Water Damage Related Info
Water damage is one of the most common types of property damage in homes and commercial buildings because it can be caused by several factors including flooding, leaks, maintenance issues, and excess moisture. If the situation is not addressed immediately, the water will get absorbed by the building materials such as the wood, drywall, and insulation which will allow it to spread further throughout the home or building.

Water Damage Cleanup Process
Once our technicians arrive at the scene, we start with an assessment of the damage using moisture meters and thermal cameras that record the data in our cloud based software. We can access the cloud at any point during the restoration process to share the information regarding your loss with you.
After our initial assessment, we use a combination of dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the excess water or moisture and we can help you decide whether it is best to dry out certain structural elements and furnishings or have them replaced.
Flood Cleanup – What to Do:
