Water damage restoration is the process of cleaning up and repairing a property that has been damaged by water. This can include cleaning up and drying out the affected area, as well as repairing any damage that has been done to the structure of the building and its contents. Water damage can be caused by a variety of things, such as flooding, leaks, or other water-related events, and it is important to address it as soon as possible to prevent further damage and to restore the property to its original condition. The process of water damage restoration typically involves several steps, including:

Assess and Document Damage

  • Taking photos, making notes, and conducting tests to determine the source of the water and the level of damage.

  • We Utilize State of the Art Tools for Documentation​

  • 3D Documentation, taking measurements, documenting damge.

  • Resulting in faster completion of claim.

Water Removal / Extraction


Extracting the water: The next step is to remove the water from the affected area. This may be done using specialized equipment, such as pumps and vacuums, to quickly and effectively remove the water.

Removing as much water as possible during this stage expedites the drying process more than any other step.  Any water that is left in the carpet is dried with drying equipment such as fans and dehumidifiers.  This process of evaporation takes exponentially longer the more water that is left in the carpet / floor covering.

Restoration Process

Drying the area: After the water has been extracted, it is important to dry the affected area as thoroughly as possible. This may be done using fans, dehumidifiers, and other equipment to help remove moisture from the air and surfaces.  Typically the last material to dry in a flooded / water damage affected home is the bottom sill plate of the wall.  Though, there are many variables to take in to consideration when determining the length of estimated drying time to restore all damages from the water intrusion.  Most important are:

  • Material Permeance - a materials permeance determines how long it takes for water to pass through that material.  So while water can pass through drywall very fast, wet drywall will be one of the first things to dry.  However, the framing and bottom 2x4 of the wall, the sill plate -- will take longer as 2x4 lumber takes longer for water to pass through.  Which results in longer times for the water to pass through when drying.  This is due to the science of drying.  The energy dispersed by fans or heaters bring energy to the 2x4, and that energy leaves the board with some of the moisture; as the surface of the 2x4 dries the water beneath the surface begins to wick up, until all the water is evaporated.

  • Dwell time:  Longer the water has sat, the longer the dry time takes.

Cleaning and disinfecting: Once the area has been dried, it is important to clean and disinfect to prevent the growth of mold and other harmful bacteria. This may involve using specialized cleaning products and equipment to remove any remaining water and to sanitize the area.

Repairing the damage: The final step in water damage restoration is to repair any damage that has been done to the property. This may involve repairing or replacing damaged building materials, such as drywall and flooring, as well as restoring any items that have been damaged.

Water damage restoration is an important process that can help to prevent further damage to a property and to restore it to its original condition. It is important to hire a professional water damage restoration company to handle the process, as they have the expertise and equipment necessary to effectively clean up and repair any water damage.
