Water damage is usually associated with some form of flooding which may result from natural flooding or even domestic sources. When heavy rains and storms cause rivers to overflow flood damage can be severe. However flooding from domestic sources such as a burst pipe, open tap or leaking roof can also result in extensive water damage.
The first thing a disaster recovery expert will do is to remove all the water as quickly as possible. This is important because standing water can quickly become contaminated and could pose health risks. Water also has to be removed quickly in order to limit damage and loss. Water restoration also involves drying, cleaning, decontamination and mold remediation. A water restoration team will use special equipment such as industrial pumps, air movers and dryers to remove water and dry everything. There will also be many water logged items a water restoration team will do their best to salvage whatever they can.
Once the water has been removed and surfaces and items have been dried and cleaned the repair and reconstruction process can begin. Apart from salvaging this could involve general building and construction work.
Extensive water damage will normally result in insurance claims and a disaster recovery expert such as Scavello Restoration will be able to assist you with paper work and water damage insurance claims.
