What To Expect During Storm Damage Restoration

Storms can have a significant effect on your Crowley, TX business, especially if there is flooding involved. Water damage isn’t confined to just the physical appearance of the walls, floors, and furniture; floodwater can also carry pathogens and harmful bacteria. Proper storm restoration, including the need to tear out of damaged materials, can help restore the appearance of your building as well as mitigate the risk of mold and other harmful substances that can make you and your employees sick. The best way to ensure your Crowley, TX business is ready to reopen after a storm is to trust experienced trained experts to carry out each step of the restoration process.

1. Extraction of Water

If a storm leaves your building flooded, the first thing to do is remove the water. Timing is extremely important; extracting the water as quickly as possible is key to reducing the amount of damage. Generally, restoration experts will use professional-grade equipment to remove the water safely and completely.

2. Tear Out Wet Materials

Depending on the level of flooding, there may be materials that are too compromised to save. In this case, a restoration crew will tear out wet materials to avoid contamination and prepare to return your building to its normal appearance.

3. Dry Out Materials and Structural Components

Restoration professionals usually have special tools and equipment to hasten drying time for floors, walls, and internal structural components. Once excess water is removed, it can still take awhile to get all the moisture out of the hidden parts of your building, such as the carpet mats and wall studs. A thorough drying process is essential to reduce the risk of mold.

4. Final Restoration

Once the water is removed, the tearing out of damaged materials is complete, and everything is dry again, the crew can complete the final touches on your storm restoration. The water damage to your building may require upholstery and fabric cleaning along with odor control procedures to ensure the best results.
