The Process

About Water damage restoration process

Here’s a look at how it typically unfolds:

1
Additional Water Extraction

Depending on the extent of the damage, the process might involve using portable extractors to eliminate excess water from soaked carpets. If the carpet is assessed and deemed salvageable, this method is pursued. However, in more severe instances, the carpet may need to be completely removed and discarded.

2
Demolition & Debris Removal

Often in situations of water damage, it becomes necessary to remove certain building materials that are beyond salvage. Before the drying phase begins, materials like drywall may be taken out to expose wall cavities, and carpeting might be removed to reveal the subflooring. This step ensures a more thorough and efficient drying of the affected areas.

3
Final Dry Out

After the removal process, DryWorx will coordinate the strategic placement of air movers throughout the property to enhance drying. Dehumidifiers will also be set up to extract moisture from the atmosphere. With an effective drying strategy in place, it’s often possible for the property to be completely dried out in just a matter of days.

4
Antimicrobial Application

In some water damage situations, fungal and mold growth may be a concern. Under the right circumstances, it can take as little as 24 hours for mold to begin growing, so whether it’s out of caution or out of necessity, a restoration company may deem it necessary to apply antimicrobials to prevent mold growth or destroy existing mold spores.

5
Contents Restoration

Though any type of property damage has the potential to ruin certain belongings, contents restoration technologies have advanced to a point today where many items are also salvageable. Dryworx will remove save-able contents such as textiles, clothes, hard goods, photos, electronics and more, and take them off site to restore.

6
Reconstruction & Build Back

The final step of the restoration process typically involves moisture testing to verify dryness, and then construction services to build back the building structure that was removed. This could include electrical, plumbing, drywall, finish materials, etc.

The cost of fixing water damage can vary widely depending on several factors:

  1. Extent of Damage: A small leak confined to a limited area will generally be less expensive to address than widespread flooding damage.
  2. Affected Materials: Some materials, like hardwood or specialty carpets, can be more expensive to repair or replace than others.
  3. Size of the Area: Larger affected areas typically mean more labor and materials, which can increase costs.
  4. Depth of Water: The depth of the standing water can affect the duration of extraction and the extent of damage, influencing costs.
  5. Contamination Level: Clean water from a burst pipe is easier to handle than water from sources like sewage backups, which require additional sanitization.
  6. Mold Growth: If mold remediation is required, this can add to the cost.
  7. Geographical Location: Prices for labor and materials may differ depending on where you’re located.

Given these variables, it’s essential to have a professional from DryWorx assess the situation to provide a detailed estimate. We strive to offer competitive pricing while ensuring the highest quality of service.

Yes, flood damage and prolonged exposure to water can create the ideal conditions for mold growth. Mold spores are always present in the environment, but they need moisture to grow and colonize. When areas in a property remain damp or wet, it fosters an environment conducive for mold to thrive. If left untreated, mold can develop within 24 to 48 hours of water exposure. Mold can not only damage property and belongings but also pose potential health risks. It’s crucial to address water damage promptly and ensure the affected areas are thoroughly dried to prevent mold proliferation.
