Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
When we get to your Fort Worth home, our water assessment process will begin! We will do a thorough walk-through inspection of your home or commercial property. We do a complete 360 inspection of the affected areas, and the surrounding areas to make sure that the water hasn’t spread to other areas of the home and cause unseen damage. During our inspection we will determine the scope of damage and develop a plan of action to tackle the job headfirst. We will also determine the cause of damage, the type of water, the extent of the damage, and pack up and move contents and furniture so we can get to the affected areas and extract and dry them easier. You can read a bit more about our process below.
Identify and Stop the Water Source
We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.
- Stop the Source
- Check for Contaminated Water
Identify the Type of Water
We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure our professionals restore your property based on industry guidelines. The level of contamination of the water will affect the specific restoration processes we use.
- Category 1: "Clean Water"
- Category 2: "Gray Water"
- Category 3: "Black Water"
Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises
We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident. If there are any safety issues like lead or asbestos, please bring them to our attention.
