What’s in Store After Water Damage Takes Place

Flood Restoration

Whilst all damage caused by the flooding of water is different, there are some general things which you can expect when requesting the assistance from our experts. Before any action is taken to begin the flood restoration process, one of our experts will need to conduct a thorough inspection. This is a vital step in the process, as our expert will be able to diagnose the extent of the damage and the appropriate actions to take. Listed below are some things which you can expect when you request an expert to assist in your flood restoration!

1. Removal of Water

Standing water is incredibly dangerous, therefore the removal process needs to begin urgently. With the use of our state of the art equipment, our experts have the ability to extract dozens of gallons of water, in a short time-frame. By starting the removal process as soon as possible, you are able to drastically reduce the growth of mould and other bacterias.

2. Removal of Damaged Items

Our flood restoration team ensures our priority is to rescue any items in the affected area, however unfortunately, in some circumstances, the extent of damage caused to the items is beyond economical repair. In the instance you have a room with carpet, and the water has reached this area, it is highly likely that the carpet would need to be ripped from the floorboards by a professional. This would be required, as the carpet is highly vulnerable to the growth of mould, and more often than not, the carpet can not be salvaged.

3. Drying the Affected Area

Following the process of removal and elimination, our experts will take the necessary actions to ensure the affected areas are dried. With the use of equipment such as industrial sized fans, we are able to maximise the circulation of air, efficiently drying the affected areas. To ensure that all affected areas are dried thoroughly, our experts may be required to drill holes into drywall. This will create a passageway for the circulation of air to reach the back of the boards.

4. Restoration of the Affected Area

In the case of flood damage, some items have the ability to be salvaged, and our priority is to ensure we can salvage as much as possible. The flood restoration process includes the use of equipment and tools, such as air scrubbers, as a remedy for odours and bacteria. The final step is the restoration of the affected area. Some panels of drywall may need to be replaced, if damaged beyond repair. In the case of extreme flood damage, it may be a necessity to undergo a complete re-build of the affected area.
