How Water Damage Restoration Works

Water damage can occur from flooding, excess moisture, or humidity. The damage can spread, and cause further damage or problems like mold and mildew. Residents in North Charleston, South Carolina can be victim to rain storms and water emergencies, being close to the ocean. Whether your water emergency comes from inside or outside your home, professionals are on every hour of the day. Clean Masters serve the North Charleston area, and will be quick to respond to your water emergency. As trained and certified professionals, they will be able to work as a team of technicians to assess and target water damage. They can create a plan for your situation, find hard-to-detect water damage, extract water, dry contents and structures, and restore your home or other property to pre-loss condition.

Damaged parts of your home will experience warping, cracking, swelling, and integrity damage. It is important to restore the structure of your home because the structure serves as the backbone, holding your home steady, like the foundation. Homes with water-damaged structures are more susceptible to collapsing, which is why it is important to call in professional help as soon as you notice any signs of water damage. Pay attention to any changes in your walls and ceilings like discoloration, peeling, cracking, warping, or swelling. These could be happening in hidden places like floorboards, which is harder to catch. When professionals come in, they will be able to detect and target these tricky areas. These professionals offer services including water source detection, water extraction, dehumidification, odor elimination, content and structural drying, mildew detection, and mildew removal.

The Process

Water damage removal takes precision, proper equipment, and skills that professional technicians offer. When a professional company comes in to restore your home, they will go over a contract with you and figure out how to work with insurance for the damage and restoration costs. They will remove any safety hazards including electrical wires. If you are able to turn off water and electricity sources before they get there, that will make the situation safer and better. In addition to these technicians, it may be useful to call a plumber depending on the situation. If the water is clean and safe, move as many furniture and personal items out of the damaged area to prevent further water damage from occurring. Technicians will also move and protect furniture and personal items, and will then start the water extraction process. They will use water extraction tools for carpet and hard floors, and use dehumidifiers to reduce the amount of moisture present. Moisture levels will need to be examined and documented and technicians inspect affected or potentially affected areas around your home. Only the areas affected by water damage will be targeted, while other areas of your home will be left alone. Fans or air movers will be used to help dry out moisture.
