The process of water damage restoration is essentially an attempt to salvage property after a leak or a flood. The restoration process can take as little as an afternoon or several days, depending on the amount of water exposed and the time lapse in between the damage and the clean up.
DC Carpet Cleaning's water damage technicians begin the process by extracting water. This is the most essential step and should be taken care of immediately. The longer water sits (any amount of water), the more the chances are of mold, mildew, and bacterial development. Water damage in basements is doubly concerning because basements are humid already. When this humidity is combined with water, the chances of mold, mildew, and bacterial development are doubled.
After the water is removed our technicians will begin the process of salvaging property, finding hidden pockets of saturation, and sanitation/deodorization.
We also treat fire and smoke damage as well. It goes without saying that DC Carpet Cleaning will work with your insurance company before and upon completion of any restoration process. Remember, when it comes to water, fire or smoke damage, there is no time to wait.
