No one expects to have to deal with water damage, so it is unsurprising that so many are shocked once it happens to them. But when looking at the numbers, you’ll find that water damage is surprisingly common—14,000 people experience a water damage emergency each day.  

Because there are some health hazards associated with water damage as well as structural or secondary damages, it is important that your property is restored quickly and correctly by certified experts to prevent further complications.

The Steps of Water Damage Restoration

Following water damage, you want to know what to expect from the restoration company that will be entering your home or business. Here are the steps of our water damage restoration process:

  1. Emergency Contact
    When you make the initial call to our live 24/7 Emergency Line, you will be greeted by a representative who is eager to help. They will ask you questions regarding the details of the water damage in order to help our technicians know what to expect when they are dispatched.
  2. Water Damage Inspection
    Our experienced technicians will come on-site to assess the water damage to better understand the extent of damage and the full scope of areas that have been impacted. This allows them to better plan a remediation strategy to facilitate the proper restoration methods.
  3. Removal and Extraction of Moisture
    To prevent further damage and discourage mold growth, our teams will begin extracting moisture as soon as possible following the inspection. Because mold growth can occur as quickly as 24 hours after water exposure, acting fast is essential for this step.
  1. Dehumidifying and Drying
    The pumps and vacuums will remove the largest amount of water, and then our technicians will move in with more specialized equipment to remove the remaining water from the structures of your property via fans and dehumidifiers.
  2. Thorough Cleaning
    Depending on where the water damage occurred, it is quite common to have personal items and furniture impacted as well. Our technicians will be able to assess what can be restored and utilize scientific cleaning techniques for these items. Using special fogging equipment and antimicrobial treatments, they will also remove odors and treat items to prevent mold growth.
  3. Restoration
    Restoration of your property to its pre-damaged condition is the final step. Whether this means major reconstruction or minor wall patching, we are able to help you from start to finish.
