Recent People With Water Damage Restoration Needs:

A downstairs basement bedroom had water run in from the egress window under the sill. The bedroom carpet was soaked and the drywall looks to be damaged. I sucked up about 2 gallons of water out of the carpet and it is mostly dry, but now I'm starting to notice a musty smell in the basement.

Water is not properly diverted away from the townhome in one corner. Water enters basement trickling indoors alongside the foundation down by the floorboards. My townhome association told me we need a grading diverting the water away from the home. A basement systems company told me I should install a sump pump and pvc pipe drainage.

1.20 What to do after a kitchen fire?

Q. I have had a fire today in the kitchen which has resulted in serious damage to two wall units and the extractor fan. The electricity for the oven and hob were connected to the extractor, so I am unable to use these and there is alot of smoke damage to the kitchen and this has spread albeit only a little into all downstairs areas of the house. I managed to smother the flames and throw the pan onto the garden, which has burnt the lawn and I also have a burn to my arm from removing the pan. The insurance company promised to send a cleaning company out today to make the kitchen habitable again and a loss adjuster is coming on monday. So far, the cleaners aren't here and I am not sure whether to start cleaning up myself, as it is getting on my nerves. Can anyone advise whether this is a bad idea in view of the loss adjusters coming and if I should be aware of anything when they come. The kitchen is only a year old and was very expensive. I don't want to under estimate on the level of damage, as I would like it put back the way it was.

A. Okay, I do fire/water damage restoration work and have for the last 10 years. First of all, yes, take pictures. You can attempt to start cleaning if you want to, however, I wouldn't suggest it. Here is the reason; kitchen fires 9 times out of 10 are caused by protein fire, which means you were cooking something. These type fires leave a very greasy mess behind. In the fire/water damage industry, we have special chemicals to remove the soot/smoke odor. Be prepared that this is not something that can be cleaned up in 30 minutes. You have to start from the ceiling and work your way down to the floor, including all the contents within the affected area. Now, as far as jeopardizing your claim, in 10+ years of doing this, the only time I have EVER seen a claim denied is due to arson. Never have I heard an adjuster state a claim was denied to negligence. 95% of your fires in homes are caused by carelessness. It's an accident, whether it was caused from cooking, faulty wiring, etc. I know your house is a mess right now, and you as the homeowner are allowed to start mitigating your own loss. If you are not happy with the restoration company coming out, then go into the yellow pages under "fire/smoke damage" and contact someone else. We always tell our customers that we work for them, not the insurance company. Also, save all your receipts for eating out, anything you have to put money out to as a result of this fire. You will be reimbursed by your insurance company. When the adjuster comes out, he will scope the loss and write up an estimate. The restoration company will also write up an estimate based upon what they see needs to be done. Usually, the price is about the same because we all use the same pricing program to figure out an estimate. If I can't suggest anything else to you, I will suggest this, whoever you choose to use in restoring your home, make sure they specialize in fire/water damage restoration work. If it's not done right, you will not have the odor out of your house, nor will it be cleaned correctly. Here is some basic info off our website that will help: Report the damage to your insurance company as soon as possible. Most companies have a toll-free call center to take your information. Or you can always report the loss to your agent. If you must turn off your water, take steps to prevent your plumbing and/or heating supply pipes from freezing. If you have lost power and it is safe to do so, remove perishable foods from your refrigerator and freezer. The odor created by spoiled food is usually impossible to remove. Keep a listing of anything you have discarded and receipts for any expenses you incur in protecting your property. Most likely, your insurance claim representative will ask for these items If you must relocate, even temporarily, give your insurance company a phone number where you can be reached. You want your home back to the condition it was in prior to the fire and smoke damage Appliances/Electronics: Do not use any TV, stereo or electronic appliances until they have been checked by a technician. If the electricity is off, empty your refrigerator/freezer completely and prop the doors open with a rolled towel. Carpets: Vacuum loose dry soot smoke particles from carpets. Make sure the vacuum cleaner has a HEPA filter to prevent redistribution of fine soot. Avoid walking or tracking on carpet if possible. Do not use “do-it-yourself” home carpet cleaners. Ceilings/Walls: Do not wipe or attempt to wash ceilings or other absorbent surfaces. Doors: Close doors on affected areas to localize smoke odors as much as possible. Food Items: Do not consume food items exposed to smoke or canned goods that have been subjected to excessive heat. Furnace: Change the furnace or air conditioner filter if the blower is operating. Tape double pieces of cheesecloth over air registers with masking tape. Furniture: If possible, avoid using upholstered furniture or handling drapes. Pets: Remove all pets to a clean environment. Plants: Wash plants with mild soap and water, cleaning both sides of the leaves. Plumbing: Call a plumber to drain and winterize the system if the heat will be turned off in the winter. Windows: If possible, open windows to ventilate.

