There is never a good time to sustain water damage, but it is important to quickly take actions for restoration even though it is an overwhelming scenario.
To help you deal with the aftermath, we are here at any hour to set our six-step process for water damage restoration in motion.
6 Steps to Water Damage Restoration
1. Initial Emergency Contact
Because disasters never stick to a schedule, you can call us at any hour to set the water damage restoration process in motion. We will discuss the damage with you over the phone to set a response plan in motion and dispatch our technicians to you as quickly as we can.
2. Inspection and Damage Assessment
Once we arrive on the scene of the damage, we will first make sure the area is safe and turn off any water flow that might be contributing to the damages. From there, a complete inspection will be completed and a restoration plan will be drafted and reviewed with you.
3. Moisture Extraction
We always move to extract moisture as quickly as possible, as this is the best method for preventing excessive damages. We have equipment that can pump out hundreds of gallons of water at a time, so there is no job that is too large for us to handle.
4. Dehumidifying and Drying
After the majority of standing water has been removed, we can bring in our dehumidifiers and dryers to further speed the process along. These will help remove moisture absorbed by your home’s porous surfaces and stop mold from causing even more damage to your belongings and home.
5. Cleaning Belongings
It is important to thoroughly clean items that have come into contact with excess moisture to keep them in good (and safe) condition. We will thoroughly clean all impacted items and surfaces in your home which will prevent deterioration and the development of odors.
6. Restoration and Repair
We want you to have a home or office that is restored fully to the condition it was in before the water damage occurred, which is why we also handle repair work as part of our restoration. From installing new carpets to painting over drywall patches, we make sure that you are fully set up with a complete restoration before we leave.
If your home has been water-damaged, you can count on us to help. Call us 24⁄7 to get the process started.
