Precision Environmental takes care of every detail when managing a water problem, including the quick extraction, drying, and restoration of your property and belongings. Water can destroy property more so than any other single substance. Therefore, it is important to act as soon as water damage is detected. Our staff responds 24/7/365 to eliminate the source of the water and limit the adverse effects that follow.
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
After extraction and removing all wet materials, the drying process begins. 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. During the drying, the environment is carefully monitored each day, 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.
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.
