Water Damage Repair & Restoration
While flooding is an obvious issue which can’t be ignored, everyday leaks can actually be more problematic. You will usually notice a large broken pipe quickly (and you should deal with it quickly), but a small leak in a pipe that’s hidden behind a wall can drip for years until the damage finally becomes apparent. Sometimes when a wall is opened it reveals a field of mold, mildew and rot which also lead to airborne bacteria – the reasons your family has been sick so frequently.
Mold is actually a catch-all phrase for a variety of fungi. Certain fungi found in mold will merely make you sneeze, but other fungi can cause asthma, or even weaken your immune system leading to serious health issues. For those who already have compromised immune systems, exposure to mold can even lead to death. There is scientific conjecture, for instance, that actress Brittany Murphy died from pneumonia caused by exposure to mold growth in her home.
If you or others in your home or building have any of the following symptoms, you may have a water leak which is causing mold to proliferate:
- Frequent runny nose and sinus congestion
- Itchy, watery eyes which feel better when out of the structure
- Coughing and throat irritation
- Frequent sneezing sessions
- Breathing problems with wheezing
Water damage of any type must be dealt with quickly. If water had the ability to carve the Grand Canyon, imagine what it can do to a building. Don’t delay. If you suspect there is a water leak somewhere in your home or building, contact us to arrange for testing.
Flood Damage Restoration & Cleanup
Flash floods are a way of life in Meridian. This is because our sun-baked ground is so hard that it can only absorb a limited amount of water when rain does come. Normally rainy locations like Seattle can handle several inches of rain over a day or two without major problems, but an inch of rain in Meridian often causes serious flooding. Massive floods with only 3.74 inches of rain – can fill nearly 100,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools. That is a tremendous amount of water by anyone’s standards, and it can cause a massive amount of damage in a short period of time.
If you suffer from flood damage, it is critical that you don’t just wait for the water to fully recede. The severity of water damage to a structure is determined primarily by how long the water is allowed to sit. The longer you wait to take action, more and more water will seep into the wood framing and flooring of a structure. That will cause serious warping, mold infestation and could potentially damage the structural integrity of the building. Hours can make a difference, which is why Action 1 Restoration of Meridian offers 24-hour emergency flood damage service.

Sewage Cleanup Services
Sewage cleanup and restoration in Meridian is typically a much larger project than a normal water damage problem and there are extra precautions, equipment and procedures that need to be followed for sewer damage. A broken sewage pipe or backed-up sewer system is the stuff of nightmares; the damage and mess is horrendous, and the smell is even worse. If sewage gets into your home or building, it can cause a number of practical problems as well as severe health risks.
You should never try to clean up sewage on your own. Sewage is a toxic mixture of urine, fecal matter, viruses, bacteria and other materials which are extremely risky to your health. For example, e. coli is commonly found in sewage water and should only be dealt with by trained professionals wearing appropriate safety clothing. This threat is not something to take lightly. Cleaning up sewage when you have a cut on your arm, for instance, is an invitation to a week-long hospital stay while doctors flood your system with antibiotics.
From a practical perspective, sewage cleanup requires an initial investigation into the cause of the problem, followed by full repairs. You certainly do not want to deal with a second sewage spill. Fortunately, a broken sewage pipe is easy for us to identify and fix. If the problem is less obvious, we will employ a variety of techniques and equipment to identify and fix the problem.
Next comes sewage cleanup, which can only be described as a nasty job. Depending on volume, we may use pumps and industrial wet vacuums to start the job, and the remaining bits of sewage will be removed by hand. The area must then be treated with disinfectants to eliminate the residual fungi, bacteria and viruses. It is a lengthy process which must be done by experts in protective gear to avoid infection or contamination.
Cost of Water Damage in Meridian, ID
Our company provides no cost estimates to give you an idea of precisely what the cost of a water damage clean up in Meridian, ID is going to run. Keep in mind these types of clean up projects are actually insurance claims. We work with your insurance company and we will file your claim for you. Keep a list of damaged items for each and every room. Be absolutely certain nothing is overlooked, since you may be unable to make any additions. As you are inventorying your damaged items, make sure you get the following:
- when you purchased it
- how much it cost
- serial number
- how it is damaged
If you have receipts or images that go along with your ruined items, you should attach all of them with your itemized replacement estimate.
To know the way water damage specialists price a job, you must know about the different variables that can affect the estimate. A majority of water damage is in fact the result of a busted or frozen water line behind your walls or in the attic. A substantial factor is the quantity of water that needs to be removed and the dry out time to dry the property. Keep in mind that water enters areas of your residence that aren’t predicted causing damage that needs restored and cleaned. A few of these places can be: your roof, ceilings, walls, electrical, carpet, flooring, cabinets and drywall. You can experience more than one hundred gallons of water in twenty four hours from a minor break in a major pipe in your home. Naturally, the more water the contractor has to remove from the affected region, the larger the cost is going to be.
