Water Damage Restoration in your Yukon home is pivotal for your health and safety!

Yukon Water Damage RestorationIf you have any type of water damage in your Yukon home, it is pivotal that you begin immediate restoration.  If you were to delay this process it can impact the structural as well as the environmental integrity of your home.  The longer the water is left alone, it can make the walls become damaged resulting in structural problems and it can also cause mold growth which can affect the environment of your home.

If mold were to grow in your home, it can cause adverse health reactions to those who are in sensitive health groups including the elderly, infants, those who compromised immune systems, and those who have allergies.  Each person has a different reaction to the mold growth and they can range from allergy like symptoms (stuffy nose, irritated eyes, wheezing, coughing or skin irritation) to more serious conditions such as respiratory infection and sinusitis.  Some people have reported a more serious reaction to mold, but this has not been medically proven.  Click here to learn more about mold related illnesses.

The best way to avoid problems from any type of water damage is to first contact your insurance company to file a claim and then immediately thereafter contact a restoration specialist.  When they come out to your home, the first thing they will do is work on stopping the water from entering your home.  If you have a busted pipe, they may turn off the water and have you contact your plumber to fix the broken pipe.  Or if you have other types of flooding, they will take necessary steps to stop the water from entering your home.

Once they have stopped the water from entering your home, they will use wet vacuums to suction all the water out. They will then use fans and dehumidifiers to dry out your home and remove any excess moisture.

After everything has been dried out they will then begin the restoration of your home.  This may include but not limited to removing and replacing damaged carpeting/flooring, removing and replacing drywall, fixing any type of structural damage which may have occurred and removed any furniture or mattresses.  Also, if needed, they will clean and sterilize all areas.  This is especially important if the water has been contaminated (flood water or backed up toilet water).

So, if you have water damage in your Yukon home, it is critical you contact a water damage restoration company to take care of it to avoid any health or structural problems.

3 Key things to look for in a Yukon Water Restoration Company!

If you have water damage in your Yukon home, you need to find a restoration company as soon as possible to avoid other problems.  Even though you may be in a rush, you should not pick the first company you see, or you may end up not happy with the results you receive. To help you expedite this process, there are 3 key things to look for before choosing a company.  If they have these, then you can feel confident in the company you choose.

The first key thing to look for would be that the water restoration company is fully insured.  Insurance is important because it protects you the homeowner in the event one of their employees gets hurt on your property or they further damage your property.  If they did not have insurance, then they would file a claim with your homeowner’s insurance.  If your homeowner’s insurance denied the claim, then it would be up to you personally to cover the damages.  If they decided to cover the claim, it may cause your insurance premiums to rise.

Key things to look for in a Yukon Water Restoration CompanThe second key thing to look for would be that the water damage restoration company is IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Restoration Certification) Certified.  IICRC is a non-profit organization who sets industry standards to ensure water is properly cleaned up and the property is restored to the highest degree.  If the water contains any type of sewage, they know the best way to sterilize the area of any type of pathogen which may be present.  Read more about IICRC Water Restoration practices by clicking here.

The third key thing to look for would be their client feedback.  This is important because it will provide you insight on how they run their business and the service they provide their clients.  When you look at feedback, you should look for it from a couple different third-party feedback websites.  As you are looking at this feedback, if you see that a restoration company has had negative feedback, then you should remove them from consideration.

When you look for these 3 key things, you should be able to quickly identify a couple of companies you like the best.  At this point, you should contact these companies and see who you feel the most comfortable working with as well as who can arrive at your home the fastest.  This is vital because the longer it takes from them to come out, the more damage there will be to your home.

So, in the unfortunate event that you have water damage in your Yukon home, you should be able to quickly identify a restoration company by looking for these 3 key things.
