Next Steps After Water Damage
After you call our team in Albuquerque, we’ll begin your water assessment within one hour or less. We’ll quickly determine the source and extent of your water damage and begin repairing and restoring the affected areas. You want to return your home or business to normal as fast as possible to prevent further damage or mold formation—and we’re here to help.
Our assessments generally take less than one hour, depending on your amount of water damage cleanup. Once we determine a plan of action for repair and restoration, we begin working immediately. If you have homeowner’s or flood insurance, we also work directly with your insurance company to handle claims. We use the same damage estimation software as insurance companies, which streamlines the costs and accurately bills your provider.
24/7 Emergency Service
Water disaster often hit when you least expect it, which is why we offer 24/7 water disaster emergency services. Our expert technicians are available to you any day, at any time. We know how damaging water can be to your home or business, and a day spent waiting can make a negative impact. Which is why our team starts working immediately after your call to help repair damage. At Water Extraction Experts, we aim to answer calls during weekends, evenings, and early mornings.
By calling and acting within 48 hours, our team can help:
- Save your carpet or flooring
- Dry the water damaged area and prevent mold growth
- Find the water source and decrease further damage
- Remove irreparable waterlogged materials
- Repair water leaks and begin restoration
Once we assess your water damage, we provide an estimate and work with you to make a restoration action plan. Depending on the level of destruction your home or business suffered, the dryout and restoration time has taken anywhere from two to twenty-two days. After seeing your specific damage, we can give a much more accurate timeline.
Water extraction and drying out the area are the first steps of restoration. Our truck-mounted systems and specialized pumps will remove any standing water. After the standing water has been extracted from your home, we then remove excess humidity with technical equipment to speed up drying.
For every home or business, the amount of water damage determines what equipment we decide to use and how fast your structures need to be dried.
After the affected area is completely dry, we perform another inspection. This assessment determines whether additional structural repairs, sanitation, or deodorization is necessary. While odors fade naturally as materials dry, we occasionally use trusted equipment to flush out lingering odors.
If your water damage was untreated for more than 48 hours, you may need a mold inspection and removal. After water removal and dryout, we check for signs of mold and completely clean and sanitize any area that was submerged in water. This process not only stops mold from growing, but also helps with odor removal.
Water damage shouldn’t ruin your home and schedule, so we take strides to work with your timeline to remove water as rapidly as possible. No matter the project, we treat your home or business with respect, as if it were our own.
Following water removal and structural drying, we then move on to reconstruction. This process may take anywhere from two weeks to one month and can include replacing drywall, ceilings, baseboards, and flooring (if damaged beyond repair).
There is no all-inclusive list for water damage cleanup and rebuilding. Some homes may need a minor roof repair and new drywall. Other damaged buildings require much more extensive structural cleanup and reconstruction.
No matter the damage, our team collaborates with the best contractors to complete your restoration. From start to end, we ensure every project is finished correctly and are always the last team to sign off on any repair work.
Water Leak Detection
Sometimes the source of a water leak is not obvious and can cause unseen damage. We get to the root of the problem using professional water leak detection equipment. By determining moisture levels and learning about the internal structures of your home or business, we can trace the water, stop the leak, and repair any damage along the way.
Restore your home or business as quickly as possible, without the headache of hiring multiple companies or contractors. Give a call today for your free water damage assessment, and we’ll help make your water damage history.
