Gone are the days where water restoration companies demolish anything that was touched by water. The IICRC S500 (which is our standard of care) advocates drying in place for most situations. With proper water removal, rapid airflow, and dehumidification most materials will dry.
When you are standing in several inches of water in your living room, the main goal is the get rid of all of the water. Quickly removing the water is important, but it is just the first step of water damage restoration. If you stopped here, then mold can still grow in the damp environment left behind.
This is why you need a trained and certified water restoration technician. We will make sure all visible and hidden moisture is removed from your home.
