Top Water Damage related questions

Booking your service right away is ideal. Waiting for several days to several weeks for you to book your water damage repair service will only worsen the extent and effects of the clean water or flood. We recommend booking this service right away as water damage is an urgent issue.

Water damage restoration specialists help clean up dirt, debris, and sewage that may have accumulated from grey water or black water damage. They also help eliminate harmful pathogens and parasites that are bound to breed in standing water, and make sure that your home or workplace is safe and non-hazardous to your health. Water damage restoration specialists are also trained to handle high-strength bleach, ammonia, and other chemicals needed for flood restoration.

Porous materials like carpet, insulation, and fabric may have to be cut out or thrown away. Most fabrics and textiles will be permanently shrunk or warped by water damage. If drywall has swelled, then you and your water restoration specialists will have to measure and cut out the damaged portion and replace it entirely. For furniture pieces and appliances, check with the recommendation of your specialist.

Your water damage specialist will be equipped with addressing and eliminating mould. Remember that mould colonies can show up in as little as 24 hours after damage, and some species are especially toxic to humans. Most likely, your team of water restoration specialists will apply a high-strength amount of bleach to remove the mould. If mould continues to show up months after your restoration process is completed, then contact a mould removal expert.

If your home or establishment suffered a huge amount of damage, then the final step would be remodelling. Together with a team of builders, your water damage specialist will help reconstruct and remodel your home. Most likely, your home will be reoptimized and further protected so that it will appear and function better in the event of another crisis.

What do water damage repair services include?

After a major flood, water can ruin your home or establishment’s fixtures, encourage microbial and fungal growth, and permanently damage your gas and electrical supply, so you may need to hire a specialist right away. 

While the services covered may vary from Tasker to Tasker, you can rely on local water restoration specialists to advise and assist you with water damage repair while helping you take proper action. Here’s what you can expect from flood restoration and water damage repair services:

General assessment: Water damage

The first type of water damage is clean water damage. This includes damage inflicted by broken pipes or faulty fixtures in your bathroom, kitchen, or yard. This may have little to no side effects, so you can get water damage addressed by a plumber.

The second type is greywater damage, which is potentially more dangerous. Under this type are larger appliances like washing machines or toilets. Grey water may typically carry more toxins, chemicals, and pathogens, and this is when you may need to consult with a water damage specialist.

The most hazardous type is black water damage. If your home comes into contact with large quantities of sewage, floodwater, seawater, and groundwater, then your home will definitely need to be disinfected and restored by water restoration specialists.

Electrical system evaluation

Within 24 hours of the flood or time of damage, contact your insurance agent and team of water restoration specialists immediately. Be sure to take photos or videos of the damage. If you have flood insurance, file your claim right away. 

Your water restoration specialist may advise you to shut off all electric and gas services in your home or establishment, especially before entering the premises for the first time after the flood. It is highly likely that water may have entered wiring, pipes, and other devices and appliances. Ensure that your space is safe to enter and inspect before you begin your cleanup. 

Water removal and flood damage repair

Stagnant water is a breeding ground for harmful pathogens and parasites. For black water damage, expect your water restoration specialists to wear protective gear and shovel out mud, grime, as well as small items, furniture, and other appliances that have come into contact with water. You and your family or colleagues may be present to help and oversee the process.

Wall interior surfaces and flooring will be stripped and removed before the cleaning, disinfecting, and restoration process begins. It may be worth looking into waterproofing important structures in your home such as walls, bathroom tiling, and concrete pathways to lessen water damage in the future.
