The most critical element of restorative drying is an immediate response. Our water damage restoration specialists are IICRC certified in water remediation and will arrive on-site within 2 hours after receiving your call.

We will employ the latest techniques and utilize the most advanced equipment available to maximize drying efficiency and minimize the costs to you and your insurance company.

During the assessment phase, information is gathered to determine if the material is restorable. Moisture readings are taken and the information is documented and analyzed to determine the correct amount and type of equipment necessary for the drying process.

Once a restorative drying process is implemented, daily monitoring of the drying progress is noted and the data recorded. If the materials are making significant progress after 24 hours, the drying continues with no major changes in equipment or technique while the progress is monitored and documented until the drying is complete.

If the materials are not drying as anticipated, the equipment and drying system are re-evaluated to determine what modifications need to be made to effectively complete the restorative drying process. Lightning Restoration remains in constant communication with the property owner and the insurance company throughout the process.

Generally, water in basements is caused by internal appliance failures such as water heaters or washing machines, or external factors that cause frozen pipe water damage or heavy rainstorms.

It’s important to have a professional who understands how to perform complete basement water damage cleanup and structural drying to come and take care of any basement water damage repairs as soon as possible before more damage occurs.
