Almost every home or building has been affected by water damage because it is so common but each case can differ drastically depending on the source and extent of the damage.

You can expect the following from our water damage restoration services:
- Treatment of the Source: We start by locating the source of the water or moisture and fix the problem to prevent further damage. We then evaluate the extent of the absorption with our probes and moisture detection meters.
- Assessment of the Carpet: Excess water can cause extensive damage to your carpet and we can evaluate the carpeting to determine if it can be salvaged or if it needs to be replaced.
- Assessment of the Flooring: Water and moisture can get trapped under hard surface floors such as hardwood, laminate, and vinyl where it can cause significant damage or mold growth. Our moisture meters allow us to detect the amount of water absorbed into the sub-floor so we can dry it effectively.
- Assessment of the Walls, Ceilings, and Cabinets: Hidden water or moisture damage within the walls, ceilings, and cabinets can lead to severe structural damage or mold growth. We can detect the level of damage with our moisture meters before removing areas of the wall or ceiling.
- Structural Drying: Once we have determined the extent of the water damage, we begin the drying process with air movers and dehumidifiers that can remove water and moisture from the structural elements and furnishings of your home.
