When you experience water damage in your property, multiple steps need to be taken to get the property back to its pre-loss condition. Just because there isn't any standing water doesn't mean the area isn't still wet. It's imperative to properly dry out a wet area to prevent mold and structural damage. Most building materials like wood and drywall are porous, so they will retain water even if it is not visible to the naked eye. This can lead to breakdown and warping as well as mold growth. Our certified experts use science and physics to dry your property quickly. We will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to use the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to most efficiently dry your home or business, then carefully monitor the drying progress to ensure everything is on track. If you need structural drying today in Galveston, TX call us right away at (832) 974-2734.
There aren't many things that can make a homeowner feel more helpless than flood waters encroaching on their property. If your home becomes a victim of external flooding, it's critically essential that immediate action is taken to not only ensure the safety of the dwelling but to minimize the overall damage to the structure. Floodwaters are considered category 3 water, or black water, meaning they can contain a wide array of contaminants that a professional restoration team should only handle. You'll want to act swiftly when flood water infiltrates your property. Fortunately, the IICRC-certified crew at ECO Restoration & Cleaning Services is ready 24/7 to help. We can move in immediately to help assess the damage, remove the water, decontaminate the property, and prepare your home for repairs. Call us anytime at (832) 974-2734 for all of your flood damage restoration needs in Galveston, TX.
Sewage backups and overflows aren't just damaging to the structure of your property; they can be dangerous to your health. Backups are often due to blockages caused by things like soil settlement, root infiltration, pipe collapses, and grease buildup. Sewage also often enters the home due to breakdowns in neighborhood sewer systems and storm water runoff. No matter the source, our expert team is ready to help with professional tools and techniques to remove the hazards and water from your home and help you get back to normal. Don't forget, just because the water looks clean doesn't mean it doesn't contain harmful contaminants. Call us 24/7 at (832) 974-2734 for all of your sewage cleanup needs in Galveston, TX.
Water damage insurance claims depend on a few different criteria. Ultimately, that's a question you'll have to clarify with your insurance company. However, we can tell you that the viability of water damage insurance claims depends primarily on what caused the damage (storm, burst pipe, plumbing malfunction, localized flood, sump pump failure, etc.). Some insurance policies will outline scenarios that will NOT be covered without specific riders like flood insurance, or sump pump failure insurance.
Contacting a restoration contractor as well as your insurance adjuster at the same time is a good idea because the restoration contractor will help make sure that not only will the water extraction and dry out be covered but the rebuild process that should follow. If the full scope of the claim isn't outlined and agreed upon from the start, there may be issues down the line, and property owners may find themselves having to pay out of pocket to get the property completely back to normal.
That depends on the types of materials that were affected by water. Drywall, carpet, and hardwood floors will take longer to dry than other materials in the space. We use moisture meters throughout the process and in many different locations to gauge the moisture levels and will continue to adjust our fans and dehumidifiers to achieve an efficient but effective dry time. The bare minimum of "three days to dry" may only produce a surface dry, but can still leave behind moisture levels that create an ideal environment for mold to grow.
Most homeowners start trying to remove the water themselves before they realize they'll need to contact their insurance company about a claim so they can call in a water damage restoration company. However, standing water around anything with a power cord or outlet or sagging ceilings make the area unsafe. Also, many insurance claims require documentation of the loss BEFORE any work is done, including removing the water. Always take plenty of photos of the damage you see before taking any action to start cleaning up the mess. Your restoration contractor will be able to back up your insurance claim scope with the necessary technical documentation as well.
If the water damage involves Category 1 water (clean and free of microbes and bacteria), many of your personal belongings can be salvaged. Category 2 water would include other water sources, including rainwater, that, while not containing biohazards or sewage, still pose health risks and the potential for destructive microbial growth and mold. A water damage restoration technician will help you sort through the contents of the property to determine what can be safely dried, what can be restored by a textile/contents technician, and what can't be saved or salvaged. There are off-site facilities in the area that specialize in restoring water-damaged contents. Your restoration team will document all of the contents leaving the property for restoration or disposal for your records and also for reimbursement from your insurance company.
Identifying the source of the water damage is one of the first steps in both the insurance claim process and before beginning to dry out and repair the damaged areas. After all, if you replace a sagging, wet ceiling that was caused by a roof leak but don't fix the roof, too, the next rainstorm will start the cycle all over again. The buckling to your hardwood floor could be caused by a leaking pipe. We will pinpoint the exact cause of your water damage and make sure the source is repaired. We make sure your restoration job is done right the first time.
Don't wait for office hours to call ECO Restoration & Cleaning Services. We will answer your call 24/7 to respond to your water damage remediation needs. Our IICRC-certified technicians are available by calling (832) 974-2734.
