An experienced team will understand the rules and protocols to follow to ensure everyone’s safety.
The remediation process will look a lot like this:
The excess water is generally removed using powerful truck-mounted vacuums, and moisture meters are also used to ensure that all excess water is identified. Next, depending on the level of damage, and the source of water loss, the crew will work on cleaning and sanitizing the affected area. Lastly, the team will repair any soft items that were exposed to the water damage such as clothing, shoes, bags, stuffed animals, etc. If the building’s infrastructure or appliances were damaged during the disaster, the crew will work with your insurance to have those items replaced or repaired as well.
When repairing water damage, it is critical to remove all excess water within the first 24 to 48 hours to help prevent the occurrence of mold growth. If there is mold growth present in the building, do not fear! The experts will take any necessary steps to remove the threat. Mold can be toxic to humans and pets, so it’s important to adhere to the warnings of the restoration crew. The affected areas of the building will be blocked off to limit access to the hazardous parts of the building. This will also help to elminiate the risk of cross-contamination to the other areas of the property.
