Our 5 Step Storm Damage Restoration Process
There are five steps to the storm damage restoration process:
- Damage Assessment - Our specialists will conduct a thorough inspection of your property to determine the extent of water damage and create a restoration plan.
- Water Extraction - We will use pumps and other specialized equipment to remove water from the interior of the property.
- Water Dry-Out - We will remove moisture from the walls, floors and other hard surfaces using dryers and dehumidifiers.
- Cleanup and Disinfection - We will sanitize the interior to remove the risk of mold and bacterial infection. We will also deodorize it to remove offensive odors.
- Repair and Restoration - We will restore the interior to as close to its original condition as possible. We will rebuild and repair damaged areas.
If the property is flooded, it is imperative that the water extraction process starts at once, to avoid serious structural damage to the property. Meters such as hygrometers and moisture detectors are used to measure the amount of moisture saturation on the property. Infrared cameras may also be used to detect water hiding between ceilings and walls. These tools will assess the extent of flooding as well as the equipment to be brought in.
Wet/dry industrial strength vacuums are normally used but submersible pumps may also be brought in. Truck-mounted and portable units will be used to ensure the removal process is as efficient as possible so the drying process can begin, and to reduce secondary water damage.
Your walls will still be moist after the water has been removed. Many common materials, such as drywall, will actually retain water because they are porous. Retained water will not only cause these materials to warp, swell and become damaged, it will also result in mold infestation in affected areas.
Dehumidifiers and industrial air movers are used to dry the surfaces of the property. To accelerate the drying process, high-speed air movers generate airflow in the interior to accelerate moisture evaporation. Moisture meters are used to measure the progress of the drying process in the floors, ceiling and walls until an acceptable level of dryness is achieved.
Clean Up and Repair
After the interior has dried, your property must be professionally cleaned to restore as much of it as possible to its previous condition. To ensure that it is safe to live in, the property will be sanitized and disinfected using antibacterial and antimicrobial treatments. This will avoid infection by mold and harmful bacteria. Our specialists will also conduct deodorization to remove offensive odors, using fogging equipment and air scrubbers that can handle persistent odors.
We will do a thorough assessment to determine what can be restored and what must be discarded. This will save you money and help preserve personal items and keepsakes that are irreplaceable. Our restoration services include painting of the walls and other surfaces, removal of damaged drywall and re-installation, carpet shampooing and installation, and floor repair.
