At Kiser Construction, our certified contractors follow a fairly set process when restoring your home from water damage. By following this process, our restoration experts ensure every base is covered, so your home and family are protected from any damages or health issues.

Our licensed contractors are certified with the Institution of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to inspect and repair homes and other properties from water damage. Because of the associated health risks, it is highly encouraged that you seek professional work to remedy the situation.

Here is Kiser’s water damage restoration process!

1. Inspect Your Home or Property

With over 99% of U.S. counties affected by flooding, it is critical that you contact a restoration company if you notice water damage at your home or property. Acting quickly is necessary to prevent mold formation.

As soon as you call us, we will arrive on-site to inspect your property, where we will quickly assess the property to find heavily damaged or dangerous areas.

Common areas of damage can include:

●        Electrical equipment

●        Any printed material

●        Furniture items

●        Flooring

●        Items of sentimental value

One factor that will determine if an item can be salvaged is whether it is contaminated or clean. If you are dealing with materials like wood, paper, and fabrics, these are going to be more prone to take on water and increase the risk of mold.

The other consideration is how long the items have been wet, because the longer the article is soaked, the deeper the water penetration will go, making it more challenging to restore.

If we believe the water has made certain areas too dangerous to access, we will block them off so no one is injured. From there, we will create a plan to restore your property and speak with your insurance company to help you file your claim.

We will act as your advocate through the process and will do what we can to help you recover.

2. Remove Any Water

After we have helped you navigate your insurance and create a restoration plan, we will use our various vacuums and other heavy-duty pieces of equipment to quickly and safely remove the water from your property.

Having a prompt and thorough extraction of any remaining water will help reduce the amount of drying time involved. This is imperative because if the water is not removed promptly, mold and other types of bacteria can form, leading to adverse health effects. 3. Dry the PropertyOne thing to be aware of is that the walls or floors may look like they are dry when glancing at them after the water removal is completed.

But in most cases, they will still be wet and can cause internal materials to:

●        Grow mold

●        Break down

●        Warp

●        Swell up

After we have removed the water from your home or other property, we begin the drying process. This is typically the longest part of the entire restoration process. We use dehumidifiers, as well as other equipment, such as fans, to dry out the space.

We use moisture detection tools to determine if the moisture levels are safe for you to inhabit the property. If they are not safe, we recommend you stay away to conserve your health.

Though this part of the process takes the longest, it’s easily the most important, and we ensure the moisture is entirely gone or at a safe level before moving on with our process.

3. Expert Cleaning Methods

Any of the surfaces that come in contact with the water are going to need water damage cleanup, and once the moisture in your home is at a safe level or entirely gone, we will begin our restoration process.

Various methods may be required, including:

●        Abrasive cleaning

●        Wet cleaning

●        Dry cleaning

●        Spray and wipe

●        Foam cleaning

First, we will thoroughly clean anything that was damaged due to the water, which includes furniture, curtains, and rugs. Windows, clothing, and even kitchen appliances need to be cleaned prior to using them again due to the health risks with floodwater.

We also work to eliminate odors and make sure your house is sanitized to give you an optimal experience that you know has been thoroughly completed.

4. Restoration Work

This is one of the more critical steps, because if there are issues like insulation, carpet, or drywall replacement, these will all need to be completed with our water restoration process. We will repair any damage and ensure your home looks the same, if not better, than it did before your water leak.

Typically, with water damage, the severity of restoration ranges from simple fixes, such as repairing drywall to replacing entire walling sections or ceilings. The main goal is to restore your property to a state that makes it safe for you to occupy.
