The 7 Steps for Water Damage Restoration
When water damage affects your home or business, it's important to get in touch with professionals as quickly as possible. This blog explains the steps that should be taken after you’ve gotten in touch with a water damage restoration team.
Inspection & Damage Assessment
In the first step, your team should visit your space, assess the damage, figure out the hazards, decide what can be salvaged, and work to stop the cause of the damage.
Once the initial assessment comes the first step in recovery - pumping however many gallons of water out of your home thoroughly.
Damaged Material Removal
The next step in cleaning water damage is removing any damaged materials, be it furniture, or parts of your home’s structure.
Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Deodorization
Once the damaged materials have been removed, the team should work to clean, sanitize, and deodorize whatever’s left, to make sure it’s still liveable in the future.
Just because the bulk of the water is gone, that doesn’t mean dampness isn’t still a problem, which is when industrial drying equipment comes in.
Throughout the process, professionals should visit your property daily, to see how the drying is coming along.
Repairs & Construction
After the property has been neutralized and any items have been removed or restored, your home may need real structural attention, which should come only at the end of the process.
