In the event of major water damage to your property, most people correctly look for a professional water damage company to do the work. The good news is that there are numerous listings in every city from companies advertising water damage restoration. The bad news is that not all water restoration companies are created equal, and you need to choose wisely when it comes to who will be responsible for the restoration of your property.

The fact is that not everyone who advertises water damage restoration is qualified to perform this variety of work. In some cases, you may call and not talk to an actual provider at all, but rather a “company” that turns out to be two guys in an office who secure the job, take your money, and then subcontract the work out to the lowest bidder. The person who gets the assignments may very well be someone with little or no disaster relief experience. Is this really the sort of process you want when selecting someone to work on your facility?

As of right now, there are no Federal regulations governing the water mitigation industry. It’s rather a shame, if you ask us. The end result is that anyone can throw a mop and a shop-vac in the back of their car and announce that they are in the water damage restoration business.

Excessive moisture can cause mold and indoor health concerns. Our advanced moisture detection equipment combined with company-owned dehumidification and drying equipment can remove moisture from within wall and ceiling cavities, allowing us to thoroughly dry all water-damaged areas, even in those areas of the structure you can’t see.

When determining the amount of dehumidification that is necessary, there are specific formulas which need to be calculated to properly dry a structure. These calculations are mandatory in determining the best type, size and quantity of dehumidifers required for the project.

The most commonly used dehumidification tool employed while mitigating a water loss is the refrigerant dehumidifier. The industrial grade dehumidifier is designed to operate in cooler conditions than most homeowner units. It will operate at temperatures down to 45 degrees Fahrenheit, but should not be operated above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. For best operation, maintain temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. There are two types of refrigerant dehumidifiers:

Conventional Refrigerant Dehumidifiers (or “standard”) : This is older technology and less efficient. Commonly used by the smaller, less experienced companies in the restoration industry because of the lower purchasing costs of the equipment. These dehumidifers require higher electricity usage to operate.

Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) Dehumidifiers: LGR dehumidifiers employ new technologies that enable them to remove higher levels of water at lower humidity and can ultimately dry to a lower moisture level than “standard” refrigerants. LGR’s are able to accomplish this using less electricity.

Desiccant Dehumidifier: Desiccant dehumidifiers employ a silica gel absorbent to remove moisture from the air. They have the ability to dry the air to a lower level than standard refrigerant or LGR dehumidifiers and are an effective tool when drying large facilities, hardwood floors, built-ins and cabinets, dense structural materials, plaster, brick, books, and documents. They are also useful when temperatures are below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

Buildings with mold-covered surfaces that measure more than ten square feet present an insidious health hazard that could seriously compromise the immune systems of those exposed to them. In order to be made safe, these buildings require the services of Renew Restoration who specializes in the remediation of mold. Mold remediation is the cleanup process for large areas of mold most often found in schools, government buildings and commercial buildings as well as apartment buildings.

Mold remediation is a specialized service that should be completed by a professional and not a typical contractor. The process of mold remediation differs from other types of remediation because there is a need for containment of the affected area. Oftentimes, mold remediation can be challenging with respect to locating the source of the moisture if tackled without the proper tools and equipment. Rest assured that Renew Restoration always adheres to the strictest published standards and protocols for remediating mold.
