The water damage cleaning process can be confusing to some customers. There are several people involved, lots of equipment, and crews coming in and out of your home. Here’s what you can expect:
An Initial On-Site Water Damage Assessment
Our technician will walk your damaged property with you and point out what’s happened and what needs to be done. The assessment outlines all noticeable water damage and lays out a restoration protocol we’ll follow. With this assessment will be a full breakdown of the costs (in writing) associated with our water damage restoration services.
Content Removal & Moisture Testing
Should you want to move forward with our company once you’ve received our estimate, we can begin the process of clearing out the effected space so that we can get to work. We’ll pack out these items and put them through a content restoration process to try and salvage them. We’ll then use moisture detection equipment to determine what areas have been soaked as well as determine acceptable moisture levels by testing unaffected areas.
Getting out as much surface water as possible is extremely important. In most cases, our equipment can remove 97% of the water that has damaged your home or office. Depending on the type of surfaces that have been water damaged, we use various types of water extraction tools that suck up moisture and dispose of it outside your property.
Structural Drying & Dehumidification
While we can extract the majority of water with our water removal equipment, some moisture will require time to dry out. We use air movers and position them throughout your property so that they can pass dry, hot air over floors, carpets, walls, or ceilings and rapidly dry them out. To catch any water vapors that escape during the process, we implement dehumidification systems to capture and exhaust evaporated water so that it doesn’t stick around and find a home somewhere else in your property’s structure!
Too many words? No problem, we understand, you’re busy, probably stressed, and need to make a decision quickly. But before you do, educate yourself about the water damage repair process. We feel strongly that an educated customer is an empowered customer, and an empowered customer gets the excellent service they deserve! So please watch the video below so you can know the basic steps to expect should you hire our DC water damage restoration contractors:
If your insurance policy covers the loss, we would encourage you to run the project through your insurer. But that doesn’t mean it’s their job to spearhead the process. Here’s some things you should know if you plan on filing a claim.
Most people just assume they can’t get any work done without a claim number. The truth is it’s your obligation to protect your home, and doing so quickly will ultimately save the insurance company money because less damage will occur. A claim can be filed early on during the process, but it doesn’t need to be the first thing. So do not hesitate to call us or another DC water mitigation company so that the containment & extraction process can begin before other areas of your home get ruined.
You always get to decide who does the work.
If you do call your adjuster, they’re likely to tell you to call XYZ company. Here’s what you need to know about that referring company…they got the referral because they promised to discount their water cleanup services dramatically. We’re homeowners ourselves and we’ve never had any luck getting great service from a company that offers the cheapest rates possible, and in our experience in the water damage space, the same can be said.
You get to decide who you want to work with and are in no way obligated to use the water damage restoration company your insurance adjuster might refer you to. We believe you deserve a company that treats you like the customer, not your insurance company!
You need an ally when it comes the claim amount.
Insurers, especially some companies, go to great lengths to minimize the number of claims they payout on and the claim amounts for those they do. If you don’t have a water mitigation company in your corner, you may very well get pushed around in that process and end up having to foot the bill on a portion of the service provided. We make sure that doesn’t happen!
If you have a water emergency that you think may be effecting your main sewage line check the District’s water emergency resources.
