Water Restoration Published September 24, 2020

Why Reconstruction Services Are Essential Following Emergency Damage

When a large-scale water damage emergency strikes, the homeowner may need not only restoration services but also water damage reconstruction services. Consider the case of a family that arrives home from a two-week vacation to find wet flooring, soggy carpet, and a moldy smell. They quickly call a water damage restoration company. The inspection and assessment from the water damage restoration company reveals extensive damage throughout the house. The supply line to the washing machine seems to have been leaking for almost all of the two-week vacation. (Washer connection hoses can spring leaks after as little as seven years.)

The water damage remediation proceeds swiftly. Vacuum units, special fans, and industrial dehumidifiers make short work of the drying process. Since the water had been in the home for over a week, advanced secondary water damage has occurred. The carpet and padding can not be saved because mold and mildew have set in. Carpet delamination takes place when carpeting is exposed to water for a lengthy period. Water and moisture exposure ruin the finish, upholstery, and structural beams of several pieces of furniture.

The water-logged subflooring warps and begins to disintegrate. Baseboards throughout the home are unsalvageable. Bloated drywall and blistered paint are found in every room affected by the extensive flooding. Few of the warped doors will close. The door casings are visibly cracked and twisted. Flooded HVAC ductwork and water-logged insulation collapse into the crawl space.

Many property owners do not realize that when the damage remediation is complete, the property still needs reconstruction services to rebuild, repair, or replace damaged and unsalvageable portions of the structure. Because PuroClean of Sterling, VA, understands the trauma that property owners are facing, the company offers complete turnkey restoration and reconstruction services.

Reconstruction of residential and commercial structures includes inspections, complete and thorough estimates, permit acquisition, and project management from start to finish. Enlisting the services of a property damage restoration company that has proven competence in providing reconstruction services ensures consistent quality control, accountability, communication, and seamless project management.
