When your property is flooded due to leaky pipes, a burst pipe, damaged appliances, malfunctioning water heaters, and more, you need water extraction and disaster clean-up services as soon as possible.
The remediation process on water damage should begin within 24-48 hours; when water invades a structure, time is of the essence.

Following this time frame and using proper cleaning and drying techniques will also protect your home or property from mold growth.
Allphase Restoration has the equipment and experience to be on the spot quickly and deal with the water before more damage is done.
When water damage occurs at your home, it’s crucial to prevent further damage from occurring. Take a look at some tasks you should do to prevent more wreckage and some things you should avoid.
When water damage occurs in your house, it’s important to act quickly and take the right steps to keep everyone safe and prevent further damage.
Turn off the main valve to the whole house, if needed. If you don’t know where it is or how to do it, now is the time to learn. Ask a spouse, plumber, handyman, neighbor, or anyone who may know. It will save you a lot of grief later. Even a few minutes saved will make a large difference and subsequently cut down on the time it takes to clean the water up.
Turn off any breakers to the affected rooms and unplug any electrical appliances until you know for certain they are safe. Watch your step as mud and water can be slippery. Rescue the most valuable items and sentimental things first. In this situation, time is of the essence.
Depending on whether you are dealing with water damage from a storm or from a flood, cover any holes in the roof or move vulnerable items to higher ground. If it’s not possible to move large furniture, put wood blocks or styrofoam under them, as rust and furniture marks are the hardest to remove from carpet.
How much water got in the house? You can probably handle small to medium amounts of “clean water” (rain or tap water) on hard surfaces and floors.
Call your insurance agent if the water damage is beyond your scope. AllPhase Restoration can also help with the insurance claims process if need be.
If you can, sweep out, mop, and vacuum as much water as possible, and wash and dry any fabrics. Get as many fans as you can to start air movement. If the carpets have gotten wet, it is crucial to call a professional water damage restoration company immediately, since water can run underneath the surface and cause water damage problems later, such as mildew, mold, and bad odors.
If your water damage problems stem from rising floodwaters or unsanitary sources, such as tubs or sinks, it is called “gray water,” and precautions must be taken. Use gloves and rubber boots, and use disinfectants on surfaces during and after the drying process. If you have sewage on your property, it’s important to use extreme caution. Keep pets and children away from the area, as this is a health hazard — the pollutants in this “black water” have been known to kill. You must hire professional help. All carpeting and padding must be thrown away, sheetrock must be removed and disposed of, and remaining materials must be disinfected and sanitized.
If there is an unusual amount of water, or several hours have passed before you found the water damage, it probably means that the water damage has started to permeate the walls. A professional is needed to handle this kind of water damage repair. AllPhase Restoration can apply anti-microbial cleaners (chemicals to prevent mold from forming and deodorize at the same time) to all surfaces and even into drywall spaces.
