The Water Damage Reno is here to help you in your time of need. We understand that when disaster strikes, the last thing on your mind is preparing yourself to find a water damage restoration company to take care of the situation as quickly as possible.
When smoke and fire damage happens, mold grows within 24-48 hours because humidity levels climb high enough to support their growth. High humidity levels also prevent the drying process if the right steps aren't taken immediately upon discovering water damage or flooding.
The faster we respond and begin emergency services, the less chance for mold and mildew development, leading to serious health problems.
Water Damage Reno offers 24/7 live phone calls, so you know who to call whenever the damage occurs. We are also on our way within 45 minutes of your call, so you know help is on the way as quickly as possible.
There are many reasons why water damage happens, but how it happens can be broken down into four categories:
1. Overloaded Drains
Every sink and toilet has a trap attached to its drain, and this is where standing water will accumulate before going down to the sewer system. When too much debris gets inside the P-trap, it will back up and begin spilling out of the sink or bathtub overflow holes. The longer people wait before cleaning these traps, the more likely they will deal with significant replacement expenses.
2. Burst Pipes
Many people think that if their pipes are under the floor, they won't ever have a problem, that is not true! Just because a pipe is under a concrete slab doesn't mean it can't fail and burst, leaving you with a flooded crawlspace or destroyed hardwood floors.
3. Leaky Water Heater
Sometimes, the water temperature coming out of your water heater may drop below 120 degrees Fahrenheit which causes condensation to form inside the tank. This condensation accumulates on cold surfaces and will overflow once it reaches capacity. In addition, sometimes corrosion on the bottom allows for more water leakage beneath the tank, so replacing every five years or so will help prevent this from being an issue.
4. Broken Main Water Line
If a water line is not properly installed or maintained, it can have a blowout between the pipe entering the house and the city's main water supply. This kind of damage will take out an entire half of your home and cause major flooding, which needs to be dealt with swiftly to prevent mold growth.
