Water damages can be very extensive, but our certified trained professionals are available 24/7 for emergency water damage restoration and water damage repair service. We will minimize the damage with cutting edge technology and stay until it dries out and extract the water. Water damages can be caused by many things; severe weather, slow plumbing leak, even sewage pipe backed up, but when water damage is left unattended it can lead to more extensive damage and becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and hazardous molds.

Water Restoration and Repair Equipment
Water extractors – GC Northwest operates state of the art purple extraction equipment for quick removal of highly flooded areas. These extractors are used during our flood drying services
Moisture meters – GC Northwest has trained technicians that operate moisture meters to evaluate the amount of water that has flooded in damaged the areas. These moisture meters are a very critical part to gauge the drying time. Technicians use these meters to determine when moisture levels are low enough and the rebuild can start.
Infrared cameras – Infrared imaging is the most effective method spotting moisture and allows technicians to identify temperature differences and easily spot damaged areas.
Dehumidifiers – Critical equipment that is used to restore all present materials and structures with water damage. Did you know humidifiers extract water from the affected areas while drying and preventing mildew and mold? They extract water from the air and all areas affected then drained into local drain.
Air movers- technicians will often use air movers to circulate the air in a flooded area so that moisture can be pulled faster and more efficient. Air movers work with the dehumidifier to increase evaporation rate of water in affected areas.
Industrial sump pumps- Our submersible sump pumps can be used for emergency water extraction. They can be used in areas with a large amount of debris without clogging. Sump pumps are commonly used in basements and crawlspaces. They have ability to extract a large amount of water in a short amount of time.
