Comprehensive Water Damage Restoration Process: From Assessment to Reconstruction, Following IICRC Standards

Emergency Response

We understand the urgency of water damage situations, as mold can begin to grow within 48-72 hours. Our team is committed to swift response times, ensuring we arrive at your property within hours to initiate the remediation process without delay.

Using advanced equipment, we swiftly extract standing water from your property to prevent further damage and promote drying.

We employ industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry affected areas, minimizing the risk of mold growth and structural damage.

Our team thoroughly cleans and sanitizes the affected areas to eliminate any contaminants and ensure a safe and healthy environment for you and your family.

If mold is present, we employ proven techniques to eradicate mold spores and prevent future growth, restoring indoor air quality and mitigating health risks.

It’s crucial to ensure that the affected areas are completely dry before proceeding with any reconstruction efforts. Our team conducts thorough moisture level assessments to confirm that all moisture has been effectively removed. This step is essential to prevent further damage and ensure the long-term stability of your property.

Once the affected areas are thoroughly dried and sanitized, we assess the reconstruction requirements. Our team meticulously evaluates any structural damage or repairs needed to restore your property to its pre-damage condition. We then provide you with a detailed estimate outlining the scope of reconstruction work and its associated costs.

What are the Key Steps Homeowners Should Take When Responding to Water Damage and Flood Emergencies?

Shut Off the Main Water Valve

Immediately locate and shut off the main water valve to prevent further water flow and minimize damage. This valve is typically located near the water meter or where the main water line enters your home.

If safe to do so, secure valuable items and belongings to a dry area to prevent further damage. This includes electronics, furniture, documents, and any other valuable possessions. Note that for heavier items, the restoration team from Northwest Crawl Space Services will assist in moving them to a safe location.

Be cautious of potential safety hazards such as slippery floors, electrical outlets near the water, or weakened structures. Ensure your safety and that of your family members before proceeding.

Notify your insurance company as soon as possible to initiate the claims process. Document the visible damage with photographs or videos and provide detailed information about the incident.

Contact Northwest Crawl Space Services to assess the extent of the damage and begin the cleanup and restoration process. They have the expertise and equipment to handle water extraction, drying, and restoration efficiently.

If the water damage is due to a leak in your plumbing system, schedule a visit from a licensed plumber to identify and repair the source of the leak. Addressing the underlying issue promptly can prevent future water damage incidents.

Follow any instructions provided by our representatives to facilitate the cleanup and restoration process. This may include allowing access to affected areas and following safety protocols.

Rob and crew from NW Crawl Space did full remediation for our crawl space and attic, after finding evidence of rodents (mice) in both areas. Removed old crawl space insulation & vapor barrier, replaced heat-ducts that were damaged, & vacuumed out attic insulation and debris. Sealed openings in both areas to prevent rodents from returning. Traps set, with rodent control plan. Highly recommended!

Northwest Crawl Space Services has been honest, professional, easy to work with, and has done excellent work on my home. I first approached the company looking for someone to reinsulate and clean out my mud room crawlspace-- it is an addition to the house and is open-air. Lior came by and noted that because NWCSS specializes in fiberglass insulation, they wouldn't be able to work on this part of my house, because it would require spray foam insulation to truly be rat and weather proofed. I really appreciated this up front honesty-- two previous contractors had given me bids to reinsulate with fiberglass, never mentioning the need for spray foam, and never saying that they wouldn't be able to do a proper job. I would have paid money to some other company for a shoddy, inappropriate "solution" if Lior had not filled me in. Lior even recommended some other companies to call that specialize in spray foam! After this helpful and informative experience, I knew right away when I discovered signs of rats in my main basement crawlspace that I wanted NWCSS to be the ones to work on the problem. Lior came by to check it out and did a very thorough inspection. His manner with clients is excellent-- I never felt like my questions were being dismissed. We set a date for a crew to come by to replace rat-infested insulation, remove the improperly installed vapor barrier, clean out debris, and reinstall vapor barrier to industry standards. The crew, Patrick and Chandler, were friendly, polite, and happy to answer questions. Savannah in the office has also been very friendly and quick to answer my questions regarding logistics and payment. Overall, my experience was excellent and I will re-hire NWCSS when it comes time to reinsulate and clean out my attic crawlspace.

Matan gave us a fair estimate for the crawl space re-insulation and screening, and the work was done promptly. I was pleasantly surprised when the final bill came in about 15% UNDER the estimate. It’s nice to deal with a company which has the integrity to pass those savings on.

Northwest Crawl Space is a trustful company to work with. They helped me install the French drain, replace the insulation and vapor barrier. Matan and his stuff did a great job. They will carefully protect your home when performing the job, clean the waste after the work is done, and come back to inspect if the work is good.

We had Northwest crawlspace come out to inspect our crawlspace and they identify a lot of standing water as well as rodent activity in the insulation. As a result, we needed a full clean out of our crawlspace and new insulation, vapor barrier, drain and sump pump. The crew was professional, friendly and fast. The work was extremely well done, we recently had them come out to check everything and the technician confirmed it was one of the best installs he had seen. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

I am beyond pleased with the company and would highly recommend them to everyone.
