Whether the cause is flooding, storms, rains or a busted pipe, dealing with large amounts of water in your home is not for the faint of heart. There are many issues that can crop up after the fact if water remediation isn't done properly. This could either mean costly repairs further down the line, or worse, health problems that linger for years to come. This is why water remediation is important, but some might wonder exactly what is involved in the process.
That is what we're here to tell you.
First - Inspect the Water Damage
For anyone doing water remediation, it is important to have a proper mix of technology and experience to be able to do the best job possible. There are modern tools to asses the state of a building, such as moisture meters that will tell you how much damage the water intrusion in your home has caused. Naturally, a tool is useless unless it's in trained hands, and that is what we provide. We will also check to make sure that there is no active source of water intrusion, since it is meaningless to do the remediation if there still is an active leak. We can assess the work that is needed and then provide an estimate of time and cost to you.
Next - Dry It Up
The first part of water remediation is always going to be water removal. The longer water is left in your home, the more damage it will cause. Using pumps and vacuums, we will make sure that the water is removed from your home as soon as possible. After it is gone, more tests will be performed to get a more complete picture of the situation we're facing.
After this comes the drying phase. We use commercial grade dehumidifiers to ensure that everything is as dry as possible. When that is completed, everything needs to be cleaned. While there are certain situations where there is a higher risk of contaminants in the water, such as sewage backup, there will always be a need for cleaning and sanitizing.
Finally - Restoration
After all these steps have been completed, it's time to perform the actual restoration. There might be a lot of material that needs replacing, especially if the water has been standing for a longer period of time. It's not always easy to tell beforehand how much of the home needs to be replaced, but rest assured that we will do our very best to make sure that your home will look as if nothing ever happened.
