There are two words that all property owners dread hearing and those are: plumbing emergency. If your HVAC system is the lungs of a home or office, then plumbing is the circulatory system. Most people use plumbing every day, and it can take many forms, bringing hot and cold potable water on demand, and flushing away unwanted waste materials. We use plumbing when we perform all sorts of everyday tasks, from making coffee, to taking a shower, to washing our vehicles. Businesses use water to heat or cool and manufacture all sorts of things. The point is, we count on it, and we sometimes take our plumbing for granted—right up until it stops working. An emergency plumbing event can take many forms, from burst pipes, sewage backup, leaks and clogs and stopped-up drains, and no matter what form it takes, the property owner will be the one faced with serious interruptions in their daily life. No matter what the severity of your plumbing emergency, the experts at DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to make sure that you don’t have to wait for help. Especially in an event that leads to saturation, every passing minute can further the damage and make restoration that much harder and more expensive.
Emergency plumbing or drain problems often seem to crop up at the worst possible moment—during the holidays or special occasions when you have guests. If you see any signs of a backed-up toilet or drain, don’t hesitate to contact a service professional at DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services and get that dealt with quickly and thoroughly, before it gets any worse. No plumbing problem gets better on its own. At DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services we understand how time-sensitive plumbing issues can be, and how suddenly they can crop up to ruin the occasion. Don’t let it!
When dealing with floods caused by burst pipes, you can find yourself facing a heavy amount of water introduced into your home or office in a relatively short time—and the effects can be devastating. The most crucial factor leading to a full recovery is contacting a professional restoration service as quickly as possible. Of all the various types of damage your property can sustain, water damage is the most common, affecting 98% of property owners at some point in their lives. Water can penetrate into structural cavities, creating pockets of saturation that can cause ongoing damage and encourage the growth of mold, mildew, and fungi. Mold can only grow in an environment that has above 45% humidity, but it can appear as quickly as 48 hours after the initial saturation of an area—especially if that area has poor air circulation and very little light. At a minimum, water damage causes odors, but it can also cause greater damage as certain surfaces and materials can swell, shrink, split, discolor, or delaminate. All of this can happen regardless of the quality of the water. At DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services we have the equipment and training necessary to remove the excess water and quickly desaturate the area using professional-grade dehumidifiers.
If clean water could still turn your home into a saturated mess, how much worse would the situation be if the water seeping into your home or business qualified as Category 3, or “black water” or, more simply, sewage? Category 3 water is considered highly contaminated and unsafe to be around. Category 3 water can come from a variety of sources: sewage from an overflowing toilet or bad plumbing, rising flood water from streams and rivers, and even ground surface water. When it comes to the safe and timely removal of contaminated water, the IICRC certified restorers at DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services have the knowledge and experience to dry and restore your facility back to its original pre-loss condition.
Any surface that comes into contact with contaminated water is potentially hazardous, especially those porous surfaces like wood, certain laminates, or even ceramic tile can catch and hold dangerous biohazardous agents. Though it may be tempting to splash some bleach on these surfaces and call it good, any surface that has been exposed to Category 3 water should be thoroughly decontaminated by a professional at DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services to make sure that no threat remains. Improperly handled sewage spills can lead to serious health risks, especially for the elderly, small children, and those with compromised immune systems. Sewage can contain a variety of disease-causing bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites. Anyone who treats Category 3 sewage contamination is required to have updated vaccinations, including one for Hepatitis B. Any situation where the water source is unknown, or suspected of a Category 3 contamination should be considered extremely hazardous and should not be approached by anyone who has not been properly trained. Proper equipment is also important.
