Water Damage

As a property owner, you know that there are few things more important than protecting your investment in your property. One of the most common threats to any home or office is the event of water damage. Studies show that nearly 98% of property owners face water damage at some point, so really it is only a matter of degree. Whether your water damage comes in the form of a small leak, faulty plumbing, burst pipes or even a flood or sewage backup, it can be a real trial to clean up. At Element Restoration Group we know that, especially in the case of extreme saturation, the damage to your home or office can seem overwhelming. Without the proper training and equipment, a large-scale cleanup effort is nearly impossible to restore. That’s where we come in. At Element Restoration Group our team of service technicians has the training, the experience and the industrial-level equipment to get the job done right.

When water damage occurs, it’s like a timer has been set. You want to get your property dried out before that clock runs out, or the damage will begin to multiply. Saturation can lead to all sorts of problems, it can ruin your carpets and upholstery, and seep into walls and floors, dripping into the spaces between and raising the humidity there. Excess water can cause the plaster to swell and bubble, and if water gets between the walls you run the risk of saturating the insulation and drywall, inviting mold and fungus into your environment. Wood becomes spongy and unstable, laminates can peel and discolor, and suddenly you find yourself with a much larger problem than before. In any instance of water saturation, it is vital to call the experts at Element Restoration Group as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Every minute counts, and the sooner you call us, the better chance you have of saving your valuable property and inventory. Our team is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you never have to wait for quality, professional service.

One of the main problems that follow incidences of water damage is mold. Mold spores are microscopic. They float on the air, all around us, all the time—seeking the right conditions to settle in and expand. Now, in nature, this is a fairly benign process. Mold likes to grow on organic substances, breaking them down into their component elements, which return to the soil, enriching it for future plants to use. It’s a beautiful and vital part of the ecosystem—right up until it invades your property. Then it can be a real problem. A home or office tends to be a fairly closed system, and once mold has been introduced, it can spread like wildfire. A home or office that has suffered water damage will probably also have to deal with mold unless swift precautions have been taken. Even then, sometimes accidents happen, and sometimes water damage goes undetected. At Element Restoration Group we also offer mold removal services, as part of our comprehensive restoration package.

The most dreaded form of water damage takes the form of sewage. It can happen to anyone, and there are few things more disruptive and dangerous to a home or office than the introduction of tainted water. The IICRC categorizes water that has been contaminated by human waste, biological agents, disease-causing bacteria or fungus as Category 3. In the past, this was known as “black water,” but whatever you call it, it spells trouble for a property owner. At Element Restoration Group we possess the training to identify, remove and restore all types of water damage, even biohazardous Category 3 sewage. Category 3 water can come from many sources, from pipes to overflowing sewers, even from water flooding in from nearby lakes and streams can be contaminated. If you are unsure of the nature of the water damage, you should always call in a professional team as there are many types of virus and bacteria that are resistant to over the counter cleaning methods. Even bleach does not kill every type of hazardous waste. It is better, and safer, to contain the area if possible, and contact the professionals at Element Restoration Group. We have training to deal with hazardous situations, and we have the gear and know the proper steps to ensure both our safety and the safety of the building’s occupants.

It can be tempting to attempt to remediate your water damage problem yourself. Open the windows, hang out the rugs, toss out a couple of box fans and the problem will take care of itself, right? Unfortunately, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Once the humidity in an area has been raised through the introduction of excessive water, it becomes that much harder to get things to completely dry out. Mold loves any area where the moisture level reaches above 45%, and it only takes between 48 and 72 hours to really set in. That isn’t a lot of time to dry things out, and it certainly isn’t going to happen without professional-grade equipment on hand to speed things along.

It’s tempting to call your insurance company first, in the event of water damage—especially the large-scale damage that comes as a result of flood or fire. At Element Restoration Group we can help you not only with the cleanup and restoration of your property, but also the assessment of the damage. We can speak directly to your insurance agent, providing them with a detailed understanding of the damage that has occurred. In any situation involving water damage, it is important to remember that the progressive damage to your property, belongings or inventory will increase exponentially the longer you wait.

The restoration process begins as soon as we show up, and with our experience, training and equipment, the odds of saving your flooring, furniture, and upholstery greatly improves.
