Does Water Clean Up Start Immediately in Reading?
There is a finite restoration timeline for water damage events, regardless of the cause or source. Water cleanup often begins with removing the recognizable damage in the form of standing water or pooling. Extraction involves multiple tools in our inventory ranging from our portable wet vacuums to more powerful standing units and pumps.
What Tools Help Reading Homes Amid Flood Restoration?
Flooding of areas like the basement can be overwhelming for homeowners, especially when it threatens stored personal belongings or living spaces of the house. Addressing these concerns requires calculated cleaning and drying products or equipment. Efficient drying with air movers, dehumidifiers, and portable heaters can reduce the development of microbial threats. Likewise, cleaning surfaces with antimicrobial products help to prevent these occurrences and exposure to contaminants as water restoration continues.

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 determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete 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.
Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet or may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
