How water damage restoration works
The water can be extracted with minimal intrusiveness, in most cases without removing the carpet from the tack strips. Proper equipment will then be set up to begin dehumidification.
The carpet pad will need to be discarded. In most cases the carpet is salvageable. When all areas are extracted and the padding has been removed a disinfectant spray will be treated over all the contaminated areas. Then proper drying equipment is set up.
All contaminated areas including carpet, padding, drywall and trim must be discarded.
Once you discover a water problem it's important to take immediate action. Some homeowner insurance policies
"You do not need to wait to hire a water damage restoration company before talking to your adjuster."
do not cover damages. We recommend adding any additional coverage that your carrier offers that is water/flood related. In most cases, a sudden accident is covered under your policy, but a hidden pipe that was slowly leaking over an extended period of time and caused damage is typically not covered.
It's also important to know that not taking immediate action may cause you to be at fault for secondary damages. The most important thing is to get the damaged areas dry as soon as possible. If mold begins to grow or areas become damaged that otherwise would have been fine become damaged you will be responsible for the costs to repair those areas.
Water damage is typically classified into one of the three listed categories.
Poses no immediate health risk to humans. This type of damage is classified as fresh or "clean" water, typically from a broken water line from a bath tub, sink or appliance. If this problem is not fixed the damage can result in a category 2 water damage
Water that contains chemicals, biological's or physical contaminants. Poses health risks when exposed to humans. Referred to as "grey water" by professionals. Typically from from toilet overflow with urine (no feces), rain water,
"There is a common misconception that whenever your hardwood floors get wet it just needs to be replaced, but this is not always the case..."
The most harmful type of damage. Called "black water" by professionals. Poses and immediate risk when inhaled and exposed to. Contains bacteria, germs, fungi and other harmful contaminants. Typically from sewage, toilet overflow with feces, river and stream water. Category 3 water damage can result from not fixing damages from a category 2 water damage
Drying walls and sub flooring is important in multi-level water damage situations. The most important thing is to get airflow to those areas, even in between walls. With the advancements in drying equipment water restoration experts can normally dry out drywall and trim without disposing of it, which reduces your costs.
If you take immediate action and call The Water Damage Pros we will likely be able to save your hardwood floors. We employ the most advanced restoration equipment available. Our methods will dry your hardwood fast and efficiently saving your floor and significantly reducing your costs of replacing.
The absolute most important step you can take
is to call us immediately. No shop vac, vacuum or any other consumer extraction tool has the power to remove the hundreds of gallons that typically make up a water damage. The longer you wait could potentially cost you more money and a bigger headache later. The water will spread, more of your content will be damaged, mold spores will begin growing and as each of these secondary damages begin the costs to restore increase. It's common for people to think that the problem will go away, but waiting will just make it worse.
