Frequently Asked Questions
About Water Damage & recovery
Water damage is most often caused by one of two reasons: a slow, continuous leak or a rapid, flooding inpour of water and other liquids. Most building materials are not made to become wet, especially for long periods of time. Your belongings, health, and financial well-being are all at risk when water damage becomes invasive or persistent.
You should call a local professional immediately to guide your home back to recovery.
Water damage often occurs as a result of a leaky roof, poor caulking around sinks, tubs, and toilets, overflow from unattended water spouts, cracked or poorly sealed pipes, plumbing lines, and joints, or, possibly worst of all, sewer line failures. No matter the reason, fixing your water damage issue as soon as possible will make sure there is no rot or mold damage (which in many cases is not covered by insurance). It’s best to address the issue as quickly as possible!
Water damaged areas will often have a distinct discoloration around the affected area. Water stains on the ceiling, long spikes that look like lines and triangles, and the invasive growth of fungus (mold) are all telltale signs that excess moisture has occurred. You can also detect leaks from the water bill – high or spiking water bills indicate that something somewhere is not right. Outside you can look for patches of vegetation that appear taller or more nourished than others. A dripping sound is also a clear clue that water is appearing when it isn’t supposed to – a musty smell develops over time along with grime, slime, and sludge like bacteria and plaque. The worst of all is likely adverse health symptoms, bowing wallboards, or weakened floors that someone could step right through!
We can test for leaks, fix them, and repair broken/damaged parts that water has destroyed or stained. The damage from leaks and seepage tends to gets worse the longer it goes untreated – treat it early and treat it right!
Untreated water damage can lead to hazards from the safety of the structural materials being compromised. It can create mold, slick surfaces, and even rot. It can bow boards and non-metal surfaces. It can seep into other places like your belongings, ruin your furniture, and even become stagnant (which is dangerous for small children and animals). You can only avoid fixing it for so long before facing major repair bills, increased liability costs from negligence clauses in homeowner insurance and people getting sick/injured, and even foundational problems that ruin your entire building or structure.
We get the water out using pumps and fans, clean up the affected area, remove debris and dangerous elements, restore your previous structure by replacing or rebuilding problem areas. We can also expand or modify these water damaged sections after a tear-out if the damage is so severe it requires removing a large section of the wall and other pieces to fully solve your water problems.
