Water damage in your home can come from a variety of sources. In Indiana, we often think about sump pump failures and a flooded basement. However, water damage from other sources can potentially be just as devastating. Broken pipes, leaking refrigerators / icemakers, frozen spigots, washing machine hoses, sewage backups, roof leaks and ice dams can all cause significant damage to the inside of your home. In most of these situations, it is important to rely on a professional in the field to protect the integrity and security of your investment. Indiana Restoration & Cleaning Services have certified water damage specialists that can thoroughly inspect your property and work with your insurance company to ensure your home is properly dried.

Inspection and Evaluation
In any water damage situation, it is important to assess the building materials and contents that are retaining moisture and develop a specific and unique drying plan for each loss. Indiana Restoration & Cleaning Services has trained personnel and specialty equipment that can evaluate water damage and ensure all areas that are retaining moisture are identified and addressed. Most often during a water loss situation, there are more materials that are wet than appear to be. Even if you feel the water damage is small or isolated, it should be evaluated by a water damage restoration professional.
Removing excess moisture in a water damage situation is a critical first step in the water damage restoration process. Indiana Restoration & Cleaning Services have the appropriate equipment to ensure this excess moisture is removed quickly and thoroughly.
Even after the excess (or visible) moisture is removed after a water damage situation, building materials and contents normally retain some level of moisture and need to be further addressed through drying. If the structure is not appropriately dried, over a period of time, odors, bacteria and mold could result. Indiana Restoration & Cleaning Services have trained professionals and specialty drying equipment to thoroughly dry your property and protect your investment.
Building Material Removal
Some building materials can be dried in place through air movement and dehumidification. Unfortunately there are times when building materials cannot be appropriately dried and need to be removed. Indiana Restoration & Cleaning Services have trained professionals that know the proper way to remove only the necessary building materials to get your property fully dried. Removing only what is necessary facilitates a faster rebuilding process and getting your investment back to its pre-loss condition. If building materials need to be removed during the drying process, Indiana Restoration & Cleaning Services have the resources and expertise to rebuild or repair your property as well.
Deodorization, Cleaning and Antimicrobials
When water damage occurs, often times it is accompanied by the presence of a variety of odors. While this is quite normal, the presence of “musty” odors is due to the presence of odor causing bacteria. Indiana Restoration & Cleaning Services have the expertise to ensure your investment is protected from odors and we will clean and treat your property and possessions to eliminate these odors if necessary.
