Water Damage Restoration
The process of restoring a property back to pre-loss condition after sustaining any level of water damage.
Principles in Drying
Contents require treatment due to effects of water damage. This may include, but is not limited to, sterilization, sanitization, deodorization, drying and storing of said contents. Other contents may simply be unsalvageable or the cost of having it salvaged would exceed its current value. In these cases, the contents would be discarded.
After the water has been extracted and any non-salvageable materials have been removed, the restoration company should return to the residence at regular time intervals, to monitor the equipment, temperature, humidity and moisture content of the affected walls, contents, or other affected materials. Should one area be dry and another affected area still wet, the firm will relocate or remove equipment accordingly.
Once the temperature, humidity and moisture content are deemed acceptable and safe according to industry standards, the water damage restoration equipment would be removed and the water damage restoration process would be complete.
