Water can be the most invasive and destructive force that can be visited upon your home or business, even more so than fire. Those who have been unfortunate enough to have experienced both will testify that they would rather deal with damage by fire any day rather than have to go through the trouble associated with water damage ever again. The reason is simple enough; fire is easily extinguished and in many cases confines its damage to the area where the flames actually were. Water on the other hand, may start out as a small, unnoticed leak somewhere in the basement or attic which, by the time it is discovered, may have caused significant damage amounting to thousands of dollars.
In addition, water not only causes initial damage, but continues to cause problems for as long as it is allowed to remain standing. Water eats away at the foundational supports of a home, rotting the wood, rusting the metal, and wreaking havoc with electrical and HVAC systems. What’s even worse, after a couple of days, mold will begin to set it, which brings with it any and all manner of health related problems ranging from mild allergic reactions and skin irritation to major respiratory and neurological disorders.
The only way to properly treat water or flood damage is through the services of a certified restoration specialist such as the professionals at 24/7 Water Restoration. They are available 24/7 and offer same day emergency service in most cases. Through the use of state of the art tools and procedures, they can get the water out of your home, dry everything out, then repair and restore your home to its pre loss condition.
Water damage is bad enough, but sewage based water damage is a whole new level entirely. Sewage based flooding is always comprised of contaminated materials such as fungi, bacteria, viruses, and parasites, and anyone exposed to these elements may suffer from serious health problems. All surfaces and objects that have been touched by sewage should be considered to be contaminated, and as such can be thrown out and replace. While there are some items that may be cleaned and restored, replacement is almost always the less expensive and safer way to go. Sewage damage should be cleaned up as soon as possible following the initial spill. 24/7 Water Restoration is a full service water damage restoration company, available 24/7, and able to handle even the largest and most severe sewage and flooding leaks. Whether it is a malfunctioning toilet or a backed up sewer system, 24/7 Water Restoration has the experience and expertise necessary to clean up the mess and return your home and your life to normal.
The single most common byproduct of water damage is mold, which can appear in as little as 72 hours following a water damage or flooding event (sooner in cases of sewage based flooding), establish quickly, grow rapidly, and prove almost impossible to successfully remediate. Mold eats away at the surface on which it grows, and as a result can cause serious damage to a home or business if left untreated. Mold also brings with it health hazards ranging from the slight to the severe. Most molds are fairly harmless, in some cases causing allergic reactions, skin irritation, watery eyes, or sneezing, yet thre are some that are capable of causing serious problems such as respiratory and lung disease, neurological disorders, cancer, and in rare cases, even death.
Mold also responds to touch and mold spores may be released by simply coming into contact with mold. It is important to have mold removed, and done so in a manner that does not inadvertently spread the mold to other areas of the home. The mold removal professionals at 24/7 Water Restoration are able to remove the mold growth in your home, and then treat the area in order to prevent it from returning. This includes cleaning, disinfection, and improving ventilation and humidity levels to create an environment that is inhospitable to mold growth.
We mentioned fire, and that should not be ignored. Fire can cause a great deal of damage to any home, and a quick response is similarly needed to help minimize the loss to your home and your family. Fire scorches walls, guts entire rooms, and smoke damage may occur in other areas of the home, even those where the fire did not reach. In the aftermath of a fire, there may be toxic fumes present that can pose a threat to anyone who enters the property, and the structural integrity of the building may have been severely compromised, making it prone to collapse.
Fire damage and water damage are also often intertwined, since water and foam are commonly used to extinguish fires. The mixture of water, foam, and soot can be a messy one. The cleanup and restoration process is a dangerous one, and should only be left to those who are certified and experienced in such cases, the technicians at 24/7 Water Restoration. We provide professional fire cleaning and restoration services, designed to repair the damage and return your home to its original condition. Emergency 24/7 service is available, which means that the cleanup process gets started as soon as possible following any sort of fire damage.
