When your property has water damage, there is a critical five step process that should be followed to quickly and effectively restore your property while mitigating additional damage.
1. Inspection and Assessment
Whether your property is completely flooded or you just discovered a leak under your dishwasher, an inspection and assessment is necessary to identify the extent of the damage. Thermal imaging and moisture meters may be used to test for and identify areas where water or moisture may be present.
Once the extent of the damage has been determined, a restoration plan is formed and put into action. This plan outlines the most effective and most efficient process for cleaning up the water and drying and restoring your property.
2. Water Removal
Extraction of any standing water is the first step towards drying, disinfecting, and restoring your property. Pumps and powerful extraction equipment will be used to remove standing water as well as water trapped in carpeting or flooring materials, walls, ceilings, and wherever else water has gathered.
3. Anti-Microbial Treatments
When the water impacting your property is contaminated, as is the case with floodwaters, sewage, and wastewater, anti-microbial treatments will be applied to clean and disinfect affected materials that will remain in place. This is an important step that is critical for protecting your health and safety.
4. Drying and Dehumidifying
After the water has been removed, all affected materials need to be dried in a timely manner to prevent permanent damage and mold growth. Air movers and dehumidifiers will be used continuously until moisture levels are restored to normal levels. Moisture levels will be monitored and recorded regularly until the area is dry.
5. Repairs and Reconstruction
When drying is complete and all the water has been removed, there may be repairs that are needed to completely restore your property back to pre-loss condition. Common repairs include drywall and ceiling repairs and replacing flooring and insulation that were damaged by the water.
