Immediate Steps to Take if You Have Water Damage

First Onsite Water Damage Recovery Process
Our recovery process for water damage involves cleaning, sanitizing, repairing, and restoring the property to the state it was in before water damage occurred. Our process includes the following:
Contain the water source to stop the immediate flow of water and ensure the site is safe to operate in.
Remove any excess water as well as any water-soaked and damaged materials.
Deploy moisture-detection and drying equipment to remove water hidden within building materials or other areas.
Begin the drying process to all affected areas with air movers & specialized dehumidifiers.
Apply an EPA-registered disinfectant per the manufacturer’s guidance to protect the health and safety of the building’s occupants from potential mold growth.
Manage the controlled removal of damaged drywall, flooring, or insulation that was exposed or damaged.
Restore the affected area to pre-loss condition by replacing damaged materials like drywall, flooring, and insulation.
