Many homes and businesses experience water damage to some degree. The majority of these types of damages are a result of some type of plumbing failure. When flood damage occurs, it’s important that you locate a trained professional to help fix the problem correctly. Water damage is progressive and items that could be restored within the first 48 hours may not be restored if emergency response is delayed.
Although you might be tempted to use a shop vacuum or call a company that only has equipment to dry carpet, you should consider that water will soak into walls and travel under base molding and sill plates. It will penetrate through floor coverings into sub-floors, even causing much damage to rooms below.
In addition, if humidity inside the structure is not controlled, items that were not damaged from the original flood damage could be damaged as a result of absorbing moisture from the air. Structures that are not dried out quickly and properly can become a food source for mold growth, which may require professional mold removal.
Total Restoration Services Group LLC will do a complete assessment and can lower the risk of additional damages that will lower restoration costs. We can prevent your water damages from developing into a much more serious health problems, such as mold-related illnesses.

In the event of flood damage, do the following:
- Stay calm! Call Total Restoration Services Group
- Make sure the water source is turned off. This will help contain the damage.
- Turn off the breaker in the damaged area before you unplug or remove any electrical devices located on the wet carpet.
- Place aluminum foil under the legs of any furniture that is in contact with wet carpet. This might help prevent furniture stains on your carpet.
- Lift draperies away from wet carpet.
- Pin up upholstered furniture skirts which may get wet.
- Remove books, shoes, paper goods, fabrics, potted plants, and other items which may stain wet carpet.
Do not attempt the following:
- Don’t use your home vacuum, since electrical shock may result, as well as certain damage to the equipment itself.
- Don’t place newspaper in traffic areas to walk on, since newspaper ink transfers easily to the wet carpet fibers and may result in permanent staining.
- Don’t walk on carpet any more than necessary. This will keep the damage from spreading to unaffected areas.
By utilizing our state-of-the-art drying equipment, Total Restoration Services Group LLC can completely dry and restore water damaged surfaces. Proper structural drying methods are more affordable and less time consuming than some traditional techniques.
Once the excess water has been thoroughly removed from all flooring surfaces, the structural drying begins. A properly planned structure dry-out and dehumidification process provides cost reduction along with decreasing the drying time and reducing the potential of mold growth.
After the extraction process, the next step is to set up a system of high velocity air movers efficiently drying the structure while removing the excess moisture. High efficiency LGR and desiccant dehumidifiers are placed throughout the site to remove the moisture in the air. This dehumidification process is critical.
