Water Damage Restoration Service by Emergency Water Cleanup

Neither is it something that should be dealt with carelessly.

Mold Infestation due to water damage
Mold is caused due to moisture. You might see molds growing around your property if you have left any kind of water damage unrepaired for a long period of time. When a lot of moisture accumulates in an area, a mold infestation can be expected. That’s why the only way to prevent mold from growing is to dry out the water-damaged areas quickly and professionally.
Mold infestation can be toxic to your health and damaging to your property resulting in very expensive repairs costing up to 5 times more than properly mitigating the water damage when first discovered. Our primary focus and goal is to professionally mitigate all areas of water damage regardless of how large or small immediately and thoroughly so that there is no danger or additional cost in dealing with mold damage.
Unfortunately, if you have a botched water damage restoration attempt that has left you frustrated and confused… It is important that you seek the help of experienced professionals for mold remediation companies to develop a restoration plan.

What causes water damage?
As mentioned earlier, water damage is quite a common occurrence in residential and commercial houses. Many property owners are unaware of the causes of water damage. That’s why they can’t detect it quickly before the damage gets too bad. So here are some of the common reasons why water damage may occur:
- Different types of plumbing leaks and appliance leaks
- Broken, non-functional, or leaking water heaters
- Acute rainfall or storm leading to flooding
- A leaking roof
- Pipes or hoses that are cracked burst or broken
- A clogged toilet
- Clogged and/or blocked drains in the bathroom or under the kitchen sink
- Clogged gutters around the property
- Leaking windows
- Moisture behind walls
- HVAC condensation
- Leak in the washing machine supply line
- Structural damage and foundation cracks
- Toilet leaks
- Air conditioning leaks or flood
- Flood waters
- Plumbing system failures (behind the walls)
These are the main causes of water damage. It is necessary to identify the cause first before looking for a solution. Emergency Water Cleanup gives priority to correctly identifying the cause first before proceeding with the restoration.
What are the effects of water damage?
You can wonder why water damage is an absolute dread for many property owners. You can also wonder why you should be in a hurry to get the water damage on your property restored. Well, let us answer that for you. If we are talking about the effects of water damage, the expanse of it is shockingly huge.
By now, you must have heard of the Surfside/Miami Beach building that collapsed. Do you know that experts are guessing that one of the reasons behind the collapse might have been persistent water leaks over the years? That’s right the 12-story Surfside/Miami Beach condo has been victim to water damage for prolonged periods. But that’s not all… There are many other kinds of impacts as well. These effects can include:
- Damage to belongings: You can’t imagine how severe the effect of too much water can be on your home’s belongings. Wooden furniture, upholstery, household appliances, electronics, plumbing equipment—all of it can be ruined. And this is no minor loss either. The loss can amount to even thousands of dollars, especially if the water damage has been left unmitigated.
- Mold growth: This is one of the most troublesome impacts of water damage. Water accumulated anywhere for long periods can give birth to mold. Mold is a type of fungus that grows in the form of multicellular filaments called hyphae. Under too much moisture and temperature, mold typically takes only 24 to 48 hours to grow. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), mold will grow as long as they have in the right condition.
Once mold grows, it spreads a bad odor and also looks bad. Moreover, long-term exposure to mold can cause throat irritation, nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, cough, wheezing, and skin irritation. So, you can tell how bad mold can be. The problem is that mold remediation and restoration are extremely expensive. So, leaving water damage unattained could be a huge loss for you.
- Decrease of your home value: This is ultimately the worst impact of water damage. If you’re planning to sell your home someday and you want to make a good profit out of it, you need to mitigate with the experts to get your property back to a pre-loss condition like it never happened. When it comes to the resale value of your home, nothing can destroy it more than unmitigated water damage.
In fact, what’s worse than neglect to water damage that could reduce the value of your home? Mold reduces it even more. If you neglected the water damage, then the mold it will leave behind will further reduce the value of your investment. Luckily, your water damage issues in your home could be brought back to pre-loss conditions at affordable prices…
It is clear by now that water damage is not an issue that should be taken lightly. It is a very serious problem and could have many harmful effects from all sides. For your water damage cleanup, you should only count on professionals. That’s why you shouldn’t delay. Call Emergency Water Cleanup to fix all your water damage issues in the best, fast, most efficient, and most reliable way.
What should you do if your house has water damage?
Water damage can cause a multitude of problems. It can damage the paint on your walls and affect the structural integrity of your home. Your ceilings, kitchen, walls, and basement might show the most damage. There can also be many hazards associated with it. So, it’s very important to take some measures to minimize the damage. These are:
- First of all, don’t panic! Give Emergency Water Cleanup a call immediately
- Find the source of the water leakage and turn it off (if possible). If the flood is happening because of appliances or pipes, shut down every water source within the house including the main water valve.
- Shut down the electric circuits in the damaged areas (it’s best to cut off the electricity of the whole house if needed). Electricity transmits through water, and it increases the risk of getting an electric shock. So, make sure that the power is off before you pull the plug from flooded areas.
- Remove important items that get soaked easily from the area to prevent further damage. This includes important files and documents, books, fabrics, potted plants, electronic devices, and other porous materials.
- Start using a mop and remove as much water as you can before the professionals arrive.
- The flooded area might have curtains nearby. Lift those curtains up from the floor and loop them through a coat hanger. You can also tie them around the drapery rod.
- In case of furniture is affected, take a dry cloth and wipe them. If the cushions and covers are wet, leave them in the sunlight or a dry place to dry off.
- If there are paintings or framed photos on the walls, move them to a dry location.
- In case there is a bookshelf in the area, some books might’ve gotten wet. Leave them on the shelf and pack them tightly together. Our experts will deal with the drying.
What shouldn’t you do if your house has water damage?
Sudden water damage can take someone by surprise. Some property owners often end up making things worse instead of better. This happens due to a lack of knowledge as well as carelessness. So, until the professionals arrive, here are the things you should avoid doing:
- Do not use a home vacuum. There is not only a risk of getting electrocuted but also damaging the equipment.
- Do not walk on the carpet unless absolutely necessary. Moreover, do not place a newspaper over the carpet either. The ink from the papers could leak to the carpet and cause permanent staining.
- Some rooms might have standing water, and it’s not safe to go in there. So, don’t enter that room unless absolutely necessary. If you must, then don’t forget to turn off the electricity line first.
- Never use an electrical appliance when you have wet floors. These appliances usually have wires that lie on the floor. This increases the risk of electrocution and appliance damage.
- On seeing any visible mold growing somewhere, do not disturb it. Let the professionals handle it.
