Why Hire a Restoration Company in Charlotte?

3/26/2018 (Permalink)

Got water damage?

A Charlotte restoration company is essential for repairing your home or business when it is affected by a flood, storm or plumbing disaster. Invading water is a destructive force for a structure, especially when the moisture contains contamination such as waste or chemicals. The moisture entering a building cause more destruction the longer it remains, so it is vital to call a professional remediation company as soon as possible. 

Why is a Water Damage Restoration Company Hired for These Problems?

The overflow from sewer lines and rivers contain life-threatening contaminants that people should avoid. Some of the contaminants from floods include organic waste from livestock, petroleum products or fertilizers. All of these contaminants and floodwater create the perfect environment for deadly microbes such as fungi, viruses and bacteria. In addition, flooding conditions make it easier for parasites and wildlife to invade a building, creating an additional danger. Fatal injuries due to structural problems, wet electrical wiring and fire are also a possibility for anyone entering a flooded building. 

The technicians working for water restoration companies understand the environmental problems inside a flooded building and have the equipment and training to eliminate hazardous threats. Because mold begins to grow on moist materials within 48-hours, it is essential to contact a remediation company with the technicians and tools to dry and clean surfaces quickly. 

How Do Water Damage Restoration Companies Perform Repairs?

Water restoration companies follow a standard remediation process that includes removing large items from a building to assess the damage. Items such as insulation, baseboards and carpeting are typically beyond repair and are removed for disposal. Organic materials, including drywall and paneling are often also removed due to mold growth that constitutes a health risk. 

After standing water is removed with sump pumps, technicians can install dehumidifier and fan systems to reduce humidity and dry materials. Restoration technicians will monitor humidity levels with moisture meters to ensure items dry quickly to avoid additional mold growth. 

The drying process requires several days to complete with technicians immediately beginning a cleanup process to return a building to its original condition. After a building is dried and cleaned completely, it is possible to rebuild interior structures with new drywall, insulation and baseboards. 

The Charlotte water damage company’s goal is to have technicians’ complete repairs as fast as possible to enable a customer to return to a safe building and normal life.
