Orlando Water Damage Restoration
Fast, efficient water damage restoration is critical following a flood or other water emergency. Water damage restoration professionals will assess the damage to your home or building and identify the source of the problem. The restoration team will probably also use infrared equipment to identify any hidden areas of water damage or in case the source of the damage is not immediately apparent. The time and cost of repairing water damage depends on the type of damage that has occurred. There are three categories of water damage. These categories are:
- Category 1 damage, which involves water that comes from a clean source such as broken supply pipes, faucets and clean water from toilets
- Category 2 damage, which involves unsanitary water that may cause illness, such as dirty water from dishwashers and washing machines, as well as water from toilets that contains urine
- Category 3 damage, which involves highly unsanitary water that may come from flooding, septic tank or other sewage problems or toilet water that contains feces
Water damage restoration professionals typically bring in fans and other heavy duty drying equipment designed to dry up any water in the building by reducing the humidity in the building. This equipment will ensure that your furniture and other materials are as dry as possible.
Causes of Water Damage
There are many ways that water can get into a home and cause serious damage.
- Environmental water damage from flooding, rain and snow can flood the home or damage pipes and roofs. Floods typically cause lower levels of homes to become saturated with standing water, while rain and snow often cause problems in the roof and ceiling. The cold temperatures associated with snow may cause pipes to burst and flood the home with water from water supply lines.
- Structural problems such as foundation cracks or leaking roofs allow water to get into the home through the basement or ceiling.
- Leaking or damaged pipes such as the pipes in dishwashers, washing machines, plumbing, water heaters and other water sources in the home can leak or flood.
Danger of Mold
Mold is an often invisible danger in homes. Molds that grow in HVAC systems, walls, ceiling and other areas of the home can produce toxic spores that cause a variety of health problems, including:
- Immune issues such as frequent, prolonged infectious illness
- Trouble breathing, wheezing, persistent cough and swelling or bleeding in the lungs
- Eye and skin infection or inflammation
- Headache and other aches and pains
Children and elderly people are especially susceptible to developing health problems from mold.
Orlando Fire Damage Restoration
Burned items in your home are not the only objects affected by fire. The smoke from a fire permeates into walls, carpets, fabrics and other surfaces in the building. The pervasive odor of smoke makes a home unpleasant or impossible to live in, especially if some family members are sensitive to smoke. Water damage from hoses is also common in homes recently affected by fire.
Managing fire damage typically involves:
- boarding up and stabilizing any structures affected by flames
- cleaning smoke and soot
- purifying the air and removing the odor of smoke
- water damage cleanup, including the use of mold and mildew inhibitors
- caring for damaged items
- rebuilding damaged structures
Orlando Flood Damage Restoration
Floods typically cause standing water to rapidly accumulate in homes, especially lower levels, basements and cellars. Water extraction is an important service for homes affected by flood, since the damage to the home's structures and the items inside becomes more severe as time passes. Contaminants in the water may cause a home to become uninhabitable if the water is not removed as soon as possible.
Flood damage restoration professionals can:
- remove all standing water from the home
- dry the home by using fans and dehumidifiers
- check for structural damage to the home
- clean and dry any surfaces and replace carpeting or vinyl flooring
Hiring a Water or Fire Damage Restoration Professional
Fire and water damage restoration professionals are often certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, a non-profit organization that sets standards for professional cleanup and restoration services and for care of homes and clients. Certified professionals are trained in cleaning up homes safely, efficiently and properly. Reputable professionals will be bonded and insured.
Although the expense of cleanup and restoration may cause some homeowners to think twice about hiring restoration services, it is unlikely that they will be able to safely and completely clean their homes on their own. Typical homeowners do not usually have the equipment necessary to find every affected area or source of water damage. Any efforts at repairing the damage yourself are likely to be incomplete. This will allow damage in hidden areas such as walls and flooring to worsen. Your home may also develop a serious mold or mildew problem.
