HELP!!!  I'VE HAD WATER DAMAGE.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?!

When water damage occurs, a delay in action of even a few hours can make the difference in saving expensive carpets and furniture. READ THIS to minimize your losses... 1. AVOID HAZARDS - Be extremely careful of the deadly combination of water and electricity. Also be cautious of slippery or wet carpets and floors. Stay away from raw sewage backups, which contain nasty bacteria and can be harmful to your health. 2. STOP THE SOURCE OF WATER - whenever possible, turn off the water at the source, or at the shutoff valve. 3. TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION - by calling Classic Carpet Care & Restoration at (855) 774-4514. Our dispatchers will have a certified water damage expert contact you immediately.   We can be on our way as soon as you call! 4. REMOVE FURNITURE - Wood furniture will cause stains which cannot be removed. Rust stains from metal are difficult to remove and may be permanent. 95% of water damage jobs are restorable, and the 5% which aren't restored, most are caused by not doing this. So either move furniture that's even near water or place something under the legs.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN STRUCTURAL DRYING IS DELAYED?

What if I decide to wait...?

WATER DAMAGE

Water damage arises from many sources.  It may be as simple as an air conditioner condensation pan or sink overflow, a frozen pipe, or a malfunctioning appliance.  Unfortunately, it can be as messy as a sewage backup or rain water flowing in from the outside a home or business. Regardless of the source of your water loss, or whether or not insurance coverage is available to cover your loss, it is up to you, the individual property owner, to take “reasonable and prudent steps to preserve protect and secure their property from further damage”. We understand that this can be overwhelming and probably a little confusing, and we sympathize with you.  We will do everything possible to help you through this trying experience.

DAMAGE CONTAINMENT

Of the many types of disasters, water damage disasters escalate the most rapidly into potential hazards.  Rapid response is critical.  Not just to avoid increased property damage, but also to avoid health hazards. Within minutes…  Water spreads quickly to additional areas, rapidly increasing the scope and cost of the loss.  Stain from furniture may discolor carpet permanently.  Paper goods are ruined by moisture absorption, swelling and warping. Within hours…   Furniture in direct contact with water swells or splits.  Drywall swells paneling warps.  Odor becomes apparent. Within days…   Mold appears, along with characteristic “musty” odor.  Sensitive internal components in pianos and organs swell and malfunction with elevated humidity.  Metal surfaces begin to rust.  Doors and window casings swell and distort or delaminate.  Wood decking joists and studs begin to swell, warp and split.  Electronic components malfunction due to moisture condensation.  Allergic reactions escalate.  Occupants with respiratory problems or compromised immune systems experience distress. Within weeks…   Mold discolors and destroys organic materials, jute backings, paper coverings on drywall, paneling, and wood.  Structural wood warps and splits, while chemicals in the wood dissolve and discolor or destroy finishes.  Costs escalate dramatically as the requirement for gutting the structure and replacing components becomes necessary.  Health hazards abound.

RESTORATION

Water damage can be deceptive. Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation. The detection of water in these areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters. Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage. This damage, at a minimum, will cause odors. Greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to the point where costly repairs are required. More than just removing excess water, certified restorers have the knowledge and equipment to further dry a home or facility (including substructure materials) completely back to pre-loss conditions. Through timely response and the careful monitoring of water damage, mold and other health issues can be prevented. If water damage has been present too long, mold will occur. Our IICRC-certified professionals have the training and experience to identify moisture sources, evaluate mold growth (visible or suspected), contain damage, remove contamination and dry materials to ensure that mold will not return Professional restoration occurs in three phase which confirm to the industry’s Water Damage Restoration Standard and Reference Guide, S500-2006 Containment:     First comes all those reasonable and prudent steps required to contain the damage and protect the occupants of the dwelling.  Containment, or “loss mitigation”, considerably reduces costs as well, regardless of whether or not insurance coverage exists. At the end of the containment portion, the restoration moves into coordination... Coordination:    No further work is performed until a job scope/estimate is completed, costs are calculated, and coordination with responsible parties is made.  Your questions are answered and insurance coverage is confirmed.  With proper coordination by conscientious restorers, there should never be surprises about who is responsible for payment.  After completing coordination, we move to... Completion:     Restoration technicians will take all the steps required to return the structure and contents to a pre-loss condition.  Communication and coordination is maintained with you and your insurance representative throughout the process.
