Below, this was a water damage that was ignored by the homeowner, and was not professionally dried out. Suspect microbial growth occured in the walls. The cleanup and reconstruction costs far exceeded what it would have taken to properly dry the walls immediately after the water damage occured.
Don't let this happen to your home! Get it dried out, Quik!
Above. These unfortunate homeowners had a washing machine leak that they thought they had "cleaned up" and "dried out" on their own. Unfortunately they did not realize water travels easily under cabinets and can cause mold growth if not promptly and properly dried out. The cabinet and ceramic tile countertop had to be demolished and discarded to get this properly cleaned up. We have the proper tools, moisture sensors and training to make sure that this does not happen to you. The cleanup and reconstruction costs far exceeded what it would have taken to professionally dry the walls and cabinet immediately after the water damage occured. Don't let this happen to your home, get it dried out,

Sensitive moisture meters detect trapped and hidden moisture in and below the surface of building materials. Hidden and trapped moisture, if not discovered and promptly dried, is what causes most of the damage in a water damaged building.
In severely water damaged buildings, a thermal hygrometer is used to monitor temperature and relative humidity. This allows the water damage technician to monitor the amount of moisture in the air and adjust drying equipment accordingly. This practice is called "psychometry".
A "Moisture Stick" is used to positively identify carpet and padding that is wet. Often the surface of the carpet will appear or feel dry but the padding and sub-floor below is saturated. This tool identifies these areas.
Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, Plumbers and Plumbing Companies
Although water damage can be caused by many sources, often the cause is a plumbing related issue. Old pipes rust and corrode, plastic and rubber can rot and crack, drains clog, installation is poor or faulty, and many other plumbing related issues can cause water damage. It is always good to have a established relationship with a plumber or plumbing company prior to having a water damage. A plumbing company that offers 24 hour emergency service is always helpful.
Unmitigated, Water damaged buildings can be the perfect breeding place for mold. Mold needs two things to grow in almost any environment, a food source (building materials in your home) and moisture (from water damage). As a restorative drying company, it is our goal to take away the moisture from the equation in a timely fashion so mold never gets a chance to germinate and subsequently sporify. In many instances this can be accomplished without the use of any type of anti-microbials or chemicals.
Water damage restoration is a specialized field that requires special protective measures, specialized equipment and testing capabilities as well as certain engineering controls to protect you and your property. These days, Water damage restorative drying is a highly skilled and technical profession. In fact, most technicians use advanced restoration and inspection tools such as infrared cameras to efficiently detect trapped and hidden moisture in building materials. Technicians are certified through classroom training that is updated yearly by a certifying board called the IICRC. Water damage can be the starting point for many serious problems that can affect a building, damage personal property and present serious health risks to occupants. Water damage mitigation is something that must be dealt with quickly and effectively.
Rapid response is critical to reduce damage from water intrusion into a building, that may come from broken water pipes, overflowing toilets, sewer back-ups, broken water sprinklers, roof damage, etc.
