How Does Water Damage Affect Your Home?

Water mitigation in Fargo is one of the most critical services that our team of experts provides. Water damage isn’t like dirty carpets or junk that is piling up. It continues to move and spread, destroying furniture and other items, seeping into walls, and damaging everything in its path. The longer it is left untreated the more problems that can arise as a result. This includes the spread of bacteria, the contamination of any cloth and paper goods it comes into contact with, and even the development of mold.

Frequently Asked Questions

Water Damage Restoration

What is the water damage clean up process?
Our water damage clean up services include using commercial-grade equipment to extract water and humidity from your property, detecting and removing damaged structures, and ensuring the structural integrity of your property by applying necessary temporary reinforcements. Our water mitigation services are designed to prevent further damage to your property after a leak or flood. We do not, however, handle repairs or restoration of your property.
How does water damage clean up work?
The process is multi-phase. First, all standing water is removed from the affected area. We then use our professional Hydromaster system to extract water with suction up to 1200 PSI. We also drill holes in affected areas of drywall to allow drying to take place within the walls. This removes a majority of visible moisture. To ensure we remove hidden moisture to prevent further damage and possible mold growth, we use a professional-grade dehumidifier. This is no ordinary conventional dehumidifier. We carry out the dehumidifying process using a low-grain refrigerant dehumidifier which is a fancy way of saying that it removes moisture and collects the maximum amount so that the moisture is not released back into the air.
How much does water damage clean up cost?
The cost of mitigation depends upon many different factors including the location of the leak, how much water has gathered, what materials the water damage has affected, etc. It is impossible to estimate the cost of water damage mitigation without knowing the specifics of your case. Please give our team a call and we will be happy to discuss your case and come out to your property to do an estimate.
What should you do first when your house is flooded?
The first thing you need to do when your home is flooded in the areas of Fargo or Moorhead is call a water mitigation service like Big Fish Cleaning and Restoration. Our team of professionals will quickly get over to your property to prevent further damage to your home. It is important that you call us as soon as possible because every moment that passes is causing more damage to your property.
Does my homeowners insurance cover water damage?
It is possible that your homeowners insurance will cover the damage caused to your property from a leaky pipe, flood, etc. This is something that needs to be discussed directly with your insurance company.
Do you guys offer water cleanup services for leaky pipes or appliances?
Yes. This is one of the most common reasons people contract our water damage cleanup services. These issues can usually be detected and taken care of fairly quickly. Contact our team to get it resolved as soon as possible.
Does your team handle the repairs after the water damage is cleaned up?
We do not offer restoration services. Our services are limited to the mitigation process. We handle the clean-up, extraction of water as well as dehumidification of your home using commercial-grade equipment. We ensure that your home is prepared to receive professional restoration services.
How long does it take to dry out a flooded house?
If your home is flooded, it is important that you seek professional water damage mitigation services as soon as possible. Every moment you wait is further damaging your home which can lead to higher repair costs, mold, and even threaten the foundation of your property entirely. If your home has been affected by a flood it is highly unlikely it will dry out on its own. Remember that even if the water has been removed and it looks dry that doesn’t mean that the water has not collected within walls and beneath floors. Our team has equipment that is able to remove water and humidity from deep within walls and floors, which prevents further damage. If you have further questions about our water damage mitigation process please don’t hesitate to contact our team.
