WATER MITIGATION, STRUCTURAL DRYING & RESTORATION
Water damage is the most common cause of property damage. It can intrude into your home or business due to natural disasters (like a heavy rainstorm). It can also invade via man-made causes, such as faulty plumbing or roofing. Either way, the effects of water damage on a home or business can be devastating. Unmitigated flooding can cause wood rot, rust, mold, and other types of property destruction, so time is of the essence. When you require water damage repair, call O.C. Home Services right away. Our expert team will remedy the problem and restore your property to its pre-loss condition.
Simple Steps to Follow
You can take some of these simple steps below to help prevent further damage before a technician arrives:
Turn off the water supply. Stop the source of the flood to keep the damage from spreading – most sources of water in your home or business have shut-off valves that can be turned off. If the source of water can’t be turned off ask us to bring one of our plumbers as well.
Move items on the floor away from the wet area. Water travels rapidly through carpeted rooms – areas that aren’t wet now could have water under them in a very short period of time.
Reduce Damage to furniture and carpet. Place folded aluminum foil or small squares of plastic under the legs of wooden furniture resting on your wet carpets. Use plastic bags or plastic lids under the legs of wooden furniture to keep water from soaking into and ruining the furniture, and to keep the stain in the wood from running into and ruining the carpet.
Upon our arrival, our IICRC certified water damage technicians assess the damage. Once the damage is evaluated, the team begins the recovery process. O.C. Home Services offers comprehensive water damage removal services, insurance coordination and complete restoration / put back services. Our team utilizes psychrometric science to thoroughly document and expedite the drying process. O.C. Home Services use high capacity air movers to create a controlled “whirlwind”, while the low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers remove the evaporated moisture from the air caused by the air movement. This system allows us to save building materials, and ensures that the property is dried completely to prevent any subsequent issues which would have occurred without professional restoration.
