Has your area experienced a storm recently? Or is any of the plumbing in and around your home broken or leaking? Have you seen dripping water in your home, causing damage to furniture or other items? There are many reasons your home may be suffering from water damage, including these common problems. If you’ve noticed flooding in your basement or around your home, or you suspect that there may be water damage anywhere on your property, Southern Restoration & Construction can help.  

Flooding or anything else that causes water damage is extremely serious. When water gets into your home, all sorts of problems can form. Damaged furniture, wet carpets, soaked belongings, and growing mold are some of the problems caused by water damage in your home. And if you don’t deal with the water damage quickly, your home’s concrete foundation may be damaged, which is dangerous and leads to an expensive repair.  

Staying on top of your water damage problem is important because the longer you wait to have it fixed, the more property that will be damaged and the more expensive the repair will be. If your home has flooded because of a severe storm or burst plumbing, you won’t be able to wait to have the problem fixed, because you can’t live in a flooded home.

If you live in this area and your home or property is suffering from water damage, give Southern Restoration & Construction a call.

 Water Damage Cleanup

When your property has been damaged by water, a professional cleaning service is often required, especially if the water damage is extensive. Cleaning up after flooding or a burst pipe can be dirty and wet, and often requires special water extraction equipment that you probably don’t have access to. 

When it comes to cleaning up after a flood or other sources of water damage, you need to be cautious. Water damage can cause electrical damage as well, which can result in a shock or even electrocution if you aren’t careful. That’s why water damage cleanup is best left to the professionals. Not only are you at risk of an electric shock, but floodwater is not clean or sanitary, and you need to wear protective clothing and eye protection to be safe. If mold is present, you’ll also need to wear a respirator mask anytime you’re near the affected area to protect your respiratory health. 

Most homeowners find water damage cleanup to be overwhelming because of everything that needs to be done and because of the stress of seeing all your ruined belongings. While Southern Restoration & Construction promises to do everything possible to salvage damaged property, sometimes it just isn’t possible to salvage everything. Many homeowners don’t want to see the state of their home until after the water damage cleanup and restoration has been taken care of. 

Water damage cleanup involves removing any remaining water from your home and cleaning out the affected area. This means taking everything possible out of the rooms or home. All of your items and property need to be either cleaned and dried or thrown away if the damage is too severe. Many homeowners end up throwing away bedding and clothing because flood water is unsanitary and can be hard to clean out of these materials. Some furniture and other hard objects may be salvageable, and it is up to you to decide what to keep and what to throw away. 

Once the affected rooms or entire home has been emptied, the water damage restoration process can begin.

Water Damage Restoration

Cleaning up your home after a flood or other source of water damage can be a long, very involved process. Not only has the objects and furniture in the damaged areas been ruined or affected, so has the carpet, wood, drywall, flooring, ceilings, and everything else in the rooms you may not be able to see or don’t often think about. Even if you are equipped to remove standing water and clear out everything you can see from the rooms, you probably aren’t equipped to check inside drywall to see if the water has caused damage, or to haul away carpet and other flooring materials, or to check for mold in all sorts of places. That’s what a professional water restoration company is for, like Southern Restoration & Construction. 

Everything in the affected area needs to be cleaned, disinfected, deodorized, and dried methodically and professionally. If you do this on your own and skip a step and something doesn’t get fully cleaned and dried, mold will begin to grow and will turn that room and your home into a dangerous place to breathe and be. 

If anything is missed during the restoration process, you may be facing serious issues in the future like mold, structural damage, and lingering odors that just won’t go away. Some homeowners believe that they know what they’re doing when it comes to water damage cleanup and restoration, and they try to tackle the job on their own. This isn’t recommended because water damage cleanup and restoration is such a multi-faceted project that needs extreme attention to detail and serious knowledge of what you’re doing. When you are faced with water damage, always call a professional. 

Southern Restoration & Construction will do everything needed to completely clean and dry your home, leaving you with no more water damage and no mold or other problems. When you trust Southern Restoration & Construction with all your water damage cleanup and restoration, your home will be in very good hands and will be ready for you in no time.

Water Damage Is A Pain

At Southern Restoration & Construction, we know that dealing with water damage was one of the last things on your mind before your home flooded or had major water issues. You don’t want to be dealing with water damage cleanup or water damage restoration, and that’s why we’re here for you. 

Water damage not only affects your life right now by causing stress and making you deal with it, but it will also affect you in the future if you don’t take the proper steps now to remove the water and clean, disinfect, deodorize, and dry everything in the room or home. If mold is allowed to grow through negligence or you just not knowing any better, serious health problems can show up later down the road. Mold spores are dangerous to your health and the health of everyone in your home, which is why removing them now before they start to grow is so crucial. 

Damaged walls that aren’t allowed to dry and recover from water damage may have structural issues in the future. When water is allowed to seep into the pores of concrete or drywall, that material will begin to expand, which can cause cracks to appear and be potentially dangerous. Taking the time now to tear down ruined walls and completely dry ones that can be salvaged is imperative to keeping your home and your family safe. 

How long it will take to complete water damage cleanup and restoration depends on what areas have been damaged by water and how damaged your home is. If your entire home has flooded and still has a lot of standing water that needs to be extracted, cleanup and restoration will take longer because once the standing water has been removed, everything in your home will need to be removed and dried. The walls, floors, and ceilings of probably every room will have to be inspected and properly restored, as well as all flooring materials, belongings, and objects throughout your home. This whole process will take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the extent of the damage and all the work needed. 

If your whole house wasn’t flooded, but only a room or two, the cleanup and restoration process will be much shorter. The same steps must be taken in each of the affected rooms, but much less will need to be done since your whole house doesn’t need to be cleaned and dried. For just a room or two, the process will likely only take a couple of days, maybe a week, depending on the extent of the damage. 

When you’re faced with the task of cleaning your home after water damage, call Southern Restoration & Construction. We know that this will be a difficult time for you, especially if your whole home has been flooded and you aren’t able to live there for the time being. We promise professional, fast, affordable water damage services that will leave you with a completely dry, disinfected home in no time. Dealing with water damage sounds scary to a lot of homeowners, but with Southern Restoration & Construction, water damage doesn’t have to be scary and cleanup doesn’t have to be a difficult process. Leave it to the pros, and you’ll be back in your water-free home before you know it.
