Causes of Water Damage
Water damage can strike at any time. Experts warn Alpharetta is prone to flash floods, especially near streams and creeks. You can look at FEMA floodplain maps and find out if your home or business is at risk here.
However, floods aren’t the only causes of water damage in homes. Cracked plumbing, rain buildup in crawlspaces, and broken appliances like washing machines can cause lasting damage to your home.
When to Call Restoration Experts
Whenever large quantities of water come into contact with flooring, walls, or furniture, you should call restoration experts like Capital Restoration. Letting water sit can cause major structural damage as well as allow mold to build up.
The National Capital Poison Center says mold exposure has been linked with respiratory conditions including coughing, wheezing, asthma, and hay fever. These conditions can be even worse for people who have mold allergies.
Capital Restoration’s experts can identify water damage, even in areas where it is hard to spot. We use the latest technology to find water in walls and under flooring.
Types of Water Damage
Category 1: Water that is not contaminated and poses no threat to humans, called “clean water.” This includes most appliance leaks and water supply lines.
Category 2: Known as “grey water,” this water comes from a source with chemical, biological, or physical contaminants. This includes dishwashers and washing machines.
Category 3: This is unsanitary “black water” that affects the indoor environment and can cause severe reactions if humans come in contact with it. Includes sewage, seawater, water from rivers or streams, and standing water.
The Water Damage Restoration Process
Floods, plumbing breaks, and sewage spills aren’t an everyday thing for most people. They are for us here at Capital Restoration. We can walk you through the daunting task of restoring your home or business after a major water event. While no two water damage cases are exactly the same, here are the steps you can generally expect.
You notice damage: Many cases involve obvious water: a pipe bursts, covering your kitchen floor in water. Maybe your home floods after heavy rain. Sometimes, however, damage isn’t as obvious. You may notice a discolored spot on the ceiling or a strong smell coming from behind the wall. In all of the above situations, it’s time to call Capital.
Expert Site Survey: One of our technicians will survey your home or business to see the extent of the damage. We use moisture detection devices to pinpoint water built up under floors and between walls.
Water and material removal: Our team will use water extraction equipment to pull built up water from deep beneath carpets and hardwood floors. In some instances, building materials are damaged beyond salvaging. In these cases, we remove them.
Drying: We clean and dry all contents damaged by the flood, including documents. Carpets, floors, furniture, and building materials are cleaned and dried where they stand in the home when possible.
Damage Repairs: As a licensed general contractor, Capital Restoration can handle all necessary construction jobs. We save you the hassle of finding a second company to complete your restoration project.
