This is the Dryfast Water Remediation Team on an emergency water damage call at a Goodwill store in San Francisco, CA. Water from the exterior irrigation system penetrated the exterior barriers causing water damage to the interior framework, interior wall, flooring tiles and down to the concrete foundation slab. The first step at this site is to set-up containment of our work area. This allows our Specialists to work while the store can continue to operate as normally as possible.
Our Specialists can then begin to Demo the affected areas, which entails removing all of the damaged materials and safely disposing of these materials. An important part of the remediation process is the safe disposal of the damaged materials, as well as continuously ensuring that our area is cleaned and organized. This provides a safe area to work in as well as respecting the client’s property.
The water damaged area in the wall is sealed off and tubing attached from the dehumidifier to the affected area. Next the dehumidifier and other drying equipment is started up and begins the drying process for roughly 72 hours, in which our specialists maintain monitoring of this drying process. When the area has been dried and tested for a zero moisture reading, then our construction team will come in and begin to repair the exposed areas in the wall and floor, so that they match the undamaged area.
