Water Damage Restoration in Salt Lake City

Our Proven Process

Whether your situation requires emergency assistance or you’re able to schedule your services, we’ve developed carefully crafted techniques for efficiently restoring your property to pre-loss condition.

It starts with a thorough assessment of the damages to fully understand the scope of the situation.

We’ll then move onto water damage mitigation:

  • Removal of all damaged items – affected drywall, flooring, furniture, etc.
  • Extract excess water and dry the property using highly effective industry equipment.
  • Ensure that the structural foundation is safe.
  • Board up windows and use tarps for further protection from anything exposed to the elements.

After the mitigation process is complete, we’ll start handling water damage restoration:

  • Any items that can be saved will be disinfected and cleaned properly for safe use.
  • Remove any toxic mold colonies that have made your home theirs.
  • Replace structural components damaged beyond repair.
  • Conduct water and moisture testing for a healthy environment.

There are certain actions you can take to prevent further issues while our team of specialists is on their way:

What To Do

  • Turn off the electricity if you plan to enter a room with standing water.
  • Remove items from the damaged rooms that you’re able to relocate to a safe, dry place.
  • Wipe down furniture and use pieces of foil to protect the furniture from wet flooring.
  • Open doors, windows, closet drawers, and furniture drawers to keep air circulating.

What Not To Do

  • Never attempt to remove wallpaper, carpeting, or anything permanently affixed in the room.
  • If you see mold growth, do not disturb it. You’ll risk spreading potentially hazardous mold spores through the air.
  • Do not lay newspaper down to cover water damages or dry areas.
  • If you’re trying to remove water, don’t use a regular home vacuum to do so.
