Water damage, either from a natural disaster or a broken pipe, can completely blindside you and cause major damage to your property. When the unexpected happens you can rely on Third Generation Builders LLC. Count on us to provide high-quality water damage restoration services.

How long does water restoration take?

This really depends on the extent of the damage. For instance, if your basement has been flooded then it will take longer. The water needs to be pumped out because basements usually lack a drainage system.

Once the water is removed then the real work begins. Wet baseboards and door casings will have to be removed. Holes will have to be bored into walls and ceiling cavities to begin the drying process, and wet or contaminated insulation will have to be removed. Dehumidifiers and air movers are then used to get rid of the excess moisture. This whole process can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Everything depends on the extent of the damage and how quickly a water damage team was called in to fix the problem. Don’t wait to repair water damage.

Why should I call a restoration service as soon as possible?

The importance of having a quick response lies in what is called “secondary water damage”. Secondary water damage results from the excess moisture in the air which will saturate its surroundings. Drywall will sag or buckle, and ceiling tiles will lose their shape. Also, floors boards will become separated from their base.

Another major issue due to water damage is the possibility of unhealthy black mold. If your property is not thoroughly dried then the interior of your walls, ceilings, and floors can become contaminated and produce mold. Mold can eventually make everyone on the premises very sick.
