Water Damage Restoration
Restoration companies involved in water damage remediation and structural drying efforts will use a number of tools such as blowers, floor driers, heaters, fans, and dehumidifiers to ensure they remove all the excess water as soon as possible to minimize the possibility of microbial growth as the high levels of humidity mix together with airborne allergens and ultimately turn into mold spores. Hiring the right certified firm that adheres to the strict IICRC standards of applied drying and has the resources to get onsite, do the moister assessment and set up all the correct equipment in the optimal locations can make the difference between a small water loss first that will be completed in several days and a significant mold infestation that can take weeks to contain.
After the water damage has been taken care and everything is dry and safe, you now need to build it back.

Water Damage Restoration Tip
Restoring water-damaged homes after a disaster can be a real challenge if you don’t know what you’re doing.
Depending on the source of the water you can experience light to heavy stains to the walls and the floors of your home.
Flooding can be caused by a number of problems such as broken pipes, rain/wind, tree damage, leaking plumbing fixtures, and natural disasters, causing different levels of destruction throughout your home.
Once water floods the house you can check whether the restoration efforts are going the right way in a few ways. If you still sense a musty, stale smell in the air this means you may have rotting wood and water still remaining somewhere around the home. You could also notice a change in the color and texture of the walls and floors and in some cases that will be irreversible and may need serious repair work.
This won’t just affect the look of your home but also its value and potentially your health.
