Water Damage Restoration Process

A professional water damage restoration service specialist will document your possessions that were affected by any water damage and reference industry standard pricing guides to determine the value of your possessions and materials lost. A water damage restoration specialist will also inspect the affected area(s) with water sensing equipment such as probes and other infrared tools in order to determine the source of the water damage.

A water damage restoration specialist will then begin the process of drying the structure, sanitizing any affected areas, and deodorizing all affected areas and materials. Once all of the water damage has been removed that can be removed manually, water damage equipment such as air movers, air scrubbers, dehumidifiers, wood floor drying systems, and sub floor drying equipment will be left in the residence to complete the drying process.

Moisture content readings will be taken and evaluated daily after the required drying equipment is set up. The daily moisture readings are taken so if there is a certain area that might be dry then equipment can be removed or moved to an area that might not be drying as fast, this is also a way of keeping the costs under control.
