What To Expect During Storm Restoration

When a thunderstorm or other extreme weather hits Kettle Corner,RI, its effects can be swift and catastrophic. After the dust settles and you enlist the help of a local storm restoration company, here's what you can expect during the cleanup process, from planning and tear out to repairs.

1. Planning

First things first, the water damage experts will assess the situation and formulate a plan for cleanup. As they work to identify the full extent of the damage and the best strategies for restoration, they'll likely look for signs of mold as well.

2. Water Removal

Next, they'll find and cut off the water source if it's still allowing unwanted H20 into your home. Then they'll remove any standing water. If the water is coming from behind the walls, drywall tear out may be necessary to put a stop to it once and for all. All wet materials will be disposed of properly.

3. Dry-Out

Once the water is contained, the water cleanup crew will begin drying out the affected area. Often, this involves the use of industrial-grade fans and dehumidifiers. On the downside, they will likely be loud, and they will likely need to run 24/7. On the upside, they'll dry your home safely and quickly.

4. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Once things are dry, the storm cleanup team will clean the affected area using one or more of several different cleaning methods, such as dry cleaning, spray and wipe sanitization, and immersion cleaning. The exact type of cleaning that is used depends on the water damage itself. In some cases, air scrubbers may be employed to rid your residence of musty, water-related odors.

5. Repairs

Most restoration companies will complete minor repairs after cleanup. These may include tasks such as painting, drywall installation, and carpet replacement.
Virtually no one looks forward to a drywall tear out or playing host to a pair of industrial grade dehumidifiers for the weekend. When a storm threatens the sanctity of your Kettle Corner,RI, home, recruiting the aid of an experienced storm restoration service can help you get back on your feet as fast as possible.
