When you call a trustworthy water damage clean-up team like Restoration Pros, they will respond immediately to manage the crisis. Each situation is unique, but a step by step process will solve your water damage problem.
Stop the Water
First things first! They will identify and close off the excess water. While an overflowing bathtub is an obvious source, leaky pipes may not be. Expert water remediators have tons of practice finding leaks, clogs and broken pipes.
If water has come in from a storm damaged roof, a professional team can get up on the structure and provide a temporary seal from additional bad weather.
An Experienced Assessment
A homeowner cannot see all the damage resulting from water. Professional teams know where to look and how to fix hidden moisture and potential problems. By combining moisture meters and a trained eye, they can find water behind walls, under floors and in crawl spaces that you would never suspect.
Cleaning and Containment
The cleaning, containment, and drying phases happen concurrently. When drying the home, damp areas are taped off in order to control the environment of the room and protect the rest of the house. During the process, crews monitor the dehumidifiers' intake and output temperatures and humidity levels.
Structural drying removes excess moisture from all wet materials that make up the structure. By managing a) the temperature of any wet materials, b) humidity levels and c) air flow, restoration teams can dry the unseen areas that could lead to future damage. A complete drying plan ensures that not just the air, but all the affected building materials are addressed.
All personal belongings need to be cleaned and sanitized to prevent unwanted mold and bacterial growth. Carpeting, clothing, and drapery are given antimicrobial treatments. Air scrubbers may also be used to remove particles and moisture from the air.
