An intrusion of water into your home or business is a serious and traumatizing event. The actions you take are crucial in preventing further damage, protecting your health and keeping you safe. To do this, you must take some very important steps, which are listed below.
First, among these is calling sparkling clean Restoration. You need a restoration company that will arrive immediately and is certified by the IICRC as water restoration professionals. Time is of the essence when dealing with standing water and ineffective restoration has many consequences, including mold, mildew, possible health effects and unnecessary added expense.
Many homeowners do not realize the degree in which water can penetrate into structural cavities and parts, leaving trapped pockets of water. Therefore, they attempt to remove the water with a wet vac and use a fan to dry, only to find out later the damage the trapped water created. Water damage restoration can be accomplished very quickly and the cost associated with it is relatively low, especially when compared to the cost of mold remediation if the dry out is not done properly.
After following the steps below, it is time to call your insurance claims representative. Do not wait for them to arrive to evaluate before beginning the mitigation process. By then, enough time could have lapsed for microorganisms to grow and amplify, which may not be covered by insurance. Your insurance company expects you to begin loss mitigation, which is as they define “reasonable and prudent measures designed to preserve, protect, and secure property from further damage” including mold growth. You may want to document and take pictures of the damage for the insurance claim, before any soaked items are disposed of.
Whether your loss is from a pipe burst, toilet overflow, sewage back-up, or a major flood, Sparkling Clean has the equipment, and certified skilled professionals to arrive on the scene fast to restore your life and peace of mind.
We use the latest technology to determine moisture, such as our thermal imaging camera and video borescopes, in addition to our meters. Plus, for flooded areas we have “Flood Pumpers”. This powerful piece of equipment can pump out 300 + gallons per minute!
Water damage clean up can be billed directly to your insurance company without any cost directly to you other than your deductible. We use the billing software all insurance companies use and work with all the major insurance companies. Sparkling Clean will restore your home or business to a pre-loss condition quickly, efficiently, and to your satisfaction!
