Getting rid of water in our homes is something we all hope we never have to deal with. However, there are many reasons why we may find ourselves with puddles in our kitchen or a flooded basement. When this happens, your best option is to call in a water removal service.
How a Water Removal Service Can Help You
When a pipe bursts, appliance leaks, or your basement floods, you will most likely be dealing with more water than you can mop up. If this water has been sitting for even a small amount of time, then you are going to be looking at some form of water damage. A water removal service can help you by bringing in tools to help get rid of the water fast. ABCO Restoration is available 24/7; we get to the site as fast as possible so we can start cleaning up the water. We make sure the area is completely dry and then assess what the damage is.
After the Water Is Gone
After the area has been cleaned and dried, it’s time to take care of the damage that has occurred. The most common form of water damage is mold. This type of damage can be hazardous to your health. Since it is a form of rot, it can cause damage to your floors, walls, and anywhere else the water was present. Simply drying everything will not get rid of mold. A water removal service is also trained in mold removal and remediation. They can take care of the mold so it won’t spread and cause more damage.
Besides taking care of mold, a water removal service will work with you to determine what items can be cleaned and what needs to be replaced. Sometimes things like baseboards and drywall suffer too much water damage and need to be replaced. Occasionally, damage takes place that isn’t visible on the surface but can cause problems down the line. A professional water removal service can identify these issues and make the needed repairs.
Working with Insurance
When your home suffers from water damage you will probably need to contact your insurance company and file a claim. Most water removal services such as ABCO Restoration will work with you and your insurance every step of the way. This gives you one less thing to worry about
