Water Damage Mitigation
The main risk of water damage is that the moisture can remain in spots you can’t see, such as within walls or floors. Water can weaken the structural integrity of wood-framed houses, destroy drywall, and lead to the growth of mold. While clothes and furniture may be saved with quick action and thorough drying, water damage cleanup is necessary for the home. Call us now at 1-888-443-3110.
It’s a good idea to take stock of your possessions for insurance reasons, but always use caution when returning to the home. Never enter a water-damaged home without ensuring that the power is turned off. Flooding may also release toxic chemicals, and after prolonged periods, the presence of algae and wildlife, including snakes. It’s always a good precaution to wear thick rubber boots, rubber gloves, goggles, and an air respirator if possible.
Water damage cleanup may involve removal of porous materials like wood, drywall, and carpets. The home will also have to be checked for mold and structural damage. Often the home will have to be dried with commercial drying fans and scrubbed with detergents before repairs can even begin.
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 can quickly spread throughout any home in as little as 48 hours whenever a water source, such as a plumbing or roof leak, is introduced. Mold is a serious issue and can damage your health. Unfortunately, microscopic mold spores are just about everywhere, making it next to impossible to remove every single spore from your home. However, when properly treated by a professional mold removal and remediation company, you can once again begin enjoying the air quality you deserve.
Mold remediation involves identifying and addressing mold problems in a home, business, or any other structure. Almost always performed by a professional mold restoration company like us, specializing in the potentially harmful job of mold cleanup and removal, mold remediation involves a number of essential steps.
A licensed contractor will first identify the source of the problem and all moldy areas. Then, a remediation plan will be developed, with containment of the infected area being a top priority. HEPA filters are used to remove harmful mold spores from the air and any porous materials like damaged sheetrock are removed. The rest of the area is thoroughly dried before the reconstruction process can begin. Exposure to mold can cause serious health issues. Whether you have mold in basement from a flood, mold in the attic from a leaky roof, or anywhere else in your home, protect your health and call a mold removal specialist today.
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.
Cleanup Sewage and Restoration
A sewer leak is an emergency that most people don’t want to encounter. A sewer leak causes devastating effects like bad odor and contamination. Like a water leakage, a sewer leak will spoil your wall, furniture, and your floor upholstery. It also places you at a high risk of contracting a disease and even coming into contact with corrosive chemicals.
Experts advise that you avoid any contact with the water and contact a professional like us to help you clear the mess. A sewage restoration service provider will formulate an appropriate action plan to remove the mess and prevent cross contamination. After the sewage cleanup, your service provider will determine if the spill area is safe to occupy, disinfect the affected area, and dry out the room.
Ceiling, Carpet and Drywall 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.
