Water Removal Tactics for Gilroy Homes

Mitigation is among the essential steps that can get taken as soon as our technicians first arrive at a damaged address. Often, this process focuses most on removing standing water from the residence. Pooling can lead to absorption into sensitive, porous materials like baseboards, wood flooring, carpeting, and drywall. Surface moisture removal often relies on submersible pumps and wet vacuums, but specialty extraction techniques are often necessary for trapped water, including:

  • Positive pressure systems
  • Centrifugal air movers
  • Floor drying mats
  • Controlled demolition 

Water Damage Drying Tools in Gilroy

Drying the property is one of the most critical tasks for successful water restoration. Using monitoring technologies like thermal imagery, we can identify moisture pockets and direct drying tools to begin evaporating moisture. For water in wall cavities, we can rely on advanced machines like our Injecti-Dry System to introduce warm, dry air into the cavity to promote drying.

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.

1.  Emergency Contact

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.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, repair, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

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.
