Like our other restoration services, our certified contractors follow a fairly set process when restoring your home from water damage. By following this process, we ensure every base is covered, so your home and family are protected from any damages or health issues. At Kiser Construction, 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 health risks associated with water damage, 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
As soon as you notice water damage at your home or property, it’s critical you contact a restoration company before the water forms mold. As soon as you call us, we will arrive on-site to inspect your property, where we’ll quickly assess the property to find heavily damaged or dangerous areas. If we believe the water has made certain areas too dangerous to access, we’ll 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 at all times 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. If the water just sits there, mold and other types of bacteria can form, which can lead to adverse health effects.
3. Dry the Property
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 then use moisture detection tools to determine if the moisture levels are safe for you to inhabit the property. If they’re 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.
4. Begin Cleaning and Restoring
Once the moisture in your home is at a safe level or entirely gone, we will begin our restoration process. First, we will thoroughly clean anything that was damaged due to the water, which includes furniture. After everything is cleaned, 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.
