Water damage to your home needs to be addressed quickly and correctly. This damage may have occurred due to a leaking appliance, a storm, an overflowing toilet, tub, or sink, a sewage backup, or anything similar. Whatever the case is, our services for water damage restoration in the Tri Cities of WA including Kennewick, Richland & Pasco are here for you to make it so the parts of your home that have been damaged by water will be dealt with properly.
We use advanced techniques and equipment to find where any hidden moisture may be and to extract it as thoroughly as is possible. This includes the use of infrared tools such as probes to determine where the water came from and to what extent the house has been damaged.
Drying the belongings and structure of your home properly is also essential to ensuring they can be restored. We monitor the drying process closely using proven methods. We also work to sanitize the areas of the home that have been affected by the water, including by checking for cross-contamination and preventing odors from developing indoors. A lot is at stake right after your home has been affected by water damage, and getting professionals on the case can make a huge difference.
Depending on the specific situation, we may bring in various pieces of equipment to assist with the restoration of particular materials in your home. This includes drying systems for wood floors, dehumidifiers, air scrubbers and movers, and more. These pieces of equipment will be left in your home for three days or more, after which we will come back in to reevaluate the home and remove any equipment that is no longer needed.
Our professionals at Continental Carpet Cleaning are IIRC certified and available to come in to address water damage concerns as they occur–so if your home or business has flooded, call us immediately. The more quickly the water is extracted and the area is prepared for drying, the smaller chance of major damage. We use state-of-the-art moisture measuring devices, air movers, dehumidifiers, and air scrubbers (cleaners).
Below are the main steps we take to dry out floods.
We will find out what is wet, and how wet. We measure the humidity in the air, how much water is in the drywall, how wet the carpet and pad are, and anything else that could be affected. We do this using a special tool call a “Protimeter MMS Moisture Meter”.
We will remove 95% of the water from the floor, carpet, and pad.
Setup Drying Equipment
We will setup our air movers, air scrubbers, and dehumidifier to bring the room back to normal. The drying process usually take anywhere from 2 days to 6 days depending on the severity of the flood.
Zip Wall Setup – Room Containment
If possible, we can setup a partition so we are only drying the flooded areas, not the entire home.
