Water Damage Spokane

Every year, thousands of Spokane homeowners suffer the misfortune of a water-related accident. Water incidents come in varying degrees and the action you need to take is usually informed by the intensity of the incident. In all cases however, speed is of essence. Unless fast action is taken, a major incident could deteriorate to become dangerous and life-threatening.

Causes of water damage and remedial actions – Water incidents are classified in three broad categories and this categorization also determines the kind of remedial action necessary. The first category involves damage caused by water from a clean source. Such sources include broken pipes that supply clean water or a broken down toilet tank.

The second category involves water that has been used or water that contains detergents. An incident involving water from the kitchen, the dishwasher and overflowing urine would therefore be categorized here.

The third category covers water from other unsafe sources that could easily cause diseases or even fatalities. In this group therefore would be water from a flooded river, water mixed with sewage as well as stagnant water that could have started to grow bacteria. Regardless of the source of the water causing damage, the first thing you need to do as a homeowner is to lessen the effect of the damage by removing all the contaminated materials from the house as soon as you can. After this, removal of the water can begin. When this happens you’ll need to find a Spokane Water Restoration Expert.

Precautions to take before commencing water removal – If your house has been flooded, for instance, there are other dangers that need to taken into account. Since you might not know the effect of the water on your household appliances, it is recommended that you do not switch on the TV or other electronic appliances. If there has been a leak in the roof and the ceiling is sagging, it is advisable to stay out of the house until professional help arrives. Before attempting to remove water, it is usually advisable to think about your own safety and that of the other residents of your home and if you do not feel confident to perform the task, evacuate and wait for help.

Water removal and restoration – Professional Spokane water restoration firms have the equipment necessary to not only remove the water adequately and safely but also to restore the home to the condition it was in before the water incident. Restoration begins with the removal of water and this should done as quickly as possible as water that remains standing in the home for a long time easily encourage the growth of bacteria and mold and these could have far-reaching health consequences. After water removal, the affected areas of the home have to be dried and dehumidified. The air in the home needs to be sanitized by the use of air scrubbers and all the items that came in contact with the unsanitary water need to be cleaned to remove any mold or bacteria. If the floor was flooded, for instance, the carpets will need antimicrobial treatment. Items of clothing and seat cushions should be given similar treatment.

Damages to the structure – A major water incident such as a flood could damage the structure of the home. After a storm or a hurricane, some homes are damaged so extensively that they might require major reconstruction works. Water restoration after such an incident requires professional attention since it might call for the replacement of roofs and walls. Where walls have to be replaced, it is important to remember that those performing the task could be exposed to asbestos and lead poisoning especially if the home was built in the 1970s or earlier.

Filing insurance claims – A water incident can turn the homeowner’s life upside down and more stress might be on the way if you don’t know how to deal with your insurance company. It is impossible to tell when you might suffer such a misfortune and one way to ensure that you do not get into trouble with your insurance company is by taking a complete inventory of your home – that way, you can show your insurer what was damaged by the water.

When disaster strikes and before you start cleaning up and repairing, it is recommended that you document the damage by taking pictures of all the items that have been affected. A comparison of your pictures with those taken by insurance loss adjuster could help you get compensated much more quickly than would have been the case if you had nothing to show. A severe water incident can be extremely traumatizing and it is important to seek professional help at the earliest possible time. Before taking any action after water damage, it is important to ensure that you are not making a bad situation worse by exposing yourself or the other members of your home to risk.  If you live in Spokane and need a Water Restoration Expert give us a call.
