Water Removal & Water Remediation
If you encounter water damage, immediate action is crucial! Excess water in your home can cause an electrical shock hazard, leading to costly damage to your home’s structure and furnishings, and can even lead to dangerous mold growth. Our water remediation team responds quickly by offering advanced equipment to remove water quickly and safely. We get rid of water damage and prevent any potential structural damage and mold growth.
The importance of emergency water damage remediation
For most homeowners, plumbing leaks, flooding, water stains on walls, and water stains on wood floors are among one of the most devastating problems to deal with.
However, timing and effective solutions are crucial when dealing with standing water that is starting to seep deep into the ground of a home or building. Water seeping through the ground will not only damage the foundation of your home, but it will also put you and your family at risk for health problems. Mold will begin to grow and turn into damp patches, which will negatively affect your health. Mold is a common cause of asthma attacks and allergic reactions, as well as infections caused by bacteria.
The most common causes of flooding at home:
- Violations of the integrity of the roof or exterior walls of the house.
- Damage to window blocks, balconies or loggias;
- Faults in engineering systems
- Broken pipes
- Clogged gutters
- Poor drainage
- Defective washing machine hose
- Natural disasters
Water Damage Assessment
First, our water remediation experts will conduct a thorough assessment, performing daily inspections and monitoring to develop drying strategies and answer: what’s wet, how wet it is, whether it dries and whether it has reached its standard of dryness.
The assessment helps determine what damaged material may need to be removed due to structural integrity issues, unrecoverable damage or contamination. Our goal is to dry all materials such as drywall, wood, carpet and padding, baseboards, furniture, insulation, furniture, upholstery and more, as long as they are not contaminated or structurally damaged according to industry standards.
In the event of a flood or other major disaster caused by a leak, you need to know that you are insured. Our water damage remediation specialists will arrive equipped with industry-leading drying equipment to remove all water from your home, and get your property back in order. Not only do we get rid of excess water, but we can also take care of the debris left on your property as a result of flooding. Depending on the extent of the damage, we can even do a more thorough cleanup so that you don’t have to face any surprises in the future.
After removing most of the water, our experts use industry-leading drying equipment to remove invisible water. This will direct the water in the materials to return those materials to their normal moisture levels. This equipment is usually placed during the first visit to your property. The type and amount of equipment depends on your specific situation and industry standards.
When Should I Seek Water Removal Services?
Unfortunately, even small water incidents can lead to mold, warped wood and water stains on walls if not addressed quickly. You need professional water damage restoration after any water event that:
- Touches drywall
- Soaks carpeting or upholstered furniture
- Behind a wall or in a basement
- Creates a pool of water (on anything other than waterproof tile or concrete flooring)
The good news is that many water related events are covered by homeowners insurance policy. Be sure to contact your insurance company as soon as possible if you are going to file a claim.
