Water Damage Restoration
Water damage can spell disaster for your home. Water leaks from pipes or rainwater and the subsequent damage it causes can cause a number of problems for owners of residential and commercial property. However, we can often prevent long term damage if we treat it quickly and address the source of the problem. We’re specialists in stopping water damage in its tracks. We work with real speed, understanding the importance of dealing with water damage quickly. Unfortunately, the damage to your home can often be worse than that which is visible to the naked eye. If you don’t treat this damage, it might lead to mould growth and dry rot. In severe cases, the water might have caused structural damage to your property.
There are a range of common causes as to why you might require restoration of features in your home that have suffered water damage. For instance, when too much pressure is applied to pipes, there is a risk that they will burst. Whilst the materials used for residential and commercial plumbing systems are constructed to withstand large levels of pressure, they are not indestructible. A second common issue that we often face at Restoration and Construction Pro’s is corrosion. Corroding pipes might be caused by chemicals in the water, the water's temperature or even its pressure! In fact, we can say with near certainty that pipe corrosion is almost always related to water quality. Not to worry, our trained professionals can have a look at the issue and identify what has happened!

In the case of most water damage, your property will need to undergo a process called ‘drying’. Just imagine a scenario wherein a pipe in your walls were to burst in your bathroom, flooding the room with water and causing water damage in the adjacent rooms. Before Restoration and Construction Pro’s were able to begin the restoration work your property requires, we will need to dry out all affected areas. There are a range of modern techniques for this; if water damage was only slight, then a dehumidifier could be sufficient. A dehumidifier will also help to speed up the drying process and put an immediate stop to the spread of damage caused by the water.
