Evaluating contents to determine which ones must be disposed of and which can be restored is a matter of training and experience we take very seriously. Porous items such as stuffed animals, linens, mattresses, carpet, pad, drywall and wood base are several items that cannot be restored and must be disposed of. These contaminated objects will always release endo-toxins and pose a threat to human health.
Testing building materials such as drywall, carpeting, cabinets, etc. is perhaps the most overlooked aspect of the cleaning process. Visual inspection alone cannot determine what is wet, only moisture meters that are sensitive to the presence of water will reveal what materials require the attention of service.
Removing contaminated materials is the next step to assure success in the cleanup process. Any company that attempts to save drywall, carpet, pad or wood base is in direct contradiction to the Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration S-500.Page 11 section 188.8.131.52
Installing drying and HEPA air filtration equipment is the last step in the cleaning process. We use specialized equipment to remove moisture eliminating the chances for mold growth and bad smells.
