Water damage restoration in 300 words or less.
Water damage can happen so quickly, it’s hard to believe so much can happen in such a short time. Your furniture, belongings, walls and drywall, carpeting, flooring, and more can be destroyed or badly damaged in minutes. And the longer the water sits, the more damage that’s done. If you have water damage, here’s what you need to know about water damage restoration.
First of all, act quickly. As soon as you notice water damage, call a professional water damage restoration company to come to your location to evaluate the damage and begin the water extraction process. Most restoration companies have 24-hour emergency service available, so you can call any time, day or night.
Second, it’s important to understand the water damage restoration process so you know what you’re up against. When you have water from a leak or a flood it will move into areas you wouldn’t expect. It doesn’t just lay on the surface, it moves under baseboards, flooring, walls, appliances, and down to ceilings and areas below. Water moves downhill, after all.
Here’s what the professionals will do:
- Water extraction and drying of the structure and your personal property
- Dry the flooring and sub-floor
- Floor cleaning, including carpet
- Sewage cleanup, if necessary
- Antimicrobial treatment
- Structural repair and reconstruction
- Restoration of belongings
- Mold removal and treatment
