Water Damage Restoration
Property owners face many obstacles when it comes to keeping their property functioning smoothly. One of the most common obstacles is property damage. Damage to your property comes in many forms, but water damage is the most common type owners experience. No matter if it’s a small leak that leads to bigger problems or a pipe burst causing instant flooding, the impact is devastating.

Navigating Your Water Damage Restoration
Taking care of your water damage restoration in Seattle needs may seem overwhelming and in untrained hands, it certainly can be. However, we have used the experience we have gained over the years to establish a tried and true process to make your water restoration a stress-free endeavor.
The first thing we do after arriving is start with our visual inspection. Our inspection helps determine the scope and severity of your water damage.

Once the property is dried we start working on the repairs needed for your property so you can get back to regular life as quickly as possible. Cutting corners isn’t an option with water damage. Failure to do the job right the first time can lead to the need for mold removal services.

Frozen Pipes Equal Flood Cleanup
Every year, the coldest time of the year happens. That time is winter. In the middle of winter, everything outside and even inside can freeze when it gets too cold. Your pipes are at the most risk during this cold time of year and if not protected against, can become frozen pipes. Frozen pipes keep the water within from flowing, which creates a buildup of pressure.
When the frozen pipe sustains pressure for too long it can lead to pipe bursts. Pipe bursts result in a explosion of water in the immediate area. This is results in flooding. At that point, you need professional flood cleanup services to address the damage. Not only is there a greater risk of structural damage, but the water in the pipes can cause health problems for the inhabitants as well.
Water from pipes can either be gray water or black water depending on the type of pipe that bursts. Gray water has debris, dirt, and other materials in it which make cleaning and removal more difficult. Black water is known as such because it contains raw waste. This water comes from a burst sewer pipe.
With either type of water, it can cause health issues both directly and indirectly. Mold can grow much quicker with contaminated water creating additional problems. That’s why prompt action is required with a pipe burst. Between the need for flood cleanup and mold removal, there is no time to waste.
Regardless of how it happens, if you’re suffering from a pipe burst, don’t hesitate to call 911 Restoration. We are fully trained and certified to handle all emergency restorations from water damage and mold removal to sewage cleanup and fire damage restoration. Call today for your Fresh Start!
