Does Water Clean Up Start Immediately in Reading?
There is a finite restoration timeline for water damage events, regardless of the cause or source. Water cleanup often begins with removing the recognizable damage in the form of standing water or pooling. Extraction involves multiple tools in our inventory ranging from our portable wet vacuums to more powerful standing units and pumps.
What Tools Help Reading Homes Amid Flood Restoration?
Flooding of areas like the basement can be overwhelming for homeowners, especially when it threatens stored personal belongings or living spaces of the house. Addressing these concerns requires calculated cleaning and drying products or equipment. Efficient drying with air movers, dehumidifiers, and portable heaters can reduce the development of microbial threats. Likewise, cleaning surfaces with antimicrobial products help to prevent these occurrences and exposure to contaminants as water restoration continues.

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.
When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
