Damage caused by floodwaters, busted water pipes, and fires leave a devastating mess. At first glance, the damage is cosmetic but looking deeper, it is far worse. Water damage is not always cosmetic. It can also involve structure damage, involving the foundation, footing drain tile, studs, floor joists, rim joints, vapor barrier, and more.
It is crucial to work at a fast pace, removing all water-logged materials from the impacted house. Working quickly can help minimize the risk of mold and mildew growth. Water damage restoration is never as easy as ventilating the impacted rooms for a few days. In fact, some building materials are rarely salvageable after a flood. Drywall, ceiling tiles, and carpet are just a few examples. All non-salvageable building materials must be disposed of and replaced to restore the home to its natural state.
Impacted homeowners also need to be aware of contaminants in floodwater. Research reveals floodwater can contain various types of bacteria, including E. coli, Shigella flexneri, staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus pyogenes, leptospirosis, Burkholderia pseudomallei, clostridium tetani, vibrio vulnificus. Inexperienced people should consider hiring a professional water damage restoration contractor.
Total Home Restoration After A Flood
The impact of flooding varies by location. For example, homes in flood zones are expected to sustain severe water damage while buildings out of flood zones sustain moderate to minor water damage. Keeping this in mind, it is sometimes necessary to restore an entire home located in flood zones.
A complete home restoration begins with a thorough inspection of the impacted home. A water restoration expert can perform the inspection to determine the severity of the damage. Most flood victims tend to wait for a field insurance adjuster to evaluate the damage. The insurance company will not approve a loss claim until the adjuster assesses the impacted home.
We are a fully insured and bonded water damage restoration company. Our restoration team has decades of experience in the industry. We work with other contractors to restore water-damaged homes to their original state.
Damage Related To Water Leaks, Floods, & Busted Sewage Pipes
People invest endless resources into keeping their homes in good condition. It is unfortunate but many overlook the sewage and water pipes running underneath their homes. Depending on the home design, plumbing pipes run along the ceiling of a basement or crawlspace. From here, they run underneath the ground to the municipal main connection. Water pipes are buried up to 100 inches in some states, making a visual inspection impossible.
A water break or leak can occur without a moment’s notice. Small leaks go unnoticed for weeks or months until the damage is detectable.
Home Firewater Damage Restoration
Fighting a home fire requires a significant amount of water. Firefighters utilize water stored in a large tanker to put out a house fire. Depending on the severity and location, only minimal water is needed to put out the fire. The impacted victims are left to deal with both fire and water damage.
Pristine Water Damage Restoration is locally owned and operated. We work in cities and counties throughout the State of Florida. Our home firewater damage restoration is customizable to ensure fair pricing and the best results.
Preventing Mold Water Damage
As mentioned above, mold arises from water leaks, floods, and other catastrophes. Mold is a type of fungi that poses health threats like asthma, lung disease, and allergic reactions.
Mold can start growing within 24 hours following a water leak. Eliminating the source of the problem and water-logged materials will stop mold from growing in impacted homes.
Pristine Water Damage Restoration can have a team on standby until the insurer and homeowner agree on a loss settlement.
