Getting Started Immediately
Going through a water damage experience in your home or business can be very stressful, but it is important that you act quickly. Delaying taking action to dry out your affected property can lead to rot and mold, and lead to health problems, additional costs, and the potential for your insurance claim to be denied.
We first test and make sure every item that we will be removing does not contain any asbestos or lead so that we don‘t risk contaminating your house. Then, we remove all damaged materials and apply an antimicrobial to prevent any mold growth. Over the course of the next week, we use equipment to dry out the affected area and monitor the moisture levels until the affected area is completely dry and ready for your construction team to return the area to its original state.
Common Causes of Water Damage
Roof leaks are common with roof failures due to wear over time. Sometimes it can happen during a heavy storm due to hail or a tree falling and penetrating the roof.
Supply Line Failure
Supply lines that connect to your dishwasher, sink, or washing machine can fail due to pressure issues or a tear in the line. This can cause major water damage if left untouched.
Heavy rains, natural disasters or an outdoor drain failure can cause your home to experience main floor and basement water damage.
Hot Water Tank Burst
Unfortunately, there are times when your hot water tank will fail due to old age or improper installation.
Sewer Line Failure
Sewage can build up in your crawl space and can cause damage to your home’s foundation, and can cause health issues in your family. Sewage cleanup requires special protective equipment and skilled handling and is often conducted in confined spaces.
Shower & Tub Overflow
Overflow in bathtubs and showers can be caused by negligence or a clog in the drain system. A shower faucet releases about 2.1 gallons per minute. A bathtub faucet releases 4 gallons per minute. These large amounts of water can cause major water damage to your home very quickly.
Leaking Shower & Tub
Failure to maintain shower tile grout and not replacing or repairing old caulking can lead to moisture build up in the walls or floor of a bathroom. Over time this will turn to mold or rot.
