What to Expect From Comprehensive Water Damage Restoration
Few homeowners have been able to avoid water damage of some form over their many years of homeownership. Damage may have been minimal or overwhelming, but by any definition, it’s a stressful situation. The key is to have a reliable restoration company on hand, where everything is being managed effectively, and damages are restored to the satisfaction of the homeowner.
At Matrix Remediation, water damage restoration is comprehensive from beginning to end. Every project is managed professionally. Every crew is trained and experienced in restoration work. And with every restoration, there’s a guarantee to meet (and often exceed) the condition of the original space. Turnaround time is quick, and workmanship is at the highest standard.
Today, new tools and techniques allow for the most effective water damage remediation. The aim is to restore a clean, safe environment for residents and/or occupants. It means that every job must be expedited quickly and effectively, without taking any shortcuts. This is also not the time for a “do-it-yourself” effort, or for contractors who have little or no experience and expertise.
Certified Water Damage Crews
Reputable water damage crews are professionally certified by IICRC – the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. Remediation is based on established industry standards that govern cleaning, remediation, and restoration. For the homeowner, certified crews means an assurance of high quality work.
Water Extraction Equipment
These days, water extraction equipment is powerful. As a first necessary step, water extraction is dramatically hastened, allowing for a more effective drying process. And where water damage is serious, water extraction units (including water pumps) work continuously to reduce water. This is a time when quick action is required.
Advanced Drying Equipment
Industrial air movers are essential for drying out any residual moisture in a ceiling, wall, or floor. As well, high performance dehumidifiers complete the drying process. Without question, drying is absolutely crucial to prevent further damage. In fact, quick reaction and successful drying will make a difference during restoration.
Moisture Detection Tools
Advanced moisture detection tools can detect, isolate, and measure moisture levels even behind walls and in hard-to-reach areas. Whether it’s a wall, ceiling, or floor, these moisture detection tools will identify even the most obscure moisture deposits – a critical cleanup procedure to avert any potential for future mold development.
Short Term Odour Control
Sometimes, with water damage, residual odour can be a problem. In situations like this, it’s key to eliminate any airborne contaminants, and to ensure that air quality is clean and safe. For the best results, “air scrubbing” equipment and eco-friendly products are used to ensure that the indoor air quality is at a high standard of acceptability.
Water damage restoration requires a professional approach, employing clean-up crews who are both experienced and proficient. This is a time for expert remediation - isolating the source of the damage; making the necessary repairs; and restoring the space to its original condition. It’s also the time to do it right from the start, and to avoid any future problems.
