Water Restoration Services in Philadelphia


Your Philadelphia Water Restoration Specialists

Nothing gives homeowners that sinking feeling in their stomach like a burst pipe or flooded basement. When water is going everywhere, it’s hard not to panic. Take a deep breath, turn off the main water line to your home, and give a call to the experts in Philadelphia, Guaranteed. We’re here 24/7 to fix a plumbing emergency and will follow up with you for water restoration afterward.

Causes of Home Flooding

In Philadelphia, there are several causes of emergency home flooding. The most common in the wintertime is burst pipes from water in the pipes freezing, expanding, and pushing against thin patches or worn seams between pipe sections. Burst pipes can occur anywhere in the home, so it’s important to make sure that they’re warm in the winter and that you keep a small trickle of water going to prevent freezing. If the pipes burst, call us immediately for a repair.

You may also have a leaking water heater that can contribute to a flooded basement or laundry room. Roof leaks can also cause flooding in the home, resulting in water in your attic and walls, or through your ceilings. In these cases, the water restoration process should be completed fast, before mold forms in your drywall and home’s structure.

The Water Removal Process

The team at Guaranteed features experts in water removal, and will carefully inspect your home afterward to determine the extent of water restoration you’ll need. It’s important to start the process quickly, and our teams have the experience necessary to get your home fixed, FAST. Here’s what you can expect from the water damage restoration process:

Inspection

We begin with a visual inspection of the extent of the damage to determine the quickest way to remove the water. Standing water in the home is an ideal environment for mold to form and bacteria to grow. There are 4 classes of water damage, from Class 1 — which can be fixed simply by vacuuming the water out — to Class 4, which is extensive damage that necessitates whole sections of the house to be rebuilt. We’ll also inspect the water as well, since some categories of water are more toxic than others, such as water from a flooded river or sewage pipes.

Water removal

Once our teams have determined the scope of the damage and the type of water in your house, we’ll remove it using specialty vacuums and pumps. The type of equipment we use depends on the situation, but we’ll work as fast as possible to prevent bacteria from growing.

Drying

Once all of the water is extracted, we use powerful fans to completely dry the room or rooms affected. The drying and dehumidifying process can take several weeks to complete, but it’s important to completely dry the space before completing the water restoration process.

Cleaning

All of your possessions need thorough cleaning and treatment with antibacterial and antimicrobial solutions to ensure that they’re sanitary and safe.

Restoration

The biggest step of water restoration is the rebuilding part. This can include replacing small sections of drywall or insulation. However, more serious flooding can mean that entire walls will need replacing.
