Water Damage Recovery

CREW Inc. has a large inventory of drying equipment, air movers, dehumidifiers and other technical equipment. Timely action is essential. Remember that damage resulting from water s progressive. The longer the water flows or wet conditions exist, the more is absorbed and the greater are the recovery issues. Merely stopping the source of the water does not stop further water damage, though it is an obvious and critical first step.

How to avoid making it worse:

  • Act quickly… Do not leave wet fabrics in place, dry as soon as possible.
  • Hang furs and leather goods to dry separately at room temperature.
  • Do not leave books, magazines, or other colored printed items on wet carpets or floors.
  • Do not use your household vacuum to remove water.
  • Do not use TV’s or other appliances while standing on wet carpets or floors, especially, on wet concrete floors.
  • Do not turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet, and keep out of rooms where ceilings are sagging from retaining water.
  • Do not put wet contents on top of dry contents.

Water Damage Restoration Service Details

To prevent further damage and to ensure the health and safety of you and your family, the restoration technicians, and any other sub-contractors that may need access to the property, emergency work may involve the following:

  • Application of anti-microbial solution to prevent mold and mildew growth and kill waterborne bacteria and viruses in sewage and external water incidents.
  • Extraction of standing water.
  • Removal of content items, if applicable, deemed to be beyond economical restoration.
  • Moisture testing to determine the extent of moisture content in structural material, floor coverings, and in the air.
  • Installation of drying equipment such as dehumidifiers and air-movers.

A detailed assessment of the damage to the building and/or contents will be undertaken following the completion of the emergency work.


The extent or amount of restorative work performed will depend upon the extent of the flooding.

When flooding of any kind takes place in a residential or commercial setting, a drying and monitoring program must be instituted to ensure a full and complete restorative process is accomplished. Failure to do so may well create an environment in which baceria and other microorganisms breed leading to potential health problems. Additionally, there is also the added potential for additional structural damage ot flooring, walls, furniture, etc. Therefore, the Technician will meet with you and arrange a schedule to regularly monitor the reduction of moisture in the building structure and air.
