Storm and Flood Restoration Service
Emergency flood restoration is an important service to essentially all property owners. Because water or flood damage can threaten the structural integrity of a dwelling and is hazardous to those who live within the home, it is never wise to procrastinate cleanup activities. Whether the damage was the result of defects in the dwelling, accidental negligence, or a fire or flood, the job of cleaning it up should be placed in the hands of a qualified professional. The latter are experienced in all kinds of water damage repair and have the knowledge and tools to work in a moisture-damaged environment.
There are many situations that can result in water damage to your home and each one requires a different approach when it is time to mitigate the situation. This is why it is never a good idea to do “guesswork” concerning cleanup after such an event.
Basements are a common area in which moisture is a problem, and water damage restoration is particularly important if your basement was finished and suffered carpet or insulation damage. Plumbing issues, such as burst or leaking pipes are common causes for basement flooding and new pipes must often be installed during water damage cleanup.
Leaky roofs are also a source of water damage, as insulation and shingles often fail over time. Unfortunately, you may not notice that such a leak is underway until you see discoloration on your walls and ceiling. If you notice such stains, it is safe to assume a roof leak is present and it is time to contact a professional.
Faulty plumbing, such as the failure of dishwashers, washing machines, toilets or ice makers can lead to water damage in your dwelling. Small leaks that are overlooked for a significant length of time can cause foundation erosion and other hazardous living conditions. When these issues occur, condensation builds up in your home, which can eventually lead to major problems that require the services of professional restoration companies.
Obviously, hurricanes, floods and other natural catastrophes can result in a water damaged home. Because not much can be done to prevent such events, you must focus on damage control when the incident is over. It is important to avoid delays, as moisture creates a perfect breeding ground for mold, which can be toxic at high levels. During floods, basements often sustain the worst damage, which can be so pervasive that new drywall, flooring and other structural renovations are required.
Complex Water Mitigation
Water mitigation may become a bit complicated if moisture finds its way to insulation panels, drywall or floorboards. All three can be destroyed if restoration services are not sought immediately and most homeowners are not qualified to make these costly renovations. In addition, the majority of consumers do not have the suitable tools and protective gear required to prevent illness or injury from contact with contaminated water. Floodwater removal and other water damage repair tasks should be completed by experts who have the equipment and skills to safely and efficiently do the job.
As soon as you notice that your property has sustained water damage, immediate action is necessary. Do not panic, rather call a professional water mitigation and restoration company to evaluate the situation. Keep the following in mind, as well:
• Turn off electricity to the problem areas prior to unplugging or removing any electrical devices.
• Place foil under furniture legs to prevent carpet stains or remove the furniture from the area completely, if possible. Curtains should be removed as well to prevent further staining.
• Plants, shoes, papers and other items that may stain the area should also be relocated.
• Never use a vacuum during cleanup, as it can lead to electric shock or may ruin the appliance entirely.
• Less foot traffic means less floor damage, so avoid problem areas as much as possible until an expert arrives.
• Never put newspaper over flooded areas, as the ink can permanently stain the wet floor or carpet.
