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

home-and-commercial-restorationFlash floods are a way of life in Pocatello. 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 Pocatello 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 Pocatello offers 24-hour emergency flood damage service.

Sewage Cleanup Services

Sewage cleanup and restoration in Pocatello 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 Tornado Storm Damage IXexample, 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.

Idaho Average Water Damage Cost
To get an idea on how our local experts produce an estimation, you need to understand about several considerations that determines the estimation. First of all you need to be aware that many water damage is attributed to freezing or burst pipes. How high the water level reached in your residence is another factor we look at during the quote. This determines just how much water that needs to be extracted and if the drywall has soaked up a lot of water. The one thing you must bear in mind is that water may result in extensive damage not only to the roof and basement, but in addition to your ceilings, furniture, appliances, carpets, cabinets and walls. If your water line splits even slightly, it has the chance to release more than a 100 gallons of water in just 24 hours. With large amounts of water, our specialists will have to charge more for the removal and dry out than smaller amounts of water. Normally, the greater quantities of water we are filling an insurance claim for you with your insurance company.
