Frequently Asked Questions
Firstly, it's important to underscore that each situation is different, but there is a specific flow to our procedures.
Total Care Restoration’s Restoration Process
- Before we start work, we must have work authorization forms signed by all parties.
- Find the source of the water. The longer water is left standing, the more bacteria starts to grow, so finding the water source must be done quickly as possible.
- Stop any remaining active water flows.
- Initiate the drying process by letting the water dry out with special equipment, which includes dehumidifiers that help expedite the drying-out process.
- Monitor the equipment every 24 hours to ensure that the affected areas dry at the appropriate speed.
- Lastly, there is a thorough final inspection that confirms that the affected areas are dry, including signing a completion sheet.
No two restoration projects are the same, but some can take as little as five days. More information is available from your account manager.
The Institute of Inspection and Restoration Certification(IICRC) provides a high set of standards for fixing water damage, and it includes a rigorous final exam. Our account managers and technicians have proudly passed the Institute of Inspection and Restoration’s certification process.

Again, this depends on the amount of damage, but you can typically stay in your home if it doesn't require reconstruction. It's essential to keep in mind that construction and the dehumidifying machines can be very loud. There are also issues of air movement that some customers feel is not liveable. Again, it entirely depends on how comprehensive the restoration is.

2. Shut off the main water valve if possible and accessible.
3. Remove excess water with towels or mopping, the more you remove immediately, the better.
4. Put up a barrier between the wet floor and any furniture legs. Things like plastic cups and even aluminum foil work.
5. Remove any colored items from the floor, including anything that you think may run colors. Scour your home for magazines, books, rugs, and toys.
6. Don't turn on household appliances if the water has soaked the walls or is coming through the ceiling.
7. Stagnant air and water are the perfect environment for molds to start growing, so start cleaning up as soon as possible and get some fans blowing for airflow before our crew gets there.
8. Move anything of value to a dry area to further avoid damage.
9. Hang wet upholstery including curtains, rugs, and cushions (separate the cover and the cushion itself) to dry.
