Centerville, UT based The Flood Co. wishes to inform the various communities they serve that the company’s services extend far past damage caused by natural disasters. While they are capable of responding to large scale disasters, they reassure customers across the state that they are ready and willing to answer calls for help on smaller fronts as well.
“Despite our name, we don’t often work with literal floods,” clarifies Daryl Olsen of The Flood Co. “To be specific, we don’t work exclusively with water damage caused by disasters, natural or otherwise.” Instead, the Salt Lake City water damage cleanup expert provides a wide variety of services that are meant to help homeowners and other property administrators mitigate damage caused by many forms of water exposure. Olsen continues, “If a source of water on your property causes damage to the structures on it, you can request our help. We’ll locate the source of the water, clean up the mess, and take every measure necessary to ensure that such an event won’t repeat itself in the future.”
According to Olsen, this applies to absolutely any source of water damage. Whether the damage in question is caused by a leak, an accident, a malfunctioning appliance, or an actual natural disaster, the company makes their expert team and specialized tools available at a moment’s notice to address the situation. This is because water damage is often only the initial issue, given its potential to lead to more pressing dangers as time goes by. In many cases, for instance, delaying restoration work can allow dangerous growths of mold to flourish, posing a distinct risk to any residents in the vicinity.
As the company states, “Get help with water damage whenever anything accidentally gets wet in your home. 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. If they stay wet for more than a few days, mold can grow. Once mold grows, the same drying options are not available, and more demolition will then be necessary. Whenever you have a water damage event, have it checked out to avoid more serious damage.”
To illustrate their point, the company shares a few details regarding a restoration project they were recently contracted on. The residents of a home in Salt Lake City, Utah had the misfortune to find their basement exposed to water that had come in through a window from a leaky sprinkler system. As a result, around 400 sq ft of area rugs suffered damage. Since the basement floor was concrete and had a finishing stain on it, this stain eventually bled over onto the area rugs as well, defacing them further. At this point in the restoration process, it is still unclear whether the rugs can be salvaged enough to regain their former appearance.
Olsen explains that, “Our initial inspections found no traces of mold that needed to be resolved, just relatively extensive water damage. As we keep working on this project and deal with any leftover moisture, we’ll take every precaution necessary to ensure that mold continues to be held at bay. We take the safety of both our customers and personnel extremely seriously, so maintaining safe working conditions even in the middle of a restoration project is always a top priority for us.” Even without a mold outbreak to contend with, a problem that requires a notoriously labor intensive solution, the company estimates that the total cost of the restoration will amount to $6,000.
Those who wish to learn more about the company’s services, or schedule an appointment to have their property checked for water damage, may reach out to Daryl Olsen of The Flood Co. In addition, the company can be reached through their social media platforms, where they regularly share new updates on their work and communicate with their customers.
