Water Damage Restoration for your Home

 


Fast response time is key to successful water damage restoration

If your home requires water damage restoration due to a wet basement or flood, damaged plumbing or appliances, or excess water as a result of fire suppression, quick response time is the key to successful water damage restoration.

The effects of basement flood damage or other water damage can go quickly from bad to irreparable if not addressed immediately. Water damage and excess water in your home can cause electrical hazards, expensive damage to your home’s structure and furnishings, and lead to the growth of hazardous bacteria and mold.

Beginning water mitigation and removal procedures as soon as possible prevents water damage from spreading, lowers costs and means less stress for you. Waiting to begin water and flood restoration services can cause secondary damage to:

  • Carpets and other furnishings
  • The structure of your home
  • Drywall and wood, as a result of the spread of mold
  • Hardwood floors—requiring costly replacement

Water Damage in your home

WHAT TO DO IF YOU EXPERIENCE WATER DAMAGE IN YOUR HOME FROM A BASEMENT FLOOD OR OTHER SOURCE.

  • Call for professional help. Structural damage from water and bacteria growth can begin within hours.
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Remove wet area rugs or other floor coverings not permanently attached. Do not attempt to start removing your wall-to-wall carpet. This should only be done by professional water and flood restoration specialists.

WATER DAMAGE PREVENTION TIPS

  • Regularly check the following to ensure they are secure, in good condition and leak free: hot water tanks, washing machine hoses, dishwashers, refrigerators and ice makers.
  • Clean your gutters every autumn to prevent backup and leaks.
  • Prevent frozen pipes and potential flooding by keeping your home heated while you’re away for an extended period of time.
  • Close interior valves for exterior faucets during the winter months.
  • Leave cabinet doors open during extremely cold weather to allow warm air in to help prevent pipes from freezing.
