Water damage causes property losses to the tune of billions of dollars every year. The American Insurance Association found homeowners received $9.1 billion dollars to repair damage caused by water leaks in the home between the period of 2007 to 2009, accounting for roughly 23 percent of property losses for this time period. This only takes into account water leaks and damage. There is a significant amount of damage from the Mold that comest after water damage. Fire damage is another accident that can happen at anytime.
Orange Flood is dedicated to being there when any of these disasters happen to you.
Water damage may occur as the result of a leaking or frozen pipe or water line. Overflow of a dishwasher or washing machine is also a common cause of this type of damage, and the same is true of a sink, toilet or bathtub that overflows. Basements may flood as a result of heavy rains or a roof may leak.
Regardless of where the water is coming from, homeowners need to ensure the areas affected by the water are quickly dried. Doing so requires the use of specialized equipment and methods to ensure the job is handled properly and efficiently. You can call Orange Flood to do the job right, and bill your insurance company preventing loss from damage or loss of money.
Individuals often assume floods only occur following a tornado or hurricane, yet an isolated storm or weak tropical system can do a great deal of damage in a short period of time. Before an assessment can be done of the property, any debris must be removed along with large structural items that may cause additional damage.
The roof may need to be covered or the structure dried during this process, before complete reconstruction can begin. In addition, the structure might have to be stabilized or trees removed and the property boarded up. A professional storm damage restoration provide can help in this situation to minimize any damage caused by the flood. Once these steps have been taken, only then can the water damage restoration process begin.
Tiny mold spores, when they land on a wet surface, begin growing and they need this wet surface to do so. When a company promises to remove all mold from a residence, they are promising something that isn’t possible, as the spores are found everywhere, both indoors and out. A mold spore enters the home through a door or window, on clothing, by hitching a ride on a pet or through the heating and cooling system.
Before the mold remediation process begins, the water source must be identified and corrected. If this step is not taken, the mold can easily return in a short period of time. Homeowners often don’t know they have a problem with mold though, as it grows in dark places, such as under carpets or behind walls. It isn’t until the mold begins to develop the characteristic musty, strong odor it is known for that the residents of the home realize there is an issue.
Mold remediation involves an inspection of the home and an assessment of the damage. Once these steps have been completed, the mold must be contained and the air filtered to remove microscopic spores from the air. This is done by making use of HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers to ensure the mold doesn’t spread to other areas of the home.
The mold is then removed and any materials infested with mold are removed and disposed of, especially those made of porous materials such as drywall, as they may harbor hidden mold that cannot be removed. Contents of the home and belongings of the residents are cleaned and sanitized to prevent future mold growth, and restoration services may then begin.
