Not all water damage losses are created equal. That is why the IICRC has identified three categories of water. If you experience a water loss in your home, the first thing our technicians will do is identify the category of water, and analyze the extent of the damage.
Mold needs three things to survive: moisture, oxygen and an organic food source. Since building materials are a prime food source for mold growth, a small presence of moisture could cause mold to colonize in as little as 24 hours. When you act fast and call Baker Restoration and Construction, we will quickly arrive to your home to begin the mitigation process.
If water is left to sit for long periods of time, not only are you at risk for mold growth, the structure of your home could be compromised as well. Saturated building materials weaken the longer they stay wet. Depending on the type of building materials, load-bearing beams, walls or flooring type, serious damage could occur if not handled immediately. Signs of structural damage would include the buckling of floors, sagging of drywall, cracks in the walls and falling plaster. When you call Baker Restoration and Construction, our fast response can prevent structural damage to your home.
The faster Bakers responds the quicker our technicians can begin the extraction process. If we catch the damage before it moves to Category 2 water, then the mitigation process can begin shortly after extraction. Based on a quick response, we can normally have your home dried in 3-4 days and help you get back to your day to day life.
We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.
