Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
SERVPRO of NE Hillsborough County/Plant City is committed to ensuring that your needs are met as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Every response to a water damage call begins with a detailed inspection your home or business to assess the extent of the damage and identify the source if it is unknown. In this process, our highly trained teams are looking to get a better idea of the scope of the disaster in order to plot the best path forward and determine the appropriate steps of action. Our employees understand the stress that can accompany a disaster, so we work tirelessly to reduce as much stress as possible.
Identify and Stop the Water Source
We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.

- Category 3: "Black Water"
Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises
