Assessing the Damage to your Home from Water Damage Restoration

Water damage can happen in your home or business due to several factors, including a leaky roof or burst pipes. Regardless of the source of water damage, it is important to act fast to contain and control the problem.

You can talk with a company such as The Gibraltar Company to appoint reliable & safe water damage professionals that are trained to restore the property to its original condition. They will assess the damage, determine what caused it, and then give you a price for their services to restore your property.

The water restoration company will assess the extent of your water damage and give you a rating from one to four. One room or an area with minimal water damage, called level one, is a place where the carpet is not saturated.  

The water damage restoration team must determine not only the extent of the damages to your home but also the degree of water contamination. 

After these assessments have been made, the water damage restoration team will begin to remove the water. This could involve pumping out standing water from the home and sucking out the water from the flooring and carpet.  

After drying, deodorizing, and sanitizing the equipment, they will leave it in place for a few more days so that the moisture and temperature levels can be restored to normal. They will assess the home again after two to three days. If the equipment reaches pre-water damage dryness it is removed and your house is restored.
