Water Damage

Water damage can come from a wide range of sources, and can lead to both major and minor repairs alike. In the Duluth area, we endure violent storms, freezing temperatures, and inconsistent landscapes; All of which play a part in making water damage a common threat to home and business owners.

When dealing with water damage, it is paramount that quick action is taken and a comprehensive inspection of the wet areas is performed. Unchecked water can give way to dangerous mold growth, severe structural damage, and unsafe living environments that lead to further problems for your home, your business, and your family.

To combat the impact that water can have when it affects you, Dryco’s trained staff quickly arrives on-site to evaluate the extent of the damage, stop the water from further harming your property, and walk you through the process of getting your home or business back to normal.

With advanced equipment and experienced crews, Dryco is the Northland’s most trusted source of water removal and restoration.

Our Process

Inspect

The first stage in any water damage situation is the careful and comprehensive inspection of your property. The potential for further complications, costs, and health risks increase as time goes on, so our inspections are always performed promptly by our team of certified and experienced professionals. Once our inspection is complete, you will know exactly what to expect moving forward, and how Dryco will be able to help each step of the way. These in-person evaluations are always free, so there’s no need to worry about letting costs come between your budget and your safety.

Extract

The second step in the water damage process is removing any and all water that remains within your property. Events like floods, burst pipes, and overflows require that emergency measures be taken to eliminate the source of the water before we can extract, but once the source is eliminated, and you are left with standing water that is inflicting damage by the second, time is of the essence. Dryco uses specialized equipment to remove the water within your property as rapidly as possible. This means less damage to your home, business, and belongings, and a quicker timeline to recovery.

Stabilize

Once the water has been removed, all affected contents, especially those that pose potential health risks if left unaddressed for an extended period of time, will be relocated or disposed of depending on their condition. Dryco is always driven to save and restore before we replace, but your safety will always take precedence when determining what can be saved. Once the affected area(s) is secured, drying can begin.

Dry

During the drying stage, we raise the temperature, create air flow, and dehumidify the wet area(s) in order to encourage the dry-out of all affected structures and contents.

water-process-3

Treat

After Drying is complete, we disinfect all surfaces to counteract any unwanted bacterial growth that may have appeared as a result of the uncontained water. This stage is especially important for Category 2 and Category 3 water damage scenarios like sump pump failures and sewage backups, as they spread harmful contaminants throughout your home or business. Once the areas have been treated appropriately, your home will be secure and free from unwanted moisture.
