Professional water damage restoration contractor serving residential and commercial clients in Lancaster, CA and surrounding areas.
Suffering from water damage in your home can be an awful experience. Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation. The detection of water in these areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters. Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage. This damage, at a minimum, will cause odors. Greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to where costly repairs are required. More than just removing excess water, qualified restorers have the knowledge and equipment to further dry a home or building (including sub-structure materials) completely back to pre-loss conditions. Through timely response and the careful monitoring of water damage, mold and other health issues can be prevented. If water damage has been present too long, mold will occur. Our qualified professional water damage restoration team in Lancaster, CA has the training and experience to identify moisture sources, evaluate mold growth (visible or suspected), contain damage, remove contamination and dry materials to ensure that mold will not return.
Misconstrued flooring – When your sub-floor experiences excessive amounts of water due to a flood or leaking pipes, it can totally mess up with your floors. Tile adhesives can become loose without any explanation or noticeable wetness, linoleum peels and laminate will likely warp. Damage to wood floors is thankfully easier. When you notice anything except perfectly flat wood floors, you have an immediate issue.
Peeling, bubbling and discoloration – If you notice the paint is peeling, or any stains on your ceiling, you have a water leak. You will need to find the source of the water that’s landing on your ceiling. This is common on lower floors of structures beneath bathrooms or other areas that have water fixtures on the floor above.
A musty odor – Your body can sense it! For water damage that is invisible, fear not your nose and lungs can detect it! Does your structure have a “must” to the air? You likely have a moisture issue that needs to be addressed. You will want to call the professionals for water damage repair and inquire about their services immediately.
You see mold – The moment you see strange colors on your walls or ceilings —you have a BIG problem. Common places mold is found are: behind appliances, under sinks, around A/C units, windows, carpets, and EVEN BEHIND YOUR WALLS! If the mold is found on a non-porous surface, such as glass, tile and hard plastic you can clean the surface by yourself with some strong disinfectant. However, on sheetrock, ceiling tiles, and carpeting which are all porous surfaces, you MUST call a professional water damage restoration company in Lancaster to perform water damage clean up of your home.
