Science of Drying Buildings San FranciscoWater Damage and Building and Material Science San Francisco

The greatest threat from water damage is what you can’t see. Water damage remediation must take into consideration not only what has been destroyed, but also what materials have been compromised. We are the Bay Area’s “No. 1” water damage repair professionals with 20+ years of experience in saving property. Our high-tech hyrdrosensors, hygrometers for humidity and infrared cameras for mold contamination compare everything you own with the normal moisture range of materials like wood, drywall, etc. to discover areas of abnormally high moisture content.

We carefully examine the areas beneath your floors and carpets, inside your walls and everything below the roof line. Crawl spaces, cavities, surrounding areas and the interior of furniture are all places where moisture can incubate mold and weaken the structural integrity of your property.

We go the extra mile because we know that even after everything looks normal again, lives may be at risk if your property is not properly dried and treated in the first place.

Before a catastrophe wipes out your property, ask us about your recovery plans for water damage repair and drying, sewage backup cleanup and flood restorations.

Our experts in cleaning and restoration are certified as AMRT- Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians as part of their IICRC Certification.This special certification covers Building and Material Science, which allows our experts to determine precisely how moisture affects different kinds of materials and the structural integrity of buildings.

Components can also fail much later as a result of inadequate treatment of damage from water that went through phase changes (from solid to liquid to vapor) during the disaster, or in the immediate aftermath.

The fact is that some materials undergo permanent alteration that cannot be repaired by drying and must be replaced for the safety of everyone involved.
