You’ve had water damage in your house due to a burst pipe, a roof leak or a faulty washing machine. Except for outside flood water, you should know that most water damage is covered by your home owner’s insurance. Regardless of how water damage happened, it is important for you to take steps to remedy it quickly. Prompt drying minimizes damage, reduces repair costs, and prevents mold growth. Never ignore an obvious water problem in your home.
Preventing Further Water Damage
You should immediately attempt to find and stop leaks at their source. Once the leak is stopped, even if only temporarily, quickly assess the damage. Even if the water appears to only be on hard surfaces such as vinyl or tile, it may have gotten under trim and into wall cavities. If the water is in materials such as carpeting, wood floors, insulation, and under cabinets, you should call a professional. All South Restoration is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Dangers of Leaving Water Damage un-Restored
Many times, water damage is more extensive that it may appear to be. Our trained technicians with professional grade moisture detection equipment are best equipped to assess your damage. When water is trapped under flooring, inside walls, or behind cabinets, it must be removed by a professional. Left unaddressed, it will likely create more damage, and possibly become a dangerous mold problem.
Water Damage Drying & Restoring Process
Standing water must be extracted. Water damaged flooring, baseboards, drywall, and insulation often need to be removed to expose underlying subfloors and wall cavities. Powerful drying fans and industrial grade dehumidifiers will be needed to remove moisture from the surfaces and the air. Structural drying is a process, not a one-time service. With severe damage, drying times of 3 to 4 days are not uncommon. The professionals at All South Restoration will return regularly to monitor and document the drying progress, adjust equipment and ensure that your home is drying properly.
