The restoration team inspects the property, assesses the damage, and sorts out what can be salvaged. The crew then must remove the water to stop further damage and the growth of mold. An electronics team is necessary to remove the electrical appliances safely and see what can be salvaged. The first 72 hours are crucial, so a good network of specialized teams is essential. Items that cannot be salvaged are removed during demolition. Blueprints are helpful when it comes to finding the measurements of each room.
