Water damage describes a large number of possible losses caused by water intruding where it becomes destructive to your property, such as rotting wood, rusting of steel, de-laminating of materials such as plywood, and many other components.
The damage may be gradual such as water spots that could eventually tarnish a surface, or it could be catastrophic, such as flooding. Water damage can originate by different sources such as a broken dishwasher hose, a washing machine overflow, broken or leaking pipes, flood waters and even clogged toilets. However slow or fast it occurs, water damage is a major contributor to loss of property.
Water restoration begins with a physical inspection of the wet and damaged areas. Water often travels to places you would least expect and can’t foresee. Leaving these places wet can cause serious damage in the future. Water restoration includes the complete process of water cleanup from beginning to end–removal of water, drying items and structures, and moving restored items back. At Atlantic Heating and Cooling it is our job to clean up the mess and to preserve and protect the home and its contents so that further damage will not occur.
