On average, water damage occurs once every fifty years for homeowners. If you’re facing a water loss, it’s likely this is your first time dealing with the issue. Luckily, Advanced Restoration is here to help! With one phone call, we can handle any water or flood damage event you’ve faced. We want to be a complete resource, meaning our goal is to handle the entire water damage restoration process from start to finish so that you can focus on other things.
After a fire, flood, or plumbing failure, fast action to dry out and restore water damaged areas can mean saving thousands of dollars in loss of structural components, electrical equipment, paper documents, and furnishings. Leaking water in your home can feel like an impossible problem to solve. You may also have to fix carpet water damage, home water damage, drywall water damage, and wet basements that can happen as a result of water damage.
An influx of water into your home or business can happen for any number of reasons: a burst pipe, a washing machine malfunction, or a toilet overflow. Regardless of the cause, excess water can have serious adverse effects and cause water damage very quickly. Water damage can cause wood floors to rot, destroy furniture and personal belongings, and even compromise the structural stability of a building. Left untreated, a water emergency can quickly create an environment for mold to grow and pose a serious health hazard to you and your family.
Timing is truly everything when it comes to minimizing water damage. Harmful mold, bacteria, and mildew can start to form a mere 12 hours after a water emergency. Within 48 hours, a serious mold problem can occur.
Personal property also has a higher likelihood of surviving a water emergency if tended to right away. When furniture and carpets are treated immediately, the more opportunity a water damage restoration company has to salvage it. The faster we can extract the water from your business or residence and move forward with the drying process, the less damage will likely accrue.
A water emergency is an urgent situation, and we understand that. That’s why Advanced Restoration is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We specialize in emergency water extraction and water damage restoration services. An Advanced Restoration representative will always answer your call.
While the water damage restoration process varies with each situation, there are a number of steps we usually take to restore the affected area to its previous condition. First, we do an initial inspection of the area and figure out the best course of action. We will prepare thorough documentation of the area for your insurance claim process and can assist you in filling out and submitting the necessary documents to your insurance company.
Next, we will immediately start to extract any standing water or sewage debris. We move wet furniture to a safe, dry area.
We use infrared moisture detection cameras and sophisticated testing equipment to determine the moisture level and check for mold or other microbial substances. Once we sanitize and disinfect the area and it is fully prepped, we then begin the drying process using state-of-the-art dehumidification and drying equipment.
