Like the name of our business indicates, “Damage Control 911,” is our first priority in responding to water damage that can cause structural damage to your home or business. We focus on structural drying techniques that minimize the damage to your structure as well as the contents inside.
Time Is Of the Essence
If you have discovered water damage in your home or business, the worst thing you can do is wait before calling in professionals to dry everything out. The longer your structures stay wet, the more damage you are going to have. This is a guarantee. Waiting just one day to get started can mean a 75% jump in loss. Quite literally, every hour counts when it comes to structural drying to remove water. This is why we have emergency response teams standing by to respond to your water emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
On top of this, we are committed to being at your site in under an hour after you call us if humanly possible! We know from our vast experience that the sooner we start, the more we can save for you! We also realize that every water damage situation is unique so it needs to be personally evaluated. Give us a call at 800.220.6903 or 407.218.5862 and we’ll come right out, quickly evaluate your specific situation, and give you a free quote. We can also make it easier for you to put in your insurance claim.
Home Insurance Almost Always Covers Water Damage
People sometimes delay calling in professionals for structural drying because they are concerned about the cost. However, this concern should be allayed by the fact that your home insurance should cover the cost of the restoration minus the deductible. In fact, your insurance company will appreciate you calling a professional as soon as you discover the water issue because this will mean less damage and a lower claim for them!
Secondary Damage Is Often Worse Than Your Primary Damage
Water damage caused by a flood, damaged roof, busted pipes, or any other catastrophe can cause immediate damage to your home or business. However, the secondary damage that follows in the days, weeks, or even months later is often FAR worse!
The BAD NEWS: The longer your structures stay wet, the more chance for mold issues and the higher chance that the structural integrity of the building will be in jeopardy. This is why the framing, drywall, flooring, sub-flooring, carpet, carpet pads, and other structures need to be dried as quickly as possible.
The GOOD NEWS: If we can get started the day of the water event, or shortly thereafter, and dry your structures very quickly, we can often save them! Again, time is of the essence when it comes to dealing with water damage.
Don’t be fooled. The difference between two days and three days is huge when it comes to structural drying. The difference between two days and five to seven days, the average time it takes for traditional structural drying methods to work, is like day and night in terms of how much damage your structures will incur. Every day matters. In fact, half day matters. This is why you should call us at 800.220.6903 or 407.218.5862. We use drying methods that are BETTER than traditional methods.
We Use Techniques That Speeds Up Drying
We cannot over-emphasize how important it is to speed up drying. This is why everything our team does once we get your call is geared toward speeding up the drying process. This is why we respond so fast, work so fast, and use the most advanced modern techniques that get the job done at lightening speed.
Humidity Is Another Major Issue
It’s not just the water that soaks into your structures that can cause extensive damage. It is also the water in the air, i.e. the humidity, that can cause both secondary structural damage and increasing damage to the items inside your house or business. High humidity causes damage to furniture, mattresses, books, papers, artwork, toys, and many other household items or inventory in your business. This is why we also focus on reducing the humidity as quickly as possible.
Controlled High Heat Versus Dehumidifying
The old way of structural drying involved setting up industrial dehumidifiers to suck the water out of the air. Industrial fans were also often aimed at wet and damaged structures to increase the evaporation of water. Although these methods do still make sense for a small minority of water damage cases, controlled high heat using state-of-the-art high end equipment will drastically cut down the time it takes to dry everything out. This can mean the difference between saving your structures and not saving them!
“Controlled” high heat means the heat is contained in the affected areas only, often allowing you and your family to continue living in other parts of the home or for your business to continue to function in parts of the building unaffected by the water damage. “Controlled” also means that we keep the temperature under 100 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure your appliances, electronics, furniture, and other items are not damaged by heat. Controlled high heat techniques have another major advantage over the old fashioned method. They are MUCH quieter. Using the older techniques, no one could stand to be in the building with the noise produced! This means you’d have to move out of your home or your business would have to shut down for a while.
