Common Water Damage Insurance Questions?
Restorex can help you with many different water restoration services in Indianapolis Indiana.
We also work with many reputable licensed plumbers in Indianapolis if you need a referral to help with a plumbing issue that has caused significant water damage.
Indianapolis Indiana, can be prone to flooding because of the heavy rainfalls in the spring and fall. If it rains more than 2 inches in an hour, many basements begin experiencing flooding because the sump pump systems cannot keep up with the amount of water pressure on the basement foundation walls.
Restorex specializes in water damage cleanups in basements. A lot of residential homes in Indianapolis have finished basements that include carpet, pad, drywall, baseboards, and cabinets.
When a sump pump systems back up the entire basement can have up to 1 to 2 inches of standing water which affects all of these building materials. If the water damage is not properly cleaned up, then there is the potential of secondary damage including rot, decay and mold.
Indianapolis can also experience very cold winters which can cause burst pipes. When the outside temperatures decrease below freezing, 32 Degrees Fahrenheit, there is the opportunity for water supply lines to freeze. When the water pipes freeze they will expand causing the pipe to burst. Then once the frozen water thaws out the water will begin to flow causing lots of water damage.
The emergency services we can provide for water damage cleanups include:
The initial phase of any water restoration job is to remove any standing water in the property. We use a variety of pumps and vacuums to remove the water from carpet, pad, concrete floors, basements and crawl spaces.
After the standing water is removed, it is necessary to dry the building materials that were wet from the water damage. If the building materials are not dried back to their original moisture content, then there is the potential for mold growth to occur.
In any water damage property, there are some building materials that will not dry out or it is not cost effective to dry them out. During this phase we will determine what should be removed in order to make the drying process quicker.
Examples of Building materials that can be removed are carpet and pad, laminate click lock flooring, vinyl flooring, solid hardwood flooring, drywall, insulation, cabinets and baseboards. Every property is different and has unique reasons for determining what is removed before beginning the dryout.
During the drying phase, we will bring in dehumidifiers, fans and different types of heaters to remove the remaining water out of the building. This process can last between 3 to 5 days. If a structure has been wet for a really long time, then it may take up to 7 days to return the building to its original moisture content.
After the building is dried out, we can begin to make the necessary water damage repairs. We are able to repair a property from start to finish.
