Water Damage Restoration
We services a wide range of customers and property types. From commercial properties and businesses, government buildings, multi-family properties, healthcare facilities, hotels, residential homes, and more.
Our Water Mitigation and repair process:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Water Damage Timeline
- Within Minutes: Water quickly spreads throughout your property, saturating everything in its path. Water is absorbed into walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings. Furniture finishes may bleed, causing permanent staining on carpets. Photographs, books, and other paper goods start to swell and warp.
- Hours 1 - 24: Drywall begins to swell and break down. Metal surfaces begin to tarnish. Furniture begins to swell and crack. Dyes and inks from cloth and paper goods spread and stain. A musty odor appears.
- 48 Hours to 1 Week: Mold and mildew may grow and spread. Doors, windows, and studs swell and warp. Metal begins to rust and corrode. Furniture warps and shows signs of mold. Paint begins to blister. Wood flooring swells and warps. Serious biohazard contamination is possible.
- More Than 1 Week: Restoration time and cost increase dramatically, replacing contaminated materials and structural rebuilding may be extensive. Structural safety, mold growth, and biohazard contaminants pose serious risks to occupants.
