Frequently Asked Questions Related to Water Damage
My Basement has just flooded what should I do?
When a Roseville MI basement takes on water making carpet wet or even worse, wet VCT tile wet, it can certainly be a stress maker. Here are some good first steps to take to reduce the water damage to your home and secure safety. Number 1) Be certain no electrical has come into contact with any water. Look carefully at all receptacles and electrical cords to see if water has come into contact before touching anything. Water is a good conductor of electricity and carelessly touching things before making sure all is safe is a must. Action Extraction has licensed electricians that are on call for such water damage emergencies to test for exposure to water.
Number 2) Look for the source of water intrusion. Sometimes this is self evident such as a toilet overflowing, other times it can be difficult. If you have a sump pump look to see if the water is to the top and it is not running. Look at the floor drains to see if the drain is backing up. Listen for any running water that could be suggestive of a burst water line, hot water heater or ruptured or malfunctioning appliance. If water is heard running, try to locate the main shut off and turn water off immediately.
My sump pump has failed and my basement is filled with water, should I call a water restoration company or a plumber?
Calling a plumber first is not recommended. If there exist standing water often they require for it’s removal first. If they will work in such an environment, once the pump is replaced you still have a wet basement requiring water damage cleanup. Plumbers do not possess the necessary equipment, certification or expertise to restore water damaged homes. Calling us first when your sump pump has failed resulting in water damage is a better option because we are a full service water restoration company and we can replace your old system with a new pump and then immediately begin the water damage cleanup.
If my basement drains naturally through the floor drains after it floods , do I still need a professional water restoration company?
In time some clogged floor drains will eventually remove the water from your basement that may have resulted from flooding. If this occurs you will still most definitely need professional water restoration service to at the minimum evaluate for moisture in absorbent materials. When water absorbs into cement, wood substrates, drywall, carpet or pad you have the perfect environment for mold, microbes and fungi. Humidity levels should not exceed certain standards for to long as well and air can become heavy with moisture and secondary moisture damage can happen.
Water has entered my basement and smells, how long till I get water damage or mold?
As long as there is the presence of water, the threat for mold remains and water continues to damage the home environment. The presence of smells is often indicative of a problem, namely microbial growth. Unless water is completely removed from materials like; wet carpet, carpet pad, wood, tile and drywall, the potential for mold is present. High moisture content in the home creates very favorable circumstances for mold and pungent odors. If your home has experienced water damage and your carpet is smelling, it is an evidence that water was in it for several days and anti-microbial specialty agents are required.
What is the difference between flooding and water damage, my basement has flooded, but do I actually have water damage?
Not exactly. Flooding is an event that takes place in an area of the home (most often a basement) when water from various sources; sewer, sump, burst pipe, etc. comes into the home. Upon it’s entrance into your home it immediately creates flooding, however unless the water is from the sewer you should not yet have water damage . Flooded environments can be dried where there is no water damage as a result if caught in time and dried properly. Wet carpet, wet padding, wet drywall and other materials that are absorbent can still be safely dried in a timely fashion leaving no visual damage. If the water that has flooded your basement or home is sewer, water damage is immediate and materials can not be safely restored.
Water damage by definition is a permanent compromise in appearance or integrity of materials that were once wet and have become dry. Sewer water like fire changes both the looks and the integrity of everything it touches. We are very experienced in evaluating items to determine if they have become water damaged and how to document damages for the insurance companies.
I have a frozen pipe in my Roseville home, what should I do?
If any of your water pipes in Roseville MI have frozen due to extremely cold temperatures, you must act strategically to avoid a water damage emergency. 1) Locate the water shut off and turn your water off. 2) Only after turning water off, you can slowly thaw the frozen water pipe with extra heat from a space heater or hair dryer. Once ice has been melted have a plumber make the necessary repair and insulate the pipe. If you have discovered a frozen pipe that has already burst and created water damage, call us immediately. 1-800-713-4333
Experience Can Be the Difference Between Success or Failure
Over the last few years there have been an increasing number of water restoration companies that have emerged, many not even 5 years in business. Don’t be fooled by a smooth talker or polished presentation; ask for credentials such as certification, insurance, and referrals. We have had several companies brought to our attention that claim the home environment was dry and where mold began to thrive due to continued moisture in materials.
Action Extraction is not a new upstart company trying to make water damage restoration a business. We have been a leader in restoration and are known by the insurance industry as well as our competition as a company that stands out from the rest for their standard of excellence in customer service. Additionally we have a US Patent on the worlds fastest drying product,”Insta Duct Systems“, that dries quicker and at less expense.
Water Damage Restoration Requires the Best in Equipment for Success
When a service company is called out for emergency water damage service you don’t really know what you are in for till they show up. Some homeowners are disenchanted when an old rust bucket of a vehicle pulls in with disheveled looking employees that pull out old out dated equipment.
Such a picture may be fine for the plumbing industry or a lawn service company, but not a water damage restoration company. The success of the project is predicated on 2 indispensable requirements. 1) Knowledge and experience, 2) The latest equipment.
We use the finest and most “state of the art” equipment available as well as our US Patented Insta Duct Systems to provide homeowners the best in water damage cleanup.
Water Damage Cleanup in Roseville is Common
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city of Roseville has a total area of 9.86 square miles and only 0.03 square miles of it are water. That is until it rains. The homes in Roseville are more susceptible to a sewer backup than areas such as Sterling Heights or Macomb MI when it rains heavy. The reason is because the drain systems that were used when most of these homes were built were made with clay pipe that has proven over time to become compromised. Roots from trees can break through the clay walls over time and block the natural tendency of the water to drain away from the home and backup instead.
Action Extraction has served the needs of homeowners in Roseville who have experienced water damage for many years. We are proud to serve this community and have guided many homeowners after cleanup to improve the likelihood of avoiding a water damage occurrence in the future.
Several Proven Steps to Minimize Your Chances of Experiencing Water Damage.
1) Turn your water off when leaving on vacation. Over 20% of the water damage projects we receive in Roseville MI. are from homes left with the water not shut off. When water is allowed on and a supply line breaks or a hot water heater burst your water will not stop running until the water damage disaster is discovered.
2) Make sure the temperature is maintained in the winter. Sometimes when people go on vacation in the winter they turn their temperature down to much. 60 degrees is good, however 40 – 50 is to low if temperatures outside drop well below freezing.
3) Change all water supply lines in your home to stainless steel braided. Many water damage moments occur from a faulty plastic supply line. Plastic water supply lines are not very durable and often burst creating horrendous water damage costing thousands. They are easy to change over and can be purchased at any hardware store.
4) Get a battery backup sump pump on your sump well. If your home has a sump pump that manages the water table around your Roseville MI. home by channeling it away, you need a battery powered backup. If your electricity goes out for any length of time or if your sump pump fails, water is sure to inundate your home and threaten any finished basement with water damage.
