Complete Water Damage Restoration Guide

A lot of people find our prices high because they don’t understand what the whole water restoration process means and how much time and resources we have to invest in it. Some people fall for low price offers from companies that tend to use hidden fees to make a profit in this kind of business. This hurts both the client and our company, as customer losses money through those hidden charges and we don’t get to show our expertise and do the job properly.

We don’t want this to happen because we are an honest business that is 100$ transparent. This is why we will post a guide that explains the process of water restoration which will give you some insight into the service you will have to pay.

Inspection and detection of the problem

Inspection and detection of the problemThe first step that we take in our line of work is to send a technician that will do an inspection of the premises that are affected by the water. This technician, also known as an inspector, carries several pieces of equipment that are capable of detection of moisture deep within the walls and the floor of the building. This, along with other forms of inspection, gives us the insight into the extent of the damage and thus it helps us deal with it.

This type of work doesn’t last too long, and the technician will usually come with other workers and finish his work in less than an hour. Other workers will extract the standing water while the technician evaluates the damage it did. The extraction of the water is something that has to be done as fast as it is possible to reduce the potential damage and to commence with the drying and restoration of the items that are affected by the water. The less time water remains at the location, the better it will be as it won’t do as much damage as it can.

Restoration and drying of the household

It will be easier to restore items if they spent less time in the water, and thus we prioritize fast water extraction before drying saved items. Restoration of the household will take longer than water extraction, and the exact time it will take to protect it depends on the extent of the damage and number of items that are affected.

The drying process can last up to four days, depending on the time the water was present in the household. The first step in this stage of the work is to remove all affected items from the house, and a part of our crew goes to salvage and dry as many of those as possible. Other workers use equipment to dry the walls and the floor over the span of several days.
