Complete structural drying is imperative after a building has undergone extensive water damage like a burst pipe or a flood. This intensive but effective drying process can save water damaged portions of your structure, preventing expensive renovations.
By using professional techniques and the latest technologies, our drying technique ensures your structure will be completely dry – drywall, flooring, and ceilings, etc. – within days depending on the severity of your loss.
Water seeps to the lowest point of any area as quickly as it can. It slides under doors and walls, in between tiles, and into all types of flooring. If it is not found and extracted quickly, water can ruin drywall, cabinetry, flooring, electrical wiring – even cause dry rot and structural damage. In worst case scenarios, undetected water damage can provide a safe harbor for microbial growth.
CCCR’s team are experts in drying: walls and ceilings, cabinets, hardwood floors, carpeted flooring and ceramic floors. Complete structural drying prevents long-term damage.
All is not lost! Depending on the level and category of damage, there are things you can do to mitigate your damages.
Call Professionals. CCCR has a team of highly-trained professionals on-call day and night to assist at the first sign of trouble. Our methods comply with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and rank at the top of our industry.
Call Your Insurance Company. After you are assured that the professionals are on the way, make sure you notify your insurance company and open a claim. Let your agent know that you have a trained restoration team on the way. Request your claim number. You will need this number throughout the process. Your insurance company may give you specific information regarding exclusions or limits; be sure to take notes.
Document. Document. Document. If it is safe and you have time to do so, go ahead and take pictures or video of the damages. Be sure to take photos of any individually insured items like heirloom rugs, furniture, or artwork. Try to take the photo with the entirety of each room or area in the shot. These photographs are for your file and may be referred to later, if necessary.
Secure Space. If it is clear that you are unable to stay in your space, in the short or long term, reach out to your insurance adjuster immediately for alternative arrangements. Many insurance companies can walk you through this process. Depending on the coverage you carry, you may be entitled to additional benefits.
Quick Response. When we receive a call for help, we respond quickly because our team understands that the quicker we get to work, the more likely it is that we will be able to save valuable property. When you make that call, one of our team members will be on the other end ready to dispatch a team of our restoration professionals to you.
Assessment. Once we arrive at your property, a thorough inspection is always our first step. We must know precisely what type of water damage you have experienced. This is for both the safety of our team and the safety of you and your loved ones. This allows us to evaluate and create a plan of attack.
Planning. Our professionally trained estimator will develop a detailed plan for mitigation or remediation and restoration based on their evaluation. You can expect a scope of work, estimate of costs, and thorough documentation of all damages. Our priority is to get your property back to pre-loss condition as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Communication. Once contracted, CCCR will assign a Project Manager to your job. This specially trained professional will be your point of contact throughout the entirety of your repairs. Your Project Manager allows you to feel confident in the work that is being handled.
We will work closely with your insurance company, providing all necessary recommendations and documentation so that your claim can be processed smoothly. Our goal is relieving as much of the burden from your shoulders so that you can focus on your essential day-to-day duties.
Execution of the Plan. If needed, our team will move in immediately to begin extracting water from your property. You can expect to see water extraction equipment, industrial dryers, dehumidifiers, and large fans. We use innovative moisture detection equipment to ensure that all moisture areas have been detected and a plan for eradication from your home before we begin the restoration process.
Contents. When a home has incurred water damage, soft goods within the space (bedding, clothing, upholstered furniture, etc.) can become damaged as well. Our team is trained to quickly and carefully inventory, pack and remove those items from your structure to be cleaned and/or stored.
Once your property is at our facility, our technicians are specially trained to inspect, clean and store each item. Our goal is to return your property back to you in pre-loss condition. We use only the safest, gentlest, and most effective cleansers on the market.
If you prefer not to have your items removed from your home, you have the option of the cleaning to take place on-site. Please ask us about the possibility of this if it is important to you.
