Addressing All Types of Home Water Damage Problems
Slow Plumbing Leaks
Leaks are one of the most common causes of water damage, and are often one of the worst. Often, the leak is in a pipe which is hidden inside a wall. The small leak can go unnoticed for weeks or even months. During this time, the inside of your walls – including support beams, drywall and insulation – are getting saturated. The moisture often causes mold to grow which results in a serious health risk. Over a long period of time, the moisture spreads to other areas. Materials may begin to deteriorate, which can become a physical risk, such as if a wall or floor collapses. Moisture from hidden leaks can also result in electrical and fire hazards. Depending on the extent of the leakage and how long it has been going on, this type of water damage can result in extensive damage and be costly to cleanup. It is usually covered by homeowners insurance.
Large Leaks and Burst Pipes
These plumbing problems cause a huge amount of water to get into your home in a very short amount of time. The good news is that the water damage is usually spotted quickly. If cleanup begins promptly, then damages can be kept to a minimum. The first thing to do in these cases is to stop the flow of water. Turn off your water main ASAP. Put buckets under the leaking area to catch water. It is generally not a good idea to start moving items out of the space, as this might track water all over your home. However, you can open windows to get air circulating. Put furniture up on blocks to prevent more water from absorbing into it, or put pieces of cardboard under furniture legs to prevent them from staining carpets.
Even though these situations generally don’t result in a lot of water on the floor, the water is tainted by sewage and only should be cleaned by professionals. Our teams use extraction machines to safely remove moisture and waste, and then we treat the area with sanitizers that kill bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and other pathogens which are in sewage.
Sewage backups occur when your sewer main becomes clogged or broken. The waste water from your home is unable to exit through the plumbing system and instead starts coming up through the pipes. The sewage will come back up from the lowest drain in your home, which usually means from your basement drain. The sewage backup can flood your home with unsanitary water. It is imperative that the cleanup process begins right away. With each minute that you wait, the water damage not only gets worse, but the bacteria and other pathogens can multiply. Mold growth also occurs very quickly, especially when the damage is in a basement. Our teams are IICRC certified and also certified by the Academy of Textiles and Flooring for Category 3 Black Water cleanup and restoration.
Fire Sprinkler Damage
Rarely do fire sprinklers discharge accidentally but, when they do, the damages can be huge. The reason that water damage from fire sprinklers is so devastating is because the water is sprayed on all surfaces, including flooring, walls, ceilings, and furniture. There is often a need to remove and discard of many materials which cannot be dried quickly, such as papers and drywall. However, it is also possible to save most of your property by using our advanced drying and dehumidification techniques.
At Rossmoor Restoration, we see a lot of cases of water damage from appliance mishaps, such as a washing machine or dishwasher which overflowed. Using our professional equipment, we are able to easily and quickly clean up these cases of water damage. However, we are often called in days or weeks after the fact. The mishap occurs, the homeowners try to clean up the water themselves, and they don’t realize that significant moisture was left in their floor. Over time, the trapped moisture causes mold to grow, linoleum to bubble, and hardwood floors to warp. This is why we always recommend professional water damage cleanup even for small cases.
Your insurance company considers “flooding” to be any type of water damage from external sources – such as a storm. However, most homeowners will use the term flood to describe situations where their home is under inches or even feet of water. In these cases, our first priority is to get out all of the standing water. This is quickly done with truck-mounted extraction machines. Our powerful machines make a big difference in getting the water out faster, which means less damage to your home and fewer costs for restoration.
