The Flood Damage Restoration Process
Basement flooding requires a fast response to avoid extensive damage. With RestoreUnow, our team can be at your Bethesda home in less than an hour with state-of-the-art equipment that can quickly work to remove the water, dry your home, and restore it to pre-flood condition. Our process includes:
Water Inspection & Assessment
Our team can accurately assess the damage to your home using visual inspections and equipment like thermal cameras and moisture meters to determine the extent of the water infiltration. With that information, we can create an effective plan to combat the damage and restore your home.
Standing water needs to be removed as fast as possible to limit ongoing damage. We have powerful tools that can extract the majority of the water in very little time, including high-volume submersible pumps, commercial wet vacuums, and more. This reduces humidity and helps to stop mold from taking hold. We can handle any volume of water, from minor flooding to deep pools.
Flood water can carry any number of contaminants, from bacteria and viruses to oil and chemicals. We will rinse down the surfaces that were contaminated with 200-degree water to kill any microorganisms, and apply antimicrobial solutions if necessary, to sanitize hard-to-clean areas. We will make sure you are aware of any chemicals that were used, and we will give plenty of notice to keep your family and pets protected.
Any remaining moisture must be eliminated to prevent mold problems. We will use negative air machines, dehumidifiers, and desiccant dryers to reduce moisture levels to acceptable norms, and we will document the process through regular inspections and readings from our moisture meters.
Once moisture levels have stabilized, we can perform any repairs necessary to bring your home back to pre-flood condition, and we can work with your insurance company to help expedite the claim.
