Step 1: Assessment and Inspection

Before we can restore your property, we’ll first inspect the damage done by the disaster. Assessing the degree of damage will help us create the perfect plan of action that will save your property from primary and secondary water damage. This step also tells us what class of water damage you’re facing.

  • Class 1 damage: Only a part of the room has absorbed little moisture. It’s the least level of damage.
  • Class 2 damage: Damage has affected the entire room. Surfaces like your carpets and walls have been drenched.
  • Class 3 damage: Considered as the worst type of damage. The water damage has absorbed up to the walls and saturated most of the area. Damage may have come through the ceiling.
  • Class 4 damage: Special drying techniques are needed to free the affected surface from potential water damage. These techniques are done on materials like hardwood, stone and concrete.

Step 2: Water Removal or Extraction
