The Start of Water Mitigation for Newport Structures

Initial actions taken when water damage occurs can be instrumental in reducing restoration time and costs for customers. Our emergency services for water damage combine multiple efforts, including: 

  • Water cleanup
  • Content cleaning
  • Surface drying
  • Water removal services
  • Water damage repairs 

Where Do Water Removal Services Start in Newport Houses?

Pooling water can be a considerable hazard for damaged homes and businesses. Without removing this surface water, absorption begins in porous elements like wood planks, carpets, and drywall. Extraction tools at our disposal help to quickly eliminate standing water. This is often a combination of vacuums, submersible pumps, weighted extractors, and wands. 

What is Water Cleanup in Newport Properties? 

The focus of water cleanup for damaged homes and businesses is thorough drying. Evaporative drying strategies can involve several tools working together to clear surface moisture, beginning with carefully placed centrifugal and axial air movers. Displaced water in the environment is collected with equipment like the desiccant and low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers in our inventory.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
