Our Water Damage Restoration Process
An immediate response is critical after a water damage event such as flooding and storm damage, water heater, or burst pipe. We do not take our time when it comes to your safety and your property.
Our water damage restoration is a 5-step process that begins with thorough assessments before deploying our industry-grade tools to do the restoration job.
Fortunately, we will walk with you throughout the restoration process to allow you accountability and guarantee customer satisfaction. Each of these steps below serves a fulfilling purpose to ensure that are all contaminants and water are extensively removed.
Inspection and Damage Assessment
Our experts conduct a thorough damage assessment of the water-damaged areas. During the inspection, our specialists will make conclusive assessments to categorize and classify the level and nature of water damage.
The experts will examine the materials’ porosity in the affected surfaces to determine how much water these surfaces have absorbed. Then, we use high-grade moisture detectors, including moisture scourers and hygrometers, to measure the damage level and estimate the work anticipated.
Our inspectors will also identify the water source to stop the water and determine the water contamination levels.
After the inspection and damage assessment, we will give you an approximate time and costs needed to restore your home.
Water Removal/ Water Extraction
We employ our water extraction techniques to remove stagnating water, which exposes your home’s structural integrity to ruin if ignored. Water removal/ extraction is a vital step when dealing with a flooded basement. This is because flooded basements are the most common areas for mold growth and breeding.
Our professional New York water damage restoration specialists use extractors during the water extraction process. These industry-grade high-power pumps and vacuums are designed to absorb all stagnant and surface water.
Some of the water extractors we use:
- Portable Wet/dry vacuum
- Truck-mounted vacuum
- Submersible pumps.
After removing the water, we inspect the area for any residual moisture levels and identify whether the hardwood floors or carpeting needs to be removed or replaced.
Drying and Dehumidification
Once we have extracted all the water from your homes, we begin the dehumidifying and drying process. We industry-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out any materials that are still wet or were too hard to access during the water extraction process.
Your home may appear dry, and it might not be easy to notice some materials that are still wet. However, if left wet, these materials will suffer further damage such as breaking, growing mold, or warping.
Simultaneously, our water remediation experts monitor moisture levels in the floors and walls of the water-damaged areas to determine whether your house is arid.
Cleaning and Sanitizing
After assessing the situation and drying out water, we then clean your home. Extensive, professional cleaning is a necessary step as part of the home restoration process. We strive our best to preserve much of your personal property.
Our cleaning process involves wet cleaning, dry cleaning, or spray-and-wipe cleaning. Our cleaning experts are trained in the safety and sanitization requirements of water-damaged homes. We employ the use of high-quality industrial solutions and tools to provide thorough cleaning.
Moreover, we use high-quality personal protective equipment when cleaning hazardous surfaces. Some of this equipment includes waterproofing clothes, protective gloves, and N-96 respirators.
Our cleaning professionals abrasive, foam, or immersion cleaning techniques to thoroughly clean every item in your home. If necessary, we also conduct mold remediation during this process.
We then dispose of all damaged materials removed after the cleaning process.
Restoration is the last process of our water damage restoration process. We strive to return your home to its original state before the water damage. Our repair experts fix any materials that were removed or permanently damaged.
Restoration time varies depending on the damage level in your home. It could be a simple repair such as drywall repair, or it could require something extensive like heavy reconstruction.
