Our Water Damage Cleanup and Repair Process

We will get your League City home or business clean and restored as quickly as possible using the following steps:

Step 1: Inspection and Damage Assessment

Once our team of skilled technicians arrives, they will immediately get to work. We start by thoroughly inspecting your property and assessing your property and water damage. We will determine the water source in your home or business and stop it. We will also identify what type of water it is (white, gray, or black water) and if there is any concern for contamination. Once we have all of this information, we can develop an appropriate plan of action for cleanup and restoration.

Step 2: Water Removal

Our initial water extraction will remove the majority of water from your home or place of business. By getting rid of as much water in this step as we can, we greatly reduce the drying time and help prevent mold and secondary water damage. Our pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units can quickly extract thousands of gallons of water if necessary.

If your property requires extensive restoration, we will itemize your belongings, carefully pack them and move them off-site, where they will be safely stored until the water damage is mitigated and cleanup is completed.

Should your property contain carpeting, we will inspect it and the underlying pad to determine if they need to be removed to protect the subfloor.

Step 3: Drying and Dehumidification

Now that the major water has been removed and your items have been stored away safely, we can begin the drying process. Most building materials, such as wood and drywall, are very porous and will retain a good amount of water. If not dealt with promptly, these materials can begin to swell, warp, and break. And not to mention that insufficient drying can allow mold to take hold.

ECO Restoration & Cleaning Services uses special equipment to begin water damage restoration. We remove the excess moisture even in hard-to-reach areas. We will carefully track moisture levels and monitor progress.

Step 4: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Once your property is properly dried, we will thoroughly clean and sanitize it. Standing water damage may also require odor removal and deodorizing treatments.

Step 5: Restoration and Replace

Once your home or office is back to looking and smelling like new, we will restore any minor issues, such as drywall or carpeting, or major issues, like floor joists and walls. Once all restoration is complete, we can then begin to move your furniture and personal belongings back into your home or office.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Damage

Water damage insurance claims depend on a few different criteria. Ultimately, that's a question you'll have to clarify with your insurance company. However, we can tell you that the viability of water damage insurance claims depends primarily on what caused the damage (storm, burst pipe, plumbing malfunction, localized flood, sump pump failure, etc.). Some insurance policies will outline scenarios that will NOT be covered without specific riders like flood insurance, or sump pump failure insurance.

Contacting a restoration contractor as well as your insurance adjuster at the same time is a good idea because the restoration contractor will help make sure that not only will the water extraction and dry out be covered but the rebuild process that should follow. If the full scope of the claim isn't outlined and agreed upon from the start, there may be issues down the line, and property owners may find themselves having to pay out of pocket to get the property completely back to normal.

The time it takes to dry out a property after water damage can vary depending on several factors, including the extent of the damage, the source of the water, the materials affected, and the drying techniques employed. In general, a typical water damage restoration process can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

For minor water damage incidents, such as small leaks or localized spills, the drying process may be relatively quick, typically taking a few days to completely dry out the affected areas. This can involve using specialized equipment like dehumidifiers, fans, and air movers to remove excess moisture and promote efficient drying.

However, more severe cases of water damage, such as flooding or extensive pipe bursts, can require a longer drying period. In such instances, the restoration process may involve more extensive extraction, drying, and dehumidification techniques. Additionally, if structural elements or hard-to-reach areas are affected, it may take additional time to ensure thorough drying and prevent potential mold growth.

It's important to note that every water damage situation is unique, and the specific circumstances will determine the exact timeline for drying out a property. ECO Restoration & Cleaning Services will assess the situation, develop a tailored plan, and provide you with an estimated timeframe based on their expertise and experience.

Most homeowners start trying to remove the water themselves before they realize they'll need to contact their insurance company about a claim so they can call in a water damage restoration company. However, standing water around anything with a power cord or outlet or sagging ceilings make the area unsafe. Also, many insurance claims require documentation of the loss BEFORE any work is done, including removing the water. Always take plenty of photos of the damage you see before taking any action to start cleaning up the mess. Your restoration contractor will be able to back up your insurance claim scope with the necessary technical documentation as well.

Losing cherished items and belongings to water damage is an emotionally difficult process for many home and property owners. Our team at ECO Restoration & Cleaning Services can help try to restore and save your wet belongings while categorizing them into different severities:

  • Category 1 water (clean and free of microbes and bacteria): many of your personal belongings can be salvaged.
  • Category 2 water (other water sources, including rainwater): although this does not contain biohazards or sewage, it still poses health risks and the potential for destructive microbial growth and mold.

A water damage restoration technician will help you sort through the contents of the property to determine what can be safely dried, what can be restored by a textile/contents technician, and what can't be saved or salvaged. There are off-site facilities in the area that specialize in restoring water-damaged contents. Your restoration team will document all of the contents leaving the property for restoration or disposal for your records and also for reimbursement from your insurance company.

Identifying the source of the water damage is one of the first steps in both the insurance claim process and before beginning to dry out and repair the damaged areas. After all, if you replace a sagging, wet ceiling that was caused by a roof leak but don't fix the roof, too, the next rainstorm will start the cycle all over again. The buckling to your hardwood floor could be caused by a leaking pipe. We will pinpoint the exact cause of your water damage and make sure the source is repaired. We make sure your restoration job is done right the first time.
