Water Damage Restoration

In severely water damaged buildings, a thermal hygrometer is used to monitor temperature and relative humidity. This allows the water damage technician to monitor the amount of moisture in the air and adjust drying equipment accordingly. We will wisely place necessary drying equipment through out the affected areas in order to properly and efficiently get rid moisture. All drying equipment will be removed when we are certain that your structure is completely dry, so you can rest assure all secondary damage is minimized.

Causes of Water Damage

Hidden and trapped moisture, if not discovered and promptly dried, is what causes most of the damage in a water damaged building. Sensitive moisture meters detect trapped and hidden moisture in and below the surface of building materials. A "Moisture meter" is also used to positively identify carpet and padding that is wet. Often the surface of the carpet will appear or feel dry but the padding and sub-floor below is saturated. This tool identifies these areas.Our professional certified technicians will use powerful and state of the art extracters to remove any unwanted water from your tiled, wood or laminate flooring in your business or your home.

Inspect the tiles, the grout, drain and visible plumbing. Confirm that all seals are tightened and dry. Be attentive to discolorations or soft areas around the bathtub walls.

Can the attic vents be a water damage "threat"?

Yes, but do not uninstall them. Vents are vital for proper attic ventilation and help circulating air and keep low humidity in the attic. However, vents must be inspected regularly.

I checked my attic insulation and it seems wet. How can I dry it and make sure it is still in good condition.

After being wet, most insulation is ineffective. However, it is hard to dry out insulation and therefore it will hold moisture for a while, creating high moisture conditions. It is strongly recommended to find and fix the leak source and replace all wet insulation.

I can see discoloration on the wall near my utility sink and the wall is getting softer. Does that mean a problem?

It is important to turn it on while using the bathroom and for 5-10 minutes afterwards.

What is air drying?

Air drying is the most common technique for dry out. Airflow will speed up evaporation by moving moisture-saturated air, allowing dry air to absorb moisture. This method is inexpensive drying since no special equipment is required. However, it is relatively slow.

My books where soaked in water. How can I salvage them?
