Water Damage

WHEN WATER DAMAGE OCCURS EVEN A FEW HOURS CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE IN SAVING EXPENSIVE CARPETS AND FURNITURE READ THIS TO MINIMIZE YOUR LOSSES…

AVOID HAZARDS! Your home has already suffered and the last thing you need is an injury. Be extremely careful of the deadly combination of water and electricity. Also when you’re walking around, wet carpets and floors are slippery, be cautious. Stay away from RAW SEWAGE backups because they contain nasty bacteria and can be harmful to your health.

STOP THE SOURCE! If you haven’t located the source of the water, call us immediately at 416-688-7187 and we will guide you through this (it is crucial to what to do). If you’ve stopped the source already …

TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION: By calling New Life Cleaning and Emergency Services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week Remember time is crucial so..after you have called us and we are one our way..you should..

REMOVE FURNITURE! Wood furniture will stain carpets and these stains cannot be removed. Rust stains from metal are extremely difficult to remove and may be permanent. Ninety-five percent of water damage jobs are restorable and of the 5% which aren’t restored, most are caused by not doing this. So either move furniture that’s even near water or place something under the legs.

Water Mitigation success depends on how quickly you respond

Water DamageYou may feel helpless when a property loss occurs, but acting quickly after a loss can often help minimize the damages. Any efforts to restore property and control the loss size are increased tenfold with early mitigation application. But, Emergency Mitigation involves much more than vacuuming up excess water, nailing up a few windows, or throwing a tarp on a roof. Some companies make great efforts in mitigation restoration. But as the case with scopes and estimates, the contents portions of the loss are often ignored or approached as an afterthought. Salituro Carpet 24 Hour Mitigation Analysis Process (MAP) approaches the mitigation from a different prospective. Our approach is to concentrate on both the structure and the contents portion of the loss concurrently which greatly enhances opportunities for saving more items. Often this increases the chance of restoration by 50% or more saving more indemnity dollars. The Sole goal is to mitigate the loss situation by stabilizing and preventing further damage.

Water DamageWith our MAP process, care is taken to take preventative measures to curtail the damaging effects. Metal finishes are treated and wood finishes stabilized until arrangements can be made to remove items for restoration. Wet drywall and insulation are removed to prevent secondary damage from water. Entire roof structures or portions of damage can be Shrink Wrapped to make a weather tight cover to mitigate loss and often save unaffected areas from secondary water damage. This greatly enhances the chance of restoration.

At the same time test cleaning can be performed on items to determine if they are salvageable. This enables more accurate scopes to be performed with more accurate reserves less supplemental estimates presented.

Time is of the essence when it comes to water mitigation.

  • Within minutes – Metal (nails, screws, corner beads) begins to rust
  • Within hours – Plywood de-laminates and particle board buckles. Furniture cracks, splits, warps and stains carpet. Dyes transfer from wall coverings and rugs.
  • Within days – Mildew appears along with “musty” odor. Electronics corrode and malfunction.
