Minimize the Damage Before Help Arrives

Our goal is to minimize the damage as much as possible. You can help. Before we arrive on the scene, here are a few steps homeowners can take to stay safe and prevent further damage to their property:

  • Identify and avoid any electrical hazards.
  • Use a mop or wet vac to get rid of as much water as possible.
  • Wipe off moisture and water from wood surfaces.
  • Ventilation is important to the drying-out process. Open your windows. If you have power, turn on the AC and turn on any fans you have.
  • Place any wet rugs, cushions, and curtains in a dry, airy place to dry.
  • Wear slip-resistant shoes.

The Water Damage Repair and Mitigation Process

When our water damage specialists arrive on site, the first thing they’ll do is assess the water damage. Next, we’ll put our industrial-grade fans, wet vacuum, pumps, and other equipment to work drying all carpet and indoor surfaces. We’ll remove wet carpets and padding and discard items that have suffered too much damage. We try to salvage what we can. To prevent mold growth, we will clean, dry, and sanitize any potential problem spots.

If your water damage is the result of a plumbing problem, we’ll identify the source of the problem and make repairs.

Once we’ve completed the initial cleaning, drying, and ventilating, we will do another full inspection to ensure we haven’t missed any spots. We’ll recommend any repairs (new carpet, drywall, etc.) that may be needed to get your property back to an operable state. Our priority is to mitigate the damage to your property while protecting and saving as many of your belongings as possible.
