Water Extraction

Removal of water is the first step in the water restoration process. Professionals have large pumps that will remove the water quickly from your home. Time is of great importance. Once the water is removed, high powered fans will be placed strategically to begin the drying phase. This is the crucial phase, as any water that is left could turn to mold and mildew. Special infrared equipment is used to see water the unaided I cannot. Without the proper equipment, your home could become a breeding ground for mold. Mold is very dangerous and can affect your health.  Once all water is removed, water restoration starts.
