Water and Fire Damage and Restoration

Water Damage and Restoration

Many homes experience water damage to some degree. The majority of these types of damages are a result of some type of plumbing failure. When flood damage occurs, it’s important that you locate a trained professional to help fix the problem right. Water damage is progressive and items that could be restored within the first 48 hours may not be restored if emergency response is delayed. Although you might be tempted to use a shop vacuum or call a company that only has equipment to dry carpet, you should consider that water will wick up walls and travel under base molding and sill plates. It will penetrate through floor coverings into sub-floors, even causing much damage to rooms below.

In addition, if humidity inside the structure is not controlled, items that were not damaged from the original flood damage could be damaged as a result of absorbing moisture from the air. Structures that are not dried out quickly and properly can become a food source for mold growth which may require professional mold removal.

Our Flood Damage Restoration Professionals are trained on current procedures, such as Rapid Structural Drying, to dry your entire structure as quickly as possible, using state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Moisture meters are used to locate moisture that may not be visible or may be hidden behind walls or cabinets, so that our Water Damage Restoration Service Professionals can ensure that all wet materials are dry. Because we understand how important it is to react quickly in the unfortunate event of water damage, smoke damage, or fire damage, you can rely on Rainbow International to provide emergency response and quick professional service 24-hours a day.

In the event of flood damage, do the following:

  • Stay calm! Call IPQ Construction.
  • Make sure the water source is turned off. This will help contain the damage.
  • Turn off the breaker in the damaged area before you unplug or remove any electrical devices located on the wet carpet.
  • Place aluminum foil under the legs of any furniture which is in contact with wet carpet. This might help prevent furniture stains on your carpet.
  • Lift draperies away from wet carpet.
  • Pin up upholstered furniture skirts which may get wet.
  • Remove books, shoes, paper goods, fabrics, potted plants, and other items which may stain wet carpet.

Do not attempt the following:

  • Don’t use your home vacuum, since electrical shock may result, as well as certain damage to the equipment itself.
  • Don’t place newspaper in traffic areas to walk on, since newspaper ink transfers easily to the wet carpet fibers and may result in permanent staining.
  • Don’t walk on carpet any more than necessary. This will keep the damage from spreading to unaffected areas.

Smoke and Fire Restoration

In the unfortunate event that you experience fire damage in your home, you should callĀ  us for professional fire restoration service. It is important that the cleanup begins as soon as possible. Smoke residues are acidic in nature and with time they will cause surfaces to corrode and stain permanently. Smoke residues that were pressurized during the fire will permeate cracks and crevices of building materials and deposit odor-causing residues.

Fire restoration service professionals will work quickly to stop the smoke damage and restore your home and contents back to pre-fire condition by using cleaning systems and equipment that will help eliminate costly replacement of restorable items.

Smoke odors can be difficult to remove due to its penetration and absorption into building materials. Rainbow International’s fire restoration service providers have the knowledge, products and equipment to permanently remove these stubborn odors. Place your our phone number next to your emergency numbers and call us for an estimate of smoke damage restoration in the event of smoke or fire damage.
