Moving quickly when water damage incidents occur is critical to ensure that as much of the property is protected as can be. A thorough evaluation of the grounds will determine where water damage exists and the necessary restoration steps.

Drying Ceiling Leaks in Forbing Properties

Ceiling leaks are not uncommon for area homes, as small leaks and sprays can develop over time with fluctuations in pressure or plumbing system age. When water stains become visible on the ceiling materials below, it is an indication that drying and repair efforts might be required in the cavity.

Do Burst Pipes in Forbing Homes Require Repairs?

Not every water damage incident will require our general contractor license to reconstruct and rebuild after remediation. With burst pipes, plumbing must be repaired to restore this vital utility service to the property.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet or may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
