Water Damage Extraction

The process of removing excess water from a property after it has suffered from water damage is referred to as water damage extraction. It involves using specialized equipment to efficiently and continuously remove standing water and moisture from various surfaces, such as flooring, carpets, tile, and other affected areas. The goal of water damage extraction is to prevent further damage, such as mold growth and structural deterioration, by quickly removing standing water and excess moisture. It can help further damage from occurring by also limiting the spread.

A shop vac, while useful for general cleaning tasks, is not typically suitable for water damage extraction for several reasons. First, shop vacs are not designed to handle large volumes of water, especially in the case of significant water damage. They have limited capacity and can quickly become overwhelmed. Second, shop vacs may not have the necessary power or suction to remove water effectively from porous materials like carpets and upholstery, leaving behind moisture that can lead to further issues. Fourth, shop vacs do not have a pumping feature that allows the user to continuously pump the water – they will need to stop and empty the basin. Lastly, water damage extraction requires specialized equipment such as powerful industrial-grade water extractors and dehumidifiers that are designed to handle the specific demands of water restoration.

For thorough and proper water damage extraction, it is recommended to hire professionals with the right equipment and expertise to ensure that all excess water and moisture are effectively removed, reducing the risk of further damage and potential health hazards like mold growth.

Water Damage Mitigation

Water mitigation refers to the process of minimizing and preventing the extent of water damage that occurs in a property after a water-related incident, such as a flood, faulty supply line, burst pipe, or water leak. The primary goal of water mitigation is to prevent further damage, reduce restoration costs, and create a safe, dry, and habitable environment.

Water mitigation involves several key steps:

  1. Assessment: Professionals assess the extent of water damage and categorize it based on the level of contamination. This helps determine the appropriate mitigation strategies.

  2. Water Extraction: Excess water is removed from the property using specialized equipment such as pumps and industrial-grade water extractors.

  3. Drying: The affected areas are thoroughly dried using high-powered industrial fans, dehumidifiers, and other drying equipment to prevent mold growth and structural damage. A structural must reach industry standard levels of dryness to avoid mold growth and wood rot.

  4. Cleaning and Disinfection: Depending on the category of loss, surfaces are cleaned and disinfected to prevent the growth of mold, bacteria, and other pathogens.

  5. Content Restoration: Salvageable items within the property are cleaned, dried, and restored to their pre-damage condition. Our off-site facility allows us to perform professional content cleaning and storage while your property is restored.

  6. Structural Repairs: If necessary, repairs are made to restore the structural integrity of the property. Our reconstruction team works seamlessly with the mitigation team to get your property back together in no time.

Failing to execute water restoration properly can lead to a cascade of detrimental outcomes. Inadequate or incomplete restoration may result in lingering moisture, promoting mold growth and compromising structural integrity.

Trying to dry out your own property is often not done right and can lead to denial of coverage by your insurance carrier. To safeguard your property, health, and investment, it’s crucial to entrust water damage restoration to professionals who possess the expertise, tools, and techniques to ensure comprehensive and effective recovery.

Hiring a professional fire damage restoration company ensures that the restoration process is thorough, efficient, and carried out to industry standards. It’s important to choose a company that is experienced in fire damage restoration and has a track record of successful projects in this area.

In many cases, homeowner’s insurance policies may cover water damage caused by a flooded bathtub, but coverage can vary depending on the specific terms and conditions of your policy. Usually policies will cover sudden or accidental damages like burst pipes, broken sprinkler lines, exploding supply lines, and more. However, it’s important to review your insurance policy or contact your insurance provider to understand the extent of coverage for water damage incidents like a flooded bathtub. Keep in mind that factors such as the cause of the flooding, the extent of damage, and the type of coverage you have will influence whether your insurance will cover the costs associated with the damage and restoration.

While it’s not guaranteed that you will always get mold after water damage, the risk of mold growth significantly increases if water damage is not properly addressed and treated in a timely manner. Mold thrives in moist environments, and if excess moisture is left untreated, it can create the ideal conditions for mold to develop and spread. If you didn’t know about a wet area (hidden behind drywall), moisture prone environments can be difficult to spot until it becomes visible.

Since mold can start growing within 24-48 hours of water damage, and it can quickly become a serious issue if not addressed promptly. To minimize the risk of mold growth, it’s crucial to take immediate action to dry out and properly restore the affected area after water damage. Hiring a professional water damage restoration company with expertise in moisture control and mold prevention can help mitigate the risk of mold and ensure your property is thoroughly dried and restored.

Your safety is the top priority.  Different water categories may contain harmful contaminants, risking health issues if you contact or inhale. Water can also conduct electricity, posing a danger near electrical sources. Our team can expertly handle salvaging, cleaning, and storing belongings, while meticulously documenting the process for your peace of mind.

The short answer is that it depends. Small jobs could take 2 days, while large jobs could take months or even more than a year to fully wrap up the water mitigation and rebuild process. A lot of the variability relies in the insurance process requiring approvals and permissions. Another complication could be if there is a HOA or your project has multiple stakeholders that need to approve before specific work types can commence. Our experience can help expedite the process as much as possible.
