WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION
We start by first removing the bulk of the water from the structure. Our truck mounted vacuum systems make the cleanup process quick and efficient. In the right conditions, the water cleanup is even effective on tile, carpet and hardwood flooring. Once the water is removed we will then deconstruct any non-salvageable materials affected by the water damage in order to speed up the process. We then set up specialty drying equipment which will remove the rest of the moisture from the building.

Preventing Future Water Damage
- Familiarize yourself with the location of the main water shut off valve. Also find the circuit breaker for the well pump. Knowing how to quickly shut your water off can keep a small leak from causing extensive water damage.
- Turn off your main water supply before leaving the home for vacation or long weekend away. Consult with your plumbing and HVAC service professional for the safest water shut off procedures.
- Inspect or upgrade water supply lines to faucets, appliances, and fixtures. Upgrade plastic and pvc lines with braided stainless steel lines.
- Prevent or remove ice build up on the roof. Ice build up creates a dam for water to pool up in and eventually leak into the home and cause water damage.
- Consider installing alarms or flow monitor systems.
- Consider installing a battery backup for any sump or injector pumps.
- Annually service your furnace mounted humidifier.
- Ask your plumbing and HVAC provider about their annual service plan or flood prevention program.
