Steps in Hartford Water Damage Restoration
The first step in the Hartford water damage restoration process is an inspection. During the inspection the technicians will assess the damage to determine what needs to be done. The technician will provide the homeowner with a restoration plan and cost estimate. As soon as the plan is accepted the technicians will begin restoration work.
If there is any standing water it must be removed as quickly as possible. water can begin to cause mold to form very quickly so it is imperative that you take restoration action immediately. Water is removed and extracted from all affected areas. Dehumidifiers are used to control moisture in the air and promote the drying process. They work to remove moisture in the air and return warm, dry air which helps in the evaporation of moisture.
Technicians will monitor the progress of the drying process to ensure that the environment is drying out properly. Different types of materials dry differently and have varying drying times. For example, you may have wood floors, concrete and plaster and other wall materials. The temperature and humidity levels need to be monitored for optimal drying of all surfaces.
Repair and Replacement
Depending on the specific needs of the situation, carpets and flooring may need to be repaired or replaced after water damage. Once the water is removed and the rooms are dry an assessment can be done to see what damages remain. If mold has started to develop it must be found and remediated.
Sometimes parts of walls or moldings must be removed or repaired if they are damaged with mold. If mold isn’t adequately resolved it will continue to grow and spread. Therefore, it is essential that all areas are checked for mold and it is resolved. Mold may be cleaned or removed before it can become a danger to you or your family.
