Imagining functioning for a significant period of time without the immediate availability of cold and hot water is laughable. Yet the damage caused by sudden and accidental water line breaks can ruin a home if not addressed both quickly and properly.
Therefore significant risks range from flooded stormwater to faulty household appliances, as unwanted water is one of the greatest threats to your property. Consequently, the 212° Restoration team has the certification, technology, and response time needed to restore your property in order to get your life back on track.
A Common Example
A basement level water heater lacking proper maintenance can rust through, discharging water across the floor. Thus, resulting in the drywall adsorbing the moisture, pulling it up via capillary action to 4″-6” height within 24 hours of initial exposure.
Typically, most homeowners or landlords focus on the wet carpet and pad. However, through our certified training, we recognize this a class II loss where structural materials (drywall and framing) are impacted. As a result, our team designates an organic room perimeter that we need to get “structurally dry” within 72 hours of the incident to prevent secondary damage such as mold growth.
We begin our process with extracting and drying of the carpet as well as the pad. Inevitably more attention is directed to the walls, subflooring, and perimeter with specialized drying techniques such as injection drying.
Our motto here is “Don’t let a clean water loss cause mold on your perimeter framing, trim, and drywall.”
Dehumidification Drying and Process
The lack of proper dehumidification is a primary factor in promoting the growth of mold. 212° Restoration helps homeowners, business owners, as well as insurance companies effectively save time and money, through the use of both our dehumidification and directed heat drying equipment.
With advanced drying and dehumidification techniques, we remove water and moisture from nearly all household objects, ranging from drywall, plaster, interior paint, floors, carpets, insulation, to basements. Thus, resulting in a reduced loss of structure along with the cost of a rebuild.
Trust the certified professionals at 212° Restoration to get the job done in an effective and efficient manner.
