Water Extraction is the First Step for Restoration Services in Oakland Park
The first step to recovering after a flood is extracting the water. Flood water can be tricky because often it often comes in through door cracks or other openings in the building’s structure. However, if the flood is from a roof leak, chances are the water is a bit cleaner. For safety purposes, it’s not ideal to clean the water alone. Of course, try to get your valuables out but leave the rest for a restoration professional. At Tri-County All Restorations, we have the appropriate tools to extract the liquid quickly.
Dry the Home or Office
Next, we focus on drying the space. We use the most advanced technology and techniques to ensure each surface and effected item is thoroughly dried. The last thing you’ll want is for moisture to be sticking around. The leftover moisture could cause mold, and that would cause another frustrating experience. If the water damage has destroyed the frame of the structure, we may implement other techniques.
Clean the Space
If the flood water is hazardous, we need to clean the space to ensure you and your family or employees are safe. Drying isn’t enough when danger is in the air. We assess each situation uniquely and move forward depending on what we find. Cleaning a space is a sure way to make sure you return to your property the way you originally had it.
Once we’ve extracted and dried to area, we’ll use our thermal imaging techniques to measure and assess the surface’s temperatures. Thermal imaging can tell if an area is wet. Even if you thought the space was dry, thermal imaging may say something different!
At Tri-County All Restorations, we do a thorough job of ensuring that your property is safe and secure before we leave. We don’t want any other issues to come up regarding your current devastation. That’s why we’ll take our time to appropriately assess and repair anything that has been ruined. When you hire our team, you don’t have to worry about poor craftsmanship or insufficient work. Instead, you can rest at ease knowing that your property damage is being handled with care.
