Water Restoration

Whether it’s a leaking pipe, a storm, an overloaded dishwasher, or a leaking roof, the moment your home and its contents become wet, it begins to deteriorate. As more time goes on, the water will continue to soak deeper into the walls and insulation, causing more damage, and making it harder to eventually dry out. At the same time mold and bacteria can quickly begin to grow.

Action is essential to prevent minor issues from escalating into significant, costly repairs. While we recognize the urgency and complexity of dealing with water damage in a home, may this guide educate you towards early intervention, a key to preventing escalation and preserving your property’s integrity.

Signs of Water Damage

Identifying water damage early can save you from extensive repairs:

  • Visual: Water stains on ceilings and walls, peeling paint or wallpaper, and swollen woodwork.
  • Odor: Musty smells are often indicative of hidden mold caused by moisture.
  • Physical Changes: Warping or buckling floors, rust on pipes, or dampness in typically dry areas.

Common Causes of Water Damage

Understanding the sources can help you stay prepared:

  • Internal: Burst pipes, leaky faucets, broken washing machine hoses.
  • External: Poor drainage, damaged roofing, or flooding due to heavy rainfall.

Our Process for Water Damage Restoration

  1. Assessment: A thorough evaluation of the extent and source of water damage is crucial. This helps in planning the appropriate response strategy.
  2. Water Removal: The immediate focus is on removing any standing water from the property. This step is vital to prevent further damage and mitigate the risks of mold and structural issues.
  3. Drying and Dehumidifying: After water removal, the affected areas should be dried and dehumidified, a process which involves the use of air movers and dehumidifiers to handle moisture that has penetrated walls, floors, and furniture.
  4. Cleaning: All affected surfaces are cleaned to prevent mold and mildew growth. This includes sanitizing and disinfecting to ensure the area is free from contaminants.

Preventing Water Damage

Preventative measures are crucial for minimizing the risk of water damage. Regular maintenance of plumbing and roofing, proper sealing of windows and doors, and ensuring good drainage around your home can significantly reduce the likelihood of water-related issues.
