Flood Restoration Flood Auckland
Water is the single most long term destructive substance in the indoor environment. Excess moisture or flooding can cause structures and personal property to rapidly deteriorate. The problem becomes more serious when the water is unsanitary or clean up services are delayed. The harmful effects of water are sharply reduced by prompt and effective intervention. Especially within the first 24-48 hours. Even though the damage may look severe, cleanup and flood restoration can produce amazing results.
Immediate response times when flooding occurs saves both time and money. The longer the water damage can go untreated the greater the damage may or can be. The flood restoration procedures are designed to eliminate moisture. As well as stopping or preventing the growth of mold and mildew. Generally most wet carpets can and will withstand or hold water for up to three days. However an immediate response to wet carpet is crucial for the best outcome. In most cases, the different types of water will also affect the decision to restore the carpet or not.
What are the Different Types of Water Damage?
There are types of water damage situations that may not be covered under your policy. Many policies will cover damage that happens suddenly and out of the blue. If a pipe suddenly bursts, typical policies would cover the water damage repairs. But if the water damage is due to wear and improper upkeep, most policies will not cover the repairs. It is important to make sure you understand the details of your policy and to know what you are responsible for.
Water damage arises from many different sources such as the likes of:
- A bath tub overflow
- A sink overflow
- Any type of Hot water system breakdown
- Air conditioner condensation pan overflow
