Benefits of Hiring a Water Damage Restoration Company

water damage restorationIf your Minneapolis home or business suffers water damage, you may be wondering whether you should hire a professional water damage restoration company. What are the benefits of hiring a restoration company, and how much water damage should there be before you call in the professionals?

Whether your water damage is caused by flooding, a broken water line or a sewage backup, whenever there is a large area affected or the area is exposed to water damage for more than 24 hours, it is recommended that a professional water damage restoration company perform cleanup and restoration. You could reduce your total losses by preventing long-term problems like structural damage and mold, among other benefits.

Fast Water Extraction and Reduced Drying Time

A professional water damage restoration technician will have the training and tools necessary to quickly remove any standing water, extract excess water from carpets and furniture, and begin the drying process. Time is an important factor when water damage is involved, and the sooner the water is removed the less damage will occur.

Mold can begin to grow in buildings after just 48 hours following water damage. Removing the water quickly is your best option for preventing mold growth.


Eliminate Health Concerns


Depending on the source of the water damage, there could be potentially hazardous bacteria or microorganisms present that can cause adverse health effects. Flood waters and especially sewage water should be handled with extreme caution to prevent illness.


A trained water damage restoration professional in Minneapolis has the knowledge to identify potential hazards in water, and will have the necessary protective equipment to protect themselves during cleanup.


An expert will also know what additional steps are needed to ensure your home or business is safe following flooding of contaminated water. They may need to take extra measures during the restoration process to address and disinfect your home or business.

Reduce Total Losses and Restoration Costs

Hiring a Minneapolis water damage restoration expert as soon as possibly after water damage can actually reduce your total losses and the total cost of cleanup and restoration. While this may sound counter-intuitive, realize that the sooner the water is removed and the area is dried, the less damage will actually occur.

Flooding can cause structural damage to your home, and prolonged exposure to water can result in damage to flooring and walls. Water can also seep in between drywall, causing hidden hazards and increasing the potential for mold growth. Repair costs can be extensive depending on the extent of the damage.

A timely response can also result in the ability to save furniture and documents before they are destroyed by water damage. As always with water, the sooner the water is removed, the less the damage will be.

Why You Should Hire a Water Damage Professional

One obvious benefit of hiring a professional to address your water damage is the reduced burden of having to do it yourself. It takes a lot of work, time and energy to restore a home following flooding, and a professional has the tool and skills necessary to quickly remove the water and to identify secondary damage to the structure of your home or your foundation.

You can have the peace of mind knowing that everything affected by flooding has been dried and treated to prevent mold growth. And while cost is usually the reason most people will try to do it themselves, they may actually save money by hiring a professional. Consider the extent of the damage and evaluate the amount of time necessary for you to extract the water and dry the area. If it is more than 48 hours, you should work with a professional who can extract the water quickly and begin the drying process sooner.
