WATER

At Reversal Restoration, we understand that water damage can be devastating and costly to your home or commercial building. Water is one of the most destructive elements on earth, will follow the path of least resistance, and one tiny leak undiagnosed leak can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Our water damage restoration specialists will work with you through the entire process, following the Federal Standard for Water Restoration, the S500.

When you are dealing with any kind of water damage, immediate action is critical. Our quick response time and use of advanced equipment and techniques to remove the water quickly will help limit damage. Mold growth can begin to grow within 48-72 hours if the drying process is not started and done properly. We monitor and document the drying process very closely to ensure your property is dried thoroughly. We use the latest equipment to determine the extent of the water damage. We then establish drying goals for your property. Usually, all wet materials are dried to a pre-loss condition within three to five days. Unlike some other drying companies, Reversal Restoration is a full-service general contractor who can handle a loss from drying to rebuild.
