Emergency Water Removal
Water is perhaps one of the most worrisome of all materials in terms of home damage. Though water may seem like an easy thing to clean up, it does not take long for this type of damage to destroy a home.
5 Star Restoration Specialists provides emergency help to those who have standing water in their home. If you have water that’s come into your home, it is essential that you call a licensed professional to help. Our team can be there quickly to do so. We provide a 45 minute guaranteed response time to you. That means that within 45 minutes, we can respond to your call and begin providing you with help.
When Do You Need Water Removal Services?
Many homeowners struggle with when to call for water extraction help. However, it is absolutely never a good idea to wait to have a team come out. This puts you and your home at risk. Our licensed technicians can help you instead. Here are a few examples of when to give us a call.
- You have water lines or pipes that have burst in your home. They have caused significant damage or standing water.
- You have a drain or sewer line that has backed up into your home.
- You have damaged roofing, foundation materials, or siding that has allowed water from a storm to get into your home.
- You have a hot water heater that exploded or leaked so much, so it saturated your home.
- Any other instance in which you have saturated carpeting or flooring, standing water, or very damp conditions.
In these situations, the water cannot drain away on its own. Homes are meant to block out water. That means that when water is present, it does not have a fast and easy way to drain out of your home. At 5 Star Restoration Specialists, our team arrives at your home to provide a fast and efficient way of removing the water.
The sooner you call us, the more likely it is that we can save and restore some of your belongings. The longer your items remain wet, the harder it is to do this.
How Is Water Removed from a Home?
At 5 Star Restoration Specialists, we have several methods to use to remove water from a home. Our first goal is to stop the flow of water into the space. This may mean turning off water to the home, unblocking drains, or otherwise eliminating the cause of water buildup.
Then, we can use extraction tools to pull the water from the home. This is done in an efficient manner to ensure that we remove the standing water quickly. We can use these methods if you have an inch of water on your floor or you have a foot of it. Like powerful vacuums, we can remove the water from the space and dispose of it properly.
We customize the treatment plan for any home based on the conditions present. Suctioning out the water is just one option available to our team for accomplishing this.
Drying Out Your Home
A component of our storm and water damage restoration work is to also dry out the home. This process takes a bit more time. And, it includes numerous steps along the way. Here are some of the steps we may need to take to help dry out your home thoroughly.
Removing Furniture and Solid Items
We may need to remove furniture and other items from the area of damage. For example, removing anything possible from the basement where the flood is occurring and moving these items into the garage allows us to properly clean items. This is a key component of the restoration work we do. Anything that can be saved will be.
Removing Debris from the Space
Some items may not be able to be cleaned. It is common for things like carpeting, drywall, and upholstered items to be unsalvageable. It is never our goal to remove items that can be cleaned and saved. We will work closely with you to ensure that anything possible is properly protected. However, items that cannot be saved are hauled away for you.
Airing Out the Surfaces
We do not want to turn on heating and cooling systems to help dry out the home in some situations. This would allow bacteria and mold from the damaged area to spread throughout the home. It is simply not good for your family, your home, or your heating and cooling systems. Instead, we’ll use other methods to safely remove the moisture from your home. The extent of the damage determines how long this is likely to take.
Cleaning the Surfaces
We then work with you to customize the cleaning process. Some property owners only want us to remove water. That is no problem. However, we highly recommend a professional cleaning and sanitization of your home. This helps to prevent the development of mold. In some situations, you may already have mold present. We can offer treatment options for it in this case. We can also help with any restoration work necessary.
