Inspect & Assess Damage
Using moisture detection equipment such as moisture meters and infrared cameras, a certified and trained estimator is able to determine what is wet and how wet it is. Relative humidity and moisture levels in the air and structure of your home will also be documented. We will protect and move affected contents to a safe environment to prevent secondary damage to these items. You may not realize that excessive humidity can cause moisture to travel into dry or unaffected areas in your home. Not only can this make the project larger, but it can damage your furniture, pictures, and other valuable items.
Water Removal & Extraction
Now that we know where the moisture has traveled we will quickly begin removing the bulk water from the structure. We will utilize our truck mounted extraction equipment to remove standing water from hard surfaces and carpet. We carry a large inventory of extraction tools from trash pumps to weighted extraction tools. Our equipment allows us to remove the water quickly to help prevent any additional or secondary damage.
Cleaning & Sanitation
We are trained to identify whether the water is contaminated or not. If needed, we will flush the affected areas with very hot water and at times we will apply an anti-microbial agent. Anti-microbial agents are used to deodorize, sanitize, and prevent microbial growth. Children, the elderly, and others with weak immune systems or respiratory problems can get sick from strong solutions such as antimicrobials. We will advise if any safety precautions are needed.
Not only will we install specialty drying equipment, but we will remove any needed materials such as drywall, insulation, baseboards, linoleum, etc that cannot be restored. We do this in order to increase the rate of drying. A certified and trained technician will inspect your property regularly to ensure that everything is drying properly. In addition the scope of work, relative humidity of the air, moisture content levels of structural materials, and the overall drying progress will be documented. Digital pictures will be taken for evidence of the affected areas, structural damage, and damaged contents if applicable.
