    Water damage restoration is necessary to restore a damaged house to its pre-flood condition.

    Any type of ruined property can be fixed, regardless of how the disaster occurred and how much damage exists.


First, you have to understand every step of the restoration process and how to complete each one.

Emergency Appointment

Decide if your flooding event involves a medical emergency or not. You may have an injury that requires a visit to an urgent care clinic or a hospital emergency room. Then, decide if you need to schedule an emergency appointment with a water damage restoration company.


Restoration work cannot be done if the professionals do not understand what the problems are and how serious they are. A professional needs to arrive at your home and analyze the structural damage from top to bottom.

A water damage assessment is necessary that includes identifying the type of contaminated water and the extent of the water damage.

Water Removal

First, the source of the flooding must be stopped to prevent further water damage. This may involve stopping a water leak from a broken pipe. Next, removing the remaining water is the most important step of water damage restoration.

Floodwater is likely to be contaminated with sewage, bacteria, viruses, or other toxins. Professional suction machines are required to remove large volumes of water.

Damage Assessment

Broken or damaged furniture, carpets, and electronics are considered to be debris. Before any item is removed, it must be properly assessed by an insurance claims adjuster or another professional to determine its cost. Its value is needed for the insurance company to compensate the homeowner for a repair or replacement.

Debris Removal

The debris needs to be removed for the floors, walls, and ceilings to be thoroughly cleaned. However, debris is often contaminated with bacteria from the floodwater and is too dangerous to move. It’s recommended that moving professionals be called to assist in debris removal.
