What events can cause water damage?
Many things can cause San Diego water damage. A hurricane, tornado or flood can cause water damage, but so can a broken pipe or even a small leak not caught quickly. You can also have a malfunction of a household or commercial appliance like a washing machine or dishwasher. In addition, a septic tank overflow can cause raw sewage to get into your structure or the crawlspace beneath. Plus, roof drains and gutters can back up and allow water to get into your building. Even a poorly made bathtub can cause water damage when it cracks or develops a slow leak. Water gets into buildings in many ways, and each has to dealt with in a unique way.
Is it possible to prevent water damage?
Proper maintenance of all parts of your structure can help. This includes water pipes, gutters, appliances and more. Monthly inspections of your septic tank, if you have one, is also important. Plus, you must know where your water shutoff valve is located and know how to use it. If you notice a sudden increase in your water bill, that can be an indication of a major leak. Mold on walls also indicates water damage, and finding the source can keep the problem from worsening. Some water damage, however, cannot be prevented and must be dealt with after the fact.
What should I do after water damage happens?
The first thing to do is to contact Orange Restoration, your San Diego water damage remediation company. Delaying can cause mold or cause it to worsen and spread. Waiting also makes it more likely that wood, walls and carpet will have to be replaced. Then, contact your insurance company to start the claim process. Remember, never enter any area where there’s standing water as well as electrical appliances. Having the power turned off by the utility company may be necessary. Remember not to take chances with your safety just to stop the water flow or begin the remediation process.
What can I do if my crawl space is flooded?
If your crawl space — the are beneath your building that allows workers access to your plumbing and electrical service — is flooded, you need to contact a water damage restoration company. Because there are electrical wires in this area, a flooded crawl space can be a very dangerous situation. It can also lead to mold, water damage to the wood framing of your home or commercial building and other serious consequences. If there is a sewage leak under your building, a special tool called a sewer gas evacuator may be used to help with the problem. No matter what has happened, water damage remediators can put it right.
What are some common problems that result from water damage?
Your San Diego water damage remediation company can solve the problems that result from water damage — and in some cases catch and reverse the process before the damage is done. Damage that’s possible and can result in loss of building value includes paint and wallpaper problems, carpet destruct, rotten wood floors, mold growth and more. Don’t take chances with your building or your health by allowing water damage to your home or commercial building to go unresolved.
Why is mold such a big problem?
One of the most dangerous potential results of water damage is mold growth. In addition to harming your health and the health of your family or employees, it can destroy furnishings, wood and drywall. Mold causes respiratory problems and is carcinogenic. People have reported diarrhea, infections and flu-like symptoms as a result of mold exposure, and growth continues as long as water and proper temperatures are available until the mold is removed.
What is involved in the water damage restoration process?
Our team of water damage restoration experts at Orange Restoration first inspect the area and attempt to stop further water damage, if possible. Then, we use water extraction machines to remove standing water. Once the water is removed as well as possible, we begin the drying process using heavy-duty fans and dehumidifiers. When an area is as dry as possible, air tests are performed to ensure the problem is completely resolved and that moisture as well as mold spores are removed. Without testing, there is no way to be sure the process has been completed satisfactorily.
Will insurance cover my home or commercial building’s water damage?
In some cases it will. Whether water damage is covered in your case depends on the source of the damage and whether adequate precautions were taken to attempt to prevent the circumstances that caused the damage. At Orange Restoration, we’re experienced with the water damage insurance process and deal with insurance companies every day. There is no better team to have on your side as you navigate the process of filing a successful claim. Plus, our services are accepted and even recommended by insurance companies.
Jonathan and his team were awesome. Our neighbor’s washer drain malfunctioned, unnoticed by them, and drained two loads into our home. Needless to say, this caused significant damage to nearly half of our home. To make matters worse, this happened on a holiday weekend, and many offices were closed. We assumed Orange Restoration would be too, so we waited until the next business day to call. Jonathan advised us the first step was to get the water dried as soon as possible. We hired him and his crew to start the job the next evening. They had another appointment earlier in the day, but worked with our schedules. We were fortunate enough to not have any mold, despite having waited. It took 3-4 days to get everything dried out, but it’s finally done. The team was courteous, professional and knowledgeable. The insurance company said the estimate was accurate and contained no mistakes, so they were able to process our claim quickly. While water damage is never a good experience, Orange Restoration made it so much easier.
