Once the water has been extracted and moisture measurements taken, the next step is dehumidification & drying.

Whether it be a broken pipe, flood waters entering your home, storm damage, or water from firefighter efforts, at Emergency Restoration Xperts (ERX), we offer professional water damage cleanup and services when water invades your home or business. Our water damage technicians are highly trained, certified, and follow the IICRC industry standards for professional water damage restoration.

There are several steps that are taken to resolve your water damage issue.

  • Step #1: Water Extraction– This step is taken as quickly as possible as it is imperative to salvage and restore as much as possible. The longer water sits, the more it will soak up into building materials, behind walls, and under floors. When water soaks into building materials, the chances of saving, restoring, and drying them is greatly reduced, while the chances of potential organic growth increase.
  • Step #2: Moisture Measurements– We don’t just assume something is dry enough by visual and touch. We take measurements of the moisture to determine whether additional steps are needed, which is almost always the case.
  • Step #3: Dehumidification & Drying– Dehumidification & drying is a process that requires professional water damage training and the use of specialized instruments. We are looking at both structural drying and building materials at this stage and getting humidity under control to avoid organic growth increase, namely mold.
  • Step #4: Contents Restoration– This often runs concurrently with the previous step as another team gets to work on salvaging as much of your belongings as possible.
  • Step #5: Disinfecting and Odor Neutralization– The goal is for you to have no lingering reminders of the disaster that took place, nor have any concerns about bacteria and other contaminants.

Reach out to us today if you have experienced water damage and we’ll quickly assess the situation and set up a plan to get your home or business back to normal.
