Water Damage Restoration
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.
Spring is on its way, and for many homeowners, the end of winter often brings flooded basements in addition to flowers and longer days. When the overnight temperatures begin warming up, frozen ground begins thawing and water makes its way to the lowest point possible. This results in wet basements and hours spent dealing with basement flood cleanup instead of baseball, gardening, or anything else you’d rather be doing.
All too often, homeowners have walked down the steps to their basement only to discover a murky pool of water and basement water damage. Following the path of least resistance, water has a knack for finding holes and cracks in basement walls, leaving pools of water in basement and often the need for professional repairs. Beyond the cracks and holes, which can be found in most basements across the country, basement flooding can typically be attributed to heavy rains, poor drainage around basement walls, or sump pump problems. Sometimes, an unfortunate combination of all of these factors is to blame.
According to Flood Smart, a small 1,000-square foot home with only an inch of water in the basement can result in $10,000 or more in basement flooding repair and restoration costs. Due to the scope of the basement water removal, flood damage cleanup, and possible repairs, you should immediately contact a water or basement restoration specialist if you ever awake one day to find a dirty swimming hole in the basement of your home. With potential causes ranging from faulty plumbing to an improperly sloped foundation, a flooded basement restoration professional will identify and correctly solve the problem in no time at all.
Mold Removal and Remediation
Mold can quickly take root in your home following the introduction of any water source, whether it’s an overflowed toilet, a roof leak, failed basement waterproofing, or a hidden plumbing leak. Mold can spread throughout your home in just 48 hours and pose a number of health risks in addition to damaging your home.
We approach every mold remediation project with a tailored strategy that begins with an inspection and mold removal assessment. We will check for visible signs of mold and water sources, including leaks behind walls and damp subflooring. Several methods can be used for effective mold remediation such as negative air pressure and barriers to prevent mold spores from spreading during the mold cleanup process.
All mold and mold-infested materials will be removed carefully and safely with the use of HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers. Antimicrobial and antifungal treatments will be used to kill mold and prevent new mold from growing after contaminated materials are removed. Items that can be restored will be cleaned and sanitized to remove odors. Once mold remediation is complete, restoration will take place to restore your home fully.
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.
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 Restoration
When drywall is damaged by water, you’ll see brown stains, buckling, or blistering. The same is true of water damage to ceilings, including wood or tile. This may come from a leaky roof, requiring roof repairs as well as water mitigation. Replacing drywall is usually necessary. Painted surfaces may hide water stains. You may want professionals to check for mold and hidden moisture before repairs begin.
Carpet must usually be removed and replaced, including the carpet pad. Inspection of the subfloor should also be done. Call in a professional to assess the damage. Sometimes carpet can be salvaged with special cleaners and equipment, or only damaged areas replaced.
Calling a professional can reduce the time and trouble it takes to take stock of damage, initiate repairs, and get your life back to normal. Always document the damage and check with your insurance agent to see what’s covered. But above all, think safety first during and after home disasters.
