Dealing with Flood and Water Damage

Your home has been flooded and now it is time to start the repairs. When you see the damage yourself, it may appear that everything is destroyed. However, this is not always true. In many cases, quite a lot of your home and belongings can be salvaged and repaired. Many nonporous materials can be saved and in many cases clothing and similar items can be soaked in soap and washed.

To get started on the road to recovery, your first step should be to call in the professionals. Why should you call them? Water damage restoration professionals are better equipped to know what can be saved and what is beyond salvageable. They are knowledgeable about finding hidden damage, how to remove damage materials, and how to tell if something is considered hazardous.

Here at RestorePro911, we are not only certified by the IICRC and members of the NEIRC and RIA, we have A ratings with the BBB and Angie’s List. Specializing in water and fire damage, odor control, applied microbial remediation and applied structural drying. This means that we can survey your property for water damage and give an accurate estimate on what it will take to make the correct repairs.

While each property is different and the type of water damage can change what repairs are needed, our team is skilled at handling the job.

Some of the services we provide are:

  • Removing damaged materials
  • Flooring and wall replacement
  • Water removal (even gray and black water)
  • Odor elimination
  • Sanitization
  • Mold remediation
  • Help with insurance claims

Getting the damage repaired as quickly as possible is our top priority as the longer it waits, the more dangerous it becomes. As water sits, it allows for bacteria to set up and grow, leading to mold and even more damage. This is why removing all water and any moist materials immediately is very important. After that has been accomplished, we can assess the rest of the damage, deciding what can be salvaged and what must be replaced. Work will begin immediately as delays can cause more damage.

We can also help with prevention process. Securing your home against future flooding can not only save you money in the long term, but it may increase your property value and possibly reduce your insurance payments. (This is not a guarantee as it depends solely on the housing market and your insurance company.) This can include determining your area’s flood risk, inspecting sump pumps and drains to ensure they are operating correctly, raising the water heater, furnace and other permanent equipment off the ground and more.
