Water Damage Restoration FAQ's

What causes water damage?

Water damage causes are numerous, but can usually be placed in two categories: surface water or internal water. Surface water is caused by rain, flood, fire sprinkler discharge, etc. Internal water is generally leaking in roofs or plumbing that goes undetected for a period of time and then makes its presence known when it has soaked into the drywall.

What can water damage do to my belongings?

Water can cause a number of problems for your belongings. If the item is not dried/dehumidified in a timely manner, it can result in mold growth which can damage the items you love with spores that are known to cause allergic reactions and respiratory illness. Also, if allowed to run long enough, water can rust metal or warp wood.

What type of damage can water cause?

Water damage comes in two forms: surface and internal. Surface water is the easiest to deal with since it generally runs off of surfaces such as walls, floors, ceilings etc before it has time to seep into objects on its way down. Internal water is a much more difficult problem since it often seeps into cracks in objects over time making its presence known only when it has become a problem.

What steps should I take immediately after water damage?

After discovering water damage: Do not turn anything on; do not plug anything in; do not attempt to dry anything out. Those are the three golden rules of water damage recovery! If followed, your recovery will be much more successful.

After you have come back up to speed on what you can and cannot do, there are some simple steps that you should take: Carefully unplug everything from power outlets if possible (if not possible, turn off the power strip to which they are connected); Remove your computer from its location and place it in a dry area; Lay down some newspaper or paper towels on a flat surface and carefully lay your computer components down;

Once all of your components have been laid out, take inventory and write down their serial numbers (if you can’t find the serial numbers, please see our article on how to retrieve your data without them); Place all of your components in an airtight container (ziplock works well); Wrap each component so that it is fully sealed and take pictures of each one; You can also take pictures once they are all wrapped up.

What are some causes of water damage?

There are many causes of water damage, some are internal while others are external to your home or business. Some common causes of water damage are: Leaky roofs; Cesspool pumps that fail and cause sewage backflow; Flooding (locally or nationally); Broken fire sprinkler systems; Overflowing bathtubs, sinks, toilets etc.; Plumbing leaks behind walls / floors etc.

Is there anything I can do to prevent water damage?

Prevention is always better than cure. If you have a foundation leak it will keep coming, if you have a broken pipe in your wall you’ll likely need to replace the pipe before everything is fixed. Some common steps one might take to prevent water damage are: Have a qualified plumber come out and check for possible leaks in your pipes; Check the foundation of your home or business for cracks, leaks, etc.; Have a qualified plumber come out and check for possible cesspool pump failure; Install a backflow preventer on your sewer line if you have the possibility of sewage backup into your home.

How do I clean up water damage?

The absolute best thing to do is to hire a qualified water damage restoration company. It may seem like a hassle, but this is actually the fastest way to get your home back to normal. We recommend that you do not attempt to clean anything up yourself because you could cause additional damage or electrocute yourself with exposed wires.

What is my property at risk for after I have had water damage?

After you have had water damage the chance of mold developing in your home or business has increased drastically, and it can happen within 24-48 hours. Mold will form on any wet surface and it may also be hidden behind walls or under flooring. As a result, it is very important to get your property dried out as quickly as possible to prevent mold from developing.

How do water damage restoration companies restore my property after I have had water damage?

There are many different ways to remove moisture from your home or business, but its important to remember that not all methods work the same way nor produce the same results. Some of the most common ways that a water damage restoration company might restore your property after you have had water damage are Air Scrubbers; Dehumidifiers; Removing wet material (flooring, drywall, etc.); Extractors; Water extraction using a truck-mounted unit; Wood drying or wood replacement in crawlspaces and attics.

Do I need to use the same company that did the repairs that caused the damage?

Many people believe that they need to use the same company that did the repairs, but in most cases, this is not true. Most water damage companies have a lot of experience dealing with water and smoke-related problems and would be able to restore your property after you have had water damage (we do recommend using them to do the restoration of your property if you had internal water damage in your home or business).

What are some signs that I have a mold problem?

The most common sign that you have a mold infestation in your home is seeing black spots/marks on any surface in your home, but the best way to find out for sure if you have mold is to contact a qualified water damage restoration company. They will be able to test the material in your home or business for moisture levels and identify any potential mold that might be present.

Is it possible to get rid of mold myself?

It’s very difficult to remove mold yourself, if not impossible. The best thing that you can do is to contact a qualified water damage restoration company and have them remove the mold immediately.

What are some ways I can prevent mold?

The most common way is to clean up any visible moisture as quickly as possible, fix all leaks and fix/dry out wet materials such as carpeting, drywall, etc. If you replace any material ensure that it’s 100% dry before replacing it. Another way to prevent mold is by keeping the humidity levels in your home or business below 60%.

How do I know if a water damage restoration company is qualified?

The best thing you can do when hiring a water damage restoration company is to hire one with experience and a great reputation. We recommend checking with family, friends, peers, or even your neighbors to see if they have used a water damage restoration company in the past. You can also check online for reviews of various water damage companies.
