The length of time it takes to complete the water damage restoration process varies significantly depending on the extent of the damage. In situations where only small areas of the property were damaged by clean water, the entire process may only take a few days to complete. However, if large areas were damaged or if the water was contaminated, the process can take anywhere from several weeks to several months to complete.
There are two phases to the water restoration process. The first phase involves drying out the property and cleaning up any damage and debris caused by the water. This process only takes a few days. However, the second phase, which involves restoring the property to its prior state, can take significantly longer when the damage is extensive. This phase is where items in your home are salvaged, repairs are made, damaged areas are cleaned and sanitized, and any necessary mold remediation is performed.
