Water Damage Restoration in Coeur d’Alene, ID


(888) 915-7197

Water damage is a serious issue when it occurs in a home or building, and it is also very common because of the ways it can occur.  Weather conditions like flooding and heavy rain are known to cause water damage, and it can also be caused by leaks, plumbing issues, burst pipes, and sewage backups.  Excess water can cause widespread damage as it gets absorbed in porous building materials and spreads through your property.  The spread and absorption of the water can lead to structural damage, electrical issues, and even mold growth.  You need to call a professional immediately once you discover water damage on your property.

Damage Caused by Water and Flooding in Coeur d’Alene, ID

Any amount of water from a leak to a flood has the potential to cause significant property damage.  This is because water gets absorbed into most common building materials, including drywall, wood, flooring, ceiling tiles, carpeting and furnishings, which allows the water to spread.  The building materials and furnishings that absorb the water can become stained, warped, and weakened, eventually leading to serious structural damage.

Another problem that is common following water damage is mold growth.  Areas and materials affected by water damage are vulnerable to mold growth because mold forms where there is an abundance of moisture.  The presence of mold will worsen the damage and put your health at risk.  There is also a chance that the water could be contaminated which creates a more dangerous situation.

Evaluation is key in determining how bad the damage is. Water damage can be deceiving: what on the surface looks like a simple problem can actually be a very big issue. At RestorationMaster, we are trained in creating individualized plans of action based on skilled evaluations. The extraction of the water is a key component for halting further damage. The more water that is sitting, the longer it will take to dry. What is worse, mold begins growing in moist areas as soon as three days after damage. Mold should be taken care of by a team trained in mold remediation to prevent further damage.

Drying is an essential step in the process for remediating a structure. We make use of fans and dehumidifiers to make sure your structure is completely dry. We also focus on drying any affected furniture that has been affected by the water. If the damage has extended to soaking drywall, we will do demolition to save what part of the wall we can. In typical cases of water damage, water will only be wicked up 18 inches into the drywall and a cut will have to be made at the 24 inch mark. This is done to prevent further damage to the drywall and to prevent mold from growing in the walls.

Getting Specific: Flooded Basements

When you’re faced with water damage in your home, the first thing to do is stop the flow of water. If you have a burst pipe, shut off the main valve. If you have a sump pump that’s backing up, make sure it’s turned off or disconnected from its power source.

Once this is done, it’s time to start cleaning up the mess. First, remove all furniture and other items from the room. Next, take all wet carpeting outside and lay it flat in the sun to dry—this will keep mold from forming on its surface. Finally, use a wet vac or shop vac to extract as much of the remaining water as possible from your carpeted area before replacing it with new padding and carpeting. If there is too much work for you to handle, its time to call in a professional.

Dealing with Sewage (Black Water Removal)

When you’re dealing with flooded carpet, it’s important to remember that it’s not just a mess. Flooded carpet can be dangerous and unhealthy.

Flood water is full of bacteria, viruses, and other germs that can cause disease and illness in humans. This means you should always be careful when removing flood water from carpet and that it’s important to take the proper steps to prevent getting sick from the flood water.

When removing flood water from carpet, use caution as you’re working through your home. If possible, have someone else help you remove the water so you can focus on safety first and foremost.
