How Water Damage Happens
Water damage can originate from various sources. The most common causes in the home are broken hoses and pipes. Overflowing or broken toilets and bathtubs can also cause water damage, especially if the situation goes unnoticed. While some causes of water damage are preventable, such as sewer backups, others are unavoidable. For example, flash flooding can cause extensive water damage in your home or business. Once a property has sustained water damage, it’s crucial to undergo cleanup as soon as possible to reduce the degree of water-logged furniture, carpets, and other items.
Water Damage Services
Once water damage has occurred, we work quickly to dry out your home or business and make any necessary repairs to your belongings. We first perform water extraction to remove the majority of water from your property. Depending on the severity of the damage, structural drying via dehumidifiers or blowers may be required. Once all water has been removed, the property must be completely sanitized and all odors removed. If documents in your home or business have suffered water damage, we can provide document drying and restoration services to restore them. We also offer floor, drywall, and furniture application, as well as mold and mildew remediation.
Water Damage Process
Before water damage restoration can be performed, we must perform a thorough inspection of the damage. During the inspection, we’ll determine the class and category of the water damage. Class 1 damage occurs when little moisture has been absorbed, resulting in minimal damage. Class 2 damage affects an entire room, with moisture being absorbed into walls and carpeting. Class 3 occurs when most of the area has been saturated. Class 4 damage requires special drying due to the absorption of water into materials such as stone, concrete, or hardwood.
