A Guide to Water Damage Restoration Work for Your Surrey Home
Working with our team at Malkin Cleaners can help ensure that water damage restoration work is completed professionally in your Surrey home. We take pride in our work and will help you to understand each element of the cleaning and restoration process, giving you the information, you need to maintain the safety of your home.
Let’s begin by reviewing the leading causes of water damage:
When the pipes within your home begin to swell either due to changes in temperature or due to material aging, they may crack. Water then seeps through these cracks and enters your home. If you notice small puddles begin to develop underneath bathroom and basement piping areas, you must call our water damage restoration company quickly to asses and resolve the problem.
The optimal performance of guttering and downspouts is essential to move water away from your home. In our region of Canada, we experience significant rainfall throughout the fall, and this period is particularly damaging to home gutters. When a piece of your gutter breaks or clogs with leaves, the system will overflow, causing water to settle near your basement spaces in the home. Most basement floods are caused by this type of structural issue.
You might not know it immediately, but a clogged toilet or kitchen sink is a significant flooding risk. When a clog occurs, and the water is backed up, you may find you cannot control the flow of water into your home. Water may then back up through your shower drain and throughout your property. Turning to our experienced team can help ensure a swift resolution to this common home issue.

Tips for Resolving Water Damage in Your Surrey Home
Water intrusion is known to cause lasting damage to the structure of a home. Property owners with a significant water damage issue on their property must react promptly. Below are several tips for resolving water damage and working with your local Surrey restoration team.
First, disconnect the power
If the water impacts areas in which you have electrical equipment plugged in, make sure you turn off the power to these areas. Turn off the power at the fuse level rather than touching the plug and pulling the plug physically out of the wall in areas of water damage. The plug and wiring could be damaged by water and there could be a live current running through the equipment.
Keep animals and young children away
When you’ve experienced a water damage event, you’ll likely have to separate young children and pets away from the space for a short period of time. This can help you to assess the damage and begin the water damage restoration work in your Surrey home. Block the area off and ensure that any toys or pet litter boxes in the area are cleaned before being re-used.
Gather loose items from the floor
The water might have moved items such as clothing, newspapers, and magazines from tables onto the floor. Before the water damage restoration team arrives, ensure that their path to the damaged area is clear by removing any loose items from the floor. This will help to improve the efficiency of the company’s cleaning work and will limit the time it takes for the job to be completed.
If possible, remove upholstery and cushions from furniture
If any furniture has been damaged during the flood event, you might only have a limited time to ensure the furniture can be re-used in the future. Remove the upholstery and the cushions from your furniture and place them in a dry storage space ready for laundry. Our Surrey water damage restoration team can then dry the furniture underneath more easily, helping protect the piece for years to come.
