Water damage, when it occurs, can be a nightmare. If it occurs in your office, then it can be a hindrance in performing the daily operations of your business, and it could be an exasperating test of your patience if it occurs at your home. It is an important factor that reduces the value of the property as it can damage the pipes, the plumbing, wooden walls and the furniture as well as electronics and other items.

Here is all you need to know about water damage and why it is vital that you opt for professional water restoration services.

How is it caused?

Water damage has many causes, some of them are:

  • Broken or rusted pipes that burst
  • Heavy rains or floods
  • Early melting of snow
  • Clogged drains or toilets
  • Overflowing dishwashers or washing machines
  • Leaks in floors
  • Leaks on roofs

How to detect water damage

Water damage caused by leaks, or pipes, or overflowing washing machines can be detected almost immediately, but if there is a slow leakage in the pipes or if your drain is clogged, then it may take a while to detect water damage. Leakage in underground pipes is another problem caused by water damage that is difficult to detect.

Hearing the sound of water running, finding wet areas on the walls or the tiles that do not have a water source close by, and noticing a lower water pressure in taps are signs that there may be water damage in the pipes or the underground pipeline system.

Once you notice any signs of water damage in your home or office, you should immediately call a professional water restoration company to fix the damage at the earliest hour.

Problems caused by water damage

Health problems

The leakage of water promotes the growth of molds and other fungal organisms that can cause serious health problems to the people. Molds can cause allergies, flu like symptoms, asthma, damage your immune system, depression, chronic fatigue and other respiratory problems. This is why if mold develops in your home, it needs to be cleaned up immediately to prevent any damage to health.

Other Problems

Apart from health, water damage can also cause several other problems such as damage to the furniture and rugs, electronic items, seepage of walls, higher utility bills, and wasted water and energy.

How to restore damage caused by water

Since the water restoration process is important, it should be done using the right procedures and tools to reduce the amount of damage done. And therefore, you should call in a water restoration company to restore the damage.

A professional water restoration company, such as NYC Steam Cleaning, has experts who know how to repair the damage in a professional and planned manner. When you call NYC Steam Cleaning, their customer service will send over the water restoration crew and advise you on what you need to do until they arrive.

The experts will assess the damage, locate the source causing the damage, and then propose a water removal and restoration plan for your review. In order to seamlessly carry out the whole process, they will use documented procedures and high-tech equipments to mitigate and control water damage.

They will also use high tech equipment and professional tools to minimize the growth of mold and other microbes, reduce damage, and monitor the drying process. Not only this, but NYC Steam Cleaning will also work with your insurance company to get the claims and repair your home as soon as possible.

However, if you notice water damage, then you should do the following to stop further leakage of water before the professional crew arrives:

  • Turn off all the water taps, faucets and appliances that use water such as washing machines or dishwashers.
  • Unplug all your electrical appliances to prevent them from being damaged or reduce chances of short circuits.
  • Contact your insurance company to see how much you’re covered in case your office or home gets damaged by water.

5 star experience. I recently got a puppy who turned my new couch into her personal bathroom. I did a google search and found NYC steam cleaning. Luckily, I was able to make an appointment for the next day with this company. The entire cleaning took about 1 hour. My couch is brand new again, thank you!!

 I have hired them two times and have been highly pleased. Our pet was not very nice to this carpet and they were capable to get it clean. They also did my upholstery and the whole thing looks great. Their service charges are very rational and the workers have arrived within few minutes.
