With our drying chamber and document restoration processes, important records and data and other valuable documents can be salvaged if damaged during a water loss.

Fast response is the single most critical factor in restoring water-damaged materials.The longer wanter and moisture sit in your property means more time for materials to soak up water and break down material structure. 

Materials like sheetrock and installation act like a sponge and hold soak up water and bacteria. The longer that sheetrock, installation sit the less likely they are to be able to be dried in place. 

Carpet and Pad also act like a huge sponge and can take a long time to dry out. If you experience storm or flood damage to your home or business, call SERVPRO of North Portland/ West Hawthorne. 

We have crews of trained technicians who are on call 24/7, 365 to respond when damage strikes your property.
