Commercial Storm Damage Restoration
After a storm, your property may be damaged, but you don’t have to fear the repair process. We are standing by ready 24/7 to provide immediate service and to protect your property from further loss.
What to expect during the storm damage repair process.
No two storms are alike and neither is the damage they cause which is why we customize a restoration plan according to your specific needs. Below is a quick overview of the commercial storm damage restoration process.
When our team arrives, they will conduct an inspection of the affected area(s) to determine the extent of the damage. They will then document all of their findings in order to create an accurate estimate for the cost of repairs.
Water damage frequently accompanies storm damage. Using submersible pumps, truck-mounted vacuums and any other equipment necessary, we'll extract the majority of the water from an affected space to stop water damage from spreading and mold from starting. This will also give us a jump start on drying everything out for you.
We also use a variety of tools, including infrared cameras, to assess saturation and find any water that may have gotten behind your walls or in the ceiling.
With the extraction complete, we'll determine whether or not it's necessary to remove your carpet and carpet pad to preserve the integrity of your subfloor.
Once the water is removed, the CRC team will move on to completely drying out your floors, walls and other items. This is crucial to avoid warping, swelling, mold and other ongoing issues that will undermine any restoration efforts.
Using industrial-strength fans and dehumidifiers, we will reduce the humidity and dry out your carpet, furniture, drywall, wood and other materials.
Throughout the drying process, we'll use highly specialized instruments to assess moisture levels in the floors, walls and other areas until they reach proper levels.
Once everything is dried out, returning your space to "normal" will take a lot of cleaning. This step typically includes the following:
- Providing the necessary cleaning techniques to assist in restoring as many items as possible
- Utilizing a portable filtration system (air scrubber) to remove lingering and offensive odors
- If applicable for your situation, sanitizing and disinfect using industrial-grade cleaning agents
- Discarding any damaged items with your approval and according to insurance guidelines
Depending on how extensive the damage is, this could take anywhere from a few days up to several weeks or even months. Throughout your project, your dedicated project manager will keep communication open so that they can address any concerns as they arise (and will let you know if anything changes). This way, everyone is on the same page and there won’t be any unexpected delays or problems during the course of repairs.
