Restoring Homes After Disaster Strikes

Water Damage Restoration

Water damage often requires urgent response to prevent secondary damage to your home. Here are key steps professional restorers take:

1. Assess Damage and Stop Active Leaks

Pinpoint every source of water intrusion and stop additional flooding immediately through temporary repairs.

Inspect for hidden water between walls, under materials, and in less visible areas. Moisture meters and thermal imaging aid detection.

2. Extract Excess Water

Use high-volume truck-mounted extraction units and subfloor drying systems to remove standing water, starting from the lowest point of the home.

3. Dry Out the Environment

Position commercial dehumidifiers and use air movers to actively circulate air and bring down ambient moisture levels. This inhibits further issues like mold growth and wood warping.

4. Tear Out and Discard Water-Logged Materials

Carpet, drywall, insulation and other absorbent materials saturated past salvage must be removed and discarded to facilitate drying.

5. Monitor Progress with Moisture Readings

Moisture meter readings are checked until affected materials like walls and wood subfloors reach acceptable dryness levels for reconstruction.

Following structured drying protocols minimizes damage and prevents recurring issues like mold outbreaks down the line.

Smoke and Fire Damage Restoration

Here is the multi-step restoration process for smoke and soot removal after a fire:

1. Remove Soot and Debris

All surfaces are carefully wiped down and scrubbed with degreasers to remove char, ash, and soot absorbed into materials. Fire debris is also cleared.

2. Clean Air Ducts and HVAC

Air ducts are inspected and scrubbed as needed to eliminate contamination. HVAC system components like coils and air handlers are deep cleaned.

3. Seal Off Affected Areas

Containment procedures isolate areas undergoing cleaning to prevent cross-contamination throughout the home.

4. Treat All Porous Surfaces

Using specialized application methods, restoration chemicals are applied to porous structural materials like wood and drywall to encapsulate odors deep within.

5. Eliminate Odors

Thermal fogging, ozone treatment, and advanced air scrubbing remove smoke odors that linger even after cleaning soot away.

Only professional-grade treatments and equipment can fully eliminate stubborn smoke odors down to the deepest levels.

Sewage Backup Sanitization and Cleaning

Raw sewage releases extremely hazardous bacteria and biohazards. Complete disinfection is required.

1. Remove Sewage

Using truck-mounted extraction equipment, all affected water is vacuumed up and safely disposed of.

2. Clear Clogs and Blockages

Drain lines are hydro jetted to remove obstructions and help prevent recurrence.

3. Disinfect Surfaces

EPA-registered antimicrobials and hospital-grade disinfectants are applied to sanitize all affected areas down to the studs or masonry.

4. Deodorize

Repeat cleaning and deodorizing removes foul odors and ensures the freshness of your home. Air scrubbers continuously filter air.

5. Verify Sanitization

Environmental hygienists may take surface samples after cleaning to verify hazardous contamination like bacteria and viruses have been eliminated.

Only professional sanitization can restore your home’s safety after raw sewage contamination.

Storm Damage Repair

Storms often damage roofs, siding, windows, and the structure itself. Property damage professionals methodically repair and restore with an emphasis on stopping further water intrusion quickly.

1. Cover Roof Damage

Temporary repairs and tarps are used to seal off roof damage and prevent rainfall from entering the home.

2. Clear Debris

Downed vegetation, mud, and storm debris are carefully cleared from the home and property.

3. Assess Damage

The full extent of damage is inspected, including less visible water intrusion within walls and foundations.

4. Prioritize and Schedule Repairs

With safety as the priority, repair schedules are created starting with roofing, windows and siding to seal the envelope.

5. Coordinate Reconstruction

For extensive damage, general contractors may be brought in for major structural repairs in coordination with the restoration team.

A storm may have passed, but the right restoration process makes the difference between further destruction and a prompt road to recovery.
