The Two Most Commonly Needed Emergency Services
Water and or fire damage restoration are two of the most commonly needed emergency services. Most water damage originates inside the home, from things like faulty, frozen, or broken pipes or connections. Most of this type of damage is covered by home owners insurance.
Flooding can be caused by heavy rains upstream. This can be the cause of a flash flood, when a wall water comes rushing downstream destroying most everything in its path. Our Central Texas area is prone to flash floods. Anyone living in or around creeks or streams are well advised to have Flood Insurance since this type of damage is not covered by Homeowners Insurance.
Common Causes of Fire Damage
Fire damage can be caused by faulty wiring, wild fires or just carelessness. Fire can cause serious structural damage or even complete destruction of the entire building, fire can affect many different things in a building, even if they were very small. For instance, smoke can spread soot into every nook and cranny all through the house. All this damage will require trained technicians and the proper equipment to remove, clean, and restore to original condition.
These types of disaster require immediate attention. In a water damage situation drywall is one of the principal victims. Drywall can become quickly saturated and lose structural integrity and possibly collapse. Carpet furniture electronics can also be damaged and must be clean and dried out quickly to prevent mold from growing. Broken pipes or leaking pipe connections can leak water inside the walls or attic for some time before the problem is visible. This will give time for mold to grow and spread. A simple leak can turn into a major problem if it is not corrected quickly.
While the initial damage from these types of problems can be painful, if they are not properly addressed immediately, the problem can quickly multiply into a major disaster. Our technicians are here ready to respond with the professional help you need when you need it most.
