Water Damage Restoration
Your home is designed to protect you from the elements. It is constructed to shelter you from rain, snow, sleet, hail, hurricanes and intense heat and cold. Unlike other mammals, the human body is not equipped to protect itself from acute weather conditions. This is why our earliest ancestors constructed shelter from their natural environments immediately. We have all types of delicate systems installed within our homes to keep us comfortably protected. When water penetrates our abode, everything we own and hold dear is at risk. Round Rock Water Damage Restoration steps in when matters beyond your control have taken over. We are able to restore your home beyond its original glory.
Once we receive the call that you’re experiencing water damage, our Receptionist will ask you a series of questions to determine the level of seriousness, the equipment and manpower necessary for the job. We have a guaranteed arrival time of 30-45 minutes. If possible, he will guide you over the phone how to stop the leak yourself until we arrive. The goal is to mitigate future damage. Upon arrival, we will ask you to take us immediately to the source of the leak. Before conducting a thorough evaluation, stopping the leak is of primary importance. Once the home is no longer in present danger, we can begin an in-depth consultation.
Your Personal Property
The reality is that we work hard for the things we own. For many of us it has taken a lifetime to acquire quality possessions. Some items are irreplaceable and have sentimental value. If you’ve been fortunate enough to inherit valuable items from family members, you will want to preserve them. If the damage is not significant, we will keep your personal property within the home, but relocate them to another area of your abode so that we can do a thorough restoration. For items that have suffered severe damage, we will either discard them or store them in a climate controlled facility for refurbishment.
The Drying Effect
Unless we have to reconstruct your home, the drying process is the biggest factor in restoring your home from water damage. We want to make certain that your home is secured against future damage. There are several tools we use to dry your home completely. Heavy duty dryers, wet vacuums, steam vacuums, blowers, dehumidifiers, heat injectors and high volume air movers are utilized to get your home to homeostasis. This will also stave off any mold and allow you to breathe easy without the risk of infection from fungi and other contaminants. Our contractors will typically remove your molding and dry under the flooring using a high volume air mover.
Drying and disinfecting go hand in hand. This disinfectant is applied on the walls, flooring, cracks, crevices, vents, ducts, in your attic, basement and everywhere the water may have traveled. These chemical compounds attack the spores underneath the surface. You don’t have to worry about chemical reactions because a dedicated restoration specialist will wipe down every surface sprayed. If you have any particular allergies, please let us know before we start. We will go over the chemicals used and inquire whether you’d prefer using a more ecologically friendly compound.