1.20 Is it the good option to hire the water damage restoration experts after some damage?

Q. Water damage restoration experts after some damage

A. I suggest you try a good, reputable General Contractor, Why? Restoration experts have a tendancy to imply this type of work needs or has any experts. What this means is they do only restoration work which is a very high markup with little or no equipment. Here is an example of what I have witnessed. Flood Damage to a home which included flooding the crawlspace and about 2" of water over the 1st floor. This homeowner hired a flood restoration contractor who did this after water receeded the crawl space. #1. Removed all the duct work (fibre board) in the crawl space $ 1800 #2. Sprayed the exposed wood floor joist,rim boards, plates with a mold killing agent applied with a pump sprayer $2100 #3. Set 3 fans in the crawl space to dry out the ground - left in place for 1 week $800 #4. Removed the old plastic sheeting on crawl floor and installed new 3 mil $900 #4. Cleaned the remaining ductwork in the house $1200 #5. Had a subcontractor (hvac) install new ductwork in the crawlspace $2300 #6. Pulled up carpet on 1st level (900 sq ft.) $650 #7. Set fans in house to dry out subfloor (1 week) $800 #8. Sprayed mold killing agent on all 1st floor subfloor $1200 #9. Cleaned all baseboard trim and lower kitchen cabinets $925.00 #10 Had subcontract flooring company install new carpet & pad, vinyl in kitchen 100 sq yards. $3800 Now that's $16,475.00 . I got there 2 days after I was called for an estimate. This company had already pressured the owner into signing this contract saying that their schedule was filled but if they signed the contract today they would get it sheduled for the next week. My total price was $12,250 for the exact same work. What they really charge way too much for is the mold/mildew spraying - I purchase this chemical agent at the same place they get it. It costs $38.00 per gallon and this job for crawl space and 1st floor would take 6 gallons = $228.00 plus labor 8hrs. @ $40 hour = $320, Total for both areas material and labor $548.00 - they charged $3,300 for this. Then you have the cost of placing (3) turbo fans in the crawl space and the first level to air it out = their charge for this $1,600. I rent this fans for $75 a week each = $450 Removing the old muddy plastic sheeting and installing new I had a cost of $400,they charged $900. The cleaning of the baseboard trim and lower kitchen cabinets was a farce = $925.00 * Owner said 2 young girls did this for $100 each cash - they told the homeowner this. The ductwork contractor I had quote the job said his price included removing all the old ductwork which wasn't much. So ---- Go ahead and get a price from the restoration experts, but also call around or ask neighbors for name of a couple good General Contractors, and give them time to respond. Much of the time the not so good Restoration contractors respond very quickly because they understand you are in a hurry - this can cost you money. If this is insurance job - make sure the insurance company will write the check to you - you then can hire anyone you want. Get it all in writing and have them break costs down as much as possible. Do not pay more than 10% up front. Ask for and check out their references. Read your contract - and all the fine print. Ask for a start and completion date. Also get a certificate of insurance which will show if they have workmens comp insurance on their workforce, and ask if they are subcontracting any work out, if they are you need a certificate of insurance on each subcontractor that shows coverage. Look at the expiration date on all certificates of insurance and call the insurance comp to make sure the company has paid this policy and it is in force for your job. This is a lot of info, but this way you will be sure to get a good contractor. The less than legitimate contractors will balk when you ask for this info - the good ones are used to this and rather proud of having it. * There are some good legitimate restoration contractors out there - just do some good comparison on your estimates to enable you to find one.

1.20 What rights does a consumer have in getting an estimate from a water damage restoration company?

Q. I was hit by the floods in the Midwest from the heavy rainstorms a couple weeks back. A resoration company came out and refused to provide me with a written estimate at the time of arrival (promised to fax me one when they got back to the office). They told me they would set up the equipment (dehumidifiers & fans) to draw the water out while they worked on the estimate because the water was so bad. They didn't provide it to me for 3 days and it was 5 times the price of what another franchisee had quoted of the same company. I immediately told them to remove all equipment and I wouldn't work with them, now they are trying to get me to pay 75% of the "estimate" because they did "work"?

A. The list should grow, but I would start with 1- the better business bureau 2-your state attorney general 3-your local county attorney 4-your local newspaper 5-call FEMA, they may can help 6- your rep and senator, this may be federal violation If they are 5 times as high, chances are they have jacked prices because of the flood, this is not good. I have told people that I dont mind being the highest bid , just as long as I am not twice as high. My theory is you get what you pay for , but this falls out of this catagory. Good luck with your project, come back and tell how it turned out. As good as you can,,Have a great day, dont loose faith in mankind because of these crooks

1.20 Should I contact with any of the restoration company in case of my air condition leaked water into carpet?

Q. I just want to add something that damage is not major but a few spots that are squishy when stepped on. But my partner doesn't think it is that bad and can be dried by our own fans and treated with a fungal spray.

A. As well as your question concern that the damage is not major so in that case if possible could just clean it up. You need to find out why the A/C is not draining properly. If it's a window unit it may not be sloped properly or the drain may be plugged internally. If in case the problem is getting increase then would be better to call up any professional. I heard some name of water damage Restoration Company. Detail is as follows.

1.00 Would knowledge of previous water damage affect your decision to purchase a condo?

Q. If you also know that the repairs have been completed by a qualified restoration company --- would the knowledge of the previous damage cause you to not want to purchase the home or condo? Would it affect the price you were willing to pay?

A. Not at all, if proper repairs were made and the cause of the leak remedied as well. There is no reduction in value because of a previous damage situation, as long as the unit was restored to the original or better condition during the repair.
