Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Gaining Clear Perspective Of The Damage

In order to move forward in the water mitigation process, it is crucial that our team has a clear understanding of your damage and the extent of your damage. Once we have arrived at the scene of the loss, our crew will begin with a detailed inspection and assessment of your property. We will look at the initial loss site and look for any other areas that have been damaged. Our team will also inspect the type of water that is involved and move any furniture or belongings in order to prevent them from being damaged as well.

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.
