Common Causes Of Water Damage
Water damage can occur for a wide range of reasons. Some of the most common causes include plumbing leaks, toilet overflow, broken or burst pipes, leaking roofs, moisture behind walls, and foundation cracks that allow water to seep through. Heavy rains and storms are also common culprits, as well as appliances like washing machines and dishwashers. No matter the cause of the water damage it is important to act quickly to minimize the damage. Our water damage restoration specialists will respond promptly to your call and will work diligently to restore your home back to its original condition.
Inspections & Estimates
There’s no inspection or estimate fee when emergency services are performed and the homeowner isn’t requiring an estimate upfront. It’s uncommon for an insurance company to ask for one in an emergency situation. When an estimate is requested before services are rendered there’s a $130 fee, this fee will be refunded if we’re hired for restoration services.
Cost and Billing
The truth is every job is different, no two water damages are the same. Some homes or businesses will dry in three days and some will take over five. For this reason it’s nearly impossible to give an estimate upfront. It’s common practice and accepted in our industry to perform emergency water damage mitigation services and produce an invoice afterwards. We use the same restoration estimating software as most insurance companies so price per SF is determined in the program. This helps reduce the back and forth with the insurance provider. All insurance projects are broken down by line items per room, this is how they like it. Most of the time with your permission your insurance company will pay us directly. For projects not covered by insurance we collect 50% on the first day and the remainder upon completion.
Water Damage Restoration Process
If water damage is not quickly remedied wood rot, mold growth, and similar problems can develop. In fact, mold can start to grow in your home in as little as 24 hours. To help prevent further damage to your property our team of water damage specialists will quickly arrive to your home equipped with state-of-the-art tools, equipment, and cleaning supplies. To begin the water damage restoration process, we will extract any excess water and moisture that may still be in your home following the incident. We will then dry and dehumidify the space using our advanced equipment.
Next, we will take the proper measures to clean and identify materials that will need to be discarded. Disinfection and deodorization of the affected areas is the next step, followed by mold remediation if necessary. If a sewer backup has occurred more extensive cleaning and disinfection may be needed to ensure that the space returns to a sanitary condition. We will also recommend that you make the necessary repairs to prevent water from entering your home again. We understand that dealing with water damage in your home can be a stressful situation and we aim to make the process as smooth and easy as possible.
