Whether water damage is caused by a leaking pipe or a backed-up basement, restoration teams at Paul Cottle Construction can return a home or small commercial establishment to its pre-damaged condition.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Portland, OR – November 20, 2017 – Paul Cottle and his team of home-improvement professionals at Paul Cottle Construction provide emergency water damage services to help homeowners repair or rebuild and get back to their normal routine as quickly as possible.
When customers request restoration services, the Portland remodeling contractor first inspects the home to determine the extent of the damage. After the assessment, restoration crews focus on water removal. Standing water within the home can become breeding grounds for bacteria and mold, so prompt removal is necessary to prevent allergic reactions and illnesses. In cases of flooded basements or burst pipes, pumps and vacuums may be required to remove large amounts of water from the premises.
Affected areas are thoroughly dried out to get rid of any remaining moisture. The remodeling contractor also cleans and sanitizes water-damaged areas to stop mold and mildew growth. Items that cannot be salvaged are removed from the home (usually within 48 hours) to prevent microorganisms from spreading. Steps are taken to deodorize personal belongings.
Restoration is the final step in water damage recovery. When damage is minor, this phase can be relatively simple. It may involve replacing a cabinet or a few panels of drywall. In more serious cases, entire walls, ceilings, carpets and floors may have to be replaced. A water-damaged home or business may also need new duct work and heating and air-conditioning systems.
Paul Cottle Construction provides efficient, high-quality service to restore homes to their pre-damaged condition. The remodeling contractor also processes insurance claims and offers deductible assistance. To learn more about water damage services, visit www.paulcottleconstruction.com.
