Depending on the cause of your flooding, our water damage restoration Dallas process may be different, but in general, you can expect the process outlined below.
Our Water Damage Restoration Dallas Process
Step 1: Damage assessment and inspection
When the water damage restoration Dallas team arrives, the first thing they will want to do is do a complete inspection of the damage done and what the best restoration option will be for your case, as well as find the source of the water and stop it. They will then need to determine the type of water that has caused the flooding and if it is contaminated because certain levels of contaminated water have different removal processes.
All of the water damage will then be surveyed and documented. If there are hazards or safety issues, your water damage restoration Dallas specialist will explain them to you and let you know what necessary precautions to take. After everything is explained, water removal will begin after your team moves or blocks furniture from further damage, rust, or furniture stains on carpet.
Step 2: Removing the water
In order to prevent mold or secondary water damage, the second step in water damage restoration Dallas process will be to remove the majority of the water in the area. Doing this as fast as possible with a truck-mounted vacuum and very powerful pumps will reduce the amount of time it takes your property to dry. This powerful equipment can remove thousands of gallons of water very quickly.
Sometimes people are advised to go through a move-out process to protect their furniture and other belongings if the water damage restoration will take extensive amounts of cleaning and water removal. Your carpet will also be inspected at the time of water removal in order to determine if it needs to be removed to protect the subfloor from damage.
Common equipment used to remove water:
- Portable extraction units
- Moisture saturation equipment such as hygrometers and moisture detectors
- Both gas-powered and submersible pumps
- Infrared cameras may be used to detect water behind walls or ceilings
Step 3: Drying, cleaning, and restoration
After the mass amounts of water are removed, the drying process will begin. Even if a majority of the area looks dry, certain places in a house (or any building style) can retain water in drywall or wood. If this water isn’t dried correctly, it can cause walls and floors to break down, warp, or grow mold.
In order to dry proficiently, dehumidification and monitoring equipment are often used. The dehumidification equipment will remove moisture quickly, and our water damage restoration Dallas professionals will use monitors to track how much moisture is left in walls and floors. High-speed fans will make the drying process move faster when airflow is created in the area.
It is possible that after the drying process is completed, your surfaces, floors, and walls may need professional cleaning. Anything damaged by water will need to be professionally cleaned and sanitized to prevent mold growth, and anything wet could begin to have a strong odor – especially if the water was contaminated to certain extents. Because of this, you might require deodorization and odor removal treatments that have antibacterial properties.
While your home might begin to start looking normal again, it may still not be in the perfect condition it was before flooding or damage. Restoration is the final step taken to bring your home back to life. In this process, there may be some minor repairs and carpet or drywall replacement. In some extreme cases, reconstruction of entire rooms may be necessary. In the case of damage from extreme weather, it is important that certain measures are taken to make sure any further damage may happen by supplying a roof tarp.
This may seem like quite a bit of things to handle, but MBC Services will be there to guide you through the process from start to finish.

What Our Clients Are Saying
We hired MBC for two renovation projects - a master bathroom and an exterior patio. Overall we had a terrific experience with the MBC team - every person involved was extremely professional and courteous, and they worked hard to complete both jobs on time and on budget. The quality of the work has been amazing, and the team has been extremely responsive to any follow up questions we've had. I would definitely recommend MBC Services for any large or small projects.
It's rare that one is able to gauge the wisdom of a decision of a chosen General Contractor in a side by side analysis. Due to a tornado destroying much of my neighborhood, I was able to do just that. Neighbors were struggling to get call-backs from their contractors, stay under budget and get work done on time. For me, moving back into my home was a seamless project made more tolerable by the excellent communication, timeliness and attention to detail that we experienced by working with MBC. At every turn, Michael made us feel that all questions were welcomed and encouraged. The quality of the craftsmanship and level of pride in the work being done was always paramount for the entire crew. And when things that I wouldn't have even noticed were not to Michael's level of expectation, they were quickly rectified without issue. Overall, I couldn't be more impressed by MBC's work or recommend them more highly for any sized job.
