Anytime you have water damage in your Boise, Idaho home or in your place of business, it should be dealt with promptly. The cause of the damage and the size of the affected area need to be taken into consideration when evaluating what steps must be taken, or whether to hire a professional remediation contractor such as Restoration Pro. If you spill some liquid onto the floor, or if you use the bathtub or shower and find water on the floor after, calling a professional Restoration contractor is not necessary. Simply clean it up quickly and there is nothing to worry about. However, if your dishwasher leaks and your floor shows signs of damage, or if the tub or shower leaks enough that you see water damage around it or in a room below it, you should contact a professional to help take care of the damage properly. Typically, only a portion of the damaged material is visible. For example, water lines attached to refrigerators and dishwashers can leak for days before the damage to the floor around them becomes visible. Often the water is slowly traveling along the base of the wall behind the cabinets or running down into the crawlspace. It’s only when the materials under the leak become saturated enough that the physical evidence becomes visible.
Calling in a professional
If your Boise, Idaho home or business place has been significantly damaged by water leaks or other kinds of disasters such as a fire, or mold, that will probably be a no-brainer – you will need a professional water damage repair service like Restoration Pro to restore your home or place of business to its pre-loss condition. However, even when much smaller areas of water damage have occurred in your home, the smart thing to do is to call in Restoration Pro to do the work which is necessary.
Many do-it-yourselfers are tempted to try and restore areas which have been subjected to water damage themselves, but in the long run, it’s just not worth it. To the untrained eye, it might very well appear that an area has been completely dried up, and that there is no more water in the damaged area. This is often not the case however, because water can seep down to lower levels, and can be absorbed by underlying materials. When that happens, moisture will just stay there, and create ideal conditions for the development of mold and mildew. Restoration Pro gets called to homes regularly to fix issues that were improperly handled by the homeowner the first time around.
Why a professional water remediation service is your best bet
The professionals at Restoration Pro have specialized equipment for detecting moisture, so there can be no doubt about whether there’s still water in any given area of your home. There’s no substitute for the experience that a professional has in detecting and remediating water damage. Professionals also are knowledgeable about the kinds of chemicals which can be used to prevent the development of mold and mildew in your home or business place.
There’s even a convenience factor involved, because our Restoration Pro specialists will work directly with your insurance company on damage claims, so that you don’t have to personally. Restoration Pro works with all insurance carriers, and knows the protocols and procedures they require to get your home back to a preloss condition within a budget that is approved by the insurance company.
Some water damage situations in Boise, Idaho call for prompt attention, so that water damage doesn’t spread, and so the water itself doesn’t get absorbed by the surrounding building materials. The fastest way to check water damage in any given area, is to have a Restoration Pro professional come in with the proper equipment, as well as the knowledge and experience to limit any damage which has occurred. The sooner you can clear up any kind of water damage, the less it’s going to cost you, as a homeowner or business owner.
