Water damage emergencies don’t happen every day, thankfully! But when they do happen, they are a nightmare! Residential and commercial properties are often affected by water. Pipes break or leak in walls without anybody being aware of the problem until the walls start to change color or become warped, major rain and snow storms cause basement flooding, and there are numerous ways that sewage problems create catastrophic water damage to different properties.
When a water damage situation occurs, it is important to contact a certified and insured professional that can help you determine the extent of the damage and what actions need to be taken to properly and safely clean up the mess. In Logan, Sierra Restoration is home to several professional water damage restoration technicians that are qualified and experienced in restoring different levels of water damaged properties to pre-loss condition.
Why Is A Professional So Important?
In this day, there are so many Do-It-Yourself guides available that it could be tempting to skip the hassle of dealing with your insurance company and relying on strangers to help you get your life back together. But, is it really worth it? When a water damage situation happens, there are significant steps that need to be taken. A professional water damage cleanup crew will immediately begin to assess the damage and determine how significant the water damage is, and if the water has created a mold problem.
Depending on the extent of the water damage, huge industry-sized equipment will need to be brought in to extract and dry the water damaged areas. This type of skill and equipment isn’t something that can be replaced with store-bought equipment or a few minutes of DIY reading. Professionals are trained by the IICRC in the most up-to-date and industry best processes to successfully remove any standing water, dry wet or damp areas before mold begins to grow, and start the remediation process. If any area has been affected by contaminated water, it will need to be cleaned and disinfected before the area is safe to live in.
Water damage professionals help you save time and money by making sure that every spot of water is removed or dried. There are areas in your property that nobody but a professional would suspect is affected. A professional will know because they are educated and trained to look for signs and symptoms of water damage. They are also experienced in the field and have seen major and minor water damage situations and know the in’s and out’s.
When it comes to properly cleaning and restoring your home after a water damage catastrophe, no amount of money you save from a DIY project will compare to the work of a professional.
