The Flood Co., a Utah based company, would like to make South Jordan residents aware of the company’s water damage repair services. Water damage is not only caused by full scale floods, it is possible for a home to sustain damage due to accidents, leaks, or appliance malfunctions. When one’s home is damaged by water, it is important to get professional help immediately. The Flood Co. has the experience and equipment needed to deal with any water damage restoration case they may encounter.
“Get help with water damage whenever there is an accident, a leak or an appliance problem that gets anything wet in your home,” says The Flood Co. “It doesn’t have to be visibly wet to lead to serious damage. If wood or other organic materials are at 17% moisture content or above, they are at risk of growing mold. Mold can grow if they stay wet for more than a few days. Once this occurs, the same drying options are not available, and more demolition is necessary. Whenever you have a water damage event, have it checked out to avoid more serious repercussions.”
Water damage can be caused by any of a number of things. As The Flood Co. says, “If you have never had your home flood, there are several ways that this can take place. Most people think of natural causes of flooding, such as from a rainstorm, yet most flooding occurs from sources within the home itself.”
One of the most common causes of water damage is a pipe leak. Pike leaks can be large or small but any leak, regardless of the size, can cause very serious damage to one’s home. Even a seemingly minor leak can take weeks to dry on its own and will cause serious damage before then. It is advised that one contact a professional to inspect the damage before contacting their insurance provider, as an expert will have the experience and knowledge required to advise a homeowner on the related costs and coverage before they call their insurance company.
Toilet overflow is another one of the most common causes of water damage in a house. Depending on the amount of water, the level of contamination, what sort of flooring was exposed to the toilet water (and how many floors are below), the damage can potentially be quite serious. Similarly, water damage can be caused by a backed up sewer line. A sewer line backing up may expose the home to unsanitary water, often referred to as category 3 water, or black water. Cleaning and disinfecting materials and objects that have been exposed in this manner requires professional intervention.
Furthermore, dishwashers and water heaters are quite common household appliances. Many households have one, the other, or both installed, and either of these devices can cause water damage when they leak. It is important to get a leak checked out as quickly as possible and have an expert dry them properly to avoid further damage.
Homeowners are also advised to avoid hiring their insurance company’s preferred vendor. Often, the preferred vendor the insurance company uses will respond much slower than a company that one contacts directly would. A vendor sent by the insurance company is more likely to be more loyal to the insurance company than to the customer, with many insurance companies giving them instructions on what they can say or do. As The Flood Co. says, “A preferred vendor has instructions from the insurance company about what they can say or questions they can answer. They are not in a position to advise you on some topics.”
The Flood Co. has been serving Northern Utah and South West Wyoming for over 20 years. The company specializes in water damage restoration, fire and smoke damage restoration, mold damage restoration, and air duct cleaning using NADCA cleaning guidelines. They have, over the years, made many improvements to their restoration methods and achieved highly positive results. “We are happy with our results,” says the company. “We know you will be too. If we fail to restore your home to pre-damage conditions, give us a call—we will make it right.”
