Water Damage Restoration for Sewer Backups in Macomb MI
Water Damage from a sewer backup is the most damaging water that can infiltrate your home. When sewer drains backup the water is pathogenic (disease causing) and time is of the essence. Water must be removed as soon as possible to keep the infectious causing germs at bay. The classification of sewer water is (category 3) meaning it is thriving with health threatening germs and creates the worst damage to property. Sewer water sometimes can appear clear and may not be discolored or smell, however, it is always pathogenic necessitating thorough cleanup. Action Extraction specializes in flood restoration of high risk environments and gives strict adherence to the IICRC Standards for sewer backup cleaning.
Water Damage Cleanup for Sump Pump Flooding in Macomb MI
One of the most common causes of flooding in Macomb MI is when sump pumps fail. When they do ground water can completely infiltrate all the basement environment creating a major flood damage project. Ground water is alive with microorganisms, fungi, bacteria and molds. These microorganisms rapidly amplify and pose a threat to human health if not serviced correctly. The necessary steps include water removal and structural drying of all building materials that have become wet. Homeowners insurance may or may not cover this type of water damage emergency. Call Action Extraction and we can evaluate if you have this particular coverage.
Water Damage from a Fresh Water Source
Water Damage from a fresh water source such as a burst hot water heater, broken pipe or refrigerator leak is usually covered under a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. Although fresh water does not immediately create a threat to human health, it is very damaging to building materials and if not professionally serviced may develop into mold if water removal and humidity control are not dealt with in 48 hours. Flood damage from fresh water also known as (category 1) is the least destructive, however after 3 days of high humidity will become infested with microorganisms.
Common Questions About Water Damage
My basement has water in it, what should I do?
When a Macomb MI basement is found to have water on the carpet or tile it becomes an instant stress maker. Several important first steps to minimize water damage in the home are as follows. Determine if water has come into contact with any of the electrical wiring or receptacles in the home. If water has made it’s way to any electrical call a professional to secure the environment. We provide a master electrician for such water damage emergencies and we will thoroughly evaluate all electrical for exposure. The second step is to determine the source of water to stop further damage. This process is usually easy when done in a systematic approach. Check sump pumps to see if the water is at the top or higher than usual. Floor drains should be evaluated for signs of a sewer backup. Listen carefully for any running water that could be a sign of a burst water line, hot water heater rupture or malfunctioning appliance. If water is running try to locate the water shut off in the home and turn water off.
My sump pump has stopped working and my basement is flooded with water, should I call a water restoration company or a plumber?
We never recommend calling a plumber first because most plumbers are not willing to work in a flooded environment where there is standing water until it has been removed. Once a plumber replaces the pump you still have wet carpet and materials requiring water damage cleanup. Plumbers do not possess the required drying equipment to restore water damaged environments or the necessary experience and skill. Call us first if your sump pump has failed and your basement has water damage. We manage every step of the restoration process from replacing your old system with a new pump to immediately beginning the water damage cleanup.
If my basement floods and my floor drains remove water after water enters my home, do I still need a professional water restoration company?
When floor drains eventually remove water from your basement you will still definitely need a professional water restoration company to remove moisture from all the wet building materials that may have absorbed water. When water comes into contact with cement, drywall, wood substrates, carpet / pad you have an ideal environment for mold and microbial contamination. High humidity needs to be removed from the air and water must be removed from the wet materials if mold is to be avoided and your basement kept free from pungent smells.
Water has entered my basement and my basement smells, how long till I get water damage or mold?
As long as the water is present it continues to damage the home because water invades most materials forcing them to remain wet. Any water left in materials must be completely removed in less than 48-72 hours to eliminate the potential for mold to form. Materials like; wet carpet, carpet pad, wood, tile and drywall, stay wet for days creating a very inviting environment for mold and strong offensive smells. If your home has water damage and wet materials and your carpet is smelling, it is very likely you have microbial amplification and anti-fungal agents are needing to be applied.
What is the difference between flooding and water damage, my basement has flooded, but do I actually have water damage?
Not exactly. Flooding is a one time occurrence that happens in an area of the home (usually a basement) where water from various sources; sewer, sump, burst pipe, etc. enters the home. This event immediately creates a flooded environment, however unless the water is sewer water, there is not necessarily water damage, yet. As water remains in materials keeping them wet, then water damage occurs. 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.
