How Restorations Work and How Long They Take

After you have experienced water damage in your Tempe home, it can be a very confusing time that requires professional restoration.

If you have never dealt with anything like this before you are probably just thinking all you have to do is dry up the water.

In theory that makes sense because without water, how can you get water damage? But it couldn’t be further from the truth.

Unless as soon as it happened you instantly fixed the source and cleaned up the water immediately, it just doesn’t work that way.

Once water damage has affected you it starts to form mold and create awful smells in your home.

It also discolors furniture and warps the structure of your house. This can lead to issues because repairing stuff like this certainly isn’t free.

First Steps Involved In Water Damage Restoration

Restoring your property after water damage in Tempe usually begins with assessing the damage.

When it comes to damage the first thing they look for is mold. Mold is a big issue when it comes to water damage and usually comes with the bill.

It can start somewhere small and then spread all throughout your home.

It wouldn’t be a big issue if it only did that, but mold also can cause tremendous respiratory damage as well as general damage to your house.

Once water damage has taken place, that smell that you can’t seem to shake off is probably coming from mold hidden somewhere in your home.

Mold has a smell that you can’t miss. Your home shouldn’t normally smell like this, so you should be instantly alarmed when you start to detect this unforgivable odor.

Mold removal tends to be a mildly long process but it is necessary for you to be able to live in your home. 

Before The Mold

Before they can target the mold in your Tempe home they need to test it. Which requires very specific technology that some businesses don’t have access to.

But, that is where ASAP Restoration saves the day. We have access to all of the technology needed to professionally and effectively rid your home of mold.

Testing the mold gives us a better understanding of what we are up against, enabling us to fix the problem more efficiently.

To get rid of mold we will usually apply a substance that kills mold spores and prevents more mold from popping up.

Once we complete that, we will sanitize the area and ensure we fix the source of the leak or water damage to prevent it from causing any more issues.

Hardest Parts of Water Damage Restoration

The hard part of returning back to normal after water damage in Tempe isn’t the mold. It is the large effect it has on your finances.

If your water damage was only minor then the loss to your finances will only be minor.

If the water infiltration you experienced was from black water then you are going to have a hefty bill to pay for.

The differences in water can be chalked up to different prices.

The harder it is to fix the issue the more money it will cost you. And black water can be the costliest to repair after a damage incident. 

Preparing for Water Damage Restoration Work

When preparing to restore a home from water damage in Tempe, you must first look at the furniture.

Some furniture may not have been affected but the ones that have been touched need to be inspected.

That is where a professional team like ASAP Restoration comes into play.

They can decide whether affected furniture is salvageable or not. Then they will advise you on whether you should replace it or repair it.

Repairing furniture can be a big expense. Sometimes replacing the furniture is the better option.

It also takes a very long time to fully restored damaged furniture. Not only is it money consuming but it is also very time-consuming.

Final Stages of Water Damage Restorations

When mold affects furniture and it becomes unsalvageable, the team will take it away and remove it from your home.

If water seeps into your walls, a demolition team will need to take out those walls.

A construction team will come and fix everything once the inside has completely dried.

They will seal everything in your home to add a double layer of protection against the elements.

This entire process can take up to weeks to even months. It is important to have a place to stay when all of this is happening.

This way you can still be comfortable and able to resume a normal life. We care about you and want to ensure you are prepared for situations like these.
