As a disaster restoration company with extensive industry experience, our team at On-Deck Restoration LLC handles a wide array of restoration problems, from mold removal to wind and water damage. We also receive plenty of questions regarding our restoration services.
Here are answers to three of the most commonly asked questions about water damage restoration:
- What causes of water damage? The primary causes of water damage in a home include natural disasters, leaking pipes, plumbing mishaps, faulty appliances, exposed water supply lines, and septic tank overflows.
- How long does water damage repair take? On average, it takes 72 hours for water-damaged surfaces to dry up, but it can take up to several weeks, depending on the extent of the damage. If the affected area is soaked, it’ll take longer than when damage is surface-level. How long it takes also depends on the drying method. When you rely on air drying, it may take up to a month if the area is soaked, but when you call on our experts for water removal, it’ll take less time since we use professional drying strategies and equipment.
- Who should I call first between a flood damage company and my insurance provider? When water damage occurs, you should seek water restoration first before your insurance provider. This way, we’ll conduct an inspection and have a quote ready by the time your insurance provider responds, speeding up the compensation process.
