You may or may not know how the water got into your house. Some sources are more obvious than others. Each water source comes with its own challenges. Don’t worry, though. We’ve handled all of them.
A leaky pipe causes long-lasting damage over time. This type of water damage is often the easiest to remove. However, since it’s more subtle than other types of water issues, you may not notice it for a long time, which can lead to some deep damage.
Out of all the different types of water that can show up, groundwater causes the most confusion for homeowners. It arrives seemingly out of nowhere. One day, you have a dry basement. The next day, you step into a surprise swimming pool on your way to do the laundry. Underground water levels rise and fall. When groundwater rises high enough, it pushes itself into your basement.
North Carolina gets its fair share of storms, and some of those storms can bring flooding into your house. When flood water shows up, it doesn’t bother with being subtle. Removing flood water takes time, dedication, and high waterproof boots.
Unfortunately, water damage is far from just a cosmetic issue. It brings some very real dangers into your home. Even water that looks harmless can threaten your family’s health and wellness. Take a look at some of these examples.
Water activates mold, which can harm your family’s health. If anyone in your household has allergies or asthma, mold can aggravate those issues. The longer the water stays, the worse the problem becomes.
BACTERIA & TOXINS
If your water damage came from a leaky pipe, you won’t have to worry about bacteria and toxins getting into the house. However, if the water came from outside the house, it could have brought in an entire host of harmful substances. These substances may include sewage and gasoline. If you have standing water in your home, make sure that you and your family stay away from it.
When your home has water damage, you may feel powerless.But you can take a few different steps to protect your house and family.

WATER REMOVAL & DRYING
If necessary, we’ll start by removing the standing water from your house. Our industrial-grade pumps and fans will help us dry your home quickly.
During your restoration, we’ll take care of the hard surfaces. Water can damage hard surfaces in several different ways. Water can stain walls, for instance. It can also warp and bend wood floors. We can fix these issues and make those hard surfaces look like new.
Carpets, couches, and other upholstery items can take the brunt of water damage. In some cases, we’ll help you replace carpets and furniture. In other cases, we can save the furniture thanks to deep drying and stain removal. We won’t know for sure until we assess the situation, so make sure that you call us as soon as you can.
If you’ve had standing water in your house for a long time, you probably also have mold. Like we said, mold can aggravate existing health problems. The best thing to do is get rid of it right away. After the drying process, we’ll check for mold and get rid of any that we find.

Remember the sewage and bacteria that we mentioned before? The health hazards don’t go away just because the water has gone. We won’t let those toxins stick around long enough to make your family sick. If you have standing water thanks to a flood or groundwater, we’ll disinfect the entire area after we remove the water.
