Step #2: Water Damage Assessment And Inspection
Provision Restoration & Remodeling Water Damage Restoration Procedures And Process
When we respond to any water damage emergency, whether in business premises or a residential setting, we typically begin by conducting a detailed inspection. During the inspection, we conduct a damage assessment. During this stage of the process, our team of experts is trying to determine the scope and extent of the damage so that they can develop the most appropriate plan of action.
Identify And Stop The Source Of Water
Before embarking on any restoration endeavor, the source of water must be identified and stopped. You cannot dry and restore if the water keeps spilling back into the restored rooms.
Stop the Water Source(s)
Check Whether there is Contaminated Water
Identify The Various Types of Water We are Dealing with
Identifying and classifying the water involved is very important as it helps our professionals conduct the restoration process with strict adherence to the industry guidelines. The occurrence and the level of contamination do influence the kind of restoration procedures and processes that we use.
Category #1: “Clean Water”
Category #2: “Gray Water”
Category #3: “Black Water”
Inspect The Premises And Survey The Extent of Water Damage
Not only do we inspect the premises, but we also conduct tests to find out the exact extent of the damage. During this exercise, we determine how far the water has traveled, thereby ensuring that we can completely and comprehensively conduct restorations.
Moreover, we conduct safety inspections to determine whether there are any safety concerns. As such, we identify issues such as presence asbestos and lead and other safety issues.
Survey the Damage that has Occurred
Conduct Safety Inspection
Block or Move Furniture
Typically, we will move your furniture and other properties you have and block them to prevent such items from staining wet carpets.
Step #3: Water Extraction / Water Removal
After completing the damage inspection, we begin to extract the water. During this step, we will remove the vast majority of the flooded water using powerful pumps as well as truck-mounted vacuum machines. These tools can extract hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water with exceptional ease.
Pack-Out / Move-Out

Water Removal Equipment
We use Hygrometers, Moisture detectors, and other meters to measure moisture saturation extent.
We also Infrared cameras to locate “hidden” water pockets behind the walls and ceilings.
Step #4: Drying & Dehumidification
After removing the excess water, the walls and the floor seem dry. However, upon conducting a quick inspection, the floor, and the wall will feel wet to the touch. A lot of the building materials used in the construction of houses tend to be porous. For instance, wood, flooring materials, and drywall are porous and will retain water. If the retained water is not extracted, it can cause the materials to warp, break down, or encourage mold growth and subsequent damage.
Drying / Dehumidification
Our team of water damage restoration experts uses temperature, room measurements, and humidity measuring equipment to determine how many dehumidifiers and air movers to use in your premises. Moreover, we continuously monitor the progress using tools such as the moisture meter until the materials are dry as par the predetermined levels.

– Deploy Monitoring Equipment to Track Progress
– Monitor Walls and the Floor
We consciously check the moisture levels to monitor the progress made with regards to drying.
Using industrial-grade dehumidifiers helps prevent the occurrence of secondary water damage such as warping and swelling of the walls, the furniture, and the floor. On the other hand, high-speed air movers helps to move a lot of air across the pads, carpets, walls, and furniture, thereby accelerating evaporation.
Step #5: Cleaning & Sanitizing

Moreover, we also offer professional furniture, clothing, upholstery, and other property cleaning services. After thoroughly cleaning your property, you will need professional deodorization and odor removal to get rid of the humid odor.
