Water Damage Mitigation
Water damage is one of the most frequently filed home insurance claims in the United States. Most everyone thinks of natural disasters like hurricanes or floods as the main source of water damage claims, but most often they are caused by simple things like a leaky pipe or water line, roof damage, a broken washing machine hose, sewer back up, or other plumbing problems. Regardless of the source, the most important thing is to take immediate action to stop the water leak and to begin repairs to mitigate further damage. This is where a professional water restoration contractor can help.
A professional water restoration contractor has the tools and equipment to stop the water leak, extract the leaked water, begin emergency repairs, and clean up the mess to preserve and protect the home and its contents so further damage does not occur. They can deploy fans and dehumidifiers to begin the drying process, get furniture up and away from the water and take steps to prevent wet carpet odors. Inhibitors can be applied to help prevent mold and mildew and they can remove the carpet if necessary.
It is up to the homeowner to recognize water damage as quickly as possible and to take the necessary actions to reduce or prevent further damage. If you suspect you have a water leak, regardless of the source, contact a professional water restoration contractor and have them determine the source and nature of the problem. Most reputable restoration contractors will inspect your home for free and give you a no obligation quote on what it will take and how much it will cost to repair your water damage.
