What Is Water Damage Restoration?
Water damage restoration is when the affected structure or household items are restored to their pre-incident state. We provide water damage restoration for immovable and moveable items (furniture, drapes, rugs) inside the home or office.
Compare this to water mitigation, a three-step process that precedes the water damage restoration process. Water damage restoration steps include water containment, removal of affected items, and water extraction.
In either case, the team at HRS Restoration Services is ready to help when you need it. We offer trained, specialized technicians and licensed contractors who can help you stop the water, clean up the mess, and repair the damage.
Call us as soon as you discover damage and we will be there to help.
How Long Does Water Damage Restoration Take?
The length of time needed for water damage restoration depends on the amount of water, how far it has spread, the composition of affected surfaces, and the method of extraction.
For instance, using suction for standing water won’t take as much time as the process for removing water from carpet or behind walls. walls.
How Much Does Water Damage Restoration Cost?
The cost of water damage restoration varies given the amount of water, the extent of damage, and the difficulty of removal. If water damage has occurred under flooring and walls, water damage restoration will take more time, require additional tools, and cost more.
Water Damage Restoration & Remediation Process
After the water is gone, the water damage restoration process begins. Our team will bring in humidifiers and high-powered air dryers and thermal cameras to detect the dampness and dry it before mold and bacteria take hold.
In addition, the water damage restoration process involves salvaging any items that could be cleaned and returned. After water-damaged items are removed, professionals can disinfect the area.
Our team of water damage professionals inspects your home or office for standing water. If the carpet is wet, they will use a moisture probe inside and under the carpet pad.
HRS uses a truck-mounted extractor for superior suction and fast water removal from non-carpeted rooms. Our specialized water claw extraction head can compress the carpet and underlying pad to squeeze out excess moisture.
Water removal is not complete until we find the “hidden” moisture areas (under cabinetry, inside vents, etc.) and remove all traces of water.
Damage Evaluation & Mitigation
Our team of water damage professionals will inspect walls and flooring for bulges and warping and other signs of water damage. If the affected wall or floor is still mostly intact, we may be able to salvage it and not have to replace it. However, if the wall or flooring has become too weak structurally, replacement may be your best course of action.
We look for other signs of water damage such as warped or cracked tiles in your kitchen, bath, or basement.
If the water damage resulted from a weather-related event, we also check the window frames and roofing, and other points of water entry.
The water damage mitigation process involves using specialized tools and techniques to minimize the amount of loss, including removing damaged furniture and flooring, cleaning and disinfecting anything that can be saved, and checking your home or office’s structural stability.
Water Damage Restoration
Water damage restoration is necessary when your property has been affected by a water intrusion and is no longer able to function properly as a dwelling for you, your family, and those who live and work in the space.
After the water remediation process is complete, a team of licensed contractors is able to perform water damage restoration work.
This includes repair of all areas possible, replacement of what can be replaced, and restoring the property back to its pre-damaged condition.
Is Water Damage Restoration Necessary Or Worth It?
Definitely. Our trained water damage professionals can handle water damage restoration, the final step.
Remember, water damage remediation is the steps to control the problem and water damage restoration “restores” your home or office back to the way it was before the water damage.
