What Does Water Damage & Flooding do to a Property?
With water damage, the longer you wait the more significant the problems (mold) and expensive the repair. Even a slow leaking pipe can lead to big problems. That’s why you want to trust your water damage repairs and flood damage restoration to a restoration company like Secure Restoration.
Water damage is much more insidious than the actual water that may enter your house. Water can soften wood, soak fabrics like carpet, corrode metals, cause mold growth, and affect the smell and sanitation of your home. Water damage can go unnoticed for a long period of time and slowly sneak into all areas of your home. Call a professional water removal company like Secure Restoration as soon as possible so home restoration can begin.
Flooding Restoration Services – The Process
When you use water & flood restoration services, they should be able to act quickly to provide immediate relief and to prevent further damage. They will accomplish this by carrying out a number of different jobs and by going through a number of different steps, both of which we will look at here.
The first contact that a flood restoration company will have with you is when you call them up to secure their services. This is something you should do as quickly as possible, as the longer, you leave your property damaged, the more serious the damage will ultimately be. After a flood, your home may be left with a serious leak or with inches of standing water which will result in the property getting damaged. The sooner you deal with this, the less expensive this subsequent damage and mess will be.
The best water & flood restoration companies will then be able to respond to your call quickly and come to your property. These companies offer 24/7 emergency services which ensures an expedient response when you need it most.
Upon arrival, flood restoration will normally begin with an assessment process to ascertain the full extent of the damage and to come up with a plan.
Normally, flood damage will result in multiple aspects of your home being affected. This makes a lot of work for flood & restoration companies and makes it necessary for them to carefully decide in what order to tackle the various issues. This essentially boils down to a form of ‘project management’ which can ultimately save time and money in the long run.
The assessment process is also necessary so that flood restoration companies can offer an estimated budget and time frame which will allow you to make plans regarding alternative accommodation if necessary etc.
Removal and Disposal
The sad fact of the matter is that in some cases, flood and water restoration won’t be able to save all your belongings. If you have a carpet or drywall that has been flooded, then it may be that those items need to be disposed of. Flood Restoration companies will then provide this service early on as that way they will gain more space to move around and carry out other jobs. At the same time, this can once again prevent your property from being damaged further – by contaminated water for instance.
As removing and disposing of furniture is a heavy job, many companies will also handle this step on your behalf.
Water Damage Restoration
Flood Restoration actually involves a number of different jobs and services all rolled into one to provide a complete solution. As mentioned, hurricanes can often result in water damage through flooding, through rain or through other means. Fortunately, restoration companies can provide water damage restoration which involves removing standing water (using large submersible pumps), cleaning and sanitizing the area and drying off your property.
When you get water damage restoration, the company will normally have to first assess the nature of the water that caused the damage. This means scoring it in terms of hygiene with category 1 (‘white’) water being the cleanest and category 3 (‘black’) water being the most unhygienic. Black water may potentially have come from the sewers or the toilet bowel and can carry disease, so it’s crucial that thorough cleaning is carried out for affected areas.
Water damage restoration then involves thorough drying which may also include the use of dehumidifiers to clean the air and remove moisture. In some cases, mold remediation may even be necessary in order to remove mold that may have grown as a result of the water damage. This is another reason why it’s so important to deal with water damage quickly – moist surfaces can otherwise begin growing mold in as little as 24 hours.
