Water Damage Repair San Francisco
Water & Fire Damage Restoration In The Bay Area
A number of different circumstances can cause water damage at your home, especially in the rainy seasons in San Francisco County. Water damage can be caused by floods, water pipes breaking, or even just a leaky roof. Whether your home has a little water damage or a lot, you need to have it taken care of as soon as possible. Depending on where the water came from, it may contain dangerous toxins or chemicals, possibly even sewage. Even if the water is clean, it can encourage the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria, and fungi, all of which can be hazardous to your health. Untreated water damage can warp wood and corrode metal, causing long-term damage to your home and your valuables.
The first step in Restoration 9-1-1′s water damage restoration process is to thoroughly inspect the affected areas to determine exactly what kind of water leakage has occurred and what damage it has caused. Using the industry’s most sensitive moisture sensors, we can detect water that has seeped through walls and studs into other parts of your home to understand the full extent of the water damage to your structure. During this process, we also take a careful inventory of the area to determine how much damage the water has caused to your furniture, electronics, and other valuables. Not only can we recommend highly skilled technicians to repair and restore these damaged items, but we can also provide certified inventories to your insurer for those items that need to be replaced. Once we understand the full extent of the damage, we also know what kinds of additional precautions to take if the water is contaminated with chemicals or sewage.
After we determine the extent of the damage, we immediately begin the process of water repair. We start with a combination of industrial-strength fans and air movers, and specialized dehumidifiers, which leech water and moisture out of your walls, floors, frames, and carpets. Not only does this process reverse the water seeping into your home and possessions, it can also dry out important documents that may have been damaged in the flood. The dehumidification processes we use stops the growth of harmful mold, mildew, and bacteria. To further aid the San Francisco Water Damage Repair process, we use powerful sterilization chemicals to kill harmful mold, mildew, and bacteria that have already begun to grow. If your home was damaged by a sewer backup or other sewage-related disaster, we completely isolate and thoroughly sanitize the entire area to protect your family from dangerous diseases and ailments that exposure to raw sewage can create.
Once the drying has begun, we remove damaged walls, studs, and floorboards that have been structurally compromised by the water damage.
