The Water Damage Restoration Process
If you’ve found that your home or business has water damage, call Restoration 1 immediately to start assessing the damage and saving your property from further damage. Upon receiving your call, we will quickly send out one of our trained water damage restoration professionals to inspect your property. In this inspection we will work to identify any existing water damage, as well as any other information that we can gather to assist in formulating an accurate restoration estimate.
When the water extraction phase begins, we will be sending out a full water restoration team armed with industry-leading, industrial-grade water extraction equipment. Our goal in this step is to remove every ounce of standing water, from within your home or business, in as short a time as possible. This urgency is key in saving your property further damage and minimizing the scope of our restoration job. Depending on the amount of water needing to be extracted, we will run our equipment around the clock until the job is done.
More often than not, some level of building materials will have been damaged in the occurrence of a flood or water damage. In some cases, such as with sewage backup, certain materials will be deemed unsalvageable just due to the toxic nature of the water. In any case, our restoration team will work to safely and efficiently remove any irreparable materials, leaving a clean slate and minimizing the risk of mold growth taking hold in your home or business.
Drying and dehumidification is essentially the second phase of the water extraction process. Once saturated and damaged materials have been removed, we implement our industrial grade blowers and dehumidifiers to remove the water that has soaked into various materials. In this step, we will utilize moisture meters to gauge the amount of water remaining in specific materials, allowing us to estimate how close your property is to being completely dry.
When dealing with water damage, we typically are also dealing with your insurance provider. In an attempt to ensure that you receive the coverage you deserve, our water damage restoration team will be documenting the entire process, taking photos of the damage, of lost possessions, as well as written documentation of the costs and more.
Once your property has been completely dried and all water damage concerns have been addressed, the last thing for us to do is to repair any damages that were caused by the water or during our restoration.
What To Do When You Find Water Damage
Whatever the source of your water damage is, fast mitigation is needed to return your property to its pre-loss condition. This is where Restoration 1 of Fairfield truly shines. Even still, while you await our arrival, there are some steps you can take to improve the situation. Here is what to do when you find water damage, and of course, what not to do.
Does Insurance Cover Water Damage Restoration?
Damage to your home from water is typically covered by a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. The biggest stipulation in these cases is that the loss generally must fall into the parameters of sudden internal water damage. Like most insurance policies, homeowners’ insurance rarely covers damage done by lack of maintenance or negligence.
In any case, keeping records of the damages is a great way to make sure you are appropriately covered when your home has been affected by water damage.
