Water extraction company
Water from storm, flood, and plumbing leaks – like pipe and washer bursts, water heater leaks, and toilet overflow – can damage your home and office furniture as well as appliances. Sadly, if treated incorrectly, these damaged things cannot be restored anymore.
Home and business owners, in some instances, can sit back and relax when the insurance for their furniture and appliances covers water damages. On the other hand, if the damaged property is not covered, finding the right person to restore it to its working condition can be stressful.
When looking for a contractor that will take care of water damage restoration services, I consider hiring someone who is very knowledgeable on what to do. I make sure that the people I will hire are IICRC certified and will be able to do same-day service.
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is a non-profit organization certifying and setting standards for the inspection, cleaning, and restoration services. However, finding the perfect contractor is just one part of the job.
What I do as an initial response to the water damage is:
- Remove the damaged property in the water as quickly as possible and put it in a dry area.
- Allow wet items to dry up. I make sure also that my carpets dry out because it can cause mold growth.
- Look for a person that will take care of the restoration process.
One great thing to avoid these problems from happening again is to be aware and prepared at all times. Always keep your pipes in good shape and in working condition. However, when it comes to natural calamities like storms and floods, make sure to keep your electronic appliances as elevated as possible so that water cannot reach them.
