Raysco technicians are experts at pumping and extracting standing water, water damage repair, water remediation and restoration, and handling any other type of water damage.
Water is everywhere in your home. You have it in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the washroom, and in pipes running through walls and flooring. It’s no wonder water causes more long-term destruction than any other substance indoors. Whether you’re dealing with black water, clean water, or grey water, let the professionals at Raysco, Inc. take care of your water damage repair in Las Vegas.
Water damage comes in three categories: clean water, grey water, and black water. Clean water damage is caused by potable water, like when you drop the water jug as you try to put it in the water cooler at work. It gets into the carpet, runs under the walls, and just plain makes a huge mess.
Grey water damage carries physical, chemical, or even biological contaminants and spreads them to every crack and crevice. This might happen when your dishwasher, clothes washer, or toilet (no feces) leaks. Urine alone is considered grey water.
Lastly, there is black water damage. Black water damage is caused by pretty much everything else. Examples include seawater, sewage tank overflows, flooding caused by extreme weather or just plain standing water (think puddles).
Common Areas For Water Damage
Since water runs throughout your home, there are a lot of places you could possibly find damage.
Some common areas where water damage occurs include:
- Your foundation – This includes the ground slab and the foundation walls, whether it’s concrete, camp-proof membranes, bitumen, or other materials.
- Flooring – This includes the timber joist floors, insulation, and sound boarding. It also occurs on the parquet, textile coverings, carpet, and floating screed boards.
- Walls – This includes partition walls, internal walls, and masonry. Brick, plaster, timber frames, stone, and a variety of other materials are no exception.
- Of course, this is just an example. Water can seep in from outside, begin inside and work its way out, and have many other maneuvers. If you suspect water damage, even in an area you don’t think is connected to any, it’s important you contact the professionals.
Signs You Have Water Damage
Sometimes Las Vegas water damage is obvious, such as when you discover a pool of water, but other times it’s more subtle. The following are some signs you can look for:
- Unpleasant smells – Something that is damp will smell musky, which is very distinct. It could also be a rotting smell.
- Lower temperatures – When walls contain moisture, the heat can be drawn out of the room. The walls will be cool to the touch and the home, in general, could be cooler.
- Discoloration – Streaks on your walls, brown spots, and other forms of discoloration point directly to water damage.
- Water sounds – Dripping, rushing, squishing, and other common “water” sounds could mean water damage, but not every time. You really want to listen for a sound that’s out of the ordinary or something that has changed. For example, if your toilet has always made a dripping sound, but there has never been any water damage, there’s no reason to panic about the noise now
Our job is to extract all the water and mitigate any further water damage, regardless of its category. We then set fans and dehumidifiers to dry any additional moisture. Often, this requires us to elevate or remove the carpet and padding. Sometimes this might require us to remove baseboards or even drill small holes behind the baseboards.
Each job is different. We pull all the carpet and padding up around the affected area and treat all areas with an anti-microbial solution to prevent mold. After 24 hours of drying, we will put together a detailed estimate to restore your home or business.
