Avoid these risks by getting in touch with the right certified professionals to mitigate the situation immediately. ARM has experienced staff with the knowledge and equipment to treat each matter effectively. The right company will understand which materials must be replaced and which ones are salvageable.

Water Mitigation 

The main focus is to prevent any further damage. Proper water mitigation requires specialized equipment and techniques from certified professionals. It is very important that the job is done the right way and by the right professionals, sooner rather than later to avoid any further or future destructive processes. Water Damage is a major contributor to loss of property. Seeking guidance from experts in the trade is a must. It’s important to know that water mitigation services are specific to ensure that the damage from water does not lead to further issues. Think of water mitigation as more of a temporary solution rather than a permanent one. It is strongly advised to seek a company who can assist you in every step of the way to avoid any setbacks in the restoration process.

Immediately after reaching out to our emergency hotline for assistance one of our mitigation supervisors will be dispatched to the site location. After evaluating the situation our staff member will begin to secure personal belongings by separating the wet versus the not wet, cleaning and disinfecting salvageable items, clearing the affected area which includes removing damaged furniture and materials such as flooring and drywall, and ensuring structural stability of the home or business in preparation for water extraction and structural drying.

Water Extraction

We use insurance approved equipment that is backed up by HEPA certification. Making sure your home or office building is dry and safe requires special certified equipment and technicians. Depending on the size and type of water classification and category, our technicians will go in to extract with either a portable machine or truck mounted unit.

Water can invade your walls, ceiling, insulation, and floors. Metering surrounding areas is a must to see how far the water has migrated. It’s very easy to miss moisture which can lead to health issues and/or a more costly situation if left lingering. Our technicians will locate hidden moisture and either dry, replace, or repair immediately. With water it’s very important to move quickly to limit the amount of damage.

Our highly trained staff is extremely diligent. We take the time to properly evaluate the situation before beginning the extraction process. Above all, we use commercial grade certified equipment and technicians. There is no job too big or too small. The most extreme cases of water damage that we have encountered require the electricity to be shut off. The place of origin from water damage is important to know. Our staff will take proper measures to prevent cross contamination if the water came from sewage loss.

Structural Drying

When it comes to the dry out, our certified technicians get the job done correctly using certified equipment. ARM restoration maintains a highly trained and certified staff. We keep up with the latest industry standards and proven scientific drying methods. The focus here is to assure only clean air is circulating the environment. This is why our equipment is HEPA certified, the most trusted brands by insurance agents around the county. HEPA compliant air scrubbers filter the dust particles from the air and any other contents that become airborne from demolition, water damage, and moisture.

We have inventory of specialized drying equipment ready at a moments notice, from air movers to larger truck mount commercial dehumidifiers. This makes us uniquely qualified to promptly and reliably handle water damage claims of all sizes.
