Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Water Extraction and Drying

Water Extraction

Water extraction is the process of removing standing water from the affected areas. This can be done by using pumps or wet vacuums to extract the water quickly. Depending on the amount of water, professionals may need to use submersible pumps or truck-mounted extraction units. During the water extraction process, it is essential to remove all the water to prevent further damage. Any remaining water can seep into the walls, floors, and other structural materials, leading to mold growth and secondary damage.

Drying Process

The drying process involves removing all remaining moisture from the affected areas. This can include walls, floors, carpets, and furniture. The drying process usually takes several days and is a crucial step in preventing mold growth. Professionals monitor the drying process using moisture meters to ensure that all materials are returning to their pre-damaged moisture levels. If any areas remain moist, the drying process continues until they are completely dry.

Preventing Future Water Damage

One of the most effective ways to avoid water damage is to take preventative measures. Here are some water damage prevention tips:

  • Regular maintenance: Regularly maintain your property’s plumbing and appliances to ensure there are no leaks or broken parts.
  • Proper landscaping: Ensure that the slope of your property directs water away from your home’s foundation and install a sump pump if necessary.
  • Upgrade appliances: Consider upgrading old appliances like washing machines and dishwashers with newer models that are more efficient and less likely to leak.
  • Roof maintenance: Keep your roof in good condition and fix any issues as soon as they arise to prevent water from seeping into your home.
  • Flood prevention: If you live in a flood-prone area, take measures to protect your property such as installing flood barriers or raising electrical sockets above flood level.

By implementing these water damage prevention tips, you can protect your property from potential water damage incidents. To follow a more proactive approach, consider waterproofing your home.
