Water is the single most long-term destructive substance in the indoor environment. Excess moisture or flooding can cause structures and personal property to rapidly deteriorate. The problem becomes more serious when the water is unsanitary or clean-up services are delayed.
The harmful effects of water are sharply reduced by prompt and effective intervention, especially within the first 24-48 hours. Even though the damage may look severe, cleanup and restoration can produce amazing results. From furniture to family heirlooms, office computers to production machinery, BELFOR has successfully restored water-damaged structures and property for more than 70 years.
How Can Water Damage Be Repaired?
The restoration process is very scientific. To determine if your property can be restored or must be replaced, we evaluate three criteria:
- Amount of Property Damage
- Degree of Contamination
- Replacement Costs vs. Restoration Costs
If not promptly and properly dealt with, water damage can cause major business interruption, financial burdens and potential health risks.
How Do You Stop Mold From Growing?
The window of opportunity to prevent mold growth is measured in hours, not days or weeks. To prevent mold from developing, you need a fast response from a professional water damage restoration contractor like BELFOR. Although really dangerous molds are not an everyday occurrence, any mold has the potential to cause health problems and proper removal is critical.
From initial air quality testing and mold identification to safe removal methods, we make sure your property is repaired quickly and professionally.
