AWARDS & CERTIFICATES

1. Removing excess water.

Regardless of the extent of water damage or the spot and source of the flooding, your first action should be to contain the flow. This can be very difficult if you do not know what water damage restoration supplies you need so it is advisable to call the professionals right away. When a pipe bursts or a toilet overflows or a washing machine hose springs a leak, having the water flow under control will help ensure that the damage can be contained and limited to just the affected area instead of spreading to multiple sections of your home.

Water damage restoration companies use professional water removal tools like vacuums and blowers to properly remove the floodwater from the site. When you can eliminate the water as soon as possible, you will prevent further damage to the structure of your home or commercial property. The longer the water sits the harder it becomes to clean up and dry from damage. This keeps you out of additional expenses and time-consuming repairs, like mold remediation.

2. Assessing the damage.

During a flooding disaster, water may damage most or all of the structure’s contents, including furniture, appliances, flooring, and other belongings. Before the actual restoration starts, we check for damaged contents to know the actual coverage of the restoration. We have to consider the fact that the damages may not be limited to the water intrusion alone. Because of this, we look at other items or parts of the house that may also be affected.

Not only is it important to be aware of water damage for your own home, but you should also be aware of the signs of structures that may have water damage. Depending on the extent of the damage to your home or business, you may require nothing more than minor repairs, or you may have to rebuild parts of your building. A damaged foundation causes serious safety issues in and around your home. Some common foundation issues associated with water damage include loose steps and cracks in your wall. The restoration professional will also check for wood rot, mold, and other problems caused by exposure to water.

3. Drying and cleaning the damaged areas.

Removing damaged materials during water damage restoration is one of the most important steps in the restoration process. The removal should be done properly to prevent any further damage to your home. There are some materials that you can still use after water damage restoration, while there are some that must be taken out and disposed of.

Removing excess moisture from a water-damaged location of any type is the key to a successful restoration. One of the most overlooked phases of water damage restoration is drying. Some people get so focused on removing carpet, padding, or anything else wet or soaked that they don’t pay attention to the fact that to completely rectify the damage, we need to dry WHILE cleaning. This can allow you to salvage items you might have otherwise thought were a total waste. Without proper drying and sanitizing, you may end up with mold and bacteria growth that will ruin your recovery efforts.

4. Restoring your home to its original condition.

When you have water damage to your home, the restoration process can be major or minor in scope. The scope of damage like this will depend on the type and duration of flooding. In some cases, a simple cleaning will suffice and then the drywall can be replaced. In other cases, it may be necessary to remove the flooring and replace it with new materials. Sometimes, when the damage is too much and the structural integrity of the house has been severely affected, the entire room may have to be rebuilt.

When deciding how much restoration to do and what to restore, it is essential to think about the long-term effects of the decision. If other factors contribute to the damage in the area — such as natural wear and tear or water infiltration issues — then you may have to consider repairing them as well to prevent future leaks.
