The Dry Boys of Albany has a fool-proof 5 step Water Restoration Process:
Upon arrival, the Dry Boys of Albany will assess the situation. We will determine how much water damage has occured and find the source of the flooding. If the flooding is still happening, we will stop the issue at the source. Furthermore, we’ll examine the water and look for any possible contamination to determine the water category. In addition, we investigate the areas for moisture and possible safety concerns like mold. Our last order of business in step one is to move or block furniture or property to prevent further damage.
Immediately after our assessment, we will start to remove the water. Depending on the flooding, we may have to use various pumps or extractors. If necessary, we have the capability to remove thousands of gallons of water. If there is any wet carpet, we typically extract, float or remove it to protect the subfloor. We also have various moisture detection devices to determine the extent of the water damage.
Once the standing water is removed, we begin the drying process. Drying is extremely important as it helps prevent moisture from breaking down materials and supporting mold growth. Sometimes our techs use a combination of dehumidifiers, air movers, specialized air scrubbers and air purifiers. While drying, we monitor the entire process.
When we finish drying the area, it’s important to sanitize the impacted areas. We may use antimicrobial, antibacterial disinfectant to treat and ensure the safety of you and your family. We can also eliminate any remaining odor with air scrubbers, fogging equipment and hydroxyl/ozone generators.
Lastly, The Dry Boys will help guide you in getting your home to the pre-water damage condition it was in. If you have any questions about our water restoration process. Contact us today!
