WAVE GOODBYE TO WATER DAMAGE

WAVE GOODBYE TO WATER DAMAGE

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the last couple of years (in which case you wouldn’t have to worry), you’ve seen first hand on the national news how water damage can ravage your home or office. Businesses, offices and homes are still recovering from the aftereffects of Superstorm Sandy. But don’t think because you’ve escaped a major storm or hurricane that you can start singing “How dry I am!”

I have water damage in my home in Queens, Who do i call!

Water Damage in Home In Queens

Water or moisture damage on a smaller scale can still be devastating. Have you had a recent minor flood or a frozen pipe burst from this brutally cold winter? Some damage may not be as readily visible to the naked eye. A silent killer could be lurking behind your wall, under the carpet or in your ceiling. Floor boards and furniture are also trouble spots if they’ve suffered even slight damage. The longer you wait, the more unhealthy the situation can become.

Water damage can result in mold and mildew forming in the affected areas. Not only will it cause an odor in your home, but health professionals say it can be a potential danger for children, pets and the elderly, and result in respiratory issues.

The best course of action is to call in a Water Damage Restoration professional to assess the damage and give you an estimate on restoration. Many professionals will even give you that estimate free of charge.

Timing is everything

Just like the popular TV show “24,” the clock is ticking on a home that has suffered water damage. The longer you wait to call, the more danger your property might incur. It may be an unknown leak, faulty plumbing or plain flood damage, but the water buildup must be addressed as soon as possible. If you wait too late, neither a water restoration expert nor Jack Bauer can save you.

Restoration companies offer 24 hour emergency response because¬† flood experts contend water damage is most dangerous after it’s been standing for 48 hours or more. Water restoration businesses understand this and are usually available 24/7, ready to immediately deploy a certified technician to initiate clean up and sanitation procedures.

Water Extraction

The water extraction process usually begins ASAP with state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. Your water restoration professional will ensure that all water is extracted and all areas are fully dried and treated to avert permanent damage.

Attacking the extraction of water damaged materials in a timely fashion also helps limit the cost of restoration. Electrical wiring needs to be protected to prevent potentially hazardous short circuiting. Immediate extraction also greatly reduces the chances of developing a mold problem. Furniture and carpeting must be treated right away to inhibit microbial growth. There is also a better chance your personal property can be saved if experts are able to service your home immediately.
