Water Extraction Services
For industry-leading and fast-response commercial and residential water extraction, look no further than the trained professionals at CRS. Our certified technicians have over 80 years of combined service experience and specialize in extracting water from floors and walls after a sudden flood, burst pipe, drain backup, appliance malfunction, or from firefighters extinguishing a fire. Not all water damage occurs as quickly as a flood or burst pipe. Some water damage can take weeks or months to develop by slowly building up in ceilings, walls, and floors and can only be visible from such things as peeling paint, condensation, mold stains, musty odors, and damp or wet carpets, rugs, and mattresses. Our technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to detect and extract water and dry all affected areas before the onset of dangerous mold that generally always follows interior water damage.
Steps to Take When You Discover Water Damage
It can be overwhelming when you discover water damage on your property and there are several steps that need to be taken to mitigate the damage. When possible, identify the source of the water and turn it off. Take photos of the damage and document all of the affected items. Call us now to arrive quickly on site to provide a free evaluation and recommended the next steps including assisting you in the claims handling process.
Types of Water Damage
There are three categories of water damage: Clean, grey, and black. Clean water damage comes from overflowing sinks and bathtubs and generally poses a minimal health risk. Grey water, which can be leaked from toilets and appliances, can contain chemical, biological, or physical contaminants and can lead to sickness in humans and pets. Black water, which can come from sewage and floodwaters, poses the greatest risk to humans and pets because it contains dangerous pathogens. All three types of interior water damage will result in the formation and growth of mold in as little as 48 hours if not professionally cleaned and dried.
Water Damage Restoration Services
Our water damage technicians are professionally trained to extract water, dry, mitigate and stabilize your water damaged property. We react quickly to save your valuable and irreplaceable belongings from further damage by using industry-grade equipment to remove standing water quickly and effectively. During extraction, our technicians take moisture readings before, during, and after the cleanup to monitor the drying progress. Valuable items, such as collectibles, paintings, and antiques, can be taken to our main facility to be carefully cleaned, dried, and repaired to the highest standard available for wood, fabric, and metals suffering from water damage.
How Fast are the Services and is the Equipment Loud?
Our technicians can be at your North or South Carolina water damage property location in as little as an hour. The cleanup service can take anywhere from several hours to several days to complete, depending on the scope of the damage. Some of the equipment we use, while state-of-the-art, can be intrusive, and despite any disruptions to your business, it is recommended that you allow our team and equipment to thoroughly complete the work. All our technicians are committed to excellent service and complete customer satisfaction and each team member is a certified water damage technician who receives continuing education.
How Much Will Water Extraction Cost?
No two water disasters are alike, and our extractions service fees are based on several factors: the time of day, the size of the affected area, the severity of the damage, and the class of water damage, and category of water- clean, grey, or black. For many, a water disaster is something that may only happen once and unless you have experienced water damage before, you will want help in dealing with your insurance company. Water damage claims can be underestimated, which can lead to the claim being lowballed or even rejected. Contents Restoration Services has years of experience in dealing with insurance companies and can handle all your insurance claims on your behalf.
