The Water Damage Restoration Process

Inspection

When dealing with a water damage emergency, our experts will begin by performing a detailed inspection of the property, including a cost evaluation. This way, they will be able to determine the extent of the damage in order to develop a suitable plan of action.

Identify and Stop the Source of Water

The first thing to be done before water damage restoration is to find the source of water and stop it. The experts will also check for contaminated water.

Extraction

After stopping the source of water, the extraction process begins. This is the stage where the majority of water is removed. We use powerful truck mount vacuum units and pumps to remove gallons of water from the property.

Other tools used include:

  • Infrared cameras to find water that is "hidden" behind the walls and ceilings
  • Hygrometers, moisture detectors, and other meters to measure the level of moisture saturation

After water suction, our experts in Water Damage Restoration Shawnee KS will:

  • Remove irrecoverable structures and contents [including carpet and flooring, paneling, cabinets, drywall, shelving, etc.]
  • Professionally clean and disinfect the affected areas
  • Ventilate and dry the property using dehumidifiers
  • Tow away any trash
  • Document the water damage with the before, during, and after pictures, for use with your insurance company
  • Work with the insurance adjuster and file claims directly with your insurer.

Keep in mind that the exact cleaning and drying time depends on the extent of the water damage as well as the time it will take for moisture, humidity, and temperature testing to verify that the structure has been dried to acceptable standards.

    Craig and Patti, I want to thank you and your crew for doing a terrific job on sanding and refinishing the wood floors in our living room, dining room and stairs. They had gotten so dingy, and worn out; and after five dogs over the years, they were quite scratched. Now they look fantastic, they are smooth, the color is perfect and wood grain is so rich. I am not sure I even want to put any rugs down.
