Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
When responding to your water damage emergency, our technicians will inspect the affected areas and help guide you through any questions or concerns you may have during this process. Determining where the problem originally started is needed to understand the severity of the damage and what action needs to be taken. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful. Even if you are unsure of where the problem started our advance moisture meter can find hidden patches of water in high risk areas. With our expertise in water loss we will thoroughly dry down property and reduce the possibility of related complications including mold growth.
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.

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 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.
