Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
After our team has arrived at the site of the loss, we will begin by inspecting your property. We are looking for any and all signs of damage made to your property after a water loss event, including any hidden damage underneath your floors or in your walls and ceiliings. Once we have a visual of the extent of your damage, our crew can begin the water removal process.
The inspection and assessment step is very important. It is crucial that we get a clear overview of the damage in order to create a plan that efficiently restores your property back to preloss conditions.
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.
