To save you the inconvenience, we’ll even communicate with your insurance company on your behalf. We use sensors like moisture detectors and hygrometers to gauge the whole level of water damage, including what is visible and what is not appear below the surface.
For your peace of mind and to ensure that you understand every step in the process, our technicians will elaborate on the drying and cleaning techniques to you.
Your property’s pipes transport water throughout, so a leak or puncture might cause serious harm. If a kitchen sink pipe leaks, there is a chance that enough water will enter the cabinet underneath and cause damage. If a pipe inside the walls begins to leak, the situation can get worse. Due to the wetness of the entire wall, a leak like this might result in considerable water damage and the growth of a mold colony.
Frozen pipes are a frequent problem during the winter months. As the temperature drops, water in pipes with inadequate insulation may freeze. Since water expands when it freezes, the water lines are damaged, resulting in leaky pipes and house flooding.
Your property may sustain water damage as a result of tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural catastrophes. Strong winds and heavy rains might damage your roof, allowing rainwater to enter your house or place of business. Even worse, particularly if your property is located in an area that is prone to floods, severe weather can occasionally cause flash flooding.
You might be surprised to learn that occasionally people who live in multi-story apartments forget to turn off the water when they are getting ready for a bath, resulting in an overflow. Other times, washing machines malfunction, resulting in an overflow. These occurrences result in floods where these units are situated, and occasionally they induce leaks from the units upstairs to the units below. These incidents result in interior flooding, which harms the ceiling and drywall in addition to other areas of the house.
On occasion, due to persistent rain, the city’s drains are unable to handle the water flow that the precipitation generates. Your basement is the last remaining area for the water to flow if the drains are full. This may come as a surprise and occasionally be unavoidable.
Pipe bursts are a typical occurrence in Edmonton because of the bitterly cold climate. Although house insurance frequently covers burst pipes, it is still unpleasant. A burst pipe can cause damage to various regions of the house because pipes are overhead and water always flows downward. It’s crucial to maintain good pipe insulation and to make sure the heat is kept on during cold weather in Edmonton.
Despite their beauty, older homes often suffer from foundation problems. Water damage may eventually result from the foundation and structure starting to disintegrate.

When entering buildings, exercise caution. Before entering and checking a flooded building, make sure the electrical power is turned off and the building is sound. Be careful when moving items or taking things out of a structure because small animals or reptiles can be hiding there as well.
Protect yourself. Wear rubber gloves, protective gear, and an organic vapor respirator, all of which are available at paint or building supply stores. Open windows to let fresh air in and eventually hang a fan in a window to further ventilate impacted areas. To reduce cross-contamination, move your cleaning motions toward the fan.
Understand what to discard. Restoring porous objects that absorb contaminated floodwater is not advised. In general, damp drywall, carpet and padding, mattresses, pillows, box springs, and particle board should be thrown away.
Many household materials, including wet clothing, can be recoverable. Most contaminants and stains should be eliminated by machine washing, which includes at least a 10-minute soak in hot water and detergent.
Uncover saturated areas. Remove moist insulation, damaged wall fragments, and base molding. Measure 15 to 20 inches above the water line by locating it. Everything below that ought to be taken out and thrown away. To reveal pockets of saturation beneath flooring such as hardwood, laminate, or sheet vinyl for cleaning, disinfecting, and drying, the flooring should be taken up.
Aggressively Clean. Pressure washing with detergent solutions should be used to clean exposed durable materials (studs, joists), wall cavities, and other areas. Apply a disinfectant solution liberally after carefully cleaning and flushing any materials that can still be used. To complete this task properly and securely, a water restoration specialist may be required.
Keep mold from growing. Mold grows best in damp environments with organic material (like paper or particle board) and temperatures between 68°F and 86°F, even though it takes a few days for symptoms to manifest. Keep the temperature as mild as you can while keeping the air circulating.
Dry off before you start over. Reconstruct or cover wood until the moisture level of the wood falls below 16 percent to avoid dry rot and further structural damage. Although there are online moisture meters accessible, it may be advisable to engage a water restoration specialist to ensure proper drying before reconstruction in Edmonton.
