11 Critical Water Damage Assessment Steps

Just experienced water damage? Don’t wait until it’s too late. Once water infiltrates your home, we have to take the right steps to prevent any further damage from happening. Otherwise, you could be facing costly repairs down the line.

The most important part of our water damage assessment process is water mitigation, which includes stopping the water source, identifying the water type, removing the water, and salvaging furniture.

Here is a explanation of our water damage assessment steps:

1. Find and Stop the Water Source

The first and most important step in our assessment process is to find and stop the water. If the water damage is coming from a burst pipe or appliance, we will shut off the water and turn off the appliance to stop more water from accumulating.

2. Identify the Type of Water Damage

Next, our team will identify the type of water category and classification to determine the best way to approach cleanup. Types of contamination include Category One, Two, and Three. Water classified as Category Two or Three means the water contains harmful pollutants or heavy metals.

3. Survey the Severity of Water Damage and Inspect the Property

After we have determined the water type and classification, we will survey the severity of water damage on your property. Performing a water damage inspection allows us to come up with an action plan that best fits your water damage situation. We will also look for any safety concerns such as lead or asbestos.

4. Move or Block Furniture

Your furniture is a central part of your home. This is why we do everything we can to salvage your belongings and save your furniture from water damage. You can expect the Dry Force team to either move or block any furniture to prevent it from staining or rusting.

5. Inspect Damaged Components

Water that comes in contact with electrical components is a recipe for an electrical fire. When our team assesses the water damage in your home, we will take a look and address any electrical hazards, broken appliances, or damaged flooring.

6. Our Team Will Take Photos

As our team is creating a water damage estimate for your property, our technicians will take ample photos. We do this to document the disaster and provide said documentation to you at the end of the service. Photos can also be incredibly beneficial to property managers and insurance companies.

7. Suggested Repairs

What area of your property saw the most damage? We consider this when determining what repairs are necessary. Our team may need to replace your carpet, flooring, or even walls to ensure all of the damage has been addressed.

8. Water Removal

Once we have made the suggested repairs, we will get to work on removing all water from your property. Our team of professionals offer exceptional water damage assessments and restoration services in San Antonio, TX and will utilize high-powered fans to remove excess moisture in your house.

We will also use heavy-duty vacuums to eliminate all standing water and moisture from your home, leaving no chance of mold growth.

9. Cleaning

Dry Force thoroughly cleans and disinfects your property following water removal. We will use a specially formulated disinfectant solution to kill any germs or harmful bacteria left over from damage caused by Gray or Black water.

10. Drying

We are almost at the finish line. Dry Force uses powerful fans to dry your home from any lingering moisture. Our team may use ceiling fans and dehumidifiers as well as open up windows for extra airflow and drying power.

11. Structural Repairs

Once the previous steps are complete, our team will get to work on repairing and reconstructing your home in Houston, TX back to its original condition. This is the part where we will remove walls, floors, ceilings, and anything else that may have been damaged by the water.
