How Does Water Clean Up Begin in Wheeling?

The initial mitigation actions that professionals take upon arrival to water-damaged properties often have the biggest impact on restoration's ultimate time and cost. Situations like burst pipes or appliance malfunctions can have far-reaching effects on the structure, spreading water quickly to less accessible areas. Water clean up services involve several practices to deploy evaporative drying tools in our inventory, such as positive pressure systems, air movers, and dehumidification equipment. 

Can Wheeling Homes Get Dry After Burst Pipes?

Burst pipes can allow for moisture and water to migrate into structural cavities and ceiling systems without fast action. With a general contractor license, we can repair the damaged portion of plumbing and provide access for advanced drying tools to reach trapped moisture in wall systems.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
