Allowing a cleaning and restoration contractor to come into your home requires a level of trust since they are working in your home among your valuable possessions. At Fairfield County Disaster Restoration in Fairfield County, we understand how valuable your home is to you. Thus, you deserve to know exactly what happens when a cleaning and restoration contractor restores water damage in a home. Below are the five basic steps that we follow in the water damage cleanup process.

Inspection And Assessment

The first step of the restoration process is determining the extent of the damage and developing a restoration strategy. This occurs in the initial inspection and assessment of the home. One of our restoration specialists will come to your home and thoroughly inspect the effects of the flood. They will then be able to give you a preliminary quote on the price and expected time needed to get the job done.

Water Removal And Extraction

Once a plan has been put in place, the next step is removing the floodwater as quickly as possible. To do this effectively, we have powerful pumps and vacuums designed for water removal that can pump thousands of gallons of water out of your home. We emphasize beginning this process as quickly as possible to minimize the overall damage to your home.

Drying And Dehumidification

Once the bulk of the water is removed, our next step is drying out the remaining moisture. To do this, we utilize industrial size fans and dehumidifiers. There is no more effective way to ensure your home is dried out quickly and safely.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

Once the water has been removed, our emphasis shifts to cleaning and sanitizing your home. This is a crucial step of the water damage restoration process because floodwater often contains harmful contaminants. These contaminants can cause discomfort, illness, and even death in the most severe cases. Because dirty floodwater can be so dangerous, the cleaning and sanitizing aspect of the restoration process is critical, so that your home is safe again after a flood. We make sure to never skimp on this step so your home is clean and sanitary.


The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business. Either way, we will do what it takes to make your home just like it was before the flood.

If your home is flooded, we hope you don’t hesitate to give us a call for help. Our team of restoration experts will make sure your home receives the best care possible and that you feel comfortable throughout the entire process.
