What Is Water Damage Restoration?

 
Water damage restoration is the process of removing water from areas of your home or business where it doesn’t belong. This may include
 
  • bringing in pumps to remove standing water
  • commercial vacuums to get water out of carpet
  • fans to dry floors
However, water can get to other areas and cause further damage. Drywall and framework can be damaged if left to sit in water for too long. This may also lead to the growth of mold. While this can be stressful and overwhelming, it is best to not wait to take action in fixing it. Standing water also contains bacteria and other pathogens that may be harmful to your health and the health of your family.
 

Where Does Water Damage Come From?

 
In Oklahoma, we are no strangers to sever storms. Heavy rains and flooding can result in water coming into your home. We have several flood zones that homes and businesses are built in, so this is not unheard of.
 
Roof leaks are another culprit with water damage. Water coming from your roof can get into your attic and run down your walls. This results in the growth of mold as the spores attache themselves to dark, damp walls.
 
Appliance failure is another cause. Water tanks leaking or breaking, dishwashers failing, and washing machines can all lead to several gallons of water being unleashed in your home. When this happens, you need to act quickly to maintain your homes structural integrity.
 

How Water Damage Restoration Works

 
Once we have identified the source of the problem and stopped it, we can then begin removing it. Through the use of pumps and vacuums, water is relocated to outside the home, or into tanks for disposal. If the damage is only to the floors, we can make sure that carpets and hardwoods do not need replaced.
 
Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and surfaces of the affected areas. This will prevent the mold we discussed before, and get you back to normal faster. Once everything is dried, it is professionally cleaned to return it to its original state.
