3 Reasons to Call a Professional for Water Damage

Flooded basement? Overflowing sink or toilet? Pipe break in the crawl space? Regardless of the cause, water damage is more serious than you might think. Many homeowners may think it’s fine to just throw down some towels, turn on some fans and open the windows to let the place air out, but sometimes this isn’t enough. Here’s a look at why you need to call a restoration professional when you experience water or flood damage in your home or business:

Standards: Restoration professionals dry following the IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration. The way that we handle each case is dictated by the type of water damage. There are three categories of water damage, ranging from 1 to 3 – the higher the number, the more contaminated the water. The trained professionals at American Restoration Water & Fire LLC use the right equipment to get the job done right and follow proper protocol when doing it, regardless of the category of water, to ensure a successful outcome for each and every job.

Mold: If property isn’t dried properly, mold is going to grow. Growth can begin within 24 to 48 hours and further complicate any water damage situation.

Health: Mold growth has been linked to everything from allergic reactions to serious respiratory issues. And Category 2 and Category 3 water losses could be harboring harmful bacteria. You don’t want to take any risks when it comes to yours and your family’s health.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you can correctly dry your property on your own – call the professionals today to get the job done right the first time. For more information, contact American Restoration Water & Fire LLC.
