Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Different Kinds Of Water Damage Events Have Specific Mitigation Requirements

Down below you will have the opportunity to learn more about our damage assessment process. This can hopefully give some more insight into the importance of calling your local water restoration company after a loss and what steps we will take to ensure that your property is safe!

If you have any questions about the damage assessment process or are in need of our emergency water services, please give us a call today!

Identify and Stop the Water Source

We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.

  • Stop the Source
  • Check for Contaminated Water

Identify the Type of Water

We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure our professionals restore your property based on industry guidelines. The level of contamination of the water will affect the specific restoration processes we use.

  • Category 1: "Clean Water"
  • Category 2: "Gray Water"
  • Category 3: "Black Water"

Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises

We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident. If there are any safety issues like lead or asbestos, please bring them to our attention.
