Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Find the Cause of Water Damage
By analyzing the situation and consulting with any witnesses, we identify the origin of the flooding and take steps to cut it off.
Water can infiltrate and spread quickly, so this step needs to be done fast, but it also has to be done right. We employ numerous water extraction techniques and technologies that allow us to tailor our response to the unique needs and severity of every call.
Once the water is gone and wet materials have been removed, the next step is to dry it all out. We use devices like air movers, dehumidifiers, wood floor drying systems, heaters, and fans to improve circulation and evaporation. Careful monitoring is used to ensure thorough elimination of moisture, particularly from within walls where damp patches can stay hidden. As part of this step, we also find and remove items and building materials that have been too compromised by water to remain.
Cleaning and Decontamination
Depending on the cause of the flooding, there may be a biohazard risk that has to be addressed. We will thoroughly clean and sanitize the affected area to ensure that no one is put at risk upon return. This includes ensuring that mould and other growths are caught and are stopped in their tracks.
From the moment we arrive, our teams are documenting the situation. By using photographs, statements, and readings from our equipment, we create an accurate assessment of the extent of damage and use this to form an estimate that helps you receive appropriate compensation from your insurance company. Documentation takes place alongside the other steps.

Causes of Water Damage
Toronto’s drains cannot always stand up to heavy rain and may overflow during storms. Without an outlet to drain into, the water will back up into your property.
Cold weather means freezing temperatures and that can lead to pipes bursting.
Cracked foundations, poor grading or weatherproofing, and other problems can allow water to seep into the walls.
Whether the result of a toilet clog, sewer overflow due to weather, or another cause, the result can send contaminated water into your home.
