Water Restoration

Water damage, whether from a sewer system issue, storm, flood or other incident, can be devastating. Water can carry away some of your property, cause severe damage to electronics and all of your home’s systems, and can cause other devastation as well. Even when the water level falls, mold and mildew can become an ongoing concern.

If you need water damage cleanup for property in Wood County, West Virginia, call Drake’s Construction & Restoration. We have more than 20 years of experience helping homeowners recover from flooding and water damage. Since our team does extensive restorations and we even build homes from the ground up, we can handle any damage ranging from broken pipe water cleanup to restoring flooded basements for Parkersburg residents.

At Drake’s Construction & Restoration, we repair water damage in any part of your home. When you have water damage, it can be a costly problem if not dealt with right away. Our water restoration services will clean up your space and prevent any further disruption.

Some homeowners only learn they need repair after the damage is done. Here are some signs of water damage you can look for:

  • Musty smell: The smell of water damage in the home will be unmistakable. If you notice a musty, damp odor emerge from places like your basement or bathroom, there’s a chance of water damage.
  • Dark spots: Water damage in your walls or floors may show up as discolored spots. These may grow over time, so it’s important to treat them before they become bigger and require new infrastructure.
  • Cracked paint: Your wall or ceiling paint may show the areas where water is seeping through. Cracked or peeling paint and wallpaper indicate the spot that water damage has affected.

Storm or Flood Repair

Inclement weather can often be the reason your home needs water mitigation or repair. Heavy rain can create external and internal issues ranging from a flooded basement to structural damage. You can call the team at Drake’s Construction & Restoration for assistance from experts who can help you recoup after the storm.

Flood repair is one of the most significant aspects of water restoration. If your home lost power or couldn’t drain water during the storm, your basement may have water damage. Residue from flooding can stick around and provide a home for mold or mildew development, so we act fast to prevent these issues.

When it comes to emergency storm repair, we will show up promptly to mitigate the effects of water damage. If a bad storm takes a toll on your house, we’ll do all we can to help it feel like home again.

Considerations With Water Restorations

If your home has sustained damage from a leaky pipe, damaged roof or other source of water, it’s important to call professionals who can properly address the issue. Water damage can be a complex issue, and it often happens in places you may not see. Even if the water has retreated, there may be damage or mold growing under floors, ceilings and walls, which can cause numerous health issues for the home’s occupants.

Only professionals have the tools and training to safely and permanently remove the mold and then repair the damage left behind.

Water Mitigation Prevents Further Damage

Water damage repair generally has two steps — mitigation and restoration. Water mitigation begins the process with a thorough cleanup to prevent the fluid from reaching any other spots. We get to work on this step as soon as possible so we can stop the spread of further damage.

Our water restoration plan in your home will depend on the scope of the problem. Because water damage can take many forms, our solutions can as well. We help you evaluate how to eliminate any issues in your system and protect your home for the future.

Restoration can be anything from replacing moldy HVAC units to rebuilding parts of your house’s structure. Our skilled technicians will do a thorough cleanup job and take preventive measures to defend your home against future damage. When you begin this process sooner rather than later, you can potentially benefit from lower costs and fewer repair requirements.
