When did the water damage occur in your building or home?
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you have experienced water damage cleanup needs in your home. When the water damage occurred can be a determining factor as to whether it is an emergency call or not to prevent further secondary damage or health concerns to your family. The most critical course of action in water damage cleanup and restoration is to respond quickly, but if the date of loss was two weeks ago many considerations must be addressed first.
If our crews can't gain access into your home until tomorrow for instance, due to many different variables, what will be damaged has already been damaged. At times though this is not true, as example
recently we cleaned up a flood in a basement that kept creating more damage as the problem source of water was not stopped. The flooding had began
in an upstairs bathroom on the first floor of a million dollar home. The home owner was out of town, so they did not know that their best investment was being slowly flooded. The water began to flood the bathroom and then find the pathway of least resistance, and in this case
it was trickling down the walls and stairwell and finally reaching the basement floor. The water had over a period of a month reached every part of the basement and then had begun to soak up the walls into the sheet rock. The damage had been extensive enough to find it's way down several walls from the upstairs bathroom or source of the problem. So by the time the home owner had identified the problem, their home had sever
secondary issues requiring immediate water damage cleanup.
Even after 48 hours
it can be unsafe to enter into
the home and if after 72 hours, mold growth can begin, so one must be careful not too
take such matters lightly. If anyone in the home shows signs of respiratory problems, mold remediation must take place, and any signs of mold growth must be found. In this case fortunately
the home owner was away for an extended period of time. So timing is critical in determining which category of loss water damage cleanup efforts will need. We inform the insurance company of all traces of damage and provide industry standard diagrams of the dimension of your home, delivering exact locations of all water damaged areas in your home.
