Water Damage Restoration Professional Network

Water Damage Restoration Professional Network

Water Damage Mitigation Is Founded In Science

The water damage restoration industry is headed by scientists.  The IICRC certified professionals who operate within the water mitigation industry practice a science known as psychrometrics. We are highly skilled contractors trained to perform in high stress situations while providing emergency services for your home or office.

What distinguishes water mitigation contractors from other kinds of contractors is the nature of providing emergency water damage services.  To better serve our customers, we must have and maintain a fluid standard operating procedure.  This allows us to be flexible, direct and accurate at the same time as we apply the science of water damage mitigation.

Water Damage Restoration And Mitigation Logic

I have always attended live classroom trainings my IICRC water damage related certifications.  In class we would conduct experiments by breaking off into groups.  After all the groups had their problems solved, each group would present their solution to the class.  Without fail, if there were four groups, we found four different but correct approaches to solving the problem.







Each group demonstrated how to restore balance to the indoor environment.  Psychometrics, or the science of water damage restoration, is algebraic because we are always looking to balance the equation in terms of the humidity and excess water within a dwelling. At Flood Metrix we determine a of course of action based on science to achieve a result.

Masters Of Mitigation

Water damage mitigation is a game of chess.  It is literally the water mitigation professional versus the actual water mitigation problem.  In a game of chess there are different pieces such as ponds, bishops, rooks, knights, king and a queen and so it is with the professional affiliations of a water damage company such as Flood Metrix.  To better serve the Flood Metrix customer, we take time to network with like-minded professionals qualified to serve our customers in times of need.  Like a game of chess, each referred professional ready to come in and play their role in restoring your home or office like new or better.

When a customer experiences a flood or water damage there are several trade skills necessary for completing their project.  A good water damage restoration contractor should strive to be the entire solution for their customer.  Striving to become the complete solution to your customers problem requires you to develop a network of professionals who reflect the same standards and qualities reflected by brand.  Metrix adds value to our customers industry through the power of relationship.   By creating something that is strong enough make other people want to spread the word.  One can only imagine the fortune and goodwill behind having a customer buy into your business. 

Homeowners love a connected contractor.  A contractor who already has an established network of professionals they trust enough to recommend.  Homeowners want to be able to quickly check out sources from somebody they know and trust.  Such resource provides options, insight, and reassurance on with how to proceed in a state of emergency.  This is important because it requires a lot requires a lot of effort a lot of energy to help bring someone back from the experience of a water damage or flood.

This is why Flood Metrix is always looking to hire qualified talent and investors.  We are also always looking for businesses to network with, in order to benefit from the power of professional affiliation.  Among the many ways businesses can benefit and prosper by applying the principles of networking is the power to generate awareness, sells, and long-term customer loyalty.









Becoming a part of the community consciousness as a recognized brand that can be trusted has less to do with time than we often believe.  Contractors commonly believe that it takes 20 years or longer to become a reputable and recognized local business.  Actually, this is not so much of a time factor, as it is a factor of organization and refinement.  Refining and expanding your capabilities as a professional to be able serve the water damage industry and the people who you serve in a more complete way.

Inherent to this principle, we reap an additional value not just in cash form, in other words, how do you put a number on a person’s loyalty to your brand? At this point in technology, a person can follow, like, share and comment on social media, but never make a purchase.  However, the investment of their attention and engagement does have value or power to influence someone else who does purchase.

Basement Water Damage Fairfax VA

Basement Water Damage Fairfax VA

Basement Water Damage Fairfax VA 

The source of this water damage was a failed sprinkler system. Because the water originated outside of the property, most homeowners insurance will not cover this type of loss unless you have an additional flood damage policy.

If you have a basement, live in Fairfax VA & don’t have a flood damage policy, I recommend creating an account at floodmetrix.com/registration.  With this account you can start collecting points by posting your customer affiliate link in the comments section on any social media @metrixoverthematter and YouTube.  Points earned can be exchanged for cash and services such as water damage restoration.

For this basement flood mitigation project, my biggest obstacle was moving enough of the customers property out of their flooded basement to ensure a successful water damage restoration.

Content manipulation is a line item used when a water damage protocol requires moving a customers’ property or “contents.”

There is also a specialty service in the damage restoration industry known as a “pack-out.”

Pack-out is the detailed process of professionally packing, moving, organizing & storing a customers’ property until such time that the water damage property can be restored to its previous condition.

To optimize this project I opted for a pack-out.

And here is where we can begin to explore to beauty of basement water damage restoration in Fairfax VA, because it connects with so many other specialty trades such as plumbing, electrical, hvac, remodeling and more.

The water damage industry, being service based, thrives of networking & referral business.

Our industry is designed for a water damage contractor to make a profit from sub-contractors and referral bonuses.  This practice is especially useful for small owner/operator size businesses as it promote high efficiency and profitability.

 in In Fairfax VA, never refer a business or a contractor to your customer who you can’t vouch for, bc its your reputation on the line.

Most water damage mitigation companies don’t begin offering pack out service until they also offer fire damage services due to the nature of work.  PSI is a respected and reputable business offering fire damage restoration and other specialty restoration services & is a featured water mitigation pack out referral partner for this Fairfax VA water damage mitigation.

The PSI crew really did a great job and made working together on this flooded basement project more fun.

One of the biggest takes always I got from studying this project is the power of making a positive impression on a customer and establishing trust as soon as possible on a water damage project in Fairfax VA.

The service industry is reputation and relationship based.  All service-based businesses share this one common thread.

The template for building a successful service-based business/water damage restoration business already exists. There is no need to reinvent the wheel, but we can innovate to serve our interests and serve our customers.

The impression I want to leave my audience with today is that not only am I a professional, but I’m also a pleasure to be around. I think of myself as a blue-collar executive and recognize the value I bring to my customers, partners & to the entire water damage restoration industry as a true polished professional.

“Basement water damage in Fairfax VA is 60% personal 40% business”

Therefore, I always aim to provide the Metrix customer with outstanding service, including an overall excellent customer experience.

After all of the salvageable contents were packed out, we could begin with removing the water damaged/unsalvageable materials.

These materials included the water damaged carpet, pad, tack strips, base boards, drywall and wet insulation.

The next step to mitigate and remediate this flooded basement was to clean and decontaminate the floor and structural frame.  This process includes a HEPA extraction, an aggressive cleaning method of the stud wall cavity and floor slab, plus the application of an anti-microbial.

Once all of the demo and cleaning had been completed, the water mitigation/remediation phase of the project of officially completed and structural drying could officially begin.

Drying the flooded basement only took 3 days and no specialty drying equipment was needed.

I had a chance to interview the woman of the house.  I explained to her that I believe that there are certain actions every contractor can take to put their customer at ease and build up as much trust in as little time as possible. She told me…

“It happened very quick, once you spoke to our insurance adjustor, she told us this guy knows what he’s doing and he has our go ahead”

I want to thank this customer for Choosing Metrix over the Matter for their flooded basement restoration needs.
