What is the Impact of Water Damage To My Home?

When water enters your home, it saturates all of the surfaces it can. This includes carpeting and flooring, as well as home furnishings, drywall, and other items. It wicks up the drywall over time, leading to saturation into the insulation and beyond.

Water can also cause the glue holding your kitchen and bathroom cabinets to begin to fail. It causes damage to carpet glue, too, making it impossible to clean thoroughly. In some cases, the water reaches as high as electrical outlets and lines, causing them to spark and become hazards. All of this can occur with just an inch or so of water.

What Should I Do if There is Flood Water in My Home?

Your first step is to leave the property. Because of the electrical risks present, it becomes essential to protect your family. Don’t walk through the water. Instead, call a professional in who can drain it, such as our team. We can turn off the water source, stop the leak, and help to pull out the water as quickly as possible.

Keep in mind that moisture on any surface can begin to grow mold within just 12 hours. The longer the water remains present, the more damage it will cause. If the property does not dry out quickly enough, it can cause mold to spread through the home’s HVAC system as well. Fast action is always best.

The Water Is Gone – How Long Will It Take for My Home to Dry Out?
Once the water is removed from the home, it may seem dry. However, it takes a great deal of time for it to truly be dried out. This can take between three and five days. This differs based on the size of the home, the methods being used to dry it out, the time of the year, and numerous other factors. In every situation, it will be important to speed up the drying as much as possible to ensure the property is less at risk for mold buildup.
Should I Turn on the Heat or Air Conditioner to Dry Out the Home?
Having on the heat may not help to improve the actual wet conditions in the home. In many cases, it is best to allow your restoration team to manage this process. If the home is at a high risk of having mold present, turning on the A/C or heat may cause it to circulate faster. On the other hand, some homes will benefit from having the temperature more regulated. Your water restoration team can help to determine the right condition for your home. Turning up the heat will not help in most situations.
What About All of the Damaged Material?

During the restoration process, a lot of material cannot be saved. If the floors are buckling, they may need to be removed. If you have hardwoods, it may be possible to sand and restore them. Again, this takes time to determine the right course of action for any situation.

The same is true for furniture, drywall, and cabinetry. The extent of the damage will ultimately determine if these items can be restored or must be replaced. It may be possible to restore some of these items properly by drying them out, cleaning them, and replacing any damaged areas. If there are items that cannot be saved, it may be possible to file an insurance claim for them.

When Is Mold Remediation Necessary?

As noted, mold is a very big problem when there is water damage in a home. Unfortunately, mold remediation is often necessary when there is significant damage present. In most situations, your restoration team will take the time to determine if mold is present, the risk of mold is present, and any evidence of it spreading. Remediation is very important. It helps ensure that the home is free from the substance, which protects your health and your home’s integrity.

Will Home Insurance Cover Your Damage?
This depends on your policy and the cause of the damage. If the damage occurs from outside flooding, such as a storm, it may not. If it occurs as a result of a water heater break or backed up sewer lines, it may. Your team can determine the cause and help you to file a claim for this coverage.
