Our 7-Step Emergency Flood Cleanup Process for Highland Park
1. Flood Damage Assessment
Our teams arrive at your flooded home or business, fully equipped and ready to work. We quickly inspect the property and assess the full extent of damage.
If necessary, we board up broken windows and tarp storm-damaged roofs.
2. Action Plan Outline
Based on our damage assessment, we outline a plan for each phase of cleanup and restoration, as well as a proposed timetable for job completion.
We review our action plan with you so that you know what to expect during each step of the process. Our teams appreciate your input and address any concerns you may have.
3. Immediate Floodwater Extraction
Floodwater removal begins immediately. Our extraction systems are heavy-duty, truck-mounted and highly efficient. This step quickly removes water from basements, crawlspaces and other flooded areas.
After pumping out standing water, we take care of residual water with specialized vacuum equipment.
4. Emergency Damage Mitigation
Next, we clear out debris and contain secondary damages. Our emergency mitigation includes addressing structural issues, such as crumbling drywall, buckled ceilings and warped flooring.
As our technicians work, they identify salvageable contents that can be cleaned on-site or packed out for restoration and storage at our climate-controlled facilities.
5. Monitored Structural Drying
During the mitigation phase, our teams set up and monitor industrial-grade drying equipment. Centrifugal air movers and axial fans run 24/7.
Our arsenal of drying equipment includes high-volume dehumidifiers and hardwood floor drying systems. We closely track the drying process using electromagnetic sensors and advanced moisture detectors.
6. Pre-Restoration Remediation
Our flood damage remediation process preps all affected interiors for final restoration.
Surfaces are rigorously cleaned and sanitized, using safe, effective products. We also use special mold removal techniques that eliminate all fungal growth and deodorizing techniques that renew indoor air quality.
7. Detailed Property Flood Restoration
With this last step, our technicians restore your Highland Park property to its pre-flood condition. We replace torn-out walls, collapsed ceilings and flood-damaged floors. Everything, from baseboards to trim, is taken care of with professional attention to detail.
When we’re done, we ask you to take a close look at our work. When we have your final approval, we thank you for the opportunity to have made a positive difference.
