Water Removal Company South Florida
Welcome to Restoration Maintenance, your leading choice for water restoration and removal in South Florida. There are few things worse than waking up to find that you have water damage. This can occur because a leaky pipe exploded in the middle of the night or a massive rainstorm passed through town. With experience with both residential and commercial cleanup, the only call that you need to make to get help with water removal is to us.
First 5 Things to Do When You Have Water in Your Home or Business
- Turn Off the Water
Turning off the water is the first thing that you can do after a flood. Both homes and commercial properties have a water main that sends water from the street. If you don’t know where the supply line is, you can trace the pipes back until you find it.
- Look for Damage
A common mistake that some property owners make is that they don’t look for signs of damage. They think that simply using fans to dry the standing water is the only thing they need to do. Now is a good time to look for cracks in the foundation or electrical problems. If you don’t feel confident doing this yourself, our trained crew can help.
- Grab a Camera
Before you call your insurer, take photos of the standing water and any damage that you see. Taking photos is an easy way to show any personal belongings or objects that you had in the space that insurance can cover.
- Call the Insurer
As long as you have the right insurer, insurance should step in and cover the damage that you had. Not only does this include property damage, but it will also cover the loss of items in the building. You might have products that you sell to others that you need to replace. If you have flooding in your home, you may need to replace furniture, electronics and other items.
- Get Help Removing the Water
Getting rid of standing water is the most important thing that you can do after a flood. The longer that you leave the water there, the greater the risk is that you cannot save the property. Florida can come in and condemn the building because it is no longer habitable. With commercial properties, they can condemn the buildings because people can no longer work there. We’ll go over some of the reasons to turn to us and how we can help you with this process.
Extracting the Water
Extracting the excess water is one of the top things that we can do after a flood. We have all the tools necessary to remove the water that we can see. Standing water can build up on top of your carpets and any other flooring. If you have concrete floors that weren’t sealed, the moisture can seep inside and form cracks on the surface. You can rest assured that we remove all the water from the structure.
You need more than just water extraction when dealing with a flooded space. Depending on where the water originated, you might have more than just freshwater or saltwater in the building. Our diagnostic testing tools allow us to check the property for any damage that can affect humans and animals later. That water might leave behind trace amounts of chemicals such as pesticides that can make you sick. You might have bacteria or mold in the building too. With our testing, we can look at every space and find any trace contaminants left behind. This ensures that the building is safe before you return.
One of the more important building materials used in the construction of residential and commercial properties today is drywall. You may not realize that there is a layer of drywall hidden behind the paint or wallpaper in your home until your roof leaks. Any moisture that gets into the drywall can cause it to crumble. This can cause the paint or wallpaper to peel away from the walls.
Another possible issue occurs when the roof cracks. The drywall used on your ceiling and the other building materials between the walls can only support a certain amount of weight. If the roof keeps leaking, the drywall can collapse and allow building materials to shower onto the floor. That plaster and drywall can spread to other areas because you or your pets track it around too.
With one call to Restoration Maintenance, you can hire a talented team to handle your drywall replacement needs. Not only can we remove the old walls, but we can replace them and make the new walls match the old finishes. Our team always uses the proper safety gear to keep the plaster from floating through your home or business. We can make the drywall and finished wall blend seamlessly with the rest of the building.
A major worry that many have about properties that suffered flood damage is mold. You’ve probably heard about the dangers of black mold, but other types of mold can cause just as many problems. Those with breathing problems will have issues if they inhale the spores. It can worsen their breathing issues and make it hard for them to live in the home or spend any time there.
Our mold remediation services include both mold inspection and removal. You might live with mold every day and not know it because it’s hidden in the walls. We often see mold growing on walls near HVAC and AC units in Florida. No matter how often you use that unit, condensation can drip off the machine and create the perfect environment for mold.
With our mold inspection tools, we can get inside your walls to find and track those spores without tearing open the drywall first. Our team can find mold hiding anywhere in the space and determine the exact type of mold that you have. This allows us to figure out the best course of treatment to get rid of it.
Some of the possible dangers of mold include worsening symptoms for those who suffer from asthma and allergies. Our flood cleanup services include mold removal that makes the building safe for everyone again. We eliminate all traces of the mold before we give you the go-ahead to return.
