What Does Water Extraction & Drying Involve?
Water extraction is the first step in the water damage restoration process. This involves removing the water from a property using powerful pumps and vacuums. Once the water has been removed, the drying process can begin.
Drying involves using high-powered, professional grade fans and dehumidifiers to remove the remaining moisture from the affected areas. This can be a lengthy process, but it is necessary to prevent mold growth and further damage to the property.

Why Is Water Extraction Important?
Water extraction is one of the most important steps in the water damage restoration process. Removing the water from your property can prevent further damage and mold growth. Moisture left to fester can also become a breeding ground for a nasty pest infestation. Silverfish, flies, cockroaches, and ants thrive in moist environments and can harm your property and health.
Our Water Extraction & Drying Process
A full inspection must be done once we arrive at your home or office after any water damage. This process focuses on the category and amount of damage caused by the water.
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, And Restoration Certification (IICRC) has outlined three categories of potential contamination:
- Clean Water: Water at this level is determined to originate from a safe and sanitary source. Rainwater, water supply lines, and toilet tanks fall into this subset.
- Grey Water: The grey category indicates contamination. Sources may include dishwashers, aquariums, or washing machines.
- Black Water: This refers to water containing toxic agents detrimental to human health, such as sewage, seawater, or rain, following a natural disaster.
