The definition of water remediation is to remedy or reverse any damages caused by water. In simpler terms, water remediation is the process of cleaning, drying, sanitizing, and restoring any damages that have been caused by an accumulation of unwanted water in a home or business.
In any water damage case, it’s important to act quickly to efficiently clean up the water and prevent further damages from accumulating. If the water damage is not remediated quickly, the affected area will provide the perfect breeding ground for mold. In order for mold to grow in a home, the spores must have organic material, such as wood, drywall, insulation, etc, and moisture. Once provided these two elements, mold can begin to grow as quickly as 24 to 48 hours.
If you have experienced extreme water damage from a flood or other natural disaster, it can leave you hopeless and believing that the only solution remaining is total demolition. At Kidd’s Restoration, we have developed a fool-proof water damage remediation process that follows industry standard to restore your home back to the safe haven it once was.
The first step in the water damage remediation process is inspecting the water loss. During this step, our professional team will identify the class and category of the damages, which will help determine the plan of action to remediate the damages.

The second step in the water remediation process is removing all standing or excess water from the affected area. Our team will use pumps and vacuums to remove the water from the property. It’s important to begin the extraction process as quickly as possible to reduce the risk of bacteria and mold growth.
The third step in the water remediation process is drying the structure and removing all trace of moisture from the affected area. This can be achieved by circulating warm dry air onto the affected area while regulating humidity with a dehumidifier. This is the most important step because proper drying will significantly reduce the risk of future mold growth and structural damages. The drying process could take days to weeks for completion.
The fourth step in the remediation process is cleaning and sanitizing the affected area and all belongings that may have been affected by the water. Our team will treat all affected textiles, such as carpets, clothing, curtains, or furniture with an antimicrobial treatment. Our team will also utilize air scrubbers to remove any lingering moisture or mold spores from the air.
The final step in the water remediation process is restoring the structure back to a livable home. If any drywall, insulation, or flooring was removed it will all be replaced in this step.
