Water damage can be caused by a wide range of sources such as plumbing problems from faulty water heaters, toilets, sinks, water or sewer lines as well as leaky roofs and air conditioning condensation lines. Even the most solidly built and well-maintained home can be damaged by a violent force of nature, such as a flood. So thereís no way to predict exactly how a water-related emergency might occur. But, itís a constant possibility and fact-of-life for all of us.

When you've suffered a water damage loss, you must take immediate action. Allowing a wet carpet, wall, vanity, flooring or furniture to remain wet is only an invitation for future problems and added expenses. Allowing a structure to soak will only cause further damage. If itís wet, you need to dry it as soon as possible and your shop vac is not going to handle it.

Water Damage or Mold Damage in Granite Bay, we can help!

We specialize in Water Extraction, Structural Drying, and Contents Drying. Contact PuroClean Home Rescue now, and we can help you start the process of restoring your property before the water damage worsens.

The first key is to maximize the removal of water from carpet and padding by using the latest technology extractor equipment that will remove the water out of the carpet and pad without removing, disturbing or lifting the carpet and padding. PuroClean Home Rescue uses weighted extraction which compresses the carpet and pad and removes over 95% of the water from carpet, pad and sub floor. Our process does not require disengaging and floating your carpet. While many use this technique, it can severely reduce the life or your carpet by deteriorating the backing. Carpet is 50% weaker when wet.

After the extraction process, the next step is to set up dehumidifiers and turbo drying fans in such a configuration that creates a vortex air flow that draws the moisture out of the flooring and structure. PuroClean uses high efficiency LGR and desiccant dehumidifiers to remove the moisture in the air.

Daily monitoring, charting and adjusting the drying process will reduce the drying time. We use Psychrometric charting to take the guess work out of drying every structure. (Psychrometry is the study of atmospheric air and its associated water vapor.) Daily adjustments of the drying equipment is required for maximum effectiveness.

What Are the Benefits of Using the Applied Drying Process?

  • Quicker drying time - most cases in 3 days.
  • Quicker claim closure time due to less reconstruction requirements.
  • Property occupants quickly returning to regular routine.
  • Lower claim costs due to:
    • Non-destructive drying processes.
    • No carpet or pad replacement. (In most cases)
    • Mold prevention steps used during every loss.

Some molds (like the the dreaded back mold: Stachybotrys) produce toxic micotoxins that can cause severe illness in humans and could even result in death. All molds, however, can trigger allergies and asthma attacks, irritate, the eyes, the skin, the throat, nose and lungs of a human being living in contaminated house. According to the EPA, here's how we can prevent mold from becoming a problem:

  1. Keep Humidity Low
    The less humidity in the air, the less moisture, the less mold. The EPA recommends a humidity level of 30-50%.
  2. Give Your Roof Some Love
    Make sure to keep your roof in working order. A leaky roof leads to a moldy house. Make sure to keep your gutters in good stead as well.
  3. Clean Up Spill Quickly
    If you can clean the area within 24-48 hours, mold will probably not grow.
  4. Air Conditioners
    Keep air conditioner pans clean and drain lines working correctly.
  5. Showers
    Open the window or run the exhaust fan when showering. Opening the windows is the electricity-free choice.
  6. Vent Appliances
    Vent appliances that create moisture to the outside when possible.
  7. Increase Ventilation
    Open windows when possible.
  8. Cold Pipes
    Cover those cold pipes with insulation.
  9. Increase Air Temperature
    The EPA says increase air temperature, but we are all trying to reduce our home's air temperature to save energy. What to do? Increasing your insulation may be a better overall solution. A dehumidifier is another option.
  10. Keep Water Away from Foundation
    Make sure the ground slopes downward away from your home. Water pooling around the foundation of your house is a sure recipe for mold.

Water Damaged Bathrooms

The bathroom is a common source of water damage in homes in Granite Bay and across the country. There are many reasons for this, but the main reason is simply because of the constant use of water in the bathroom. The bathroom has a labyrinth of pipes that carry hot and cold water running beneath it, and any blockages or cracks can cause a water damage loss. Conditions in the bathroom are often more humid than in the rest of the house because the doors are always closed and windows are never left open when people are using the shower. Often the vent fans are inadequate to remove the water from the air that can lead to mold. Take care to inspect your bathroom regularly to catch problems before they escalate.

Check the area around the shower stalls or the bathtubs. If these seem yellow or discolored, that could be the first sign of a leak. If your bathroom is carpeted (something I never recommend) check the carpet for discoloration, especially near the shower and bathtub - it could be an indication of water damage. The tiles should have no empty grout space between them. If you choose to replace the waterproof caulking around bathtubs and sink yourself, choose a caulking that has a built in anti-microbial. Don't ignore toilet leaks, and look into a bath tub that is slow to drain -- it could be an indication of blockage in the pipes below. Avoid clogging your toilet with too much toilet paper, and be careful about the deodorant bowls that can get lodged in the bowl, and choke the pipes. Some chlorine tablets can corrode sanitary fittings, causing them to leak. Remember to check under sinks for water damage, and see if the water lines are securely connected.

A flood damaged bathroom can lead to damage of your wood bathroom cabinets. These water damaged bathrooms cabinets can be accompanied by damage to the floors and walls, damage to countertops and ultimately mold growth. To prevent any water damage problems from getting worse, contact PuroClean Home Rescue and we will take care of it for you.
