Differences between exterior and interior water damages

Many people do not know it, but the procedures required to solve a water damage problem vary a lot, depending not only on how contaminated the water is, but where the problem has happened: the methods to take care of a water damage problem are very different when working on surfaces outside or if the affected areas are located inside a property.

Tip Top Restoration is prepared to respond professionally, intelligently, effectively and practically to any water damage situation. The most important thing is to solve this kind of problems as soon as possible. Many people believe that they can take care of this kind of situations and solve them by themselves. However, it is necessary to remember that this is not a minor job, and therefore requires the specialized knowledge of a professional company that has both the necessary equipment to do the job in the best possible way, as well as highly trained personnel. Do it professionally.

How we work? We share a little of what our work processes are like and that you can have more clarity about our methods. If you hire a company to do this kind of work and they are not able to explain your methods and processes, you are probably not dealing with a professional, and the best thing to do is to keep searching before entrusting your time, your privacy and your money.

Interior tasks: We try to get there in a hour when the water damage is inside your property. Our technicians will vacuum water up and use an ‘extractor’ to remove water from timber flooring. Furniture will be removed from affected regions or put up on blocks. If the water damage is out of dirty water, carpeting will probably need to get thrown off, however if the water remains clean we will dry the carpet if we could. Carpet pads have been thrown away since it’s cheaper to replace than wash them. When there is water damage impacting a wall we will remove the baseboard and drill small holes in the walls. This will allow air movement to dry the wall.

Exterior tasks: First we turn off your water. We vacuum up water so that everything is not any longer soaking wet. In case the problem was caused by a broken pipe, then we’ll make sure that a plumber can access the pipe and make the repair. Once the pipe is repaired we will get rid of the contaminated soil, spray anti-microbial and replace the bad soil using fresh , fresh soil.

We invite you to get in touch with us if you have any questions about our services. Do not leave this kind of important work in inexperienced hands. Trust the best: you will not regret it.
