Signs of Water Damage in Your Home
If you’re considering calling our West Vancouver water damage restoration team, you might have already noticed water damage in your home. But for some homeowners, the signs of a potential water damage issue can be difficult to identify.
Let’s review some of the clear signs that it’s time to call a restoration professional for your West Vancouver home:
- Water marks on the walls and ceiling
If you have water stains on the walls or ceiling of your home, it could be a sign that an interior pipe is leaking and has been damaged for some time. Ceilings below bathrooms and walls within the kitchen space are particularly common areas for water marks.
- Rising water costs
If you experience rising water costs within your home, you likely have a leak somewhere in the property that has either caused damage or has the potential to do so. Make sure you take the time to consult with our team directly if you have a question about spikes in your monthly water bills.
- Musty odors
After a flood or other water emergency, you may smell musty odors inside your home, even after you’ve cleaned the property comprehensively. Oftentimes, the musty odor is related to mold-growth that occurs when moisture settles in the property after a water damage event.
How to Safeguard Your Home in the Event of Water Damage
Now you know a little more about how to determine the signs of water damage on your property, it’s important to take the time to learn how to safeguard your home when you identify it. Consider the following to keep your home safe until our trusted West Vancouver water damage restoration team arrives:
- Turn off the main water supply
If you have access to the main water supply of your household, you should turn off the flow of water to prevent further water damage.
- Remove property from water-damaged areas
If you can do so safely, remove items such as furniture and clothing away from the water-damaged room in the home. This will help to limit the amount of restoration work our team performs and save time in the restoration process.
- Block off the damaged area
You can then block off the damaged area to the home temporarily so that pets and small children cannot access it. If there’s no door separating the space from the rest of the home, try to block the area with plywood and other sturdy materials.
Call Malkin Cleaners
Once you’ve completed these steps, call our team at Malkin Cleaners to handle the rest of the restoration process. We’ll begin the work immediately upon arriving at your West Vancouver home.
How Malkin Cleaners Restores Local Homes
For many decades, our team has been known as the trusted partner for homeowners seeking water damage restoration work. Our process has been honed over these years to ensure the ideal return on investment for homeowners.
We offer a professional restoration strategy that includes the following steps:
When you call our team, we’ll begin by conducting a comprehensive inspection of your property. We’ll look for the signs of water damage and trace the damage to its source.
- Water Removal
We’ll then begin removing the water from your home. We’ll use powerful pumps and vacuums to complete the water removal process efficiently and effectively.
We’ll then begin the structural drying process. During this time, we’ll also begin dehumidification to minimize the amount of moisture in the air.
With the drying process complete, we’ll move forward to the cleaning work. This involves cleaning and sanitizing personal belongings to minimize bacterial growth. We often use air scrubbers during this time to ensure clean air is distributed throughout the entire home.
Our restoration team then goes to work replacing water damaged elements such as drywall and insulation. This process could be as simple as replacing a few pieces of drywall, or it could involve replacing entire structural walls in the property.
The final part of our work is the analysis of the restoration process. We’ll go through your home together with you and examine each area of the property in detail to showcase our workmanship.
