Water and Flood Damage Restoration
FAST RESPONSE TIME IS THE ANSWER TO SUCCESSFUL WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION
If your home or business requires water damage restoration due to a wet basementor flood, damaged plumbing or appliances, or excess water as a result of fire suppression, quick response time is the key to successful water damage restoration.
The effects of basement flood damage or other water damage can go quickly from bad to irreparable if not addressed immediately. Excess water in your home or business can cause electrical hazards, expensive damage to your property structure and furnishings, and lead to the growth of hazardous mold.
Water damage is a significant danger to both homes and businesses. Beginning water mitigation and extraction procedures as soon as possible prevents water damage from spreading, lowers costs and means less stress for you. Waiting to begin water and flood restoration services can cause secondary damage to your property, carpets and other furnishings in your home or business, and can also lead to the spread of hazardous mold contamination.
Waiting can also contribute to extreme water damage to hardwood floors and require costly replacement, and contribute to unpleasant odours from absorbed water that can be difficult to get rid of.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU EXPERIENCE WATER DAMAGE FROM A BASEMENT FLOOD OR OTHER SOURCE.
- Call for professional help. Structural damage from water and bacteria growth can begin within hours.
- Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
- Remove wet area rugs or other floor coverings not permanently attached. Do not attempt to start removing your wall-to-wall carpet. This should only be done by professional restoration specialists.
WATER DAMAGE PREVENTION TIPS
Regularly check the following to ensure they are secure, in good condition and leak free:
- Hot water tanks, washing machine hoses, dishwashers, refrigerators and ice makers.
- Clean your gutters every autumn to prevent backup and leaks.
- Prevent frozen pipes and potential flooding by keeping your home or business heated while you’re away for an extended period of time.
- Close interior valves for exterior faucets during the winter months.
Leave cabinet doors open during extremely cold weather to allow warm air in to help prevent pipes from freezing.
Why did the technician leave wet carpet on my stairs?
After water damage in your home, stair carpeting is generally not removed for safety reasons. Exposed tack strips or staples, especially on steps, can be dangerous. However, there are situations where removing carpet from stairs is necessary to prevent damage to hardwood steps underneath, or in the case of sewage contamination. Removing tack strips is not advised, as this may damage the hardwood or the subfloor. Extreme caution must be used whenever the tack strip is exposed or when the carpeted stairs are damp. If carpet left on the stairs is unsalvageable, it will be removed when new carpet is installed.
If the ceilings are wet, what needs to be done?
ServiceMaster Restore’s water damage professionals will evaluate moisture content in your ceiling areas to determine the severity of the damage. They may also have to remove some of your ceiling for ventilation purposes. Wet insulation inside the ceiling can also be a hazard and therefore may also need to be removed.
