The Flood Co., a water damage repair services company in Centerville, Utah, has announced that they have recently performed an Ogden Utah water damage cleanup. There was water damage to the home from the windows on the ground floor of the home. The windows were not properly sealed when they were installed with the result that water leaked into the home and soaked the walls and floors in several rooms of the home. It was a situation where the services of The Flood Co. were required.
Daryl Olsen, president of The Flood Co., says, “It turned out to be a situation where our expertise was badly needed. Indeed, water intrusion from roofs, windows or pipe breaks can let a tremendous amount of water in your home or business very fast. And when confronted with water inside your home or business, you should know that water is not the only threat to your property. The longer you wait to deal with these types of situations, the more indoor mold growth becomes a serious possibility. That is why we were thankful that this particular customer called us as soon as possible.”
Daryl Olsen advises homeowners and other property owners to keep calm if they are experiencing water damage in their home or commercial establishment. The next thing that they need to do is to call a local water damage remediation contractor and get a technician to inspect the home or property as soon as possible even if the severity of the damages incurred is not yet known. The sooner the better for technicians to be able to assess the damages, and the better chances for restoring the property back to the “pre-loss condition” in a shorter period of time.
In the case of the project that The Flood Co. was recently involved, much water has already seeped in through the windows, causing damage to various belongings in the home in the ground floor. Things that got wet, even those that were not visibly wet, had to be dried like the carpet and various furniture items. Thus, they were removed from the area and placed in an area where they can get dry. Then, the water that got in had to be removed and the rooms in the ground floor had to be made dry using blowers. After that, they checked for visible signs of mold and performed the mold removal procedure where it was needed. Tests were made to check for mold and cleaning was continued until the levels that are considered to be safe were reached.
In cases of water damage, Daryl Olsen advises homeowners and property owners not to hire their insurance company’s preferred vendor. This is due to a number of reasons regarding response time, loyalty, delays, accountability, the fact that some insurance companies do not cover mold, convenience, and disagreement between insurance firms on the standards for drying. And the preferred vendor of an insurance firm usually has instructions from the firm about questions that they can answer and what they can say. There are often not in a position to advise the homeowner or property owner on some topics. Meanwhile, The Flood Co. also provides other kinds of services. These include smoke and fire damage services and mold damage services, including mold testing.
The Flood Co. has been serving Northern Utah and South West Wyoming for the past 20 years.
