Understanding Water Damage

Understanding Water Damage

In {flooring|floors}, water typically spreads out and flows through the path of least resistance, {especially|particularly} toward substructures and lower floors. Porous materials, whether wood, sheetrock or other {building|construction} materials, will soak up the water, which {can|could} even travel upward. 

The resulting effects {can|may} include swelling, discoloration, broken adhesive bonds, delamination (flooring separation), warping and {general|basic} breakdown of {building|construction} materials that make up your {house|residence}. The more time that elapses before treatment, the greater the harm. Even if the water {evaporates|disappears} unassisted, it {can|may} {lead to|result in} damage to ceilings, walls and materials.

Sally Steamer is {an extremely|a very} reputable, licensed, insured and endorsed water damage {service provider|supplier}. {In addition to|Along with} our years of experience, our qualified technicians have completed advanced training in water mitigation, dehumidification systems, mold remediation and corrosion control. They also seek continuing education to learn about new {techniques|methods} and equipment to better serve you in your time of need.

The information in this literature is general in nature and {might|may} not {apply|be applicable} to your {precise|exact} needs. {However|But}, we hope it will help answer your questions and {aid|help} you in understanding the {procedures|processes} and processes n restoring your property. {It is|It’s} our {aim|goal} to restore your {house|home} as quickly and {efficiently|economically} as possible. The drying and {restoration|recovery} may require up to three stages before completion.

Phase 1. Emergency Service

Upon arrival, a {Statement|Record} of Authorization will {need|have} to be signed before work can {begin|start}. A Sally Steamer trained technician will {begin|start} by determining if your carpet is salvageable and {whether|if} the carpet can be dried in place. {If so|In that case}, {we’ll|we will} extract as much water as {you can|possible}.

High-velocity air movers and dehumidifiers will be putting to dry the carpet and sub-floor quickly. Equipment {has|needs} to be left {on |}for the {specified|designated} amount of time to ensure proper drying. The carpet {might|may} {need|want} to be treated to inhibit microbial growth. If the pad {cannot|can’t} be dried in place, {we’ll|we will} detach the {carpet|carpeting} from the tack strip and remove the wet padding to expedite the drying process. A pad sample will be taken back to our office to be matched and {ordered|arranged} for the re-installation. If your carpet is deemed un-salvageable, the {tech|technician} may advise removing both the {pad|mat} and {carpet|carpeting}.


{It’ll|It is going to} be necessary for us to have access to {your|a} {house|home} during business hours {throughout|during} the drying process {so as|in order} to properly monitor the temperature, humidity and our {equipment|gear}. Please {work with|use} our office {in|on} your preferred {way|means} of re-entry to your {house|home} so we can properly {monitor|track} the drying process.

Phase 2. Re-installation / Cleaning

When {carpet|carpeting} can be successfully restored, we {might|may} want to install new pad and reinstall the {carpet|carpeting}. Re-installation includes re-stretching, re-attaching the tack strip, seam repair, and threshold {fix|repair} {and/or|or} replacement. {After|Following} the re-installation, carpet is cleaned and deodorized.

{After|Following} the {carpet and pad|pad and carpet} can be successfully restored through in-place drying, the {carpet|carpeting} will still {need|have} to be cleaned and deodorized. In this {period|age}, any upholstery or other damaged furnishings will be cleaned. If {equipment|gear} is still {present|current}, the technician will remove it at this {time|moment}.

Phase 3. Structural Repairs

When appropriate, after the drying process is complete, structural damage is assessed and the repair phase can {begin|start}. At this {time|moment}, drywall, ceilings and floors will be {repaired|mended}. If the carpet {cannot|can’t} be salvaged, new carpet and pad will be installed. It {might|may} be appropriate to complete structural repairs {before|prior to} re-installation and cleaning.

After the builders futile attempt to have their construction cleaning company dry the basement for 4 days, we had to start from the beginning! First by removing the caulking that was sealing in the moisture from between the framing and the concrete, we then removed the moisture barriers and began to CLEAN then DRY the Structure, pay attention at the 3:30 mark to see what the flushing is all about! The water came through a open clean-out that was behind the vapor, buried in the insulation.
