What is Water Damage Restoration?
Water damage restoration is the process of repairing a property that has been impacted by water including damage to walls, floors, and ceilings as well as water-damaged furniture and personal belongings. It's important to act quickly to minimize the damage and ensure proper remediation.
Step 1: Assessing the extent of the damage and determining the source, whether it be a burst pipe or flooding from inclement weather.
Step 2: The water must be removed from the affected area using specialized equipment such as pumps and dehumidifiers in order to prevent mold growth.
Step 3: Repairs can begin on water-damaged materials such as drywall and floorboards, and any damaged personal items can also be restored or replaced.
