Restoration Process Explained in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala & Lake City, FL

Although professional water damage restoration is readily available, many property owners still choose to handle water disasters by themselves. Regardless of the reason, sticking to this option can lead to severe consequences.

Water damage that is not treated or removed properly can reactivate during the next plumbing problem, becoming more expensive to repair. Unresolved water damage puts you at a higher risk of encountering the following issues:

  • Wood rot
  • Mold and mildew
  • Poor home health
  • Water contamination
  • Severe property damage

Because of these risks, hiring professionals is necessary and worthwhile.

Water damage restoration might not be the cheapest solution, but there are practical reasons for each step. Unlike your typical cleaning techniques, this service uses a thorough restoration process designed to restore your property to its pre-loss condition effectively.

What You Can Expect

In a typical restoration job, technicians complete the following tasks:

Determine the Type of Water Damage You Encountered

The aftermath of every water disaster is unique,  so the experts will inspect the state of your property to determine the severity of the water damage. There are four classes of water damage, and each one is approached differently.

  • Class 1: This type creates the least amount of damage. Only a little moisture has been absorbed by the room.
  • Class 2: The catastrophe has affected the whole area. Your walls and flooring are also heavily drenched.
  • Class 3: This is the worst type of damage. Water has been absorbed up to the wall and has saturated the surroundings. It’s also possible that the damage has seeped through the ceiling.
  • Class 4: Special drying techniques and equipment are needed to prevent affected surfaces from succumbing to potential water damage. This approach is often used on materials like stone, hardwood, and concrete.

Water Extraction and Removal

After the class of the catastrophe is determined, the technicians will use powerful vacuums and pumps to remove the water from your property. Extracting the water will allow the affected area to dry quicker and make the restoration process easier

Drying

To ensure that your entire property is completely dry, the professionals will use air movers, dehumidifiers, and other unique drying methods to remove moisture even in hard-to-reach areas. They will focus on the following areas that tend to absorb or store a lot of water:

  • Narrow passageways
  • Tight corners
  • Upholstery and furniture
  • Cleanup and Decontamination

Once everything is dry, the experts can proceed to the cleanup. They will remove irreparable items from the building and send salvageable valuables to their contents restoration facility. They will also sanitize and decontaminate the surroundings to stop waterborne contaminants from thriving in your property.

Laura

Dreyer's is incredible! We experienced a busted pipe which led to water and mold damage. They were able to come out to the house, rip out what needed to come up, get everything dried out (which was no small feat), and treat the mold all in less than a week. At one point, I came back to the house (we were in an Airbnb) to get some things and was apparently pretty quiet because they didn't realize I...

Marcia

Dreyer's DKI was very responsive, coming to our home during a holiday weekend. They tore out all of our water-damaged flooring, drywall, and baseboard, and placed fans and dehumidifiers around the house. They also took my area rug and pad to have it cleaned. I'm only giving 4 stars because I don't have the rug back yet, so I don't know how it will look.
