Water damage can come from a variety of locations including sewer problems, pipes leaking, heavy rains, fire hoses or flooding. A water restoration service can offer household items clean-up and removal, as well as the actual structure itself.
A water restoration service can be sure to clean up any excess water in the process and dry out the affected areas completely, including the hard-to – reach areas such as the crawl space, basement and upper floor. Complete drying of an area is essential to prevent damage from spreading, and growing mold. However, once water affects an area it may be too late already.
To protect yourself and your property, it is essential that you act swiftly and call a water damage restore service as soon as possible. The removal of excess water is done first, then the drying and dehumidification process is complete. Mold can start growing within 24 hours of water damage, so be sure the drying process is thoroughly done.
To avoid further damage and speed up the drying process, remove all furniture and other household items from the area, even if they were not initially affected by water damage. Some items will be damaged beyond repair and restoration so let these items go. Through hanging onto a damaged item or piece of furniture you face the chances of increasing and spreading molds.
Make sure your water damage restore contractor is experienced in the area of restore home & property. Make sure they have the appropriate training and experience, as well as the licenses and insurance required, needed to do the job professionally and competently. Do not fear asking for references and checking with others who have used their service. If you file a claim with your homeowners insurance, you may be given a list of recommended contractors by the insurance firm. Remember you have the final say in who’s working to restore your home and belongings. Be prepared for a restore service so that you will not be able to fix everything and be upfront about the items they can and can not restore. If a water restore service claims to be able to save everything without proper drying, then you might need a second opinion.
