Inclement weather and humid marine layer moisture are recipes for possible water damage in Torrey Pines. And, of course, there’s always a leaking toilet or sink – even the dishwasher – to blame for water invading your home. You must take action quickly. Your first task is to remove as much excess water as possible, drying surfaces as best you can. You can rent large fans (even industrial grade versions) and sump pumps to drain the excess water outside of your home. Once this is done, it’s time to call in restoration specialists to assess the extent of the damage and take the steps necessary to restore your property. Why bring in specialists instead of doing the work yourself? Professionals will have all of the equipment necessary, as well as the know-how to perform the restoration work quickly and efficiently. Plus, safety is an issue. You would have to deal with air quality problems, slipping on slick surfaces, heavy lifting, and electricity. The experts know how to deal with all of these issues.
The box fans you’re probably using will not thoroughly dry highly damp surfaces – at least not in time to stop the eventual growth of mold. That is why it’s best to ultimately call a water restoration specialist in to do the “heavy lifting” of drying those surfaces. They will employ industrial-grade fans that will remove moisture thoroughly from materials in half the time it would take smaller fans to do this. But that’s only one thing. They will also have at their disposal other equipment such as air movers, air scrubbers, dehumidifiers, wood floor drying systems, and sub floor drying equipment. Some of this equipment must remain in your home to continue the drying process. They will also use sanitizing and deodorizing equipment, particularly if there is extensive contamination from sewer water damage in Torrey Pines.
Also, be sure to check your homeowner’s insurance policy to see if you are covered for water damage restoration, particularly in the event of flooding or pipe breaks. Understand, however, that your claim must be officially submitted by a professional restoration company who will provide your insurance company with a full inspection report. If you file a claim by yourself you run the risk of the claim not being approved. Be sure to document all of the damage yourself prior to bringing in restoration specialists. This can be a simple accounting of all damaged items within the affected area.
