Every water damage emergency varies in complexity, from the volume and type of water, including contamination. Each situation requires a different solution, but the overall process is typically the same. The steps listed below represent our process for “common” water damage services.
Water damage restoration begins with a phone call. Ark Restoration is available 24 hours a day providing water damage services, large or small. With water damage, fast action is essential. Even delaying a few hours can significantly increase the severity of the water damage.
When you call, a team member will ask relevant questions regarding your water damage disaster. Asking questions helps us determine what equipment and support to bring, including how many prepared water damage service technicians may be needed.
On-site water damage restoration services begin with a detailed investigation of your home or business, including a damage evaluation. Our team will now determine the scope of water damage so that we can develop an appropriate plan of action.
Water extraction removes the majority of the water. Ark Restoration uses powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons of water from your property if necessary. Removing water in bulk helps reduce drying time and prevents secondary damage like mold and bacterial growth.
After our team removes the standing water, we will begin drying your property. Materials such as walls, floors, and ceilings, may appear to be dry but a quick moisture inspection with our specialized equipment will show they are wet. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore hold water. This excess water can cause materials to decay, warp, or cause mold damage.
Personal property and the building structure may require extensive professional cleaning services. In addition to cleaning your property’s structure, we will clean your furniture, upholstery, and other restorable belongings that suffer water damage. Most flooding and water damage also require professional odor removal and deodorization services.
Ark Restoration has plenty of warehouse space dedicated to content processing during extensive water damage. We have enough secure storage where contents can be inventoried, cleaned and stored until it’s ready to be brought back to your property.
Most water damage services typically result in your insurance company getting involved. Ark Restoration is an expert when dealing with insurance carriers and is actually on may of thier preferred vendor programs. Water damage restoration services require extensive work and will need significant documentation. Furthermore, ARK uses the same insurance estimating software as the majority of the carriers, so pricing is consistent with industry standards.
