The purpose of restorative drying is to decontaminate and dry materials efficiently. Except for easily moveable items like furniture and contents, the aim is usually to dry them on-site rather than remove them. In some cases, restorative drying can even save saturated books and documents, hardwood floors, and soaked walls and ceilings.

Water Damage

The Restoration First! Service Promise.

De-flooding is our business. There is no conflict of interest. We are not building contractors. We are not decorators. We are not part of a franchise. We are independent with more than 30 years experience.

Restoration is not reconstruction. Compared with reconstruction, drying procedures can save money. Our roll is to ensure that your property, buildings and contents are correctly and safely dried-out. We will remove debris. We will take down unsafe ceilings. We will pump-out sewage. We will remove and have your furniture stored. We will ensure your property is safely cleaned. Beyond these things we have the technical capability utilising our understanding of psychrometry to efficiently dry and minimise secondary damage.

Whereas many cleaning companies still believe that water damage restoration is simply extracting water we will at the outset, where required, prepare a bio-contamination and a hazardous materials assessment. We will recommend where specialised decontamination is required. We will supply, deliver and set-up for use both straight forward and highly sophisticated drying equipment including, dehumidifiers, air movers and TurboVent drying systems.

On-going monitoring of the drying using specialised equipment including hydrosensers and hygrometers, charting the progress daily if necessary.
 
Why Restorative Drying?

Restorative drying removes water from structures, to “restore” materials to a normal condition. It prevents moisture damage, micro-organism and soil contamination, odours, and loss of indoor air quality. When damage has already occurred, it is combined with steps like cleaning, refinishing, removal and replacement. Most abnormal water comes from within the building. Potential for damage exists even when the water is relatively clean, coming from burst pipes, faulty appliances, leaky waterbeds, or many other sources. Sources that are more contaminating include overflowed toilets, sewer backups or river floods.
