The IICRC is widely known and accepted as the organization that sets the standards for the cleaning, inspection, and restoration industries. Types of Apartment Water Problems You can experience an apartment water problem for any number of reasons. GET RESTORATION EXPERTS is equipped to handle them all. We will repair water problems that occur as a result of: Clogged or backed-up toilets Faucet drips and leaks Overflowing bathtubs Fire alarm sprinkler systems Faulty appliances – dishwashers and washing machines Storm flooding A leaky roof Burst pipes Water damage in an apartment building can lead to other issues that, if not properly treated, will escalate and make repairs that much more extensive. For example, if water is not completely extracted and the affected area dried, you risk the possibility of a mold or mildew infestation in the apartment or building. Another problem can occur when a leak occurs on an upper floor. The water has no place to go but down, and will get trapped in ceilings where it soaks into the ceiling materials. The danger exists when the ceiling becomes too heavy and drops to the floor below. Lastly, there is always a risk of electrocution when someone goes into a water-damaged room before the electricity has been cut. For these and other reasons, call a professional with the experience to fully take care of any type of apartment water problem. Once onsite, the GET RESTORATION EXPERTS team puts its proven water cleanup process to work. We first assess the situation to fully understand the extent of the problem. Is it in just one apartment? Has water leakage spread to other floors? When we know exactly what we’re dealing with, we form an appropriate course of action. Your, and our, safety is paramount. We wear safety and hazard gear, and take all necessary precautions against unsafe and unsanitary conditions. We categorize the type of water depending on the amount of bacteria and biohazards it may contain, and document every area in the building where the water damage has extended. We use professional-grade equipment to extract the water directly to our truck. This ensures the water does not come into contact with any other surface in the building. If personal items or building furnishings have been destroyed, for example, due to flooding of unsanitary water, we remove them from the premises and dispose of them through proper channels. Furniture removal includes carpet and carpet pad, drywall, insulation, and other items made of porous materials. Items that can be salvaged will be inventoried and moved to our facility for proper drying, cleaning, and sanitizing. During the drying-out stage, we place high-powered fans and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry floors and carpeting, walls, and the entire area affected by the water damage. With specialized moisture detection equipment, we test every area of every floor to make sure we have completely eliminated all moisture and dampness from the building. In basements, storerooms, HVAC areas, and other dark or hidden places, we double check for dampness and take steps to treat for mold, to make sure no mold grows.
