What is Water Damage Restoration?

You may have a burst pipe, leaky roof, or flooded basement. No matter the cause, the result is the same: your property is flooded with water and you need a solution ASAP. Times like these are when you need our water damage restoration services. 

Our professional contractors specialize in restoring water-damaged properties to their original state, or even better. We aim to make it look like you never had a water leak in the first place.

What is Our Restoration Process?

When you schedule our emergency services, what can you expect? Here’s a closer look at our restoration process in Connecticut:

Inspection

We start by thoroughly assessing your property. For safety reasons, we will disconnect the water main and any electrical breakers in the area. And once we’ve assessed the extent of the water damage, we can create a plan for how to remove and repair it. 

At this stage, we can also provide you with an estimate for our restoration services. We work with insurance companies to ensure you’ll receive the coverage you’re entitled to.

Water Removal

Next, we create a plan of action. We’ll relocate your belongings to protect them from further damage. Then, we strategize about exactly how we’ll remove the standing water from your property, and we get to work.

We use equipment like pumps and heavy-duty vacuums to remove water. And we don’t just remove water from the floors—we also check the walls, insulation, and ceilings for damage, too. Our emergency restoration services are comprehensive; you can trust that we’ll do a thorough job. 

Dry Out

Even once the standing water is removed, you’ll still notice high humidity and moisture levels. We begin the dry-out process as soon as possible to preserve the structure of your home.

We use commercial-grade equipment and dehumidifiers to lower moisture levels. In addition, we use air movers and fans to promote airflow. 

How long will the dry out take? It depends on the size of your property and the extent of the damage. We’ll continuously monitor moisture levels until they’ve returned to a healthy level.

Water leaks may contain all kinds of toxins, from hazardous waste to contaminants that cause illnesses. Once all standing water is removed, and we’ve dried out the affected areas, we will thoroughly clean and sanitize your property. 

Disinfection services are especially important when you’re dealing with sewage backup. Our cleanup services aren’t complete until your property in Connecticut is safe to inhabit again.

Mold spores can spread quickly through the air. We caution you against cleaning mold growth damage yourself; without protective equipment, you could expose yourself to harmful bacteria. That’s why we offer mold remediation services, as well.

Complete Restoration

After all the water is removed from your property, the next step is repairing it. We aim to restore your building to how it looked before the damage—or, to make it look even better!

In many cases, we will need to completely replace any wood, laminate, or carpet. We’ll examine each part of your home to determine what’s salvageable, and what’s better off being replaced. 

Losing your home in Connecticut can be devastating. After a disaster, our restoration process will make your house feel like a home again.

What is Water Mitigation?

With this service, we aim to minimize any damage from a water leak emergency. We identify the leak, stop the flow of water, and move your belongings to a safe area. Essentially, we aim to diminish any damage from the water.

After this is complete, you can schedule our water restoration services. We’ll remove damaged materials and renovate your home to restore it to its initial condition.

At Bella Contracting, we’ve been in business for over 20 years; in that time, we’ve seen all kinds of water damage. Depending on the location of your property, your property may be more susceptible to flood damage or sewage backups. 

Here is some of the most common water damage that we see in Connecticut:

You can’t miss the smell of a sewer. The foul odor of a sewage backup is both unpleasant, harmful, and hazardous to your health. 

Sewage backups happen when sump pumps fail, or septic tanks overflow. Exposure to sewage gases should be avoided at all costs. Sewer gas contains harmful bacteria that can make you sick.

Have you been affected by extreme weather events like Hurricane Ida? After disaster strikes, you might be left with a flooded home or business. With our 24/7 emergency services, you can trust that we’ll be there when you need our help.

After you’ve dealt with a water removal emergency, you’ll want to prevent future issues. We also offer storm drain installations; these systems will divert water away from your property in Connecticut. This prevents a water emergency after a heavy rainfall or flood.

Why do pipes burst? In the dead of winter, your pipes may freeze. This causes the water inside them to expand, which can break the material or create a leak. Your pipes can also backup from oil, soap, or hair buildup. It’s best to address these plumbing issues immediately to avoid an emergency cleanup.

As roofs age, they develop cracks and gaps that may cause a leak during heavy rainfall or when the snow melts. It can be difficult to trace the source of a leak, particularly with tar and gravel roofs, but our contractors have the experience to identify and repair roof leaks.

You’ve noticed a steady increase in your water bill—could it be from a leaking appliance? Over time, even a small water leak can lead to extensive damage. Whether it’s your dishwasher, washing machine, or kitchen sink, we can repair your leaking appliance.
