In many circumstances, water damage restoration projects begin on an emergency basis. Most of the time we look at water damage as something so minor that we just figure if we clean it up we can count the job as being complete. BUT so untrue in many cases. See water is something that will sit on something and if not dealt with properly would create mold and some other things that can be harmful to your health. Once you see water start to leak you have to make plans on getting it cleaned up properly or the leak stopped where the water is coming from. Often we have water coming into our basement and we dont understand where it is coming from and we just clean it up and let it go. But what we dont know is the water is causing mold to accumulate around or in the basement because we have yet to treat it.
It is important to contact a plumber and then a water professional to assist in the clean up and maintenance of your water concerns. Many of us dont have water insurance and this will require us to have to pay out of pocket for cleanups and repairs, so it may be in your best interest to look into water insurance on the dwelling. At least one of the technicians who respond should have training, knowledge, experience and a set of core skills relevant to water damage restoration. Biological containment are not always visible to the naked eye and usually require the use of a microscope to quantify and identify the nature nature of the contamination.
