Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
The next step of the water restoration process is Inspecting and Assessing the water damage. We arrive at the property and begin a detailed, emergency inspection and a damage assessment. There are three main components we are looking for: 1. We want to Identify the type of water and Stop the source of the water. 2. We need to Survey and Inspect the entirety of the loss location & 3. Move or Block furniture. Overall, our trained professionals are trying to get an idea of what all has been affected. This overview will help them to identify a plan of action specifically for your home.
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.
