The rainy season is known for bringing life into our surroundings. In some parts of the country, however, the rain is known for bringing havoc and damage. This is the set of the package that Mother Nature has to offer to us. People living in flood-prone areas know all too well the effects of flooding.
Whenever there is flooding or excess rainfall, water may get to your house denying you and your beloved ones a chance to enjoy the comfort of your home. Flood water is known for damaging anything that gets in its way. Floods are brought about by excess rainfall in areas with inadequate drainage systems. Sometimes floods are adamant and exceed the flooding barriers that people or authorities put to prevent damage.
Rainfall is not the only known cause of water damage. Sometimes heavy leaking pipes may cause water damage to a house. This is especially worse if the leakage is big. It is important to get water damage cleanup services as soon possible to prevent further damage. Restoration Local provides water damage restoration services, and we advise homeowners to call us at 1-888-443-3110 for our emergency water removal services. This is to ensure that minimal damage to the property is done and other water-related hazards are avoided.
Flooded Basement Restoration
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 exists naturally in every place and is hard to eliminate. Wet and damp conditions provide an excellent setting for the rapid growth of mold. Exposure to mold spores can cause health effects like coughing, sneezing, skin irritation, and other allergic reactions. The health effects are severe to allergic individuals and those whose immunity is compromised.
Mold spreads quickly and hence needs a fast action to save your interior space from mold contamination. Mold removal and remediation require some specialized equipment to seal the infected place such that the mold does not spread to other parts of the building. You also need pressure machines to pump in clean air while pumping out contaminated air. After cleaning and eliminating contaminated air, you will need microbial agents to clean mold stains, make the affected room resistant to water, and ensure the HVAC systems is mold-free. The task is quite challenging and often requires an expert to help manage the mold if its level in your living space is already noticeable.
Therefore, if you suspect that mold has grown in your interior space, it would be wise to call a restoration company like us to help you remediate the mold in your interior space. We will supervise the presence and cause of mold damage in your home. We will also help you remove the indoor air, clean the places and materials that have mold on them, and provide a long-term solution to prevent future mold growth.
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 & Restoration
A sewer that’s been backed up due to clogged or damaged drains is one of the most unpleasant situations you’ll face in the home. The damage could be in the home plumbing, in buried septic tanks, or the pipes leading to the city sewer. It will take trained and licensed plumbers to ascertain the cause and fix the problem.
Clean up can begin as soon as the water has drained or been pumped away. The solid waste must be cleaned up, the area dried with circulating fans, and surfaces scrubbed and disinfected. You’ll likely have to throw out any carpets or rugs. Sewage cleanup can be a big and nasty job that you should leave to professionals. Trained crews like ours can get things cleaned up, deodorized, and check for any water damage to the surrounding walls and floor in case hidden damage calls for repairs.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage Restoration
Drywall water damage happens quickly, and when not promptly treated and dried, it begins deteriorating and needs immediate replacing. In addition to absorbing water and swelling up, a primary concern with drywall water damage is the growth of mildew and mold, both of which are associated with causing several health issues.
In addition to drywall water damage, which generally occurs in a structure’s walls or ceiling as a result of a leaking roof or pipe, carpet water damage can be extremely frustrating as well. Since many carpet manufacturers void any warranties when water damage is visible on the latex backing, professional steam cleaning and ozonation is almost always needed. A water damage hardwood floor will require professional restoration as well. The good news is, whether you have a water damaged ceiling or a water damage floor, a quality contractor will be able to restore or replace both and have your home looking like new.
