  • When water damage takes place, contacting a professional quickly is of the utmost importance. Water damage restoration teams know how to quickly address issues on your property that would otherwise go unnoticed and lead to serious structural issues down the line.

    Once you call us, we begin documenting the damage to your property. This helps us better understand how the damage was caused and what techniques we’ll need to use to remediate it. It also gives us an opportunity to identify hidden areas of damage. Finally, our documentation can be used when you file an insurance claim.

  • After identifying all the damage to your property, we begin the extraction process. We use industrial vacuums and pumps to remove water from your property. During this process, we also dispose of any furniture, carpets, and bits of drywall that have been damaged beyond repair. We also take great care in disposing of contaminated water so we don’t damage local ecology like the Tennessee River or Prentice Cooper State Forest.

  • Next, we set out to fully dry the property using dehumidifiers and fans. This step is particularly important in a humid climate like Chattanooga, where Mold growth can happen in as little as a day.

    Finally, we clean your property using deep cleaning techniques that kill Mold and bacteria. We also deodorize the property to improve air quality and eliminate any lingering Mold spores that have taken flight.

FAQs About Water Damage Restoration in Chattanooga

What steps should I take when experiencing water damage on my property?

If you find yourself facing water damage on your property, it's essential to take immediate action. Here are the steps you should follow:

  1. Assess the situation for safety: Identify the source of water and turn off the main water supply if possible. Be cautious of any electrical hazards and shut off power to affected areas.
  2. Call a certified water damage restoration company: These professionals have the expertise, equipment, and knowledge needed to handle the cleanup process effectively.
  3. Document the damage by taking clear photographs and videos of the affected areas: This evidence will be crucial for insurance claims and to keep track of the restoration progress.
  4. Remove any standing water using buckets, mops, or wet vacuums: Open windows and use fans for ventilation, and utilize dehumidifiers to minimize moisture levels.
  5. Salvage and protect valuables: Use plastic sheets or tarps to cover furniture and other belongings.
  6. Begin the drying process: Focus on drying saturated materials such as carpets, walls, and furniture. Thoroughly air them out and use dehumidifiers to aid in the drying process.
  7. Take precautions to prevent Mold growth: Ensure proper ventilation, clean and dry affected areas thoroughly, and consider using mildewcides or Mold inhibitors.
  8. Hire professionals to assess any structural damage: This will help identify any underlying issues and structural damage that may need to be addressed.
  9. Repair and restore damaged areas with the help of professionals: Their expertise will ensure the restoration process is done correctly and efficiently.
  10. Inform and consult your insurance company about the water damage incident: Follow their instructions and keep thorough records of all communications, invoices, and receipts associated with the restoration process.

By following these steps, you can effectively address water damage in your property and minimize potential long-term consequences. The key is to act quickly and seek professional assistance to ensure a successful resolution.
