Primary Methods of Water Damage Restoration

A primary concern and step before any water extraction or restoration activities begin is to ensure that the source of the water has been identified, shut off and repaired or replaced. No one should start or perform any 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 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.

The Destructive Nature of Water

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.

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 emergency water damage 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 services have a high likelihood of repairing and restoring much of your home and your furnishings.

The destructive power of water is greatly diminished when swift and effective intervention is introduced. Although the damage to your home may look severe and unrepairable, you will be surprised to see the amazing results that prompt water cleanup and restoration can produce.

From flooring to furniture to precious art or collectables, iDry Columbus has been restoring and repairing water damaged homes and property for over 20 years.

Secondary Damages to Your Home or Business

If the water extraction wasn’t performed properly, the possibility of secondary damages increases. These damages should be avoided at all cost, 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.

Quick tips to discovering that the initial water damage restoration services may need further attention:

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 stays 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 – Water Damage Cleanup. Master Certified in Water Damage Restoration.

Does Insurance Cover Water Damage Restoration?

The answer to this question varies depending on your unique home or business owners policy.

In general, insurance will help to pay for the emergency cleanup, water removal and water damage restoration services as well as the 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 coverages; 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.

Water Damage Repair

iDry approaches water damage very scientifically. In order to determine if your property will need to be replaced or if we are able to restore it, we evaluate the following:

-The amount of property damage present

-The degree to which contamination has occurred (what kind of water we are dealing with)

-The cost of restoration vs. the cost of replacement-what makes the most sense financially

Regardless of how the damage is treated, if not acted upon promptly you could be facing major financial and health burdens.

One of the major concerns when dealing with the damages caused by water is the onset of mold growth which can be extremely dangerous for your home and family.

Water Damage Repair Cost

The cost to the homeowner to repair any damages incurred by water will depend on many factors, most importantly, the extent of the damage to the home and whether the materials can be repaired or will need to be replaced.

If damages are extensive and emergency water damage restoration services were delayed in getting to your home, there is a higher likelihood that you will be paying a higher bill for the damages and that materials will need to be replaced.

Fortunately, our emergency response services are available 24 hours a day, with certified water damage technicians arriving at your home or business within 60 minutes.

Swift action in water situations helps to ensure that most of your home and belongings will be salvaged and restored to its full capacity.
