How Long Does Each Step of the Water Damage Restoration Process Take?

1/20/2018 (Permalink)

Finding your home in Bloomington, MN affected by water damage is extremely disheartening. There is no time to waste, and homeowners should contact a professional storm restoration service in their area immediately after finding the damage. These experts know precisely how to extract water and tear out damaged surfaces. Naturally, all homeowners wonder when their house will be back to its normal self, and the answer usually depends on the extent of the damage.

1. Water Mitigation and Extraction

First, the company needs to curtail the effects of the flood water and moisture. This involves bringing in a heavy-duty extracting machine to remove the standing water. Next, the team has to prevent mold from growing. It only takes one day for mold to start growing. Finally, the professionals need to dry out the room using dehumidifiers and powerful drying systems. It generally takes about three days to do all this. The team needs to ensure the room is free of water damage before continuing on to the tear out stage.

2. Reconstruction

The amount of time it takes to reconstruct a room ultimately depends on how much the water affected. Professionals typically need to remove the drywall because it often absorbs moisture. Any insulation behind the wall usually also needs to be removed in case the water has compromised that. If the flooding occurred in a room with carpeting, then all of it must be taken out and replaced with something else. Depending on exactly how much damage occurred, it can take anywhere between a few days and a couple weeks to complete the work.

Hopefully your house in Bloomington, MN will be back in spectacular condition in less than a week. Avoid delaying the process any more than necessary by contacting a storm restoration service near you so that an experienced team can tear out and repair the damaged room.
