Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Even if you are unsure of where the problem originated, it is important to call a professional as soon as you detect water damage. Our extensive experience with water loss will reduce the possibility of related complications, such as mold growth, and result in a thorough dry down strategy.
Upon arrival, our technician is there to listen to your concerns and walk you through a plan based on your specific water damage emergency. We begin with a detailed inspection of your home or property, including a damage assessment to determine the scope of the damage and the amount of resources needed to complete the project. Next, our advanced equipment, such as the moisture meter, will find hidden patches of water in high risk areas. Once your questions have been answered, we are ready to begin water removal.
Identify and Stop the Water Source
We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.
- Stop the Source
- Check for Contaminated Water
Identify the Type of Water
We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure our professionals restore your property based on industry guidelines. The level of contamination of the water will affect the specific restoration processes we use.
- Category 1: "Clean Water"
- Category 2: "Gray Water"
- Category 3: "Black Water"
Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises
We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident. If there are any safety issues like lead or asbestos, please bring them to our attention.
