The Water Damage Restoration Process

Understanding the water damage restoration process is particularly important for residents of Sioux Falls, where water damage is common. Thanks to frigid winters and heavy snowfall, roof leaks and frozen pipes can cause severe water damage in the region, and do every year. Here is a basic overview of how we carry out water damage restoration.

Step 1: Assessing Source and Extent of Water Damage

Water damage restoration begins with an exhaustive assessment. Our team uses moisture detection tools, such as thermal imaging cameras, to detect hidden areas of water damage or mold growth and create an action plan to eliminate or mitigate future damage.

Step 2: Extracting Water from Your Property

Following our evaluation, our team will utilize industrial pumps and vacuums to extract any remaining moisture from your property. Any saturated materials beyond repair will also be removed to avoid further damage to nearby materials. During the extraction process, specialized tools will be utilized to track any remaining moisture spots within affected areas to ensure a comprehensive restoration project is undertaken.

Step 3: Removing Excess Moisture

Even after water removal has taken place, your property could still contain excess moisture. Our team uses industrial dehumidifiers and dryers to ensure your property has been completely dried. This step is key in preventing mold spore formation as well as returning it back to its original condition.

Step 4: Cleaning Affected Areas

Our team will disinfect the affected areas to protect them from mold growth and improve air quality, using surface and deep cleansing, odor removal, and air quality improvement techniques. While we try our best to salvage as much property as possible for repair purposes, some items may no longer be repairable.
