The Water Restoration Process

  1. Water Damage Inspection – After receiving your call, we dispatch a water damage technician to your location. Upon arrival, the water source is shut off if needed. We then inspect the property to identify all moisture-affected areas and determine the extent and severity of damage.
  2. Water Extraction / Water Removal – To save your space, we start with water extraction, or water removal services. Pumps, vacuums, and mats are brought in to eliminate water.
  3. Damaged Building Material Removal – In order to make way for thorough drying, any irreparably damaged building materials are removed.

We used First Restoration for our repairs after we had severe water damage in our upstairs bathroom and basement. I have nothing but good things to say about our experience with their services. Craig Holland was our project manager and he was amazing, a really hard worker and extremely reliable. He kept us informed every step of the way, and was always quick in responding to our many questions. We have had bad experiences with companies in the past who have not shown up or who did not follow through with their commitments. So it was a pleasant change to get such good service! In addition to Craig, the subcontractors who came out were also top notch, and Craig was in regular contact with them whenever needed. I highly recommend Craig and First Restoration Services.

After recently experiencing extensive water damage in my home, the mitigation team arrived quickly and promptly. Once areas had all been thoroughly dried and prepped, the contractor-in-charge, Craig Holland, scheduled and supervised the reconstruction crew. Each person I encountered was professional, skilled, hard-working, compassionate and personable. The job was completed in an expedient manner, and my house was restored back to its original condition. This company is now on my speed-dial, and I have highly recommended their services to others.

From the moment we called, the First Restoration Services team responded in a professional and timely manner. They came in less than two hours and began mitigation upon arrival. They were careful in moving our possessions and thorough in setting up their equipment. The staff completely covered the process, answered all our questions and put us at ease in a respectful and courteous manner. Subsequently, they performed all their tasks expeditiously and left the area ready to be restored. In addition, they communicated with our insurance company and us, providing a complete well-documented account of their work as well as a detailed estimate of restoration costs. First Restoration Services could not have done a better job. We recommend them highly.

We have enlisted the aid of 1st restoration’s services on two occasions. The first mess was a kitchen leak and Dawson responded. As with the second mess we encountered, the service was prompt, thorough, and completed in a timely manner. Our second semi- disaster was a leak in our downstairs laundry room. Ryan responded and brought with him industrial strength drying equipment. After Ryan and team tore up the laundry room and allowed it to dry. Daniel was tasked with arranging for the repairs. Daniel was outstanding to work with and was very concerned with things being done properly. We are completly satisfied with 1st restoration and would recommend the company in a heart beat.

They show up on time, they keep the client and the insurance adjusters in the loop every step of the way, and complete the job in a timely and professional manner. If disaster strikes in your household… don’t take my word for it, give them a call! You will see for yourself why they are the best of the best… I really cannot sing their praises enough. Thanks FRS staff for always taking care of us and our clients!

After a bad rainstorm one night we noticed water within the interior portion of our garage. After a week or so of drying out we noticed black mold. We made the call to First Restoration based off a recommendation from a friend. Dawson was assigned to our water damage/mold issue. He was extremely professional and his response time was unlike anything I’ve experienced. From the time we placed the call to visiting our home was just a few hours. He inspected the damage and then laid out the next steps for the project. The project was finished in less than 24 hours. He followed up on the water damage, picked up the equipment and cleaned the area professionally. The price was extremely reasonable. In summary, I will use their services again!
