No matter why you have water in your house, we have a proven track record of successful restoration. Although any specific job will have individual requirements, we approach all projects in a similar fashion. We undertake the same water damage restoration process-thus ensuring that we can bring your home back to its former glory.
The first thing we do on any call is to send a team out to provide emergency services to your property.
This team will take fast action to stop the source of the water; going as far as to turn off the water to the home if necessary.
If weather is the source of the problem, we will use tarps or will board-up an area to prevent further water intrusion.
We will also interrupt electrical power to the affected area in order to ensure your safety. Because electronic devices and electric appliances are particularly susceptible to water damage, we will quickly move them out of the danger area.
We will further move portable items, particularly those that might stain your carpet, to a dry location in the house. If needed, we will provide temporary storage space off-site and help you with packing and moving services.
Inspection and Assessment
While on site, our team will identify the type of water causing the problem and check for contamination. We look for other safety concerns, like asbestos, as well.
We will use hygrometers and other moisture detection equipment to measure how far the water extends into the house’s structure. Further, we will employ infrared technology to look for trapped water behind walls and ceilings.
We also analyze the extent of the problem and create a report covering all aspects of the safety and damage data.
Next, we work on water mitigation and water damage repair. Our crews have commercial grade submersible pumps and hoses which can extract any amount of excess water from your home. We have both truck-mounted units and portable versions that we will use to pump standing water or a flooded basement in the most efficient way possible.
Once the water extraction is completed, we also utilize industrial strength wet vacuums to remove all the remaining fluid from the floors and wet carpet.
We will also pull up any carpet or pads the need to be removed in order to protect the subfloor. However, we always do that with an eye toward salvaging whatever materials that we can.
Drying and Dehumidification
The key to a successful water damage restoration is the rapid structural drying and dehumidification of the building.
In order to accomplish this, we have high-flow air moving equipment and heavy-duty fans that create significant airflow. This air moving across floors, walls, and furniture will speed up the evaporation of water.
We also use industrial-strength dehumidifiers to pull moisture out of the environment. This will prevent structural damage and the warping and swelling of the wood found in furniture, walls, and floors.
We may also adjust the temperature within the house in order to aid in the dehumidification and speed the drying process.
Finally, we will continue all of these operations until our moisture meters show us that levels have returned to normal. This will ensure that porous materials like wood and sheetrock do not retain water and become a breeding ground for mildew and mold spores.
Cleaning and Sanitization
Our water damage cleanup services are universal in their nature. We will not only do carpet cleaning and water cleanup for your house but also for its contents like clothes, furniture, and personal items.
We know that you want to preserve your treasured possessions if at all possible, and so we work to restore everything we can using industry standard cleaning techniques.
Besides normal dry and wet cleaning, we have foams, abrasives, and immersion cleaning modalities available to us to bring your beloved keepsakes back to pristine condition.
The presence of water in a house may also require disinfection of some materials. This occurs most frequently in flood damage restoration cases. We will use antimicrobial sanitizers as needed to ensure there are no bacterial disease vectors that arise due to the water incursion.
Further, we use a high-grade air scrubber and industrial foggers to remove odors from the home and to clean your air.
We direct our final effort to returning your home to its previous pristine condition.
There are often a number of repairs needed when water damage has occurred. Drywall and carpet are often not salvageable, and so we will remove ruined materials and install new ones. Hardwood floors, tiles, and paint also can be damaged in a water incursion, so we will repair those as needed to bring the home back to normal.
Finally, if there are plumbing or electrical repairs required, our bonded team can provide those services as well. We will put our restoration certification to good use as we bring your house fully back to code.
We strive to make your water damage restoration cost reasonable, and we can work directly with your insurance company so that you never receive a bill.
We know that having water damage is stressful. And so, we really have only one goal in mind-returning you to your normal life as quickly as possible. Allow our water damage restoration service to make your house whole again.
