Water damage being sustained to your home is something that can’t always be avoided. The reality is that water damage can occur from plenty of different sources such as leaking pipes, heavy rain water, a sewer backup, fire suppression systems, and more. The first step after this has occurred is to find the source of the leak. Our certified technicians will use moisture meters and thermal imaging technology to pinpoint the source of the moisture, and from there they can begin to set up a water mitigation strategy. If you have suffered frozen or broken pipes, they will need to be repaired or replaced in order to establish a plan to dry out your property.
Significant amounts of water or flooding has the potential to cause a number of other health and safety issues in and around your property. The most important factor you should focus on is the personal safety of you and your families. Never assume that your electricity is off or not impacted by the water emergency. Contacting a local restoration firm to inspect your home or business is always a good first step. The potential for bacteria and other micro hazards to materialize from the water damage is possible, depending on the classification of the water damage disaster. There are three types of water damage classifications; depending on the level of contaminant, level three generally contains contaminants from a sewer backup.
One of the most damaging side effects of water damage to your property is the growth of mold. Mold is an organic substance that can begin growing in any area, as long as there is a porous surface and moisture available. After you have discovered water on your property, it is imperative to call quickly to avoid the growth of this fungus. Mold can begin growing on a water damaged property in just 48 hours if immediate steps aren’t taken. Jarvis Property Restoration can arrive quickly to the scene to begin assessing the situation at hand, answering any questions you may have, and strategizing a plan of action.

Large scale thunderstorms can bring on significant flooding or large scale water damage emergencies. These types of disasters will require the use of specialized equipment to extract the excess water from the property. Restoration companies can utilize vacuum powered pumps to remove excess water quickly and effectively. Once the excess water has been removed, a professional restoration firm will use fans, special heaters or dehumidifiers to dry out your property. Depending on the extent of the water damage this process can take between twenty four to seventy two hours to thoroughly dry your home.
