Water Restoration Process
STEP 1: Immediate Response
The importance of a timely response to any water damage is necessary to prevent progressive material damage, amplification of microorganisms and to minimize potential adverse health affects. When a flood occurs, TIME is the enemy. More time.more damage. The mitigation process is designed to lessen the effect of the loss. We will make sure the source of the water loss is stopped, the water is extracted, and personal items are removed to a secure, dry area.
STEP 2: Structural Drying
New developed, specialized drying equipment is used to dry quickly. Turbo air movers are used to cause evaporation and low grain dehumidifiers are used to remove the evaporated water from the air. Penetrating, non-penetrating moisture detectors and thermo-hygrometers are used to track moisture content in a building and aid in determining what equipment is used and for how long. Expect a 2-3 day dry time for normal circumstances. Additional time may be required for bound water situations.
STEP 3: Structural Restoration
Now that you are dried and verified, it’s time to put your building back together. Depending on your circumstances, one or more of the following procedures may be required.
- structural repairs such as sheet rock repairs, baseboard or trim replacement, painting and so on
- pad replacement and carpet re-installation
- carpet replacement
- furniture and contents replace to original location
- final steam cleaning, disinfecting, and deodorization
