Water Damage Restoration Process in Longmont, CO
Regardless of how much water damage was inside your home, during the water damage restoration process our goal is to return your home to its pre-loss condition. This process starts with an inspection of the damage, including determining the type of water damage under the four class standards. Next is extracting the water from affected areas along with removing unsalvageable personal items like furniture, electronics, and clothing. From there, we use the method of drying and dehumidification most appropriate for your home and situation to further the process. Overall, the water damage restoration process can take several days or more than a week.
After either seeing water damage first hand to your home or finding it, first and foremost make sure the area is structurally sound. If water lingered enough to be soaked up by wooden supports and caused any kind of damage to walls, rafters, and beams, a collapse could be possible. Should it be safe to enter the area, keep the power off until an electrician can inspect the wiring.
Make a list of personal property that was damaged by the water, even those that were lost. We recommend making an inventory of all personal property prior to a water damage event, and to include the purchase date and value with receipts. Not only will this help you remember what you have, but it will help in the insurance claim process. Photographing the items before and after is also recommended.
Protect yourself by wearing gloves and boots when cleaning and disinfecting the damaged areas. Mold can be prevented by removing any wet items immediately.
