begged all the, the pads. So once the pad is bagged, we can lay back the carpet in. Generally the carpet, when we roll it like that, it gets wet once again and it kind of from the backing of the carpet goes more to the surface again. So when we lay it back down, we do one more pass over all of the carpet itself. So on the surface of it, so all the carpet is laid back down to where it actually looks as if, um, nothing is wrong with it. It looks somewhat dry and, and it’s laid back down. Only thing different on, on these water damage. Denver jobs is the carpet just doesn’t have pad anymore underneath. This doesn’t have pads. So we did that,

um, removed all the bags, content, stuff like that. So on this particular one we have formulas as to how many air movers, how many dehumidifiers will be needed. Um, in this particular job being that it was spread out over several rooms in almost all of the basement. Um, our formula called for having two dehumidifiers and 10 air movers. Um, so we set the air movers and dehumidifiers up. Um, when we set these up, we put them on, on the surface of the carpet. So we had discussed in previous podcasts on, on why we do that and how the, the physics and the, and, uh, aerodynamics of, of everything and what we do. And of creating a vortex. And so we went ahead and, and did this as well. So, um, 10 air movers, two dehumidifiers, um, quite a bit on this particular water damage. Denver job, we had quite a, quite a bit of a pad that was removed.

So I believe it was roughly about 22 bags of pads. So quite heavy to get a workout. It’s going in the basement. So we’re working going upstairs on this water damage, Denver job. So you get a workout even though you extracted the pad as much as you could, there’s, it’s always some weight with that as well. So we went ahead and did that, did some readings. Um, we always do some readings, see with the humidity is in the, in the air temperature. Um, we do it at the, the effected areas. We go to an unaffected area within the home, do similar readings and then we would do, um, the same readings, temperature, relative new, hit it relative humidity, um, outside as well. So we did that in those three areas and that gives us a starting point and we know where we want to be. So whether we need to add on all the water damage Dev or jobs, you may have to add more equipment, um, or take some equipment away based on, on your readings. So that’s why we at at big foot restoration, like to do readings every day or we just want to make sure things don’t go sideways on Ya and

you can run into mold issues, anything like that. So that’s why we check it every day. We move fans around, move equipment around. Um, this particular area is dry, let’s move it over here and it’s focused on this or this area is maybe more difficult. It’s not drying as well. So going every day allows us to do that, to make adjustments as we go along. So with this particular water damage to Denver job, we go back each day. Um, we were pretty spot on with the equipment in what was needed and, and where it was needed. Um, and we just let the equipment do the work. Um, the great thing about restoration is you have, uh, if you get the right equipment, it dries out and a predictable manner. And so that’s always great to see that. So we went ahead and checked it every day, did our readings, the effected area and affected area outside.

Um, ultimately our goal is to have the unaffected area within the house, um, with the same readings as our affected area. Um, and then we know, um, things are where they need to be. Um, we do have a relative humidity zone we want to get down to and we make sure we hit that. Um, sometimes you can have areas of, of moisture you just missed and then you didn’t catch. And so the relative humidity is not going down to where it should be. And so that it’s all indications on something may not be right. So we do use equipment. Every water damage. Denver job we do, we use the right equipment. We’re used the right, um, procedures to ensure that, that things dry in a timely manner. And that’s our main goal. And if you can’t, you know, get things dry in three to four days on, on almost all water damage, Denver jobs, you know, you’re, you’re kind of doing things incorrectly and need to evaluate how your procedures are ran.

So we rarely run over a four day period. And I actually can’t remember the last one that took longer than four days. So, uh, we’re pretty knowledgeable in how to dry everything out there in a timely manner. So with this particular water damage, Denver job, we had, you know, we had 4th of July plans, but it is what it is in our industry. And so sometimes you just don’t get a, you got to pass on some, uh, some holiday trips that you had planned in order to, to make sure this client, you know, nobody wanted this to happen. Um, it’s our industry. So we want to make sure the clients feel comfortable that we’re going to, we are going to forgo our weekend, our holiday plans and, and come and check on your property because it does mean a lot to us and you as a client, um, I mean a lot to us.

So all of our water damage, Denver jobs, we’re going to make multiple visits day after day, um, and makes sure things are drying correctly and even if that means, uh, forced at July or Thanksgiving or Christmas. So we do know that that, uh, had happens and it’s just the nature of the business. So, um, we want to make our clients, like I said, feel comfortable and know that we care about them and we want to do the job correctly and not leave and say we’ll be back in four days and hope things dry well. So, um, this particular water job, water damage, Denver job, um, did dry as planned. Uh, we got everything, all the equipment pulled four days later. Um, basements may take a little bit longer, but not much, maybe one day, but most of them do dry in that three day period. Um, so this one we pulled the equipment day for. Um, so that was on a Sunday. We went back on that or that was on a Saturday and we went back on a Sunday and Monday, uh, re-installed the pad.


And clean the carpet. So we did that. And so as a, you know, within hasn’t even been a week and they are back to normal content, move back. Um, and they were kind of where they are right now where, um, where the pad, where everything was before they had the water issue. So this particular water damage, Denver job, uh, went great. Going to get a great review from them and, and a great a video testimonial from them and it’s just another happy big foot restoration and repair client and we look forward to continue those clients on. Thank you.
