstruction.


As you might suspect, our restoration professionals' success in commercial properties in the Point Pleasant area and beyond hinges on our fast response. Every loss incident has a finite timeline for restoration and recovery before protecting construction materials and contents becomes impossible. This speedy response can become even more pressing in smaller shops or warehouses where stored articles and wares can become heavily damaged by water and flood disasters.

What Cleaning Practices Are Standard for Commercial Properties?

Cleaning up after one of these loss incidents can be crucial to returning your property to a preloss condition. The same fast response can ensure that your doors stay open or reopen quickly after the first notice of loss. Proper cleaning of your Point Pleasant commercial property involves many steps ranging from carpet cleaning and resurfacing through deodorization and air quality control. Each of these steps is not only vital in the restoration and recovery after disasters but also the revitalization of your property when wear and tear to the building become apparent. These actions include:

  • Carpet Cleaning
  • Surface Wipe Cleaning 
  • Deodorization 
  • Vandalism and Graffiti Removal
  • Air Quality Control

Severe storm events are nothing new to the Point Pleasant area. Because of this frequency, we have a fast response to begin deliberate emergency services. Some of these options include temporary construction, controlled demolition, and cleaning surfaces.

What is the Fastest Method of Extraction?

Flood losses could often be a typical result of water penetration after storm losses occur. When flooding begins in your Point Pleasant home, we fixate on the appropriate tools necessary to remove standing water. Some of the most frequently used removal tools include:

  • Submersible Pumps
  • Trash Pumps
  • Wet Vacuums
  • Carpet Wands
  • Weighted Extraction Machines

What Must Happen to Address Flood Damage?

The removal of flood effects after a disaster can be a considerable challenge, especially when the property needs services like muck out and extraction. Flood recovery, in general, describes a wide variety of actions taken, ranging from controlled demolition and debris removal through extensive cleaning and reconstruction.
