Step 3: Water Removal / Water Extraction
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
After the initial inspection, our water damage restoration process begins with water extraction. Using powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units, we swiftly remove large volumes of water from your property.
For extensive restoration or cleaning, we offer a move-out service to protect your belongings.
Our highly trained technicians promptly initiate the water removal process using submersible pumps and wet/dry vacuums. This helps reduce drying time and prevents secondary damage, mold, and bacterial growth.
We inspect and assess the carpet and pad, removing them if necessary to protect the subfloor.
Advanced equipment such as moisture detectors, hygrometers, and infrared cameras are used to measure moisture levels and locate hidden water.
Our comprehensive process ensures efficient water removal and effective restoration, safeguarding your property from further damage.
In summary, our water damage restoration process includes inspection, water extraction, move-out service if needed, thorough water removal, carpet and pad assessment, and the use of advanced equipment. We prioritize swift and efficient restoration to minimize damage and restore your property to its pre-damaged state.
