Sources of Water Damage
Water damage can occur quickly from many sources. Here are just a few of the ways water damage can happen to your home:
- Burst pipes
- Sewage back-ups
- Waste arm leaks
- Plumbing leaks
- Overflowing or clogged toilets, sinks, and tubs
- Leaking roof
- Foundation leaks
- and many more reasons
When water comes into your home, it can cause many destructive problems for a homeowner such as electrical hazards, structure and furnishings damage, swelling, warping, cracking, deterioration, and hazardous mold. We use advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment to reduce or prevent the amount of water damage in your valuable home.
Our Water Clean-Up & Restoration Process
Water damage repair and removal is not as simple as cleaning the affected area until you can’t see the water anymore. As a highly trained water removal company, we can determine where, why, and how your water damage started in your home. After collecting accurate information about your home’s loss, we can then generate a personalized water damage remediation process to ensure your property’s safety.
Here are the exact steps of our experienced water damage restoration process to get your home back to a better-than-new status:
Step 2: Complete Water Damage Inspection
Our trained Synergy Property Restoration team inspects the water damaged area and then take immediate action to stop any leaking water to prevent any more damage. We mitigate any further damage, which is the process of reducing or preventing the amount of water damage.
Step 3: Water Removal
We use a combination of pumps, wet vacuums, and sponges to remove the standing water from your home. Our team also removes any damp furniture, carpet, and water-soaked materials to help the area dry faster.
Step 4: Drying and Dehumidifying
We use powerful blowers, turbo dryer fans, axial fans, large desiccant, and refrigerant dehumidifiers to control water vapor in the air to move large amounts of air over the wet areas to start drying and evaporation. All of this equipment will speed the drying process. State-of-the-art evaporators and dehumidifiers are used to remove the moisture from your home’s walls and floors so that mold does not start growing. Once mold enters a home, you have an entirely new set of significant issues for your family’s health and wellbeing.
Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing
Depending on how the water came into your home, it can be toxic and needs to be cleaned and sanitized thoroughly, so humans and animals do not get sick inside your home. Water from backed up sewers, and leaking toilets can have bacteria, viruses, and other toxic substances. Our clean-up crew will clean and sanitize your home and remove any of the impacted flooring or other items. Our job is to make your home safe to re-enter and enjoy.
Step 6: Repair and Restoration
Once the water damage cleaning is completed, we work with you to restore your home or property back to a better-than-new status before the emergency. Our qualified Synergy team handles all of the reconstruction, which might include electrical, plumbing, drywall, flooring, painting, roofing, and more.
Five Signs of Water Damage
Obviously, visible water on the floor is a sign that you may have water damage. But, sometimes, you can’t necessarily see water damage. Here are some signs that your home has water damage and needs a property restoration company quickly.
You may not see water damage in your Tampa Bay home, but you can hearit. Listen for something that sounds like dripping water, such as rushing water or creaking floorboards. It could be your regular plumbing system noise, but has this sound changed recently?
2. Pooling Water or Puddles
The obvious sign is that you have dripping or leaking, which can leave pools of water in your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room near a water source. Or, it could be a roof leak coming from the ceiling. If you notice an unusual puddle on the floor, then keep an eye on it to see if it comes back after you clean it up. If it does, then you may have a leak or seepage.
People with a keen sense of smell can pick up on the possible sign of water damage or moisture in your home through their noses. Dampness has a very distinct odd odor, and mold has a musky smell.
Mold is an indication that you have or have had water damage. Mold cannot grow without moisture. The condensation in your bathroom can help to create mold. It needs to be dealt with swiftly by drying the area. Synergy can help you with mold mitigation. Call Synergy Property Restoration at 855-630-4585 to inspect for mold in your home. Mold in your home can cause severe health issues for your family such as cold-like or allergy symptoms as well as headaches and nausea.
The discoloration is another sign of water damage to your home in Tampa Bay. Look for signs of water ‘streaks’ running down the side of your home. It can be created by an overflowing gutter, which will result in watermarks that show where the water has traveled down the wall.
Water Restoration Drying Methods
Getting the water out of your home as quickly as possible is a crucial factor in resolving the water damage. At Synergy Property Restoration, we utilize a variety of drying and monitoring methods and equipment to ensure optimal results. Water Damage Restoration methods include:
- Hardwood flooring drying systems
- Wall cavity drying equipment
- Extreme extractor for in-place drying
- Desiccant or refrigerant dehumidifiers
How Much Does Water Damage Clean-Up Cost?
To clean-up after water damage in a home can range from several hundred dollars up to several thousands of dollars for repairing extensive damage resulting from flood conditions. Property owners should do everything that they can to ensure that the majority of mitigation, restoration, and remediation costs are covered under a homeowners or commercial property policy, endorsement or rider.
