Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Brandywine, DE

How Destructive is Water Damage to Brandywine Properties?

You might not consider how likely water emergencies are for your Brandywine home or business, especially with winter cold snaps and extreme temperatures that can strain exposed plumbing. Prolonged exposure to sensitive materials can erode and deteriorate them, such as drywall or wood flooring/fixtures. A prompt response makes a difference, whether it is the thousands of residents in the area or the shops and restaurants of Concord Square and Concord Plaza.

Assessing the Water Damage Before Mitigation

Knowing what we are up against when we reach a damaged property is vital to understanding what tools and practices get the job done. Moisture detection devices range in function, so multiple strategies get used to determine the extent of the damage as soon as possible. The scope of the damage ensures that containment and efficient extraction occur, which is necessary for larger assisted living facilities like Sunrise of Wilmington. Much like the hotels on Route 92, water damage in these structures can impact multiple rooms and guests simultaneously.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
