The water restoration industry has evolved considerable over the years. The original concept was to extract the water, and allow natural drying to occur. The demand for the field of psychrometry, the science of drying, became evident for not only public safety concerns, but also the cost and time saving of salvaging structure.

Whatever the source of the water damage, the impact on the ecology within the affected structure is important for healthy indoor conditions. Biological growth is always a great concern in the water restoration industry. Wet structure paired with favorable temperatures for microorganisms can initiate microbial amplification. The importance of a timely response to any water damage is necessary to prevent secondary damage, to stop amplification of microorganisms, and to minimize potential health effects.

Due to the level of expertise required to properly dry structure, educated professionals should always be selected to handle any water restoration. Our technicians are certified and experienced in microbiology, biocide chemistry, inspection techniques, psychrometry, thermodynamics, building science, and evaporation and dehumidification theory. Along with our extensive training requirements, we deploy state of the art equipment to dry residential or commercial structure.

Customer Guidance

In our industry, water is categorized in one of three categories based upon contaminant and bacteria count.

Category 1 (clean water source)

Advisable:

Eliminate the source of water if possible or contact repair person (plumber).
If there is no risk of electrical shock, turn off circuit breakers supplying electricity to wet areas: unplug and remove any small electrical devices currently located on wet floor coverings or other wet surfaces.
Remove and secure small furniture items as possible to minimize rust or stains.
Place aluminum foil under legs of wood furniture, especially antiques that may permanently stain carpet.
Hang draperies and pin up furniture skirts as possible to prevent contact with wet floors.
Remove books, shoes, paper goods, and small items. (Don’t forget under beds and in closets)
Remove and secure breakables, and moisture sensitive high value items.
Make plans for restoration crews to remove large items from affected areas.
Be aware that time is a critical factor for mitigation. Restoration may result in adverse effects or additional damage to structure and contents if action is not taken promptly.
