Water Damage Restoration

Water damage is one of the most common issues that we come across when assessing homes and businesses. Water-damaged floors, carpets, ceilings, walls are extremely common. Basically, anywhere there’s a material that can absorb water or moisture, there can be potential problems and water damage. However, because water doesn’t usually cause immediate structural damages like termites or fire (though it may), you might not realize the extent of your problem until after disaster strikes.

Fortunately for homeowners dealing with water damage, Expert Remodeling Dallas is here to assist you in returning your home or business to a livable, useable space free of mold, mildew, and damages. Ideally, we will be able to help restore your property to a significantly updated condition that will ultimately add value to your property and offer years of enjoyment too!

Water Damage Causes

Water damage can be caused by many sources, including plumbing leaks, broken pipes, frozen pipes, roof leaks, storm damage, accidents involving water. Water has the capacity to cause an immense amount of damage, especially when water pipes break and spill inside walls, slabs, or other locations where the damage may go unnoticed for any amount of time.

The Most Common Causes of Water Damage Are:

  • Water Leaks
  • Water Pipes Breaking and Spilling Into Walls and Floors
  • Blocked Drains
  • Air Conditioner Condensation
  • Washing Machine Line Failure
  • Clogged Gutters
  • Leaking Water Heater
  • Sprinkler System Malfunction
  • Storm Damage
  • Roof Leaks

Water Damage Prevention

Water damage prevention requires you to be proactive about possible sources of water damage before they become a problem. To identify potential sources of water damage it is important to check around your home or commercial structure for any wet spots, leaking appliances, mold, or other signs that water or moisture may be present.

It is a great idea to hire professionals to install backflow valves to prevent wastewater from backing up into sinks and toilets and to fix leaky faucets as soon as you notice them dripping. Also, if you notice any signs there has already been an episode of water damage, it is extremely important to identify the source of the damage and if the water is still accumulating. Once you have identified the source, it is important to contact a professional to assess and repair any damage as quickly as possible to prevent or limit mold or other damages.

Water Damage Clean Up

Water damage can cause significant damage to your home or commercial property. The most detrimental water damage includes mold and structural stability problems and there are many different aspects of those damages. Water damage should be taken care of as quickly as possible by a professional because any water damages can cause serious problems including mold and structural damage. For example, any water damage to your home or office is never a good thing. It can be very expensive and time consuming to repair, as well as having potentially negative and even detrimental impacts on your family or employees.

Water damage can occur when there is flooding or leaks in a home, which can lead to extensive water permeating into ceilings, walls, carpeting, and floors. Water will eventually find its way into every crack and crevice if left unchecked, which usually leads to mold and other significant damages. Water damages almost always require professional restoration services because of the potential for mold growth. A trained professional will be able to dry out the moisture as quickly as possible (within 24 hours) before any serious mold or structural problems arise. It’s important to note that mold spores are capable of producing allergic reactions such as respiratory issues, asthma attacks, skin irritations including eczema, and other uncomfortable symptoms that may result from prolonged exposure.

Water Damage and Mold

Mold can grow in as little as 48 hours with the right conditions, such as dampness. Water removal is a must for any building that has sustained water damages so mold does not have time to take hold. If you have experienced any water damage, it is important to find a way to dry your home within two days. Mold is hazardous to your health, so it’s important that you start the process of drying out any water damage. Big repairs are a possibility if you don’t get started right away!

It’s not just mold that can cause health issues such as fever and difficulty breathing. Anyone with Asthma should be especially careful around leaks or other sources of water damage, which most often lead to unhealthy levels of mold growth. If mold begins to grow, the process of removing your home from water damage must wait until all the mold is removed and a restoration company gives you authorization that repairs are complete. Water damage is not always simple to identify, and you should be vigilant about the appearance of water-damaged items, even if they appear dry. Water is often hidden in the walls and flooring, so it’s important to identify all the affected areas and dry them out. This prevents mold from growing!

Water Damage To Drywall

Water not only damages drywall, it completely destroys the material, requiring complete replacement of any drywall exposed to significant water damage. Water can cause stains on drywall surfaces on walls and ceilings depending on the type of water that has been spilled.

Because drywall is an important part of your home’s structure, it creates structural stability with its gypsum panels which are layered together to form rigid boards. When the layers get wet due to flooding, leaks or even condensation, they can disintegrate when exposed to large quantities of water or they may start warping over time when exposed to smaller water quantities. This slow exposure can create cracks where mold may grow, ruining the property value if not corrected fast enough! Even small amounts of damage can cause tens of thousands of dollars for repairs.

Water will cause drywall with spackle surfaces to warp as the moisture soaks into them from outside sources such as condensation of cold air coming through windows or when hot humid air enters during summer months (convection). The plasterboard layer may buckle if there are metal fasteners embedded within it – these expand due to their thickness being thinner than that of the wall material used for construction purposes.

Water Damage To Ceilings

Water damages ceilings when water comes in through a hole or cracks in the roof or ceiling. When significant damage is done, water causes ceilings to sag, as well as ruining insulation and acoustic tiles in the process.

Water damages ceilings may be caused by roof leaks or potentially by bathroom leaks in the case of a two-story home or building. Because ceiling panels are made of drywall, they can readily absorb water. Once the drywall becomes saturated with water, the weight of the material is unsustainable and it begins to swell or sag.

When a large enough area is damaged and sagging, it becomes structurally unsound and runs the risk of collapsing, which can be dangerous to inhabitants and has the potential to cause even more damage. Additionally, wet ceiling panels are almost always likely to be a point of growth for mold. 

Water Damage To Insulation

Water damage to walls, ceilings, and foundations can be devastating. In any of these situations, water may also cause insulation material in walls and around pipes in your home or building to deteriorate at a faster rate than without moisture exposure.

Glass fiber insulation (GFI) can lose its heat-trapping ability when it gets wet. Still, if it dries out and is not firmly compressed, it will reflect heat the way it did before getting soaked. Wet insulation in a closed wall cavity will not dry out quickly. If the insulation became wet from water that contained contaminants such as floodwater and sewage, then it is likely completely ruined and should be replaced immediately. The only way to know if a wall is wet or not when there are no visible signs of moisture inside the wall cavity is if you open the wall and inspect it. A contractor may be able to use a moisture detector to identify where moisture is present, but the best way to assess the extent of any damages is to open the wall to see.

Water Damage To Floors

Water damages carpeting by making it swell up into mounds after being wet for a long period of time. This leaves your rug looking older than its years and causes water buildup around furniture legs that is difficult to clean off. Water damages tile floors by causing grout lines to expand and contract as the moisture in between them changes. Water damages wood floors by swelling the grain of hardwood flooring, causing boards to pull apart or bow up where they meet each other at a joint. 

The most common type of water damage is caused when water penetrates a building’s roof and walls, pooling beneath its drywall before seeping into the structure’s subflooring materials (such as insulation) below which supports all internal structures such as joists and beams that carry weight loads. This damage to the subfloor creates a situation where the entire area may need to be gutted to remove the damaged materials along with any mold that may have formed. 

Water Damage To Cabinets

Water damages cabinets by causing the wood to warp or buckle after drying. Water can also seep in behind the cabinet’s face frame and cause it to fail at the joints, which leads to creaking or cracking noises when you use nearby drawers. Water has been proven as a potential source of bacteria growth, especially within kitchens where appliances are often situated next to sinks with running water or where cabinets have been damaged due to water leakage from various sources.
