The Water Damage Restoration Process Explained

The most important part of taking care of floods and leaks is stopping the source of water as soon as possible. If your pipes break, for example, you need an expert plumber to fix them before restoration begins. If a bad storm sends water pouring through your roof, call a roofing contractor to prevent future damage the next time it rains.

Repair – All necessary repairs must happen before restoration commences.

Removal of the Water – We vacuum or pump out the standing water and any other debris that came from the flooded area or leaks. This gives us a reasonable area to work in and judge the extent of the damage.

Disposal of Damaged Materials – Everything from soaked sofas to ruined wallboard gets removed and disposed of properly. While you may be able to salvage some furniture or fixtures, extensive water damage unfortunately destroys a lot of property.

Drying Everything Out – Powerful, portable dehumidifiers, blowers, and fans help get rid of all the remaining moisture in the room or area. Expect this part of the process to take several days to ensure that no moisture is left behind to cause additional problems.

Restoration – After removing the water, getting rid of destroyed building materials and belongings, and ensuring everything is dry once more, it is time to replace and rebuild as needed.

In the case of plumbing problems and leaks, you may need extra treatments to kill any bacteria issues arising from the presence of sewage. Anti-mold solutions are also a good idea.
