Insight Restoration- A Proven Process for Basement Water Extraction

Proper management of any basement water extraction job is the key to success. Over the years, we have experienced countless types of water damage, but have found a proven process by leveraging the best practices of the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration).


It is important for us to act fast when you place a call to Insight Restoration. Our crews will arrive fully equipped with the proper equipment to extract any standing water, but first, we need to evaluate the affected areas.

Typically, water can hide in hidden spots such as behind baseboards or under the subfloors. Our technicians utilize moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras to identify the affected areas quickly. They will then create an effective plan that will extract all standing water.

 Water Extraction

Extraction is the most crucial step in removing standing water from your basement. Utilizing professional truck-mounted extraction systems, our technicians strive to remove up to 95% of any standing water present.

We take extra time during this phase to save time during the drying process. The more we remove in this phase, the faster we can dry out the affected areas within your basement.

 Equipment Placement

Certified by the IICRC, Insight Restoration requires that our technicians be fully trained. Using the sizing guidelines per the IICRC, each piece of equipment is placed to help efficiently dry the affected areas.

Our technicians take extra precautions to use only the equipment necessary, finding the right balance between cost savings and effectiveness.

 Record Readings

Every day we will send out a technician to perform the proper moisture readings of the affected areas. These record readings assist our team in knowing when the drying process has been completed.

For insurance claims, we will submit the proper documentation to your insurance adjuster, ensuring that your claim is processed quickly.

 Communicate Timeline

Effective communication is extremely important during the basement water extraction process. That is why we keep our clients aware of each phase of the process, as well as a reasonable expectation of when the project will be completed.

Waterproofing may be the answer to chronic water issues

Waterproofing may be a long-term answer if you find chronic standing water issues. Our technicians will keep an eye out for any leading causes of moisture while mitigating the standing water in your basement, but it may be wise to consider waterproofing when necessary.

There are a variety of waterproofing solutions available, including vapor barrier installation, sealing block walls, insulating crawlspaces, and installation of energy-efficient dehumidifiers.

Although there is not a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to waterproofing, it can be a solution to consider.
