Minor Storm Damage Needs Water Restoration Work

Our experience has shown that preventing extensive damage to houses in Raleigh is not only possible, but it is also the most cost-effective approach. Water restoration services are what your home needs after mitigation of the harmful effects of storm damage and flooding.

Homeowners in Raleigh benefit from water restoration work done by the same company performing the extraction, drying, and mitigation phases after a torrential storm. While these different stages can be completely separated, combining them where possible, or having them overlap, makes the entire restoration process faster and more economical.

While slight damage or small, isolated areas where rain formed indoor puddles might seem easy enough to mop up and forget, it takes little effort to call for a professional inspection and assessment.

Small amounts of rainwater can cause damage, such as:

• Inside the walls and under and around windows,

• Wood floors and sub-floors under carpeting, and

• Electrical components.

Over time, window frames can develop cracks and crevices that allow water to seep inside. The moisture then causes additional deterioration inside, eventually affecting larger portions of the interior area of the wall. The results of such situations can include soft, crumbling walls, mold, discoloration of the wall, and odors.

The horizontal nature of your floors means water can spread out and get into numerous spaces. Hardwood flooring either falls apart (parquet floors) or warps (cupping and crowning). We can utilize drying mats with negative air pressure (vacuum) to suck up water and moisture from the joints. Splintering can also happen. Rainwater that seeps into porous particle boards can become rounded and swollen with water. These areas eventually dry out and disintegrate, leaving behind tiny pieces of the material--almost like sawdust.

Wiring runs through the voids of walls in a house, and saturated drywall can leave metal parts corroded or worse. Any cracked or damaged cables can endanger occupants. Let our electrical experts handle this for you. We can protect your house from fire and your family from potential shock hazards.
