Our water damage restoration process will evaluate three criteria to determine the best course of action:
Water Damage Restoration and Repair Process
This is when they will use their moisture sensors and meters to see how far the damage goes and how wet the area is, including the ceiling, walls, and carpet/carpet pad, or another flooring.
Remove Standing Water
If there is standing water in the area, this will be removed. No other work will be able to continue if the water remains in the area. This will also allow the technicians to find the source of the issue so that the issue can be taken care of.
Prevent Further Damage
Water damage can weaken the integrity of certain structural materials, making them a hazard if they collapse. In some cases, this material may not be able to dry properly, so to prevent water remaining trapped in the area, it will be removed.
Drying and Dehumidification
After the standing water has been removed and materials that could pose a drying or structural hazard have been removed, the drying process will begin. This often involves placing fans and a dehumidifier in the area.
MonitoringThroughout the entire process, the technicians will monitor how well the drying is going. They’ll use their meters to test the moisture content in the affected areas and ensure that their equipment is working properly.
CompletionOnce the meters read moisture levels equal to the previous dry state of the room, the technician will remove the fans and dehumidifiers from the area. At this point, the water remediation process is considered to complete.
Water Damage Repair Additional DamageAs mentioned, sometimes ceilings, walls, or flooring have to be torn out, baseboards might be removed, or holes might be drilled into walls to ensure proper drying. Our water damage technicians may do these repairs themselves. Having this conversation during the inspection phase of the process will let the homeowner or business owner know what to expect when this phase is finally reached.
