The steps include:
Water Damage Restoration Inspection and Assessment
The first step once we are at your home is to inspect the extent of the water damage.
Before we start any OK water damage repair, we must know what we are up against.
This step helps us to determine which methods we are going to use to clean your home. It also determines the tools that are to be used in the process.
We’re going to access both the extent of the damage and see what can be salvaged. Then we’re going to get you a financial estimate of the loss. This is important, especially if you have insurance for water damage, as we take an inventory of what can be saved vs. what must be scrapped.
We to use water sensing equipment to determine where there’s water in walls, floors, ceilings, and in other places like support beams. We need to know the full extent of the situation in order to properly create a gameplan to eliminate the water and restore the building to a proper condition.
Categorize and Classify The Water Damage And Determine Next Steps
The second step is to categorize and classify. Water is categorized into three: clean, grey and unsanitary water.
Clean water is a source likely inside the house. This is water you’d normally encounter, like water from a sink or tub.
Grey water is water that has hazards in it. These could be biological, chemical, or physical wastes. This is why it’s important to evacuate a property when water damage is present. Until we can classify the damage, we don’t know what unhealthy material might be in the water.
Unsanitary water (often called “black water”) can be raw sewage, harmful fungi or bacteria, or heavily polluted water. The primary concern is health issues when a person is around this type of water. This water is known to actively hurt humans and created long term health issues. It can also severely impact a property if not treated immediately.
These categories help to identify the water that has led to damage. Clean water comes from broken pipes and faucets. On the other hand, grey water is that which has been used. A good example is soapy water from dishwashers. Finally, unsanitary water comes from sewage, leaking toilets with feces and floods to name a few.
Before administering any emergency water damage service, we also have to classify the water damage and determine how to best repair it.
There are four major factors we consider: a slow rate of evaporation, fast rate of evaporation, the fastest rate of evaporation and specialty drying services.
These factors are determined by the type of material that the water is in contact with.
Remove Any Debris Or Material In The Area
Unfortunately, most properties that have water damage have lots of wet and likely moldy items or materials. This could be anything from carpet, wood flooring, or personal items that are no longer safe to be around.

Thankfully, most personal items that are not physically attached to a structure can be dried out and are just fine. In the case of grey or black water, personal items might need to be discarded if they’re found to be contaminated. This is to prevent long term health issues.
Extraction and Dehumidifying The Water And Drying Out The Area
This step is straightforward. We remove water from carpet, other surfaces and your home in general. We also remove all the items that have been damaged beyond repair. After this, we dehumidify the premises to ensure that you are free of any remedial moisture.
