Water Damage Repair
What to do if your home needs water damage repair?
If your home requires water damage repair, engage a specialist or professional that has many referrals within the private or insurance spheres.
The restoration company will go through what is required to dry the property out and ensure you get your property back to its pre-loss condition.
In preparation for a visit by professionals, remove contents that are saturated. Once the technicians arrive, they will install fans, dehumidifiers, or use a method of heat drying.
How does water damage repair work?
Usually if a property has undergone water damage, the client will contact the insurance company who will then send out their preferred restoration company.
However, depending on the type of restorer that the insurance company engages, the situation might not work in your favour.
Not all companies will execute the work at a high level and often the damage repair is not done in accordance to the standard guidelines which results in mould. In terms of physical damage repair, the wet structure must be dried back to its benchmark, which is a full and complete restoration.
How can water damage be treated or managed over time?
It is recommended to inspect flexi hoses once or twice a year, and replace them regularly.
If the source of the water damage is a leaky pipe or a hole in the roof, then getting the source fixed is key to managing the problem over time. If you don’t have access to a restoration company and need action to be taken immediately, extract as much moisture as possible.
Open doors and windows and introduce some air flow to dry the premises as much as possible.
