The Water Damage Cleanup Process

Many individuals do not realize that, before receiving water damage repair, the need to work with a mitigation company. Water mitigation companies specialize in demolition, drying, and sanitizing your home before reconstruction. This is where Kingsley Water Damage Restoration comes into play. Our purpose is to stop the water damage from spreading or getting worse. If you skip this important step you may run into secondary damage like buckling floors, sagging ceilings or even worse, mold growth. This is why our 24 hour emergency water damage services are crucial.

After identifying pockets of moisture and physically removing as much water as possible, Kingsley professionals will begin the restoration process by employing specialized drying equipment to target the affected areas that require drying. We use less intrusive, scientific drying strategies to remove any remaining trapped water from your property. You can generally expect drying times to take from 3 to 5 days, depending upon the different types of structural materials that are wet.

Dense hardwoods in flooring, furniture, and cabinetry, along with concrete, may require longer drying periods. Absorbent materials such as drywall and wood can quickly soak up water. Because people can’t “feel” wet, only drier or wetter, Kingsley water damage pros use specialized moisture detection meters and equipment to determine the extent of any existing damage. We can detect moisture behind insulated walls and under floors that is “hidden” from plain sight. Water that can lead to further damage down the road, if not dealt with promptly.

Do I Have Mold?

Chances are you do not have mold due to a water damage emergency that occurred within the last couple days. In perfect conditions it’s possible but improbable. The faster the water is removed from your home the less likely mold will have a chance to start growing. Once wet materials are removed and your home is dried below 16% MC mold doesn’t have enough moisture to grow.

Who’s Responsible and What Expect When Paying For Water Damage

If you’re a homeowner with a homeowners insurance policy most emergency water damage accidents are covered. If you’re a tenant that has experienced a water loss you’re insurance probably won’t cover it. Water damage mitigation is one of the few industries we know of that asks you to sign a contract allowing us to perform all necessary restoration services without giving a cost upfront. This is standard practice in our industry. At best we can provide a ballpark figure. This is simply because it’s impossible to know how exactly how long a material will take to dry or if you have particle board flooring that will have to be removed. There are countless scenarios that all will affect the end bill. Insurance companies know and expect this. Rarely will an insurance company disagree with our mitigation bill. Their main concern is getting you dried out and safe. After that, they can haggle on the price of rebuilding your home. We also us the same water damage estimating software as them so that helps too. 🙂
