Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Step 2 – Assessment of the Damage
Our experienced and trustworthy crew will arrive on the scene as soon as possible to not only bring you peace of mind, but inspect the property’s water damage, determining all aspects of the water damage. They will use special equipment to take moisture measurements, determine the category and class of the water damage, and see just how much of the home was affected by the water damage. This is crucial to setting up a specific plan for your home, in hopes to prevent any further damage and dry the home as fast as possible.
Identify and Stop the Water Source
We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.
- Stop the Source
- Check for Contaminated Water
Identify the Type of Water
We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure our professionals restore your property based on industry guidelines. The level of contamination of the water will affect the specific restoration processes we use.

- Category 3: "Black Water"
Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises
We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident. If there are any safety issues like lead or asbestos, please bring them to our attention.
