What Does Professional Water Damage Restoration Look Like?

Rain, natural flooding, appliance leaks, and pipe breaks are the most common home water disasters. And each can cause considerable damage in a surprisingly short amount of time. If your Central Florida home experiences water-related damage, it’s critical to contact a professional water damage restoration company right away.

The team at Central Florida Restoration Solutions has decades of experience in the restoration industry and knows how to handle even the most complex water damage restoration projects.

What to Expect During Professional Water Damage Restoration

Calling in water damage restoration experts can:

  • Reduce the amount of damage water does to your home
  • Protect your family’s health
  • Mitigate mold growth and damage
  • Prevent long-term structural damages

After the restoration crew performs any temporary protection measures to guard against further water intrusion, here’s what the water damage restoration process typically looks like.

Water Removal and Cleanup

Leaks and flooding are obvious signs of water intrusion, but experienced professionals also know where to look for hidden damage, including in drywall, carpeting, and appliances. They also use industrial equipment to remove deep-standing water and dry out affected areas.

If needed, the restoration team will dry or remove waterlogged or mold-contaminated furniture, carpeting, and other household items. Depending on how severe the damage is, they might also dry out or remove wood flooring.

Mold Detection

It only takes 24 to 48 hours for mold to begin growing and spreading throughout a water-damaged house. Fast water remediation and removal steps minimize associated safety and health issues. You’ll also receive advice on how to prevent future mold growth.

Water Damage Repairs

Your water damage restoration company can perform some repairs, and those they can’t should be performed by experienced contractors. CFRS has long-standing reciprocal relationships with local home improvement contractors who can handle repairs like roofing, drywalling, and electrical wiring.

Assistance with Homeowners’ Insurance Claim

Navigating the insurance process after a home disaster can be challenging and stressful. CFRS works with your insurer and helps ensure your claims process proceeds as quickly as possible. We assess all water and other damages and document your losses to make sure you get the compensation you’re entitled to.

While you can expect the initial drying out to take about three to five days, total restoration can take weeks or months, depending on the amount of damage. That’s why calling in a professional restoration company is so important as soon as water damage occurs. Because the longer you wait, the greater the possibility that your home could suffer mold, foundation, and other structural problems.

How to Prevent Future Water Damage

A good water damage restoration company doesn’t stop at removing water and drying out your property. At CFRS, we share tips for preventing further damage and prohibiting mold and mildew growth. And we also offer advice on how to reduce overall loss after a water disaster.

We understand that, for many homeowners, the cost of water damage restoration and repair is a primary concern, so they try to manage the problem themselves. However, by investing in professional services, you can actually reduce your overall costs and losses because:

  • The sooner water’s removed and the area dried, the less damage your home suffers.
  • Timely response protects your home from long-term structural damage.
  • You could receive more from your insurance claim, as the pros often identify water damage issues homeowners miss.
