Water Damage and Flood Restoration Services
Home flooding & water damage can be devastating
Besides fire, water is the most destructive thing that can get inside your home. Flooding and excess moisture levels can literally cause your house to fall apart. The key to combating the damage water can cause is to respond quickly. A + Service Pro Restoration responds quickly to any site where water damage is occurring and remedies the problem. Our years of experience have taught us that time is of the essence when dealing with water. If steps to address flooding and water damage are taken within 36 hours of the onset of the flooding, the effects of the water damage are greatly reduced. Here’s what we’ll do to help you after water and flooding damage.
Inspection and Assessment of Damage
First thing we have to do is inspect the extent of the damage and make an assessment of all of the damages. A full and accurate assessment of all the damages is crucial if you want to get your insurance to cover the full amount of the costs. Too many people call their insurance agents first. These people aren’t water damage experts, and they have a financial incentive to keep their assessments low. On the other hand, A + Service Pro Restoration doesn’t charge you anything up front. We charge the insurance companies. It is smarter to get us to come out and fully document all of the damages and costs instead of your insurance agent. We will deal with the insurance companies and make sure they pay for the full extent of the damages. Water damage in homes mostly occurs in these places:
- Partition walls
- Sound boarding
- Internal walls
- Suspended ceilings
Once all of the damages have been extensively documented, the water has to come out of your house quickly before it can cause even more damage. Submersible pumps and industrial strength wet/dry vacs are used to remove the water from your home. The sooner we can remove the water from your home the less time you need to dry out furniture etc, the more able we are to prevent secondary water damage, and the less likely it is for mold to form. Obviously, the longer water is allowed to sit in your home, the more damage it will do. Once the water is removed from your home, our team will thoroughly inspect any carpeting to make sure it doesn’t need to be removed to protect the sub flooring.
Drying and Dehumidifying
The drying stage of water damage recovery is essential in preventing more long term water damage. Even though your floors and walls may look dry after we pump the water out of your house, they are not. Drywall and wood are porous materials. This means that even though there is no longer water on their surface, they still retain water. Retained water inside the floors and walls causes the most damage by warping, swelling, breaking down, or even growing mold. Our professional service team uses industrial air movers and dehumidifiers to manipulate the temperature and humidity inside your home in order to remove the retained water in your drywall and wood. The progress of this step will be closely monitored to ensure that all building materials and hard to reach areas of your home dry properly.
Cleaning and Sanitation
Even after all of the water and retained moisture from flood damage is removed from your home there is still a lot of cleaning to do. All of the areas of your home, the furniture, walls, floors, all of your belongings, and other surfaces will need to be treated with professional cleaning products. One of the biggest facets of water and flood damage is a lingering odor that will need to be treated with a deodorizer. Basic deodorizers won’t be able to combat the lingering odor that will persist after flood damage which is why professional cleaning services are required to make your home livable again.
After all of the water and flood damage has been safely mitigated the restoration process begins. We have years of experience at A + Service Pro Restoration in helping homeowners make the tough choices between replacement and restoration. We understand that many of your items have a sentimental value that can’t be valued monetarily. Our team helps you find the right solution to each area damaged by flood waters.
