Water Damage Restoration Process

January 18th, 2019

Water damage restoration” sounds good after your residential or commercial building has suffered water damage. With our restoration services, you can get back up on your feet, figuratively. Many of our customers tell us how, in the wake of water damage, their “house just didn’t feel like home” anymore. Indeed, going through water damage can be very similar to the feeling of having gone through a break-in or burglary: your home, your safest place, was broken into by an unwanted intruder. At USA Restoration, we can restore your home and give you greater peace of mind. In this blog, we’ll lay out how our process works as well as how we can help you.

Our Water Damage Restoration Service

The first thing you need to know about our restoration services is that they’ll be there for you in an emergency. Indeed, our emergency services are available 24/7/365. To be clear, that’s not an exaggeration, nor is it symbolism or rationalization. There’s no equivocation or room for interpretation here: we are there for you when you need us. Should you suffer an emergency, our restoration services can be there in a hurry to get started restoring your home or building. It’s never too late or too early to call us; we’ll be there for you when we’re needed.

Water Damage Restoration Process

The Initial Stages

From the moment we see our first glimpses of the water damage, we begin our assessment. A detailed, thorough examination of the damage is the first order of business. We leave no stone unturned, nor leak unexamined as we figure out what happened and why. To be clear, we also do this quickly. While we do a complete assessment, it doesn’t take a long time, either. We know how crucial every minute is. Then, we give you a plan of action. This plan of action is just as detailed and thorough as our assessment was. It contains everything we’re going to do, how we’re going to do it, and why. Of course, should you have any questions beyond that, our highly trained professionals are right there to help.

The Water Itself

Once we’ve given you the plan of action, typically the next stage is to remove all of the standing water. This is the water that you can see, that’s pooling in the area. We get it out of there pronto. To be clear, we don’t just sweep the water away or vacuum it. We do whatever it takes to make sure that all of that water gets out of there. This is not a “well, that’s good enough” kind of job. Our professionals use the most cutting edge technology to make sure that this water doesn’t stick around your building any more. Once we’ve started this particular stage, we don’t quit until all of the water is gone.

Drying and More

Just because all of the standing water is gone, that doesn’t mean that the area is dry. Indeed, it typically means that we’ve just begun the next stage of the process, the drying. Here, again we draw upon our years of experience and top flight technology. In the years that we’ve been providing restoration services, drying tech has come a long way. The drying machines and techniques we have today can get homes and other kinds of buildings dryer than ever before. Moreover, they can get these buildings that dry much faster than techniques and machines from the past.

After this, then the next step is to dehumidify the area. This is a crucial, often overlooked part. If humidity and moisture is allowed to linger in the area, it can lead to mold as well as a host of other problems. That’s why we make sure to dehumidify the area: it’s one more step towards returning the building to normal. By thoroughly dehumidifying it, we can help to make things like the way they’re supposed to be.

Another important step on that path is cleaning the area. There are some in our industry who see cleaning as something for the customer to do. However, at USA Restoration, we see it as one more critical part of the sanitization process. We make sure to sanitize and clean your area, so that it can be returned to the way it was quickly.

There’s a lot that comes under the heading of “restoration services.” Indeed, depending on the severity of your damage, we may even pack up some of your belongings and remove them from your home. Not only does this protect your items, it can help to make the restoration process that much quicker and smoother. Of course, once we’re done, we return the items to you.
