iDry Columbus: Your Go-To Experts for Water Damage Restoration

A primary concern and step before any water extraction or restoration activities begin are to ensure that the source of the water has been identified, shut off, and repaired or replaced. No one should start or perform any water damage restoration services in your home or business unless the source of the water has been identified.

Pro-tip: With so many exclusions to an individual home or business owner’s insurance policy, making the identification of the source of the water is vital to any potential property damage claim.

From truck-mounted extraction units capable of removing more than 750 gallons of water a minute to submersible waste pumps and weighted extraction tools, getting the water out of your home or business is one of the primary steps involved in performing building restoration.

Pro-tip: Keep extraction in mind, it is the single most important step every water damage restoration company must do.

Without proper water extraction, the water left in your home or business must be removed by evaporation. The more moisture left behind, the longer the remaining building materials will take to reach a safe and predetermined dry standard.

Water is one of the most destructive substances in an indoor environment. Flooding or excess moisture inside your home can lead to the destruction and deterioration of your home’s infrastructure and furnishings.

The water inside your home becomes more of a problem when the water is unsanitary, such as a sewage backup. This can be dangerous not only to your home but to your health and the health of your family as well.

If restoration services are not dispatched right away, ideally within 24-48 hours, serious damage can be done to your home. However, if caught quickly enough, professional water damage cleanup services have a high likelihood of repairing and restoring much of your home and your furnishings.

Secondary Damages to Your Home or Business

If the water extraction wasn’t performed properly, the possibility of secondary damage increases. These damages should be avoided at all costs, keep in mind that most major insurance carriers exclude coverage for mold growth and will not cover the cost of the mold removal from your personal property or the remaining building materials.

Has the carpet padding been removed? If not, pull back a corner of the carpeting and squeeze-test a corner of the padding. Is it dripping water? Continue extraction or remove the carpet padding.

Padding should only remain on a category 1 water loss, and only then when you and the restorer are comfortable documenting that there are no contaminants in the water that affected the carpet padding.

Top-down drying, where the carpet and padding stay intact should never be attempted on any category of loss without the proper water extraction tools. Remember any moisture left behind can only be removed as fast as the rate of evaporation.

If you’re in need of a high-quality restoration company, look no further and trust in the associates and team members of iDry Columbus.

Will My Insurance Policy Cover Water Damage?

The answer to this question varies depending on your unique home or business owner’s policy.

In general, insurance will help to pay for the emergency cleanup, basement flooding, water removal services as well as the water damage repair expenses related to water damage if the damage was sudden and accidental.

This means, if you experience the unfortunate event of a pipe bursting and water drenching your ceiling, your insurance policy will most likely help you to pay for the related expenses.

Most insurance policies have two different types of coverage; dwelling coverage and personal property coverage.

Dwelling coverage will help to pay for damages to the structure of your home, like when a pipe bursts and your ceiling is compromised. Personal property coverage covers your personal belongings inside your home. So, if the burst pipe causes water to ruin your antique piano, personal property coverage would help with repair costs.

We’re available 24/7 to respond to emergency situations, and we use the latest technology to ensure a fast and efficient restoration process.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does water damage restoration cost?

Your home can, unfortunately, succumb to all sorts of damage from water, and how much you end up having to pay for repairs or replacements depends on an array of factors. Flooring, walls, and appliances may need replacing if the degree is severe enough; in addition, mold remediation could be necessary which often comes with further costs - not only financial but health-wise too as it produces a hazardous smell. Consider your situation carefully before making any decisions so that accurate estimates are produced when assessing what needs restoring along with associated fees.



How long does it take for water damage restoration?

After a burst pipe has wreaked havoc, the dreaded aftermath of water damage and mold growth can come quickly. Without swift action in removing all traces of moisture from your home within 48 hours, you could be at risk for dangerous mold spores to begin growing on surfaces such as wooden door frames or flooring. To mitigate this risk and help restore your home back to its original condition post-flood, an expert in water damage restoration must be called upon right away. From there it's essential that everything gets dried out ASAP by opening windows and cabinet doors while also utilizing portable dehumidifiers - if necessary investing in large ones - so no further harm comes due to humidity levels remaining too high within your residence.

Depending on the degree of damage caused, restoring a home from a water disaster can be quite an undertaking. For smaller problems like single-room spills or contained flooding, it may take several weeks to get things dried out and back in order. However, for larger-scale disasters such as basements with ruptured pipes that affect multiple rooms, the process could be much longer – up to three weeks just for drying alone. No matter what kind of mess you're dealing with though, it's still important to act quickly so further damage isn't inflicted upon your home!
