Providing 24/7 emergency response to help minimize your property damage!
Water removal services on their own are usually not enough to remove all the moisture from your property after a water damage event. Water can hide behind walls, under flooring, or in your HVAC system and vents. At Precision Environmental, we provide expert drying and dehumidification services, with a combination of dehumidifiers and high-velocity air movers to remove moisture from your property. With so much at stake, we’ll make sure your life gets back to normal, quickly.
Time is of the essence when it comes to drying out your property. The longer your property is wet, the more extensive the damage can become and the more difficult it will be to restore your items to their pre-damage state. Our water damage restoration team is available 24/7 to take your call.
Risk of excess water in your property.
Excess water in the property can be caused by several situations, including:
• Severe weather
• Clogged or broken gutters
• Leaking pipes
• Blocked drains
• HVAC condensation
Excess water can wreak havoc on the structural integrity of your home. For example, water can warp floors and walls, discolor paint, and cause structural failures and wood swelling. Often, you may not be aware of a water leak until it’s too late and the damage has become severe. Water damage is a top contender for the most significant problem your house could potentially deal with due to cost and the amount of time it takes to repair. In addition, this excess water can cause mold to grow and cause health problems for you and your family.
Throughout our 39+ years of service, we have learned a lot about the appropriate way to dry out and dehumidify any property type.
Our four-step Drying & Dehumidification process includes:
1. Inspect and assess: Using state-of-the-art instruments, our certified technicians will inspect your home for water damage, identify the source, and outline the work required.
2. Remove water: We use various methods to extract water, including absorbing, draining, pumping, and vacuuming.
3. Dehumidification: We use professional dehumidifiers for water-damaged homes to extract moisture from the air and expedite the drying process. Using equipment such as air movers, we help the water to evaporate faster.
4. Monitoring: Our technicians take atmospheric and moisture content readings that indicate whether the area is drying, at what rate, and what adjustments, if any, need to be made to expedite the drying process and avoid excessive uncontrolled humidity levels.
Our five-step Water Damage Restoration process includes:
1. Initial Inspection: A Precision Environmental professional will assess to determine the appropriate action needed to reverse the adverse effects of the water damage. Once completed, if there are no safety hazards, contents are secured if needed, and restoration begins.
2. Water Extraction: Containing the damage and extracting all standing water begins. All wet materials on the floor, i.e., throw rugs, pillows, clothing, furniture, office equipment, are removed from the affected area. Once water is extracted, if needed, technicians will begin to remove water-damaged surfaces on walls, ceilings, or floors to help expedite the drying. Cabinet drawers and doors are opened, and toe kicks (a bottom front piece of your cabinet that will allow exposure under your cabinet) may be removed to accelerate drying. Every wet surface will need to be treated.
3. Stabilizing and Drying: The drying process begins after extraction and removing all wet materials. Commercial grade equipment is used in this process, including air movers, dehumidifiers, wood floor drying systems, and heaters to generate dry air and increase air circulation and evaporation. The environment is carefully monitored each day during the drying, and the progress results are documented. Moisture control is crucial in preventing mold growth.
4. Re-assessment of the Damage: After structural drying is completed, certified technicians will conduct another inspection to ensure no hidden pockets of moisture could result in further water-related damage or mold growth.
5. Reconstruction Build-Back: Once the water damage has been mitigated and the structure has been returned to a dry standard, reconstruction is the final step in the restoration process if structural damage and other building materials need replacement. By the end of reconstruction, your dwelling will be safe, healthy, and returned to its pre-loss condition.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 85% of commercial buildings and residential homes experience excess moisture and water leaks.
When water damage hits your property, many questions will come up. These water mitigation resources will give you answers to important questions. Water damage brings about a destructive force resulting in various secondary problems impacting your property. Therefore, if your property incurs water damage, having immediate repairs done is crucial. The extent of water damage can be misleading when viewed on the surface.
