We understand the dangers posed by floodwater. Water from overflowing rivers, creeks, or storm drains, whether a small amount in the basement or pervasive flooding throughout, can bring toxic contaminants into your home—gasoline, oil, pesticides, fertilizers, septic system and animal waste, and may threaten your family’s health. And the longer the contaminated water stands, the greater the potential for damage to structures and spoilage of furnishings and possessions.

Our technicians are fully trained and highly qualified, with certification from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification—IICRC—well recognized as the organization that sets the standard for disaster recovery, and by the nationally recognized Mold Inspection Consulting & Remediation Organization—MICRO.

When you contact WARREN RESTORATION after a flood at your home, you get our proven step-by-step process:

  1. Take safety precautions. We first take complete safety precautions, from wearing protective gear to shutting down the electric power to avoid risk of electrocution.Then we locate the source of the floodwater and take steps to stop the additional flow of water onto your property.
  1. Assess the damage. We inspect your home both inside and out to determine the full extent of the damage from flooding. This enables us to develop the best plan to remove the floodwater and clean and decontaminate the affected area.
  1. Classify the type of flood. Flooding classification is based on the amount and extent of water damage. This includes determining the level of dampness in carpets, carpet pads, flooring, and furniture. We check the walls and insulation for water absorption and stains. And we look for dampness on porous surfaces, such as brick, concrete, or hardwood, which require a specialized drying procedure.
  1. Identify the water type. Next, we identify and categorize the floodwater that has invaded your home by determining its source and the levels of contaminants or biohazards that may be present. Proper categorization is critical to selecting the appropriate extraction and cleaning method.
  1. Extract the water. Standing floodwater extraction is done using professional-grade, truck-mounted equipment and submersible pumps that remove the water directly into our trucks while ensuring it never touches another surface. We work quickly—the longer the water remains on your property, the greater the potential for damage and danger. Once the water is removed, we dispose of it properly.
  1. Dry the area. After the standing water has been extracted, we use specialized equipment—heat dryers and drying panels, high-powered air movers and fans, and dehumidifiers—to eliminate all moisture and thoroughly dry the affected area, including building materials and flooring (even hardwood). In good weather, we let nature help by allowing the sun and dry breezes to flow through open windows. We also check for residual dampness in hidden, hard-to-reach areas behind walls and under floors. Finally, we place specialized equipment to test for any moisture and humidity that may remain.
  1. Clean the area. After all water is removed and the area is completely dry, we thoroughly clean and sanitize all possessions and surfaces—floors, walls, ceilings, fixtures, etc.–using safe cleaning products and methods. Mold can cause or exacerbate health conditions, such as allergies and asthma. So we provide specialized treatment—including HVAC cleaning and HEPA-filter vacuuming—to areas susceptible to mold and mildew. This reduces the number of airborne contaminants and also removes any dank, musty odors. Working alongside you, we carefully inspect property contents for water damage, including personal belongings and building materials, salvaging what can be cleaned and restored and properly disposing of what cannot.
  1. Renovate your property. We provide the resources to repair or renovate any part of the property that sustained damage from the floodwater, so you don’t have to worry about dealing with multiple contractors.
