What is Water Damage Restoration?
After a property has been damaged by water, water damage restoration restores it to its pre-loss condition. Every instance of water damage is different and can vary in severity. This means that the process of water damage restoration will also vary on a case-by-case basis, in order to ensure that the home or business that was affected by water damage gets treated and restored completely. In general, there are certain steps that will almost always be taken during the process of water damage restoration.
WHAT DOES THE WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION PROCESS LOOK LIKE?
There are many reasons why water can leak into a home or business, including a broken pipe, overflowing sinks or toilets, or flooding. As soon as the water enters a building, it can damage the walls, floors, and furniture, as well as encourage mold and mildew growth.
Water damage restoration begins with assessing the damage and determining its extent. One of our water damage restoration professionals can identify the source of the water, determine the extent of the water’s spread, and decide how to proceed. Upon completion of the assessment, All Dry can begin the restoration process.
It is important to start by detecting the source of the water and dealing with that before the process starts. This will guarantee that no more water is entering your property and causing visible or hidden damage as the team is working through the rest of the process.
The next step would include the removal of water. This is done by using specialized equipment to extract the water from the affected area. Once the water has been removed, the area is dried and sanitized to remove any remaining moisture.
After removing the water, your team of water damage restoration experts will begin to dry and dehumidify your home or business. Did you know that high levels of moisture in the air can even contribute to water damage? The recommended level for indoor humidity is between 30% and 50%. The use of dehumidifiers, fans, and other equipment will allow us to reach those ideal levels again. It is also important to dry out the materials that were affected by water damage. Though it may seem easy enough to detect the presence of water using your basic senses, there are actually special tools that can help us ensure that all the water is gone for good. Even trace amounts of water that are left behind can cause extensive damage in the future, making this step of the process essential.
Restoring a property to its pre-loss condition can be achieved through water damage restoration. Furthermore, it can protect the property from experiencing further damage. Water damage restoration professionals should be contacted as soon as possible if you suspect your property has been damaged by water.
