McKinley's Step-by-Step Guide for Water Restoration

24-Hour Emergency Contact
The first step is a quick conversation with our water damage restoration company. Our representative is always available to speak with you and ask for some important demographic information that will help us assess your water damage emergency. The details we will gather include contact and insurance information, the address of the water-damaged property, and when the damage occurred. If known, it is helpful to know the cause of the water damage as well as whether there is active electrical service on-site.
Inspecting & Assessing Water Damage
The process of water damage restoration begins with a careful inspection of your property, which will include a damage assessment. This is to determine the scope of the water damage so that we can determine a solid plan to carry out the remainder of the process. But it all starts with identifying the water source in your affected home or business. This water source must be stopped or turned off so the water removal process can begin. Next, we need to inspect for contaminated water, which can be extremely unsafe. In the end, we must identify the category and classification of water so the flood cleanup can restore your property to safe industry standards.
Flood Removal / Water Extraction
The water extraction itself is the removal of as much water as possible from your property. By undergoing a thorough water extraction, we can reduce the drying time needed to remove the remainder of the moisture. At times, a home may require more extensive water restoration, more time drying time, or additional cleaning. If that is the case for your home, McKinley can conduct an organized move-out process to better protect all your belongings. Our highly trained and experienced technicians will begin the process of water removal almost immediately. In a thorough process, our specialists will inspect the carpet as well as the under-pad to determine if one or both of them should be removed to keep the subfloor intact.
Drying and Dehumidification
After water removal, McKinley addresses unseen moisture in floors and walls, which may still be wet despite appearing dry. Porous materials like drywall and wood can retain water, leading to warping, swelling, or breakdowns, and potentially causing mold. Using advanced equipment such as industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, we effectively remove this moisture. We meticulously monitor the drying process with moisture meters, ensuring all surfaces, including walls and ceilings, are thoroughly dry and the environment reaches safe moisture levels. This step is crucial for complete restoration and mold prevention.
Water Cleanup and Sanitization
After reducing moisture levels, McKinley undertakes thorough cleaning and sanitization of all surfaces and belongings affected by floodwaters. This includes furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other personal items. Special treatments are used to deodorize and remove unpleasant smells. Our restoration efforts focus on preserving items like photos and personal keepsakes, using methods like wet cleaning, dry cleaning, and immersion cleaning. We also employ advanced techniques for odor removal and use air scrubbers and fogging equipment. Additionally, our team applies antimicrobial and disinfectant treatments to ensure a clean, safe living environment. If certain items are beyond repair, we coordinate their disposal with you and your insurance adjuster.
Flood Restoration
McKinley restores your space to its pre-flood condition, handling everything from minor repairs like drywall and carpet installation to major reconstructions. Our emergency services include boarding up windows, installing roof tarps, and providing temporary fencing and storage. We also offer comprehensive building and repair services such as drywall installation, floor repair, painting, and carpeting. Our aim is to simplify the restoration process by managing both initial water mitigation and complete rebuilding, ensuring cost-effectiveness, time efficiency, and seamless transition between restoration phases. Trust McKinley for complete restoration of your home or business.
