Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for Arlington Heights Residents
1. Water Damage Assessment
We begin our process with an immediate assessment of water-damaged interiors and contents. We identify areas that need tear-out and belongings that can’t be salvaged.
Using humidity meters and thermal-imaging cameras, our technicians also identify hidden water damage inside walls and floors. We address structural hazards, such as buckled ceilings, and establish a safe working environment.
2. Restoration Plan and Consultation
Based on our findings, we outline a restoration plan for your Arlington Heights property and explain each step so that you know what to expect. During the consultation, we answer any questions you might have and discuss your concerns.
3. Water Removal and Mitigation
Depending on the situation, we take care of water removal with specialized equipment. For example, our truck-mounted extraction equipment is highly effective in flooded basements, while we use advanced vacuuming tools to remove residual water. This initial mitigation work contains the damage and prevents it from spreading.
4. Debris Cleanup and Disposal
Extensive water damage often leaves behind general debris and unsalvageable materials, such as crumbled drywall and ruined carpets. Our teams haul everything off for safe disposal, adhering to all city regulations.
5. Applied Structural Drying
Throughout the mitigation phase, we run and closely monitor industrial-grade structural drying equipment. Our axial fans, centrifugal air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers greatly reduce the time needed to completely dry interiors.
6. Water Damage Remediation
With this step, our teams prepare your home or business for restoration.
Using safe, effective products, we scrub down surfaces and follow up with industry-proven sanitizing and deodorizing techniques. We also remove and remediate any mold from affected materials.
7. Final Restoration and Inspection
Our teams finish the restoration process by rebuilding walls, replacing floors and repairing ceilings. From baseboards and trim to crown molding, every detail is returned to its pre-loss condition.
We give all interiors a final cleanup, and then accompany you on a walk-through inspection. When we have your approval of our work, we consider the job a success.
