Phoenix Services – Water

The process of water remediation and restoration is complex and involved and no property owner should try to go about it alone. Even a small amount of water in your home or business can cause serious damage to your homes structure and your personal belongings, and can result in extended problems with biological growth and rot.

Following an incident resulting in water damage, it is important to contact Phoenix Restoration & Environmental Services as quickly as possible to start the drying process, because when it comes to water damage, the mitigation and drying process has to start without delay!

Next, you want to contact your insurance carrier so an insurance adjuster can assist with determining the extent and cost of the damage. After a budget has been established for the covered damages, Phoenix can begin to work with you and your insurance carrier to restore, replace and rebuild your property as needed.

Phoenix uses moisture detectors to determine the amount of moisture in different materials, such as flooring and sheetrock, and hygrometers to accurately measure and track the overall humidity in the air. Various methods of water extraction (from portable extraction units to submersible pumps), are used to remove as much water as possible, while high speed air moving fans are used to circulate a high volume of air across flooring, padding, furniture, walls, etc. This process of air circulation promotes evaporation of any residual moisture left following the water extraction.

As the excess moisture evaporates, Phoenix employs heavy duty, industrial dehumidifiers to complete the dehumidification process. This removes the moisture in the air and stops the process of condensation and secondary water damage.

In some cases it is necessary to mitigate the water damage by removing damaged flooring, padding, sheetrock, insulation, etc., allowing the drying process to reach behind the walls when water has infiltrated the wall cavities of the home.

Throughout the process, deodorization and disinfecting products are utilized to eliminate odors and biological growth (mold, fungus, mildew, bacteria, etc.) due to excessive moisture in the home.
