Common Reasons for Water Damage
Water can seep into your basement, causing water damage or, even worse, flooding. Failed water heaters, broken sump pumps, poor drainage, and failures to your foundation are all ways your basement could experience water damage.
Small leaks at times can be hard to detect until you can see the water. The leaks often occur behind drywall or in crawlspaces. From pipes in your kitchen and bathroom to basement or garage, undetected water leaks can cause mold growth if not detected quickly.
When temperatures plummet below freezing, the pipes on your property are at risk of cracking and splitting. Massive amounts of water damage can happen in a short time. Our team of professionals will extract the water and restore the entire space. We provide complete water damage restoration services in the Monroe, NC, area.
How many of your appliances depend on water? At times, dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines, or even water heaters and sump pumps can fail, saturating the surrounding areas with water. Our team at Providence Restoration can identify and restore all areas of water damage, both hidden and exposed.
When high winds, heavy rains, and flash flooding occurs, neighboring rivers, streams or creek beds can rise and overflow onto your property. With those waters come hazardous materials such as bacteria, E.Coli, microbes, and debris. Providence Restoration, however, has experience handling these types of damages and can not only restore your property but in many cases can save your belongings as well.
Fires are devastating to property owners. Not only does the fire itself damage your home, but the water to put it out can create even more damage. Using proven water removal restoration methods and state-of-the-art cleaning equipment, our team at Providence Restoration can handle both fire and water damage at once.

An IICRC-certified technician will go to your residential or commercial property to begin the evaluation process of finding the spread of water damage.
Water Damage Evaluation
We have a very thorough evaluation process. We do not simply analyze the affected area; we take it a step further by taking moisture readings in both the affected and unaffected areas to determine the full scope of water damage. We also use modern technology to identify moisture that could have traveled behind the sheetrock or beneath floorboards. This thorough evaluation process reduces the risk of further damage and mold growth.

Water Damage Restoration Tips
Document the water damage with photographs if you think you’ll file an insurance claim.
Remove any standing water in your home with a shop vac or squeegee.
Move contents and electronics away from the affected area.
Put out fans and open windows to start getting the air circulating.
Don’t wait to call a certified restoration professional to come onsite to evaluate your water damage and begin the restoration process. Most significant water damage cannot be fully repaired by the property owner.
Frequently Asked Questions
Water damage insurance claims depend on a few different criteria. Ultimately, that's a question you'll have to clarify with your insurance company. However, we can tell you that the viability of water damage insurance claims depends primarily on what caused the damage (storm, burst pipe, plumbing malfunction, localized flood, sump pump failure, etc.). Some insurance policies will outline scenarios that will NOT be covered without specific riders like flood insurance, or sump pump failure insurance.
Contacting a restoration contractor as well as your insurance adjuster at the same time is a good idea, because the restoration contractor will help make sure that not only will the water extraction and dry out be covered, but the rebuild process that should follow. If the full scope of the claim isn't outlined and agreed upon from the start, there may be issues down the line, and property owners may find themselves having to pay out of pocket to get the property completely back to normal.
That depends on the types of materials that were affected by water. Drywall, carpet, and hardwood floors will take longer to dry than other materials in the space. We use moisture meters throughout the process and in many different locations to gauge the moisture levels and will continue to adjust our fans and dehumidifiers to achieve an efficient but effective dry time. The bare minimum of "three days to dry" may only produce a surface dry, but can still leave behind moisture levels that create an ideal environment for mold to grown.
Most homeowners start trying to remove the water themselves before they realize they'll need to contact their insurance company about a claim so they can call in a water damage restoration company. However, standing water around anything with a power cord or outlet or sagging ceilings make the area unsafe. Also, many insurance claims require documentation of the loss BEFORE any work is done, including removing the water. Always take plenty of photos of the damage you see before taking any action to start cleaning up the mess. Your restoration contractor will be able to back up your insurance claim scope with the necessary technical documentation as well.
If the water damage involves Category 1 water (clean and free of microbes and bacteria), many of your personal belongings can be salvaged. Category 2 water would include other water sources, including rainwater, that, while not containing biohazards or sewage, still pose health risks and the potential for destructive microbial growth and mold. A water damage restoration technician will help you sort through the contents of the property to determine what can be safely dried, what can be restored by a textile/contents technician, and what can't be saved or salvaged. There are off-site facilities in the area that specialize in restoring water-damaged contents. Your restoration team will document all of the contents leaving the property for restoration or disposal for your records and also for reimbursement from your insurance company.
Identifying the source of the water damage is one of the first steps in both the insurance claim process but also before beginning to dry out and repair the damaged areas. After all, if you replace a sagging, wet ceiling that was caused by a roof leak but don't fix the roof, too, the next rainstorm will start the cycle all over again. The buckling to your hardwood floor could be caused by a leaking pipe. We will pinpoint the exact cause of your water damage and make sure the source is repaired. We make sure your restoration job is done right the first time.
