Water damage always seems to happen at the most unexpected times. Natural disasters and bursting pipes are, unfortunately, things that can happen no matter how prepared you may be and can cause a tremendous amount of destruction in just a few moments.

If you or someone you know has recently dealt with water damage or flooding in the home, and are in the Athens area, we are here to help. While it can be destructive, our experts are highly trained and are equipped with the tools and knowledge to salvage your residence and any possessions that may have been damaged by the water.

Restoration specialists are hard to come by especially in response to water damage which can spread quickly throughout the home. If you live in or around the Athens, Georgia area, IDC is there for you.

The Importance of Professional Water Damage Restoration Services in Athens, GA

It is no surprise to see that DIY restoration projects have grown in popularity over the years. Many people assume they can save some extra cash by rolling up their sleeves and getting the job done all on their own. While this may be an okay option in some restoration projects, the destruction caused by water always requires the attention of an expert. 

As mentioned above, water damage can spread throughout the home very quickly and can certainly cause issues that the untrained eye would miss. A professional restoration company, like IDC in Athens, knows exactly what to look for and how to approach the damage in an efficient and effective manner.

Additionally, water damage that is left untreated can cause even more issues throughout the home. For example, sitting water of any kind can lead to bacteria and mold growth and can create unsafe living conditions.

That is why water damage restoration companies are trained to come and completely gut the room to ensure that every surface is dry and inspected before it is returned to its normal spot.

We assure you that water damage restoration services are best left to the experts. You can sleep soundly knowing that your home is in the hands of professionals who are well-equipped to restore your residence safely.

Water Damage Cleanup Process at IDC Athens, GA

In order to make sure that each of our jobs are completed properly and thoroughly, our experts at IDC in Athens are trained through a specific restoration process. No matter the source of the water or the damage caused, we will do everything we can to get things back to normal quickly.


For starters, we like to complete an assessment of the damage and decide the level of restoration service that may be required. If you are in the Athens area, a quick phone call to alert us of your situation will be enough to get the ball rolling on our inspection.

This initial inspection will not take a lot of time and can be done very quickly after your first call to us. We will take this time to assess all the items and surfaces that have been exposed to the water and we will speak with you to decide which cleaning and restorations service will serve you the best. 

Restoration Process

After we have informed you of the extent of the damage, we get to work immediately. When it comes to water damage, moving quickly is key. We start by removing any of the items in the room that have sustained water damage.

In many water damage cases, there is a chance that things will need to be replaced to ensure that the water cannot spread or cause any further problems after the room has dried up. 

Regardless of what we must remove, we work to ensure that the room is restored completely before you and your family return home. In many cases, water is able to travel quickly through porous materials such as cloth, wood, and drywall, so we are thorough to ensure we remove anything that the water came in contact with.

We then take the time to dry all those damaged materials and clear out any remaining water before moving forward with the repair process. Our promise is to work closely with you and your insurance provider to see what our next steps will be in getting your home back to the way it was.
