Inland Empire Water Damage Repair
Trust Our Expert Plumbers at Schuelke Plumbing
Water damage can cause an expensive headache and long-lasting problems. Not only can your personal property be affected, but the structure of your home or business itself may be compromised, lessening its value and leading to hidden and not-so-hidden dangers. Mold infestations may arise from the damp, moisture-rich environment, wood can rot, metal can rust, insects and dangerous pests may be attracted to the water, and a host of health issues can arise from any of these issues.
If you’ve noticed water damage, act fast and contact an Inland Empire plumber. Schuelke Plumbing is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Water damage can be devastating to a home. Especially after mold and dangerous viruses have a chance to start their growth. In terms of destructive capability it really isn’t that much different to a fire. The flooding of your home with unwanted water can not only create a huge safety hazard, it can destroy furniture, and demolish treasured keepsakes. It can ruin your expensive designer clothing or reduce your expensive electronic devices to so much useless glass and plastic.
Even a small pinhole leak in your plumbing infrastructure can create substantial headaches, undermine your home’s structural integrity and lead to a range of potentially serious health issues. Mold and other fungal infestations may arise from moisture-rich environment created by leaking water. Timber can become rotten, metal can become rusty. Moreover, insects and dangerous pests may be attracted to the water. This can lead to a high risk of infection or allergic reaction.
We all need to be vigilant in preventing our homes from being affected by water damage. Part of this is knowing the best ways to mitigate your risk of water damage while another part of it lies in knowing what to do if, despite your vigilance, you should require water damage repair.
What Are the Main Causes of Home / Business Flooding?
There are a wealth of internal and external factors which can cause water to flood your home or biz. Of course, natural disasters are a rare but tragically unavoidable cause of water damage. Here in California, we see more than normal it seems! Flash floods can see structures decimated by water while an earthquake may cause catastrophic damage to your pipes causing water to flood your home. An earthquake shutoff valve is an excellent line of defense when it comes to protecting your home from natural disasters. Do you have one?
In most instances, however, flooding and subsequent water damage are caused by failures in your plumbing infrastructure. There are so many pipes, outlets and devices using water in the average home that wear and tear becomes inevitable on a long enough timeline. Most of the time our home’s plumbing does its job so well that we assume it’s done by some sort of magic. When it fails, however, we see it for the delicate interconnected system that it is. When your water is shut off, you truly understand how much we take water for granted.
Common areas responsible for water damage include;
Knowing that these systems are known to fail, it makes sense to take preventative measures.
Should I Get My Home Or Business Inspected for Water Damage?
Prevention is always the best cure. Consider how often you take your car to get serviced. If you drive for hundreds of miles each and every week it behoves you to check in with your local garage every few months to change your oil, top up your other fluids, inspect your tires and ensure that your car is running as it should.
Despite the fact that both cars and plumbing systems get a lot of heavy use and have a similar propensity for wear and tear, few of us give our plumbing the same care and attention as our vehicles. Even newer homes are susceptible for water damage.
How Can I Get Immediate Repair Help?
Schuelke Plumbing can help in a number of ways both in the prevention of water damage and in rendering repairs when water damage has already taken place.
We can carry out a full check of your plumbing infrastructure and install an emergency earthquake shutoff valve to reduce your risk of water damage caused by the natural disasters which have been known to plague California.
When flooding takes place as a result of a plumbing failure we can get to the root of the problem faster than anyone. That’s because we use state-of-the-art video leak detection technology to expertly find the source of a problem, and fix it quickly in order to mitigate the damage done.
We can help to drain excess and even standing water from your home and assist in the drying process. This will reduce the risk of mold and other fungi taking root in your home and help your home and your life to return to normal quickly. We can repair any faults in your plumbing and restore its infrastructure to its former efficiency so that your chances of a repeat incident are drastically reduced.
How Do I Deal with My Insurance Company?
Once we have worked our magic in ridding your home of water and water damage, it’s vital that we engage your insurance provider right away as they will advise you on how best to proceed. We have been dealing with insurance for more than 40 years so this is something that truly makes us different than other water damage / plumbing companies. It’s also important to catalog everything damaged, taking photographs wherever you can. The items may or may not be covered by your insurance depending on your policy but if you don’t log it, you can’t claim it.
It may also be a good idea to check your policy. Most will cover water damage caused by natural disasters but some may not cover damage caused by wear to your plumbing. This is yet another reason why it’s so important to ensure that your plumbing is always in great working order.
