Our Water Damage Restoration Process
The moment water damage is detected, our certified crew springs into action, initiating the critical steps to limit the damage and start rejuvenating your space. Our water damage restoration services are meticulously engineered to restore your property's dry state as swiftly as possible.
Before we undertake the task of restoring the impacted area to its former state, it's crucial to contain the current damage and avert future incidents by ensuring that such an event does not happen again.
Our water damage restoration experts evaluate the nature of the water at hand and its level of contamination. They employ tools such as a moisture probe and a truck-mounted extractor to carry out this assessment effectively.
At Emerald City Construction, we employ a rigorous three-step process for all water damage restoration work:
As soon as we arrive, we begin with immediate water extraction using high-capacity pumps and vacuums. Time is of the essence, and our priority is to minimize additional damage.
Damage Evaluation and Mitigation
After the water is removed, we assess the extent of the damage. This includes evaluating structural integrity, identifying potential health hazards like mold, and preparing a comprehensive plan for mitigation.
Finally, we restore your home to its original state, or even better. This can involve minor repairs like replacing drywall or major ones like rebuilding entire rooms.

Water Damage Restoration
What Causes Water Damage or Flooding?
Most water damage is caused by severe weather, leaking or burst pipes, malfunctioning appliances, and plumbing issues.
Why Might Mold Removal Be Necessary?
Mold can start to grow in as little as 24 hours after a flood and can cause serious health issues. It's essential to remove water and dry out the area quickly.
What Happens If Your Walls Are Damaged By Water?
Water can weaken drywall, cause paint to peel, and lead to mold growth. Extensive damage may require replacing sections of the wall.
What Is Water Mitigation?
Water mitigation is the process of preventing further water damage after a flood or leak has occurred.
How Long Does Water Damage Take to Dry?
This depends on the extent of the damage and the materials affected. Generally speaking, it takes a full 24 hours for water damage to dry out — but this time can be shortened or lengthened by variables like the extent of the water damage and the size of the affected area. Mold can begin to grow within 24-48 hours, so it’s imperative that the drying process begins as quickly as possible.

Expertise in Different Types of Water Damage
We know that not all water damage is the same. Different sources of water can bring varying levels of contaminants, each requiring a unique approach to restoration. It could be clean water from a broken pipe, grey water from a washing machine overflow, or black water from a sewage backup or flood, teeming with bacteria and other harmful substances. Our skilled team is adept at identifying the type of water damage and implementing the appropriate treatment plan for each situation.
Cutting-Edge Equipment and Techniques
Another crucial component of our water damage restoration process is our use of state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques. Our arsenal includes industrial-grade dehumidifiers, high-speed air movers, and innovative moisture detection systems, all of which help us efficiently restore your home. Using a moisture probe and truck-mounted extractor, we can accurately determine the extent of water intrusion and quickly remove the water.
Priority on Health and Safety
We don't just aim to restore your property — we're also deeply committed to safeguarding your health. Water damage can sometimes lead to the growth of harmful molds and bacteria. We take the necessary steps to prevent this from happening, conducting thorough clean-ups and disinfection procedures to ensure a safe and healthy environment for you and your family.
We Value Transparency and Communication
We believe in open communication and transparency throughout the restoration process. We work with homeowners and insurance companies, providing detailed plans and updates at every stage. Our goal is not just to restore your home but also to rebuild your peace of mind.
