Water Damage FAQs
How does the water damage restoration process work?
First, we clean up all water on the premises. Next, we examine the property in order to see what needs to be replaced, what can be salvaged, and what further processes are required. The next step is drying and dehumidifying the damaged areas. This prevents the growth of mold. Finally, we replace and restore any damages to the property—floors, flooring, baseboards, walls, etc. so that your property looks as good as new.
What is the goal of water damage restoration?
Our goal is to clean up and remove all water from the property, prevent the growth of mold, and restore the damaged areas. The longer water sits, the more damage it can cause. We aim to act fast to stop the threat before further damages are presented.
How much does the service cost?
The cost depends on numerous factors, making it difficult to estimate without seeing the damage first hand. If you have a problem, give us a call. We will be happy to access the damage and provide a free estimate.
What causes water damage?
Common causes of water damage include appliance leaks, plumbing problems, pipe bursts, and flooding.
I’ve heard that water damage can be invisible and present even after self-cleanup. Is this true?
Absolutely! Even if you clean up the water yourself and believe it is all gone, unseen water can seep into floors, travel under walls, and collect in places you can’t always see. This can end up damaging your home, as well as causing mold. This is why it is best to have a professional evaluate the damages.
