Stop Further Water Damage

When you’re not sure where the water is coming from, rest assured, our experienced and certified technicians can find the source and affected areas. When you run the risk of further damage, our team can help you mitigate it. If special items are in danger of being damaged, our specialists can protect them. At PHC Restoration, we call this the “triage” stage of emergency water damage restoration. During this time we create a custom water mitigation plan that fits your needs and gets you dry fast.

Extract Standing Water

Water removal is a critical initial step. Our experienced Water Damage Restoration team determines what can be saved and what needs to be removed. The source of water and type of materials will decide if restoration, mold remediation or demolition is the best course of action. Before demolition begins, we protect adjacent areas to ensure we don’t cause any further damage to your property. As a general rule, we take the least aggressive approach and attempt to restore first.

Set Up Drying Equipment

To begin the drying process we use dehumidifiers and air movers to dry the structure. Equipment will remain in place for 3-5 days until we reach desired humidity and moisture level goals.

Prepare for Repairs

A PHC Restoration Project Manager will prepare a detailed repair estimate detailing restoration costs to send to your insurance company for approval. An invoice for emergency services and detailed documentation supporting the invoice will also be sent to your insurance adjuster once the structure is dry.

Water Damage Restoration FAQs

What makes laminate flooring so susceptible to water damage?
To answer that, it’s easiest to look at what laminate is typically made of: a base layer of MDF (medium-density fiberboard) or hard fiberboard embossed with a laminated vinyl sheet that looks like wood or tile. Basically, it’s made out of cardboard, which is a porous material that doesn’t hold up to water very well.
What is water damage restoration?
The process of drying building materials affected by water through methods such as extraction, demolition, dehumidification, and air movement.
What is the typical cost for water damage restoration?

The typical cost for water damage restoration depends on the type of damage and the materials affected. An average residential water damage mitigation invoice can run anywhere from $4,000 to $7,000. Again, that number can be more or less depending on the severity of damage and square footage affected and only includes services such as water extraction, selective demolition, and drying equipment rental. Learn more about water damage restoration cost.

How to hire a water damage restoration service?
While quick action is required, there’s time to do some research to decide which restoration company is right for you. You can ask your insurance agent for a referral by asking who they would trust to work in their home of office. From there you may receive a list of a few local companies. Research those companies online. Look for real photos of their team and their job sites. Read their Google reviews and customer testimonials. Research them at to iicrc.org to find out what certifications they hold. And finally, if your project might exceed $30,000, check your state’s General Contractor Licensing Board to verify the company holds a valid General Contractor’s license.
How long does water damage take to dry out?
On average, drying equipment needs to run for 3-5 days to achieve dry standards.
What should I do immediately after water damage?

Upon finding an active leak, shut off the water. If you are not able to turn off the water at the source of the leak, turn off the main valve. Then, call an experienced water damage restoration company to perform extraction, selective demolition, and drying. If you are filing an insurance claim, notify your agent that you’ve experienced property damage.
