Water Damage in Baton Rouge
When you think about water damage in Baton Rouge, you may only think about it happening due to flooding. Actually, the most common types of water damage calls we receive have to do with household incidents- or things like a leaky roof. Left unnoticed, these events can all lead to the need for our services. The longer you let water sit then the more work you will need.
What should I do?
If you suffer a water emergency, don’t panic. First and foremost, shut off the source of the water. If you have a broken pipe, leaky HVAC system, or similar, shut off all the water to the building. In order for United Fire and Water Damage to help with water damage in Baton Rouge, we need the source of the water intrusion fixed. Call your roofing company (we can help!) plumber, or your HVAC company. After the problem has been solved then we’ll come out and assess your situation! All jobs are different. If you act quickly then we may be able to just help dry out the building. Some jobs require just a simple system to dry out drywall and floors. Frequently we can extract water and set up air movers.
What about Mold?
One thing is for certain, if your water sat for 48-72 hours then we will need to do some demo to prevent mold growth. Another variable is the type of water intrusion. If it was fresh water and you called us quickly then we can try to preserve your drywall. In the case of flood water or other Category 3 water, contaminated building materials MUST be removed.
