Proven Water Damage Restoration Process


Upon entering the home, we use an infrared camera to find any hidden moisture and call in more technicians depending on the size of the job.


Extract a large amount of water present in the affected area.


Remove all non-salvageable building materials.


Set containments as necessary to contain all areas moisture is present and keep dust to area our technicians are working in. This also allows our equipment to work better because the air space in the affected area is smaller.

Water damage is not an easy problem to fix, and water damage restoration takes a little more than some sponges and elbow grease. Certified Restoration wants to make sure you’ve got a solid grasp of this very serious problem.

The Numbers

You might think that water damage is something that only happens when it rains buckets or when a hurricane floods the streets. There’s a lot more to that category, and it happens a lot more often than you’d think.

Some 14,000 people experience some incident of water damage every day, whether at work or at home. Those incidents add up to more than $2.5 billion in insurance claims over the course of a year. More than a third of U.S. homeowners file insurance claims for water damage, with the average claim being around $7,000.

Degrees of Danger

Water damage causes fall into three general categories. Clean water incidents are ones where something minor but basically harmless occurs, such as sink overflows or faucet failures. 

Gray water incidents carry a minor risk of injury or contamination, such as the drainage for a washing machine or dishwasher rupturing. 

Black water incidents are ones that pose significant and distinct risks of injury or contamination. Such incidents would include sewer lines rupturing or massive floodwaters inundating the home.

Cleaning Up and Fixing Up

A good deal of water damage restoration lies in replacing damaged sections of walls, floors, ceilings and roofs. This is often expensive and time consuming, particularly when coupled with secondary activities such as mold remediation and replacement plumbing. 

There are, however, small things that most homeowners can do to keep an eye on things and stop minor problems before they devolve into bigger ones. 

Moisture damage on walls and floors is usually pretty obvious as the water tends to leave a rust-like stain on white surfaces, so if you’re seeing them, you may have a leak somewhere. Patching minor leaks, particularly around joints, will help strengthen the plumbing and also save money on water bills. Make sure you can easily get to the manual shutoff valves for water lines to help minimize damage in case of unexpected and catastrophic incidents.
