What Drying Processes Are Best for Damaged St. James Residences?
Drying can be complicated, especially when the moisture has spread through structural cavities and become trapped in porous materials. We have multiple drying equipment to overcome this moisture content in various forms. The heart of the drying process is a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers placed appropriately throughout the household.
When Are Water Damage Repairs Needed?
Choosing the best time for water damage repairs might not always be clear. One of the objectives of a thorough investigation and assessment of the conditions of a water-damaged property is to determine the likelihood and necessity of build-back services. With a general contractor license, we can complete these actions and save customers money.

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
The restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources that may be needed.
2. Inspection and Damage Assessment
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.
3. Water Removal / Water Extraction
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.
4. Drying and Dehumidification
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.
5. Cleaning and Sanitizing
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.
