Water Damage Repair In Savannah

Here is a brief rundown on how the water damage repair process works:


With 24/7 emergency services, Harper Special Services will arrive as quickly as possible to address the situation. Our trained personnel will assess your property to determine where the source of the water is coming from and get it stopped. With the use of the latest technology and best equipment in the industry, our experts can evaluate the extent of damage and begin making a plan for the cleanup and repair process. The sooner we can get to work, the less damage your property will sustain.  

Extraction and Drying

The most important step after water damage has occurred is to remove the water and dry everything out. The longer water sits untreated, the more likely additional damage may occur (including mold growth).  This part may seem overwhelming, but don’t worry - that is what your restoration crew is here for. By using professional-grade shop vacuums, commercial air movers, and dehumidifiers, we can get your home and belongings thoroughly dried. Sometimes a carpet will need to be lifted up, or parts of drywall may need to be removed in order to make sure all the moisture is dried. The entire drying process is monitored and regulated by technicians with extensive training in water damage cleanup and will make sure all the water is removed and dried from the floors, to the walls, and the ceiling.


Once all the water is removed and your home is completely dry, it is time for repair or reconstruction. Do not be alarmed if areas of your home need repaired or replaced. We are a fully licensed company, meaning we can provide you with topwater repair services in Savannah. We can repair damaged drywall, paint, cabinets, flooring, (you get the picture).  If areas of your property have received damaged beyond repair, we can reconstruct what was lost all the way to completion. Our water damage repair experts are some of the best in the area and will return your home to how it was before the water damage happened. 


Once all the water damage has been cleaned up from your home, and it has been returned to its original state, you can rest assured that you have been taken care of quickly, effectively, and satisfactorily. We understand the stress and chaos that follows water damage, and that is why we are there to take the water damage repair into our own hands.
