Water Damage Restoration Steps

1) Identify and Stop Source of Leak  
  • Usually water damage is caused by a roofing leak, or a sudden appliance failure, such as a hot water heater bursting, or dishwasher not draining properly
2) Identify Water Damage
  • A project manager will come out and determine the scope of water damages
  • We use leak detectors to find where the water’s source and it’s impacts
3) Water Removal / Dehumidify the Area
  • We bring in commercial equipment to pump the water from the space
  • We use ventilation blowers and position them to extract moisture from the area
  • When needed, we remove the baseboards and a portion of drywall to ventilate the areas in the walls, or within wooden cabinetry
4) Mold Remediation?
  • Mold Remediation is the process of removing mold spores that have been caused by a standing water leak. The truth is that mold is naturally occurring, but it becomes dangerous when water has been left for a long period in a closed environment.  This has given the mold spores the time to grow. If you see mold then you must remove it, mold remediation is the process of safely removing mold with protective equipment and fungicides
5) Dispose of Damaged Materials
  • We use proper techniques to minimize the damages to your home, if it’s necessary to deconstruct an area to identify and stop water damages, we will remove and dispose of the water damaged building materials
