Our Step-by-Step Process for Water Removal in Gladstone, OR
Rely on F.I.R.E. Restoration to move swiftly when natural or manmade flooding has invaded your house. We employ a step-by-step process to provide you with effective and efficient water removal in Gladstone, OR. Our fire and water restoration firm has the experience and understanding to mitigate damage.
Stopping the Source
Water damage is unique in that the source of water -- if not stopped -- has the potential to penetrate an entire structure and do massive amounts of damage. The first step is for us to stop water at the source if that hasn’t already been done. We do whatever it takes whether the source is found inside the house or at the main line.
Removing Standing Water
Our next step in water damage restoration is to remove any and all standing water. Standing water has the potential to cause more damage the longer it’s there. We work quickly with trained professionals to remove standing water so we can begin assessing and repairing any damage.
Testing & Assessing Damage
Water mitigation requires us to do comprehensive testing of what is damaged, what is salvageable, and what needs to be replaced. This funnels into our standard procedure of assessing the damage to a structure and estimating repair costs. This phase of a project involves detailed analysis of a structure to determine all of the potential costs. Again, our experience handling these types of situations uniquely positions us to be able to efficiently assess damage and move into the drawing, permitting, and repair phases.
Drawings & Permits
Next, we draw up plans for the rebuild and navigate all of the necessary permits to complete the project successfully and promptly. This critical phase ensures your project is finished according to specifications and all of the red tape is managed, so you can look forward to moving on with your life.
Demolition & Restoration
For flood restoration, repair typically begins with demolition, as the water-damaged pieces of the home are removed to avoid further penetration of water, mold, and mildew. Next ,we restore the damaged areas. We partner with the subcontractors of the highest quality, whom we trust, and we pay on time. This allows us to build a solid book of business with quality companies to ensure our projects come in close to budgets and deadlines. It also means a higher quality of restoration for our clients.
