Water Restoration

water damage to large building in Scarborough, ME

According to data collected by the American Insurance Association, water damage accounts for most claims made in homeowner’s insurance. Water damage can be gradual, from a leaky faucet or a failed plumbing system, or instant from storm water.

If left unattended, the water will damage floor panels, walls, encourage the growth of mold, cause rusting of metallic items, delamination of plywood, and damage other valuables within the interior of your building. In such a scenario, you need to respond quickly to prevent a further damage to your property. One way you can respond to the problem is to contact a water damage restoration company like us to come and fix the problem. Call: 1-888-443-3110

We at Restoration Local provide water damage services like water damage clean up and emergency water removal. We also identify and fix the cause of the water. We have the appropriate machines used for structural drying and moisture meters to locate and remove invisible moisture. The equipment helps in making your interior dry quickly, hence minimizing damage.

Before we arrive on scene, you need to take some actions to prevent more damage. Close your main water supply to prevent more flooding and switch off your power supply to avoid short circuiting and electric shock. You may also clear books, papers, and other fabrics that can get wet or even stain your carpet. Doing this will make water mitigation easy for your service provider.

Flooded Basement Restoration and Basement Flooding Repair

The basement is one of the places in your interior space that is vulnerable to flooding and water damage. This is because water flows smoothly from high grounds to low grounds. In most cases, basement flooding results during the heavy rain seasons. The storm water overcomes the basement’s water-proofing material and forces its way through cracks in the cellar wall. In other cases, basement flooding occurs due to badly sloped lawns. A lawn should slope away from your building, rather than towards the house. A failed plumbing system may also contribute to basement flooding.

Resolving a basement flooding problem is a difficult task to do by yourself. For this reason, you need a water restoration company like us to supervise, remove the water, and clean up the mess. Another reason you should hire a professional service provider like us is that the basement is hard to dry, hence providing a good set up for mold growth. We have necessary equipment that will remove water before it spoils the floor, walls and other valuables within your home. We have dehumidifiers that will remove moisture and curb mold from growing. A water restoration company like us will also help you clean and sanitize the flooded basement walls and floors to prevent accumulation of moisture.

Mold Removal and Remediation

Mold is not just an ugly nuisance, but can be a serious health risk. Some types of mold are quite toxic. All mold produces airborne spores. It usually begins as black spots. These can show up on almost any surface, and continues to grow if untreated. Mold cleanup is especially important inside walls or ceilings where it can continue to spread, increasing health risks, creating foul odors, and rotting away damp wood.

Mold is particularly especially dangerous to anyone with severe allergies or asthma. Almost any home can get mold even under ordinary conditions. All it takes is a little pocket of moisture such as a dripping pipe along with some mold spores from outdoors. It can survive in temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Ordinary mildew is usually on the surface only and can usually be killed and cleaned up with special cleaners or ordinary bleach.

If you suspect you have a mold problem, it’s important to call in trained inspectors as soon as possible. They’ll be able to identify infected areas and being mold remediation. They may recommend cleaning or replacement of building materials. If the mold is severe, local authorities may decide the property is not suitable for living until the mold removal is complete.

Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration

smoke from home fire damage in Scarborough, ME

Restoration after a fire can begin when your fire department tells you it’s safe to return. The first thing you should do is open windows and possibly turn on a fan to clear away any lingering smoke. Smoke is acidic as well as carcinogenic, and can also damage and stain surfaces. It can also contain harmful fumes from other substances destroyed by fire. At times smoke, and the water used to extinguish the fire, can do more damage than the actual flames. Proper fire damage restoration involves treatment for all three.

Don’t eat food that’s been exposed to heavy smoke. You may want to unplug appliances, remove valuables, and leave the home if smoke damage is extensive. Take stock of your belongings and take photos of the damages as soon as it’s safe. Unless the damage is slight, leave the cleanup to trained fire cleanup specialists. Rebuilding isn’t possible until proper restoration is done.

Sewage Cleanup and Restoration

Heavy rain and partially blocked sewers can cause sewage backups and a real mess. If sewage water inside your home isn’t taken care of immediately, your flooring, walls, and personal property can become badly damaged. Your home can also become the perfect environment for the growth of bacteria and mold.

Sewer backups and cleanups should be considered a serious problem deserving of emergency treatment. With the possibility of contamination from bacteria, viruses, other harmful microbes capable of causing serious illness, professional sewage cleanup is always a must. Regardless of whether you have a “clean water” problem caused from a broken faucet or supply line or standing “black water” full of dangerous microbes, a sewage cleanup professional like us will develop the appropriate plan of action for your home.

Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage

floor and wall water damage in Scarborough, ME

While most materials can be damaged by water, drywall is especially susceptible to water. A water damaged ceiling should be repaired immediately as the drywall will absorb water quickly before buckling and giving way. We have extensive experience repairing water damaged drywall and ceilings in addition to water damaged hardwood floors and carpet water damage.

If your home has suffered water damage, our team of experts will work quickly to remove water and moisture from the area before cleaning and disinfecting. Damaged drywall will be replaced and carpet will most likely need to be replaced as well. Depending on the extent of the damage and how quickly it is treated, it may be possible to save hardwood flooring. Don’t delay; contact us today for effective water damage mitigation.
