Whether it is a broken water pipe, frozen pipe or sewer back up, National Fire & Water Repair can respond 24/7 to help you clean up and dry out your property and return it to a safe and sanitary condition.  We will do the initial inspection to take readings and map out where the water has permeated.  With this information, we will extract the water remove materials which are not salvageable, apply antimicrobial to prevent mold growth and set up and monitor drying equipment to dry the remaining structure.  We use the newest and most powerful equipment in the industry which means your damage will be dried quickly, usually in 3 days or less.  Once the drying is complete, our expert crews can restore and rebuild the area damaged to better than its pre-damaged state.

The steps to water damage dry out:

  • Stop the water source
  • Identify the type of water (white, grey or black)
  • Check for other dangers particularly electrical
  • Test the areas to identify all areas and all materials affected
  • Extract water
  • Remove non salvageable materials and contents
  • Clean and sanitize affected materials
  • Move/block remaining contents
  • Set up drying equipment such as dehumidifiers, blowers and air scrubbers
  • Monitor until the area can be certified as dry

BEFORE ENTERING THE AFFECTED AREA - check to see If any dangers remain from:

  1. Water continuing to enter the area
  2. Possible shock or electrocution hazards from affected electrical systems, light fixtures affected by water, etc.
  3. Exposure to dangerous chemicals or biohazards due to the type of water (sewer vs. clean) or material it has collected or released during the event
  4. Possible collapse of structural or sagging finish construction materials such as drywall ceilings, etc.

If you are uncertain about any of these conditions. DO NOT enter the area.



  1. Remove undamaged contents from the area (leaving these items in high humidity can cause damage to them as the area dries).
  2. Wipe dry all affected wood contents and non-porous contents including wall hangings (never leave wet clothing, fabrics or paper products in the area because they can develop mold quickly).
  3. Remove excess water from upholstered furniture, area rugs, etc. and allow to dry by exposing as much surface area to air movement (never use your vacuum cleaner unless it is specifically labeled for wet use).
  4. Place wood or foil between furniture and wet carpeting.
  5. Remove electronic items from the area to a dry area (do not turn them on until they have been deemed dry).
  6. Do not dispose of contents until you have photographed them, and your adjuster has approved it.


  1. Pump out. mop, wipe or blot floors and walls to remove excess water.
  2. Increase air circulation in the affected areas.
  3. Turn on air conditioning to aid in the drying process.
