Four Reasons To Hire a Water Damage Professional

Encountering water and flood damage in your home or business can be a stressful situation. Accumulated water in an inside area can damage belongings, electrical systems and equipment. Without proper drainage outdoors, water can flow into low-lying areas of your home or business, including basements.

Professional Water Damage Restoration and Mitigation

Our company offers professional services for water damage restoration, water cleanup and mitigation and drying services. These types of situations are best handled by professionals instead of dealing with the problem yourself. What follows are three reasons to use a water damage and restoration company to help you remove water in home or water in business effectively.

Detail-Oriented

A professional water restoration and mitigation company will cover every square inch of your home that’s affected by flood damage. It requires multiple comprehensive steps to fix, and each step has to be completed correctly before moving onto the next one. These steps include:

Full visible water cleanup, including water extraction from the area
Repairing and cleaning sections of walls and floors
Inspect for signs of mold and mildew
Inspect electrical systems for any issues
Complete drying of the area using large fans to circulate air and dehumidifiers.

Professional Equipment

Professional flood damage restoration and mitigation companies like us have industrial-grade, professional equipment for addressing water in home or water in business. This equipment helps us complete proper water extraction, cleanup processes, mitigation and drying. These types of tools are not available to the average consumer and many of them require special training to operate correctly. Special tools and equipment also ensure we’ll complete the job thoroughly and as efficiently as possible, so you can proceed with normal operation of your business or normal day-to-day living at home.

Even Though It Looks Dry, It May Not Be

Even after visible water is removed, there are often areas underneath the floors or behind the walls that have soaked in lots of moisture, creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Our specialized fans and dehumidifiers help remove built up water to help with drying and removing moisture in areas that you can’t see until the water cleanup process is complete.

Training & Experience

Finally, the last reason to hire a professional for flood damage repair and water damage restoration is our team of professionals has the proper training and experience to handle these situations. We’ve performed these tasks on a routine basis for many years, and that experience helps us do a better job for our customers.

When we repair the area that’s been affected by water in home or water in business, we’ll make sure to apply preventative measures, such as installing flooring and wall materials with moisture barriers, to prevent the future growth of mold and mildew. We’ll also make recommendations for how to avoid flood damage in the future. If the water entered from the outside as a result of a powerful storm, for instance, it may require making changes to your home or business’s drainage system. If it occurred as the result of a malfunctioning appliance, like a washing machine or dishwasher, that appliance may need to be repaired, replaced, or have some of its essential parts replaced, such as the hoses if they ruptured.

As a professional water damage company, we’re required to wear special clothing and gear to safely address your home or business’s flood damage problem. The average consumer doesn’t have this type of protection, and can end up exposing themselves to harmful water or chemicals.
