What Happens Next? The Water Damage Restoration Process
1. Immediate Inspection Our technicians will quickly determine the extent of the damage utilizing specialized equipment. With infrared cameras and moisture meters, they can detect hidden water in walls, floors, and ceilings, and determine moisture levels. The technicians will determine which items are salvageable, which may need repairs, and whether the carpet can dry in-place or needs to be removed for cleaning. They will create a detailed drying plan to safely remove moisture as quickly and economically as possible.
At this point, you may take advantage of our inventory and pack-out services, in which we pack out your possessions, store, and clean them.
2. Industrial Grade Drying
Technicians will begin with water extraction, using powerful, truck-mounted equipment to remove standing water. Specialized drying equipment such as dehumidifiers and air movers will be installed to speed the dehumidification process. Dehumidification of floors, walls, and other structures is especially important, as it helps prevent mold growth and lasting secondary water damage. Technicians will carefully monitor the drying process, record moisture levels, and make necessary adjustments until Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) has been reached. Finally in case of sewage leak, the Anouman’s sewage cleanup and decontamination team will be there to take care of this matter.
3. Repairs, Sanitization, Deodorization
After your property is dry, it will be inspected to determine if further structural repairs, sanitization, or deodorization are necessary. The odors of water damage will naturally fade as the drying process comes to an end, but in special cases, technicians may use specialized equipment to eliminate lingering odors. Should mold be detected, Anouman’s has trained mold remediation specialists who will work quickly to clean and sanitize your space. Anouman’s have also trained
Your possessions may also be in need of specialized repair. We offer document restoration, business equipment restoration, and electronics restoration.
4. Cleaning and Carpet Reinstallation
At this point, Anouman’s technicians will reinstall your carpet, if it was removed for cleaning. Or, if your carpet was dried in place, they will perform a full carpet cleaning, including appropriate deodorization and disinfection. In addition to carpets, Anouman’s has the expertise to thoroughly clean your natural stone, upholstery, tile, and other surfaces affected by water damage.
* Most Anouman’s locations are fully certified and use many of these tools, there are a few exceptions, but in those cases, industry-standard practices are employed.
