When your property is back to its best condition, you can move on from the disaster. Let us help you and get your property back to its top shape.
DC Water Restoration specializes in all types of water damage. No matter the source or the size of the damage, we’re ready to reverse that damage and make your home safe and dry.
Types of Water Damage
Where does water damage come from? If you own a home or a building, water damage can come from inside or outside the property. For example, here are some of the types of water damage that we cover:
- Burst Pipes
- Leaking Pipes
- Broken Appliances
- Sewage Backup
- Groundwater (water in the basement)
- Floods and Storms
Each water type comes with a different risk level. While some types of water are relatively safe, some are absolutely not. Choose a restoration team that knows the potential dangers of each type and has the safety equipment necessary to deal with these dangers. DC Water Restoration is equipped to handle all levels of water damage, from the fairly safe pipe water to the highly dangerous sewage backup.
With all types of water damage, we put our time-tested process to work for you.
Find the Source
First, if necessary, we find the source of the water and stop the flooding. Then we assess the risks and dangers that come from the type of water that you’re dealing with.
Extraction and Drying
If you have several inches of standing water, we use our sump pumps to remove the water. Then we use dehumidifiers, fans, and other tools to dry the impacted area thoroughly. We even have state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment that can sense moisture in the air and on surfaces. This way, there’s no guesswork. We find out exactly where the moisture is so that we can get rid of it. This equipment allows us to remove even the hidden water that may have gotten behind your walls or into other hiding places.
Property and Contents Cleanup
Once the drying process is underway, we start our thorough restoration and cleanup process. We start this process by removing what can’t be salvaged. Then, we clean and restore whatever we can salvage. This process includes cleaning your HVAC system, which prevents mold and moisture from spreading throughout your property. When it comes to smaller items like blankets, toys, electronics, and other possessions, we move them offsite for a complete cleaning process. As we move your things, we’ll take inventory.
Facilitate Insurance Claims
We’ll work with your insurance company to make sure that you get coverage for your disaster. We’re happy to help you file your claim and make sure that you get all the documentation that you need.
Smoke and Fire Damage
They call us the Water Damage Team, but we’re much more than that. We also take care of fire and smoke damage.
Thorough and Complete
A fire is never just a fire. When people think of fire damage, they usually picture burnt items, but there’s also soot, smoke, and even water damage. These other types of damage can be dangerous, too, so you’re not out of the woods just because the fire is out. Our team works quickly and completely to minimize loss and get your property back to its best condition.
Just like with water damage, our fire damage process involves several steps.
We start by assessing the damage. This way, we can give you an idea of what we’ll need to do and how long this process may take.
Restore and Reconstruct
Next is the reconstruction phase. We remove what can’t be salvaged and restore what we can. We also provide contents restoration during this part of the process, carefully moving your possessions offsite for the best possible cleaning.
Water Damage Removal
Water can put out a fire, but once that’s done, the water starts leaving its own damage. If you have water damage after a fire, we’ll apply the same water restoration process that we’ve detailed above.
Soot cleanup is tough if you don’t have the right tools or training. It doesn’t come off with ordinary cleaners, and it spreads easily. Soot sticks to surfaces, which is why you need an expert cleaning team to remove that soot. Our specialized cleaning process removes soot when nothing else will do the job.
Smoke and Odor Removal
Smoke is just as stubborn as soot. It’s dangerous to breathe, and you may feel like the smell will never go away. The good news, though, is that we can make it go away. We remove smoke from your air and surfaces. We even clean out your HVAC system so that the smoke won’t continue to spread.
