Five FAQs Dublin Residents Ask About Water Removal
As a Dublin resident faced with water damage, knowing more about the causes, what to do, how to overcome the problems and many more can help avert the crisis. To help you with these, here are the top five FAQs commercial property and homeowners have about water removal.
What are the causes of water damage?
As water removal experts in Dublin, we have identified the following causes of water damage: pipe leak, pipe burst, faulty appliance or leaking roof. If you are a commercial property owner, water can also infiltrate your business. Causes include poor drainage, roof leaks, appliance malfunction or pipe bursts.
What are the effects of water infiltration?
When water comes into contact with your walls and floor, absorption occurs making the structure damp. This promotes mold growth. If left unchecked, a colony of mold grows behind the wall. If your home has hardwood floors, they are likely to warp and buckle too. Also, your carpets are likely to delaminate due to the water.
What should I do if water infiltrates my home or business?
The first step is to contact your insurance adjuster. Next, take a few pictures which act as evidence and present them to the insurance adjuster. Do not attempt to remove or move anything. Finally, call our water removal specialists.
Should I attempt to remove the water?
Mopping up a small puddle of water made by your faulty appliance or leaky pipe is okay. If the problem is extensive, leave it to SERVPRO water removal experts. As a property owner, you lack hygrometers and other equipment to detect moisture in your walls, floors, and ceiling. Also, you lack the knowledge our experts have to detect the source of the problem and presence of mold.
Should I move out of my home or close my business during water restoration?
Yes, we recommend you move or close your business until your property is dry and safe. Doing so also eliminates the chances of coming into contact with the water and mold. That is not all. The equipment we use can be noisy as it dries your home or business.
