In general, there are some factors that need to be taken into consideration when we are talking about the time the project will take. Here we will discuss some of those factors.

Moisture Level

Does your home or business have standing water, or a continuous leak? Flood mitigation and removal would be the first step and can add some time to your restoration process. From there it is important for us to remove all of the water that is left behind through dehumidification. Using special sensors and monitors we can know when the job is done. There are some factors that could affect the dehumidification process as well such as the temperature and humidity of the air around us. 

Extent Of The Damage

Having your entire property affected by water damage can look a lot different than having some water damage in your laundry room, for example. The magnitude of the project will play a role in how long the process will take. Are your walls and flooring experiencing structural damage? How much furniture and personal belongings are in the area that are in need of repair? These are things we will assess and that will go into estimating the time of the restoration process.

Type Of Damage

There are many different types of water damage, such as:

  • Flooding
  • Storm and precipitation damage
  • Leaking pipes
  • High humidity damage
  • Sewage or drainage overflow

These things will create different scenarios when it comes to water damage, how much water is standing, if the water is still flowing, contamination, etc. All of these can cause the need for different or additional jobs to be included in the restoration process
