5 Reasons to Hire a Water Damage Expert

Did a recent flood or leak cause water damage to your house? Did a pipe burst in your home, leading to water damage in the basement and other parts?

If so, you need the help of a professional to restore it. Below, we look at some reasons you should hire professionals.

Which services does a water damage expert provide?

A water damage expert will offer many services, including water extraction and drying, removal of damaged materials, disposal of hazardous wastes, and restoration of your home.

They will also provide advice and guidance on preventing future water damage. Here’s how a restoration project typically works.


The first step is an inspection, during which the expert will evaluate any visible damage. Next, they will examine walls and floors for signs of moisture. Plus, they will check the water contamination source to nip the problem from the root.

Water Extraction

It’s crucial to remove any standing water as soon as possible. So, the team will use special equipment to extract your house’s standing water.

Drying and Repair

The water damage experts will use specialized equipment to dry the area. Air movers, humidifiers, and air scrubbers are the common tools experts use.

They will also clean your carpets, furniture, and other items affected by water damage. The expert will also repair any damaged walls or floors so that your home looks as good as new.

5 reasons you need an expert

When your belongings are destroyed with water, and your walls have become victims to mold, taking the DIY cleaning route is neither safe nor helpful. Instead, it would be best if you had a professional intervention. Here’s why.


No matter how bad the water damage in your home is, an expert would have already seen and dealt with something similar. So they will know what to do.

At Texas Riviera Restoration, we have dealt severe water damage in Corpus Christi. So, regardless of the severity of water damage in your home, we’ll always have a plan for restoration and repair.

Specialty Equipment

LGR dehumidifiers and desiccant dehumidifiers are the tools of choice for water damage restoration. They have a high evaporation rate, which helps dry water-damaged walls and floors.

An expert will have the right equipment and know how to use it correctly and safely. At Texas Riviera Restoration, all our technicians know the ins and outs of operating this specialized equipment.


At Texas Riviera Restoration, your safety is our priority. We ensure all the affected areas are free of hazardous materials and completely restored to their pre-damage condition.

We also use only the safest methods and cleaning solutions so that you don’t have any health issues. For example, our cleaning methods are toxin-free and secure, in line with the guidelines set by the IICRC.

Quick Restoration

If you attempt to restore your home yourself, it will take much longer than if you hire an expert. However, professionals have the skills and the tools to complete restoration quickly.

Also, the experts can identify potential problems before they become serious. For instance, at Texas Riviera Restoration, we look for mold and mildew growth signs.

Since we use specialized equipment, we can spot spores and young mold that might not be visible to the naked eye. By catching the problem before it amplifies, we eliminate the risk of health hazards and costly repairs later.

Salvage Your Belongings

After a water-related emergency, it might seem like you need to throw away everything in your home and start over. However, this is only sometimes the case.

There’s a lot we can save with proper cleanup and repairs. When you hire us for water damage restoration and repair, we will try to salvage most of your belongings.

As for carpets and upholstery, we check for signs of mold and mildew. If your carpets need more mold to be removed, we will advise you

to replace them. Otherwise, we will use advanced cleanup methods to restore them to their original appearance.
