Demystifying Water Damage Restoration: A Houston Area Beginner’s Guide

Published on November 17, 2023

Water damage can be overwhelming for those living in the Houston Texas area, but fear not – mastering the art of restoration is possible. In our quick guide for dummies, we break down the basics of water damage restoration into simple steps.

  1. Assessment: Begin by assessing the extent of the damage. Identify the source of water and categorize the damage level – is it clean water from a burst pipe, or is it contaminated water from a flood?
  2. Safety First: Before diving in, prioritize safety. Turn off electricity and wear protective gear to avoid hazards. Safety is the cornerstone of effective restoration.
  3. Extraction: Remove standing water promptly using pumps or wet/dry vacuums. The longer water sits, the more damage it causes.
  4. Drying: Thoroughly dry the affected area using dehumidifiers and fans. Moisture is the enemy, inviting mold and further damage.
  5. Clean and Disinfect: Once dry, clean and disinfect the area to ensure a healthy environment. Mold and bacteria can thrive in damp conditions.
  6. Restoration: Repair damaged structures and replace irreparable items. A fresh coat of paint can give a new life to affected surfaces.
