Quick Action After Water Damage can Save you Thousands

Most people believe that when their home experiences water damage, simply paying their insurance deductible will get the ball rolling and the insurance provider will pay for the rest. What you may not know is that even insurance on a home’s contents won’t necessarily cover full replacement costs or provide you with brand new items.

Insurance companies will typically prorate the value of damaged possessions, furnishings and appliances, leaving you stuck with the remaining cost of replacing them. Swift action is required to minimize damage, prevent mold growth, and preserve salvageable items to save you thousands.

The fluidity of water means it can flow and spread far beyond its point of origin to affect walls, floors, ceilings and insulation. In addition to damage from the water, the resultant conditions provide an ideal environment for mold growth within 24 hours. If left unchecked, it severely compromises air quality in your home.

The solution is a restoration and recovery service. The professionals can salvage a great number of possessions ranging from drapes and furnishings to electronic devices. In the past, homeowners had little choice but to throw away any items that were water damaged.

Restoration companies have advanced technology and tools that can remove water, dry the premises, eliminate mold, neutralize odors, and return items to their pre-water damaged condition. Thermal infrared imaging is utilized to detect leaks with pinpoint accuracy when the damage is due to an in-house leak.

Samples will be taken of mold and analyzed to determine exactly what species of mold is present, enabling it to be treated accurately. All salvageable items will be inventoried, transported for treatment and stored until they can be returned to your home.

Depending on your insurance policy, you could find yourself receiving a fraction of the money needed to replace water-damaged items. A restoration company can save many of those possessions without the need to replace them, saving you thousands of dollars.

WATER DAMAGE REMOVAL BOCA RATON

Water Damage Restoration Step-by-Step

Water damage to homes and businesses occur from a variety of sources. It can be the result of hurricane flooding and storm surges, leaky or broken pipes, and fire prevention sprinkler systems. Damage can also occur due to water used to extinguish a home fire and appliance overflows. No matter what the cause, a water restoration company has solutions for every contingency.

When water damage occurs, it’s not just the liquid that must be extracted. Mold is also a problem. The fungi can begin multiplying in as little as 12 hours under the right conditions. Remediation is a multi-step process that should begin as quickly as possible.

Water damage restoration is a very exacting and detail-oriented process. The experts have a myriad of techniques and technology they can draw upon to achieve the best possible results. They work directly with insurance companies and provide an onsite insurance claim specialist. Services are available 24/7. The process begins by responding to water, flooding and sewage emergencies within 30 minutes.

When flooding or leaks occurs, but the exact location isn’t known, thermal infrared imaging is used to identify the source of moisture issues. It’s an indispensable tool that eliminates unnecessary damage from trial-and-error exploration of the past.

The restoration specialists have methods at their disposal to address multiple issues with furnishings and even expensive electronics. An inventory of items will be created and possessions that can be saved will be packed and transported for restoration. Moisture will be extracted, any mold growth will be eliminated, and possessions will be deodorized.

Water damage typically extends over a much larger area than individuals anticipate. In many instances, flooring, walls and other materials will need to be removed and replaced. A full-service restoration company will oversee the process and provide storage for items that have been salvaged and treated until they can be moved back into the home.

Don’t Delay Water Damage Removal

Water leaks aren’t always immediately visible or explosive events such as a burst pipe. They can begin as a small drip or leak that goes undetected for months before damage becomes obvious. Water damage can also be the result of storms, flooding, septic problems, or water from extinguishing a blaze. When water damage is present it’s vital that a professional restoration and recovery team be engaged immediately.

Leaks

When the problem is the result of a leak, by the time water damage becomes apparent it can already have spread within attics, behind walls and under floors. One small leak can result in thousands of dollars in damages that an insurance company may or may not cover, depending on the policy. No matter what the origin of water damage, addressing it should never be delayed.

Mold Growth

Water damage begins to occur immediately. Mold flourishes in the warm, moist conditions that are predominant in Florida, along with various types of bacteria. Within the first 24 hours, drywall begins to break down and colors in fabrics will start to bleed. Paper items will be destroyed and a musty odor will be apparent.

By the second day, wood will warp, wallpaper will peel, and the entire environment will become a biohazard due to mold and bacteria growth. Even if the origin of the problem has been repaired or otherwise eliminated, there’s going to be a significant amount of clean-up and restorative work to complete. A restoration and recovery company can handle all phases of the process.

Since restoration companies often work closely with insurance companies, they can also provide savings. An additional benefit is that when a restoration company is called quickly, they have the technology, techniques and experience to salvage items ranging from furnishings to electronics. Salvageable items will be cleaned, mold and bacteria eliminated, and odors neutralized. Never delay water damage removal. Doing so creates a biohazard for people, pets and structures.
