Utah Water Damage Restoration

The United States racks up hundreds of thousands of water damage claims every year. Causes include leaking roofs, plumbing issues, and faulty appliances. Extreme cold can cause frozen pipes to burst. A leaky roof can cause damage to walls and electrical wiring. Storms can destroy windows or flood basements. A faulty HVAC system can even cause water damage.

Everyone knows that water damage can result from flooding and weather events, but a more insidious form of water damage can be caused by the slow infiltration of dampness into your foundation and walls. Telltale signs such as water stains, damp walls and rugs, and uneven or warped floorboards can hide an issue with mold that could be growing by the day without your knowledge.

Water Damage Remediation Experts

Our expert remediation professionals are trained in all aspects of water damage remediation and will coordinate with your insurer as well as any needed outside contractors to remediate your home safely and swiftly. You and your family will return to your home, restored to its previous condition or better, as soon as is possible. If your home has been affected by water damage in Southwestern Wyoming or Northern Utah, call us immediately at 801-741-0000.

Water Damage Clean Up Considerations

  • Never use a household vacuum to remove standing water! Only a shopvac can safely remove standing water, and only in areas where it is possible to safely plug it in. All electronics pose an electrocution or explosion hazard where standing water is present.
  • Do not assume that floors that show signs of damage such as buckling or sagging are safe to walk on.
  • Simply painting over water spots or discoloration is NOT a solution! This will merely put off the problem, allowing it to worsen in the meantime.
  • Cracks in the foundation or roof leaks that lead to water damage can also allow pests to migrate into your home. Make sure that the basement and attic are checked for signs of insects or vermin that may require an exterminator following water damage restoration.

Hidden Signs of Water Damage

1. Unexpected increase in water bills

Once you’ve accounted for unusual water usage, such as filling a pool or watering your spring garden, it’s important to be aware of an unexpected spike in your water bill; it could indicate a leak. Similarly, low water pressure can hint at a forming water damage issue.

2. Water stains

Ceilings, walls, and baseboards can develop spots and discoloration when exposed to leaks. Don’t ignore these! You can save yourself a much bigger problem down the road by dealing with the issue now. Water damage restoration pays for itself in the medium and long term.

3. Mold and mildew

Musty smells and/or visible mold are signs of much bigger problems. Don’t wait until mold begins to rot the structural elements of your home, or until it causes health problems for you and your family. The basement, attic, and floor joists are good places to start in assessing mold growth.

4. Damage to paint and wallpaper

An underlying water damage issue can cause paint and wallpaper to peel.

5. Water damage under the sink

Leaks under bathroom and kitchen sinks are easily missed and can cause significant damage over time if left too long without repair.

6. Plumbing noise

Irregular plumbing noises like rattling, hissing, or other unusual sounds emanating from the pipes can mean a leak and, therefore, some mounting water damage.

7. Damp spots that recur

If you clean up a water spot on a wall or floor that recurs, you can assume that there is a hidden leak behind it. Water damage restoration will take care of the source of the problem, not just the symptoms.

Causes of Water Damage

  • Roof leaks

    Roofing is the number one cause of water damage to homes and other structures. Pooled water can cause your roof to buckle, which can lead to costly damage both internally and externally.

  • Appliances and household systems

    Any equipment that includes pipes, tubes, gaskets, or filters has the potential to leak. The pipes that HVAC systems, water heaters, and other systems utilize can rust, crack, and degrade, leaving them susceptible to leaks.

  • Plumbing

    Rusting, staining, and scale buildup are signs of damage and potential leaks, which can wreak havoc on your property. Even a small crack can quickly result in extensive damage.

Your Checklist After a Water Emergency

1. Ensure Safety

Ensure that the property is safe before using the electricity.

2. Turn off water supply

If excess water is due to an issue from within your home, turn off the water supply at its source by cutting off the main water valve that leads to the house.

3. Take photo and video

Take photo and video evidence of the damage to preserve for your insurance claim.

4. Get an Inspection

Call The Disaster Company to inspect the damage, determine the source, create a rehab plan, and work with your insurer. If they require an assessment before we begin remediation and clean up, we will manage this process.

5. Cut Electricity

Allow us to cut the electricity to the home while we evaluate the damage.

6. Locate a place to stay

Locate a place to stay for your family should your home not be habitable while the damage is repaired.

7. Get flooring samples

Preserve a piece of any flooring or carpet that has been damaged.

8. Leave it to us

Utah Water Damage Restoration FAQ’s

When can we return to our home after a water damage incident?

Many factors will determine our cleanup time. It will generally take us 3-5 days to dry out affected areas with specialized air dryers and dehumidifiers. Our services also include rehabbing water damaged furnishings and carpet or other flooring and drying out documents. If structural damage has occurred, it will take longer to replace drywall, ceilings, or damaged roofing.

Will a dehumidifier work to remove standing water?

A dehumidifier can’t hurt in terms of removing excess moisture, but it will not remove standing water. We will manually remove large quantities of pooled water and then apply air dryers and other mechanisms to clean up the remaining moisture.

Will my insurance pay for The Disaster Company’s services?

We have relationships with most major insurers and will communicate with your provider to get you the best coverage possible for our services. Water clean up is a common issue and insurance companies are aware of their obligations.

Do water-damaged walls need to be torn out and replaced?

Sometimes we can dry out your walls using specialized equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers. If mold is behind the moisture damage, however, the drywall may need to be replaced.

How do you handle floors that are damaged by water?

Real wood floors may be amenable to rehab if they are not extensively damaged. Replacement of laminate and vinyl flooring is very common after water damage, however.

How do I know if my roof needs to be replaced?

Displaced and uneven shingles, cracks in the flashing, sagging, and moss and fungi growth are telltale signs of a roof that needs work. Start in the attic when assessing the roof to locate any leaks or holes.

Can mold growth harm my family’s health?

Yes, unfortunately household mold is associated with respiratory irritation including allergies, asthma, and even shortness of breath. Brain fog, skin rashes, fatigue, and many other symptoms may be associated with exposure to mold. Water damage clean up is important not only to preserve your property value, but may be instrumental in protecting your family’s health.

Does The Disaster Company have experience in restoring our valuable possessions?

Yes! We are often able to surprise our customers with our ability to restore clothing and fabrics, dry out documents and photographs, and recover items that have been damaged by mold.
