The Dangers of Ignoring Water Damage
Excess moisture can weaken the integrity of floors, walls, and the foundation of your home. Prolonged exposure to water causes wood and drywall to rot, warp, and develop mold. This damage often requires extensive repairs to remedy and can compromise the structural stability of the building. Calling professionals to extract standing water and dry the area immediately helps avoid structural damage and health hazards.
Moist, warm environments are breeding grounds for mold, mildew, bacteria, and other microbes that can cause respiratory issues and other health problems. The musty smell associated with water damage is caused by mold and mildew spores in the air, which can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks. Extracting excess water and properly drying and ventilating the area helps create an uninhabitable environment for these contaminants.
The longer water damage goes unaddressed, the more severe and expensive the repairs become. What starts as a minor leak can turn into a major reconstruction project if left unattended. Water infiltration ruins flooring, drywall, woodwork, and electrical systems over time. Professional restoration services can help salvage as much of the original materials and structure as possible, keeping costs under control.
Restoring Your Kensington Park Home After a Flood
Assess the Damage
A licensed and certified restoration contractor will first conduct a thorough inspection of your home to determine the extent of damage. They will check for structural damage, mold growth, and contaminants. Moisture meters and infrared cameras are used to locate wet areas behind walls and under floors. This assessment is essential to developing an effective restoration plan.
Remove Standing Water
Standing water is removed using industrial pumps and vacuums. All surfaces are then dried to prevent further water damage and promote healthy indoor air quality. Dehumidifiers and air movers are employed to circulate air and aid evaporation.
Restore Walls and Floors
Any drywall, insulation, flooring, subflooring, and trim damaged beyond repair is removed. Materials are treated or replaced to restore structural integrity and prevent future water damage. Proper drying and moisture control procedures are followed before new drywall and flooring are installed.
Prevent Mold Growth
High humidity and excess moisture promote mold growth, which can have serious health consequences. Restoration experts use tools like hygrometers to monitor humidity levels and ensure your home reaches a safe, stable state before the restoration process is complete. They may also apply an anti-microbial agent as an added preventative measure.
A professional restoration contractor has the proper training, equipment, and experience to salvage as many of your belongings as possible. However, some items, especially those porous or with sentimental value, may still be unsalvageable. The contractor can pack out and professionally clean salvageable items before returning them to your home.
