No one ever is fully prepared for water damage in their home. But in reality, it is a very common occurrence. With some understanding of the water damage process from repairs through restoration, homeowners can minimize their stress and often restore their property faster and at a lower cost.
Not all water damage repair and restoration contractors will follow a predefined process that assures safety, effectiveness, and efficiency. Not all contractors will have specialized knowledge, training, experience, and equipment for managing water damage according to IICRC national standards.
What you are about to learn is a 6 stop process implemented by Armstrong Water Mold Cleanup & Restorations for getting the job done quickly, effectively, and at the lowest cost while adhering to IICRC national water damage, mold remediation, and restoration standards.
Armstrong's 6 Step Water Damage Repairs & Restoration Process
Identification and Elimination of the Water Damage Source
The initial phase involves a thorough analysis of the problem during a free inspection and estimate. With an agreement to provide services, we then take immediate steps to eliminate the source, safeguard your family and property, minimize damage and maximize your insurance claim benefit.
Analyze Hidden Structures for Water Damage
High-tech infrared thermal imaging is used to detect moisture and humidity behind building structures, moldings, and cabinets that are likely to be missed by visual inspection alone.
Protect Building Structures & Personal Property
Permanent damage to building structures and personal property is minimized or prevented through the use of methods that safely promote drying, dehumidify, and remove mold.
Structural Drying & Dehumidification
Industrial equipment is used during this phase to dehumidify and dry building structures, furnishings, and personal property where moisture, water vapor, and humidity is detected. The exact drying time requirements are determined during daily measurements.
Inspection and Testing for Mold
When evidence of mold is detected, mold remediation services are performed after validation through testing and recommendations by a 3rd party licensed and ACAC Certified Indoor Environmentalists (CIE) company.
During the restoration phase, your home is restored to its pre-loss condition. Besides replacement of discarded interior and exterior building structures, furnishings, and appliances, remodeling, repairs, cleaning, and deodorizing soft structures may all be part of restoring your property to better than new.
