When You Need Flood Damage Restoration the Most
Flooding can occur unexpectedly and without warning. In our experience, the most common types of flooding are as follows:
Water Heater, Dishwasher or Washing Machine Failures
Cracks in the Foundation of Your Home
Raising Water Tables from Creeks, Rivers, and Streams
Recovering From a Flood to Your Home
If floodwaters do strike, there is not a moment to lose. Each hour that water stands stagnant can lead to increasingly irreversible water flood damage.
Contact your Insurance Company
The moment you realize your property has been impacted by floodwaters, reach out to your insurance company to start the claims process. They will document your situation and begin the investigation process to see if your policy will cover the costs of your flood damage repair.
Ensure the Safety of Your Property
Shut off any main power or water lines to the property and make sure the structural integrity of the building is sound. Safety is key, and sometimes during a flood, electrical systems and structural soundness can become compromised. Do not, however, walk through standing water to shut off the electricity.
Reach Out to JLJ Restoration & Construction, LLC
When dealing with flood damage, you want to rely on an experienced disaster restoration company like JLJ Restoration & Construction, LLC. We not only have the experience and water restoration training to understand where hidden areas of flood damage reside, but we also can address them immediately.
Beyond the initial flood water damage, if the affected areas are not properly cleaned and dried, harmful secondary damage such as mold, structural issues of the home, or the spread of harmful bacteria will result.
Flood Damage Repair Process
When you call JLJ Restoration & Construction, LLC to handle flood damage in your home, we understand there is not a moment to lose. Our technicians are trained to follow a specific four-step process we provide to all of our customers.
Step 1: Site Evaluation
When our dispatchers take your call, we do not waste any time arriving at your property. There, our IICRC-certified technicians will assess the water damage, identify the affected areas, and propose a restoration plan that suits your needs.
Step 2: Extract Standing Water
In a flood situation, standing water can be extremely hazardous due to the contaminants present in the area. We will immediately begin extracting the standing water while adhering to the standards of the IICRC for hazardous "category three" water, sometimes called "black water."
Step 3: Materials Removal & Drying
Since flood damage is hazardous, we will determine which building materials are salvageable. During this time, we will rip out all materials that cannot be dried to a safe condition, and set up our drying equipment in the affected areas. We also evaluate your belongings and will advise you on which can be dried and cleaned and which require disposal.
Step 4: Remediate, Replace & Restore
Last but not least, we will remediate any of the dried areas through the use of a HEPA vacuum, and thoroughly treat the area with disinfectant solutions. We will replace and paint any drywall, sheetrock or interior finishes that could not be dried, thereby restoring your property to its original condition.
Basement Flood Damage Restoration
Basements are commonplace for flooding in a home. Basements are below ground level and contain many different opportunities for water intrusion. The most common way a basement will flood is usually because of a storm. With hurricanes or flash flooding, copious amounts of water make it difficult for normal drainage systems to cope. Sometimes the water table rises so high and so quickly, it causes floods. If you incur flooding in your home call JLJ Restoration & Construction, LLC to help you with the water removal and extraction.
