The Institute of Inspection and Restoration Certification (IICRC) provides a specific set of standards for fixing water damage. According to the IICRC S500, Water damage repair should only be done by experienced and trained technicians that will promptly and professionally fix water damage from a house flood according to IICRC standards like Premier Restoration Inc.
We are all capable of sucking up visible surface water with a wet/dry vacuum but it is the water you can’t see, the water that wicks up behind the wall or under the floors, that causes problems. These dark cavities are the perfect place for mold to grow. Moisture meters enable us to find water you can’t see hiding in the structure. Excess water promotes mold growth, and will also compromise the structural integrity of the materials. In addition, mold exposure presents a serious health threat to everyone in the home or business. If the water damage comes from a contaminated source like a sewage backup, it presents an imminent health threat. If this happens, then you want to avoid contact and call us immediately. No matter what caused the water damage, to prevent future health or structural problems, water damage restoration should always be handled by a licensed, insured, certified professional water damage restoration contractor like Premier Restoration Inc.
We remove any non-salvageable damaged materials and photograph every part of the damage and all damaged items. The Premier Team sprays an anti-microbial solution on the affected area. Shop vacs and common household fans are not designed to remove enough moisture or generate enough air movement to dry your home or office completely after water damage has occurred. We use specialized, high-speed, industrial air movers and dehumidifiers. Premier Restoration sets up the equipment in a specific calculated pattern, creating the most efficient drying system for your property. While the equipment removes and controls the humidity and moisture levels in the air, we monitor the progress on a daily basis with specialized meters to measure the moisture. We also communicate with your insurance company using the latest technology to facilitate the efficient processing of your insurance claim. Premier Restoration Technicians are the experts at this and have helped hundreds in the Austin and surrounding areas recover quickly from water damage loss.
