The sooner water is cleaned up, the less damage there will be.

How a Water Damage Restoration Company Can Help You

When a person’s home is plagued by damage from water, one of the very first things they wonder it is if it is worth the expense to hire a professional Coon Rapids water damage restoration company or if they should just try to do the cleanup themselves. Many question the benefits of hiring a restoration company or want to know how much damage water needs to cause before contacting a professional cleaning and restoration company like SERVPRO is worth it.

When your property is damaged by Coon Rapids water as a result of a flood, a cracked or broken water line, sewage that has backed up into your home, or if water has pooled in a certain area for more than 24 hours, it is in your best interest to contact SERVPRO who can clean up and restore an area after it has been damaged by water. Having damage caused by water professionally cleaned will minimize long-term problems in the future like wood rot that could eventually weaken a home's structure.

The Sooner Water Is Extracted, The Faster an Area Will Dry
One benefit the comes from using SERVPRO is that they are equipped with the tools necessary to completely remove standing water from hard surfaces, like wood and tile, as well as from softer surfaces that could absorb Coon Rapids water, like carpets and furniture. This allows these surfaces to drive faster. The quicker water dries, the less damage will take place. If water is not dried within 48 hours, mold will begin to grow and damage the property and put the health of its occupants at risk.

Minimizing Health Concerns
Depending on where the source of the water that damaged the building is from, its occupants may be at risk from bacterial contamination or contamination from microorganisms. This is especially the case with floodwater and sewage water. Trained professionals understand the potential hazards that come from dirty water and will come equipped with the necessary equipment to clean it up properly while protecting themselves and others from health concerns.

Water Restoration Reduces Total Losses
The sooner water is cleaned up, the less damage there will be. The longer water sits in an area, the more damage it will cause to floors, drywall, and furniture. Often times, repairing a home after it has been damaged by a flood is a lot more expensive than having professionals come in and cleanup the water immediately.

SERVPRO is able to respond quickly. They can save homeowners the burden of trying to clean up water accumulation in their home themselves. As they clean, SERVPRO can identify secondary damage to the structure of the home and its foundation. They leave homeowners with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that every drop of water that is found in the home has been dried and that mold growth has been prevented.
