We respond to all Aspects Of Water Damage Restoration

Dryfast's Professional Water Damage Restoration Technicians are certified and experienced to manage all types of water and flood damage to your home or business. An outline of the ten step water and flood damage restoration process we follow is detailed below, so that you know what to expect when you engage our water damage restoration services.
Water Damage Assessment | Our first step is to always assess the damage and use our specialised instruments and monitors to map out the extent of the damage.
Define Scope Of Works | We carefully plan the water extraction, drying, cleaning and restoration program that will be required to address the specific water damage or flood damage that has affected each client. We can provide detailed water and flood damage assessment and can provide restoration outlines to your insurance company to support any claims. At this stage we can provide fairly accurate outlines of estimated costs and the time required for the different phases in the restoration program.
Water Extraction | We use specialised water extraction vacuum equipment with a significant amount of airflow and vacuum presser to lift the maximum amount of standing water possible.  By removing excess water we can significantly reduce secondary damage and positively affect the amount of drying time needed to bring the building and its contents to an equilibrium moisture content.

Water Extraction

Controlling Microbial Contamination, Water Damage Odor and Control Of Air Quality | We use environmentally friendly antimicrobial solutions  to sanitise, control and reduce the spread of bacteria to water damaged affected surfaces, protecting against secondary problems of mold and mildew. We use treatments to kill wet odours and where there is high risk of reduced air quality we use Air Filtration Devices to reduce air contamination from reduced air quality.
Wet Surface Drying | We manage airflow, temperature and humidity using specialised Air Movers and Dehumidifiers and other equipment required for the different classes and categories of water damage. Controlling each of the required elements we are able to dry wet carpets, water damaged underlay and other building materials such as timber and concrete in the most cost efficient manager. Where required we lift wet carpet and wet underlay to maximise drying of these and also the affected subfloor.

Wet Surface Drying

Drying Of Structural and Commercial Materials
| Advanced drying systems are used to dry walls, beams, joists and other structures that require industrial strength drying and can not be effectively dried by standard Air Movers.
Content Protection and Restoration | Before we start the water extraction process we move all furniture and other valuable items from the vicinity of the water damage, in order to save them from being damaged or to minimise the damage. Where this is not possible we elevate furniture and valuables to minimise water absorption and damage. We can evaluate the effect of water damage on content and can organise for restoration where content is salvageable.  This includes cleaning of upholstery, carpet colour repair, steam cleaning dried carpet, repair of water damaged art work and the like. We can take rugs and other items offsite for drying and cleaning. Where we deem water damaged carpets and wet underlay  to be unsalvageable we can organise to remove water damaged carpet and can professionally replay the carpets and underlay.
Structural Restoration |  Our certified Water Damage Restoration Technicians are skilled to manage restoration programs end to end. From demolition work, through to the removal and relaying of floor boards. We can organise for structures to be rebuilt, replastering and painting.  We repair water damaged roofs and ceilings and provide solutions for water ingress issues. We have a network of professional trades that understand water damage and how to best manage repair or constriction.
Ongoing Monitoring | We monitor the restoration program from drying right through to cleaning, repairs, rebuild and handover, and make alterations as required according to our findings on each monitoring visit.  We keep our clients informed on our progress and report any issues upfront with a detailed plan on how these will be managed.
Reporting | We are able to provide final reports of work undertaken and the justification behind actions taken. This reporting assists with insurance claims and lends itself to a quicker and smoother settlement process. We are happy to work with assessors and loss adjusters and understand their requirements.

Mold Inspection and Report

Typical remediation job will involve the following phases in San Francisco.

(a) Gathering information
(b)  Initial site visit
(c)  Report of findings
(d) Perform remediation
(e) Clearance of test results
(a) Gathering information

The first contact with most mold jobs starts with a phone call where the client explains the situation at hand and requests if we can assist. A professional remediator will adopt a methodical approach to new jobs due to:
Ensuring personal safety
Duty of care
Legal requirements
Dryfast will ask the client sufficient information to provide us with a good idea of the classification, PPE required, sampling strategy, equipment required, etc.
Determine level of mold damage you have!
Level 1
Normal conditions, no mold damage. Surface samples return very low to non-detectable traces of fungi. Fungi detected indoor originates from outdoors.
Level 2
Small area of visible mold. Less than 1 square meter in area. Spot cleaning and minor mitigation required.
Level 3
Serious mold damage over a period of time. Visible mold growth clearly visible on less than 25% of all surfaces or not greater than 100 sq ft. Usually found in situations where there has been excessive moisture that has been trapped or generated indoors for an extended period of time. Building materials and contents may have sustained more than surface damage with some penetrating moisture and mold growth. Mold remediation required by trained technicians.
Level 4
Severe mold damage affecting structural integrity of building materials such as wall and ceiling linings. Visible mold growth occurs on greater than 25% or more than 10sqm of interior surfaces. Structural materials most likely have high moisture content and require specific drying. Mold remediation and structural repair by trained personnel required.

The size (how widely disseminated within the building structure) and severity (is mold visible in a small area or spread over a multitude of surfaces and items) of the mould contamination will determine if the client requires a “Mold Remediator” to treat the situation and offer general advice to mitigate further problems. Alternatively a “Mold Assessment” will be suggested which includes initial site visit, limited mold sampling and written report. Details on mold assessment are included below.
