Preparing Your Home for Restoration Crews; S&S Restoration

There are several reasons why you may need to hire a restoration crew for your home, whether that be fire damage, flood damage, or even mold buildup. Disasters can happen at any time, and are often unpredictable. As a homeowner, it’s incredibly important that you take prompt action to get restoration crews into your home as quickly as possible. Before they can begin your home restoration however, you should have a clear understanding of the process and prepare accordingly.

S&S Restoration Process

Every home restoration project is going to look different depending on the damage and the construction of the home. With S&S Restoration, there are six general steps in the home restoration process that we adapt to your specific needs. The steps are as follows:

  1. Initial Assessment

The first step in the restoration process is the initial assessment. Our team will come out to your home and conduct an inspection of the property and assess the extent of the damage. The information gathered during this phase will inform the entire home restoration project. This will also be your chance to ask any initial questions or raise any concerns you may have about your home.

  1. Rapid Response

Because disasters can strike at any time, we’re readily available 24/7 to begin the home restoration process for flooding, fire, and mold. Once our technicians have conducted their initial assessment, they will begin to secure your home to prevent further damage or potential injury. This may include but is not limited to boarding up windows, tarping your roof, and establishing contamination barriers. Ideally your family leaves the home to ensure your health and safety during the home restoration process, and in many cases it is required if the condition of your home is not deemed safe enough to live in.

  1. Water Extraction

In many cases with home restoration, there is some form of water damage, whether it be from flooding or plumbing damage. Water damage can be catastrophic and needs to be addressed immediately to prevent the growth of mold and irreversible structural damage. Our team will quickly begin to extract any standing water, while also locating the source of the water damage to prevent further leaks.

  1. Drying and Dehumidification 

Once the water has been extracted and stopped at the source, our team will bring in commercial-grade dehumidifiers to dry your property out. This prevents mold growth and prepares your property for the rest of the home restoration process. During this time our technicians will assess the structural integrity of your home and determine what work will be needed to get your property back up to code and liveable. Depending on the severity of the water damage, the drying and dehumidification process could take several days.

  1. Cleaning and Sanitizing 

The next step in the home restoration process is to clean and sanitize the property. This entails removing any debris, including any demolition materials and natural clutter that may have found its way into your home. In the case of fire restoration, this will also include ridding the home of the smell of smoke and any visual damage or staining. This is also when our crew will address any and all mold that is present, removing the growth permanently and ensuring it does not come back. This phase is incredibly important to guarantee complete restoration results.

  1. Restoration and Repairs 

The final phase in the home restoration process is the actual restoration and repair portion of the work. During this phase our team will work to reconstruct any walls, plumbing, electrical, flooring or other components that may have been damaged by flooding, fire, or mold. This is one of the longer phases of home restoration, and depends entirely on how much work is needed. As with all other steps, the S&S Restoration team is always readily available to answer any questions, comments, or concerns you may have to ensure your satisfaction. After all, this is your home and it should be exactly how you want it.
