Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Every single one of our technicians are full-time, expertly trained, background checked team members. When they arrive at your door to mitigate your water damage, they will be in full uniform and will have all the necessary equipment with them to immediately begin mitigation services.

After arriving, our very first step will be to inspect the damage. This is one of the most critical steps because while there may be a lot of water damage that is visible to the naked eye, there is also more than likely water hiding below and behind surfaces. By checking subfloors, walls, insulation, behind toe kicks, and under carpet pads, we can evaluate the extent of the water damage and create a plan to ensure that it is cleaned up properly.

Our service team has all the necessary inspection instruments to complete water damage repair. Once they have inspected all the affected areas, our crew will walk you through the water damage restoration steps and answer any questions that you may have.

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.
