Water Damage Remediation

Our techs are highly trained in mold cleanup, and removal. Remediation may be required if some materials are damaged such as carpeting, padding, lower section of drywall and insulation.  Don’t worry, we restore these areas to pre-loss condition.

Structural Drying to Prevent Mold

Mold requires moisture to grow. Extracting moisture from the air inside a home with water damage is just as critical as removing the standing water because the moisture permeates the entire house and the area must be dried properly to prevent mold growth.

Why Our Moisture Detection Technology is More Accurate

If you have standing water it quickly seeps into the walls soaking the trim, drywall, wood framing and insulation. Water wicks up the drywall like a sponge meaning that the damage is not just limited to where the water line was. Water will also seep into many other rooms soaking everything from the carpet or wood flooring to cabinets.

It is critical to have the right tools that can accurately locate what areas are wet. At NextGen we use advanced technology that is so new, many restoration contractors are just learning about it. Our technology can detect moisture that’s hidden deep inside your walls, and we keep our moisture sensors in place during the drying process which means there is no guesswork, we know when it’s dry and won’t support mold growth.

D.A.M.P. Moisture Detection System


NextGen uses DAMP, or better known as Deep Moisture Assembly Profiling. Our sensors captures and logs the moisture readings into a software program. The electronic sensors stay in place as we dry the home, giving us the ability to monitor the progress, document it for insurance purposes, and determine when the structure reaches Dry Standard.

Traditional Moisture Meters


Walls dry from the outside in, so the trim gets dry first, followed by the drywall, followed much later by the wood framing. Within 3 to 5 days, the trim will be at Dry Standard, but since the non-penetrating meter only reads a half inch, the meter is reading the trim and excludes everything behind it. If there is moisture deep in the wall, mold can develop.

How Long Does it Take to Dry After Water Damage?

At NextGen Restoration, we take and will find all the wet water damaged materials in your structure, and we will map each and every wet material as they go from wet and return to Dry Standard. How long it takes is how long it takes the structure to actually dry. Your house determines how long it takes, not an insurance company scheduled for billing or fees. Our cutting-edge procedures guarantee that mold does not have the conditions necessary to grow at any time during our involvement. And our documentation proves it.

Give us a call at NextGen Restoration and we’ll be happy to come take a look at your loss and make sure it gets dried thoroughly, completely, and properly, and professionally.

Does it Damage Drywall to get Wet?

While drywall is pretty sturdy, when it’s exposed to water for too long it can get damaged. It may lose its structural integrity, becoming soft and weak. Depending on what category of water drywall is exposed to, and how wet it got, you may be able to save it. Water will quickly wick up a piece of drywall, soaking it well above the water line it was exposed to during water intrusion. Speed is critical to avoiding mold damage, though. Walls that are wet hold moisture for a long time and mold will start to form inside the walls within 24 to 48 hours.
