Water Damage Restoration
After the initial cleanup and drying are completed, we can move forward with the restoration phase , and the damage repairs can get started. This could involve decisions about repairing or replacement finishes and personal property, and we can help guide you on what is restorable and what needs to be replaced. For example, if you have soaked carpeting and carpet padding, we will replace that, but furniture could be dried out and restored. Things such as drywall that gets soaked will also need to be replaced as well.
