Our Water Restoration Team Skillfully Protects Dallas Real Estate
New & Old Homes Need Water Restoration Experts
Ensuring your home's security includes protecting it from destructive elements such as wind, microbial infestation, and fire. Water intrusion or leaks can also cause harm to your Dallas residence and subsequently lead to the development of even worse conditions. Our water restoration team can protect your property.
Many homeowners of newly built homes in Dallas might think water restoration services are decades in the future. Unfortunately, the age of your home is not the only risk factor for sustaining a disaster. It only takes one small leak to soak the floors of a new house's great room.
Water restoration follows mitigation, protecting a home from destructive moisture. Rebuilding often must occur, to one degree or another. Certain characteristics of your home might affect the work performed by our restoration specialists, such as:
- Construction practices,
- Types of materials used, and
- The extent of hidden water.
Because of the costs involved, the modular style of commercial buildings and homes is drastically increasing. Modular homes can present different restoration requirements from traditional housing. With a modular house, insulation and framing may vary in different parts of the house, resulting in the need for a different response. Other materials can also face similar situations.
Some homes contain more absorbent grades of drywall, allowing moisture to wick upwards faster. These require us to remove larger areas of the drywall than with less porous types like soundproofing wallboard or greenboard used in bathrooms. Paint and wallpapers covering the drywall also create a moisture barrier that traps water inside, preventing air currents from pulling moisture out of the sheet. Plaster is more porous than drywall, making it susceptible to greater damage. Other materials that pose problems are paneling, ceiling tiles, and some flooring types.
Hidden water is located within enclosed areas or has bonded into materials like wood or concrete. Our moisture detection equipment can find these places, allowing us to keep your restoration project on course.
