Water Removal Services Following Flooding in Dover Properties

Eliminating standing water is critical for protecting Dover homes and preventing unnecessary harm to installed building elements whenever possible. Saturation and absorption into porous materials can lead to mold development and integrity degradation, so we prioritize surface cleaning strategies that remove standing water with various processes like vacuuming, pumping, and absorbing. Wet vacuums are effective for this stage.

What Water Cleanup is Needed for Dover Homes?

One of the required steps in restoring a water-damaged home is thorough drying. The water cleanup process relies on the premier drying tools in our recovery inventory, beginning with our air movers and dehumidifiers. Evaporative drying impacts the relative humidity of the household, which can be regulated and managed with the appropriate placement of desiccant dehumidifiers where necessary. Specialty drying tools are also common, ranging from drying mats to positive pressure systems.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
