What is Water Damage Restoration?
Quite simply, it is the repair and restoration of a property or structure damaged by water or flooding with the goal of returning that property to its pre-loss condition. It consists of a number of steps that must be taken in a certain order to make sure that this goal is accomplished. Skipping any one of the steps, or performing one inadequately, may result in subpar results, not to mention additional damage to the property that can easily double repair bills.
Restoration begins with the water being removed, whether it is a small spill due to an overflowing sink or a large scale problem that is the result of major flooding. The excess water will have to be removed before any significant cleanup procedures can be engaged. Water may be removed through the use of mops, towels, cloths, shop vacs, or heavy duty pumps….the tool used depends on the situation, and the depth of the water involved.
Once excess water is out, air circulation devices will need to be brought to bear in order to remove the remaining moisture from surfaces and the surrounding air. Doors, drawers, and closets should be opened for maximum drying, and carpets may need to be taken up in order for the flooring beneath to be dried out.
The operative word in any water damage restoration project is “dry’. All surfaces must be completely dried out before the project can be deemed complete and successful. Failure to properly dry everything out sets the stage for additional long term problems such as mold, mildew, or other various toxins that can be the side effect of flooding.
Is water restoration a job for the property owner? In smaller cases, such as an overflowing sink, the answer might be yes. But in cases where there is a considerable amount of water involved, with one or more rooms being damaged in the process, it is advisable to call in professional restoration services. Your local, Clean Trust certified restoration company will have the training, experience, tools, and techniques necessary to handle even the largest water damage problems.
They will be available 24/7, and offer same day service in most cases, which allows them to have a technician onsite the same day, usually within the hour, to assess your problem and begin the restoration procedure.
Why the hurry? Because timing is everything. Water damage on its own causes a lot of problems, but what many fail to realize is that it will continue to cause problems for as long as it is allowed to stand. Water will ruin carpets, cause flooring to warp and crack, soak up through your drywall, and even damage electrical and HVAC systems, all of which add significantly to your repair bill. After 48 hours or so, a new problem will emerge…mold. Mold establishes itself wherever there is enough moisture to feed it, spreads quickly, and can prove problematic to get rid of. Worse, it brings with it a whole host of physical health threats ranging from mild allergic reactions to severe respiratory and neurological disorders.
Don’t trust your home to unqualified contractors or fly by night operators who sell you on low prices….your home needs top flight water damage restoration services, with all work guaranteed you will know you are getting a quality repair job done right the first time.
