Water Restoration Process

Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

We simplify the restoration process by handling both the initial damage mitigation and rebuilding the affected areas. Having one qualified company for the entire process provides continuity and can save time and keep cost low. 

LJS Contractors has the experience and equipment to quickly restore your property to pre-water damage condition. We use a scientific approach to water removal and water cleanup with an emphasis on monitoring and documenting the drying process from beginning to end.

Water Damage Restoration You Can TRUST!

When you call, we will begin immediately to gather important information with respect to your water emergency. Once we have the details of your water event we will dispatch and begin the mitigation process immediately.

LJS Contractors is trained to IICRC standards in Water Restoration and restoring your property is our number one priority! You will appreciate the immediate response and you will know everything is being done to limit the damage.

Once at your home, the restoration process begins right away with a detailed inspection of your property to discover the extent of the damage. We utilize the information collected to determine the scope of the damage to develop an appropriate plan of action.

We will look for safety concerns and explain them to you. We will move furniture and property contents and block items to help prevent rust or furniture stains on wet carpet.  Once the source of the water in your home or business is stopped, the drying process can begin.

The water extraction will remove a great deal of the water. By performing a thorough water extraction, we can help reduce the drying time and work to prevent mold and secondary water damage. We have specialized equipment to quickly remove gallons of water from your property.    

We will inspect the carpet and pad to determine if it should be removed to protect the subfloor.

  • Moisture detectors and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation.
  • Infrared cameras may be used to find hidden water behind walls and ceilings.
  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.

After the water removal, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are still wet to the touch. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage.

During the drying/dehumidification process we will manipulate temperature and relative humidity to remove the remaining moisture. We use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove water retained by building materials and other hard-to-access moisture. We will carefully monitor and log the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

LJS Contractors understands your situation.  We know that every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process is the same.
