Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
When responding to a water damage emergencies from flooded basements, to broken pipes and appliances that leak, we begin with a detailed inspection of your home or property, including a damage assessment. The damage assessment includes checking the source of moisture, identifying the category and classification of water, determining the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to and moving furniture and property contents to help prevent rust or furniture stains on wet carpet.
At the damage assessment stage, our professionals determine the scope of work so we can develop an appropriate plan of action.
