During hurricane season in Louisiana, it is crucial to know what to do if your home were to flood or sustain water damage during a storm.

After you call a restoration company, a team will evaluate the water damage in your home. The restoration crew will inspect your property and use professional moisture-detecting and thermal-imaging equipment to determine the extent of water damage. This will also determine which components are salvageable and which are not. Then, the crew determines the next steps to restore your home.
Demolition, Drying, and Disinfection
Once the restoration plans have been laid out, the work begins. Our restoration team will use specialized water-extraction equipment to remove remaining water from your home.
CLEAR Restoration ensures that there is no unnecessary removal of your home’s structural components and contents with enhanced drying techniques. However, there will be items that cannot be saved, and the restoration team, in conjunction with your insurance company, will determine which structural components and contents in your home are non-salvageable.
Unsalvageable structural components like drywall and porous flooring will be removed. We keep the demolition area as clean as possible, so the mess is contained to our working area only. We thoroughly check our drying progress on a daily basis to ensure the structural integrity of your home remains as intact as possible and to minimize secondary damage. We want you to feel safe throughout this process.
