Water Damage

Water Restoration Process

Big Daddy understands that water damage restoration is an emergency business. That’s why we are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The fast action that Big Daddy provides is imperative to reduce suffering and save money. The primary purpose of the emergency service is to “preserve, protect and secure the property from further damage.” Water damage claims increase substantially if prompt action is not taken to contain the damage.

The cleaning professionals at Big Daddy use the latest products, procedures, and equipment to assure the highest level of cleaning performance and protection for your property and furnishings.

Ours is a six step process using the latest equipment and supplies:

IICRC

  • Inspection and Assessment
  • Water Removal
  • Anti-microbial Application
  • Drying: Air Movement
  • Drying: Dehumidifying
  • Drying: Monitoring

By having the right equipment, and understanding the principles involved in the water damage restoration process, we an accurately estimate the total cost of the work, thereby saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

 

Dehumidification

Floods, fires, earthquakes, pipe breaks, hurricanes, tornadoes and rainstorms all lead to the water damage of homes, offices, factories, schools, stores and other buildings. Big Daddy drying services allow the restoration and reservation of these environments, while protecting them from traditional water damage problems such as structural deterioration, corrosion and biological problems like mold and mildew. Big Daddy provides a turnkey service which includes consultation to owners and insurers, expertise in drying all substances, equipment installation and careful monitoring of the process. The service helps disaster victims avoid substantial reconstruction, returns facilities to use quickly and generally offers a significant reduction in recovery costs.

Deeply dehumidified air, when exposed to water damaged environments, will attract water molecules from wet substances, such as wallboard, concrete block and wood floors, drying them. After a flood, the ambient air is too humid to attract the molecules and dry the objects quickly. Thus, not using Big Daddy drying services can result in the loss of property from deterioration or biological contamination.

High Tech Drying and years of experience save you money!

Time and time again satisfied customers tell us how our services seem miraculous! Sometimes-in just days!-we help them go from total devastation to business as usual. Here are some of the ways Big Daddy can help after water damage:

 

Reducing Reconstruction

Big Daddy utilizes proven structural drying techniques. In the process, we have saved millions of dollars for our customers each year following water-damage disasters. No longer does a water disaster require old-fashioned ‘rip out and replace’ methods of recovery. Big Daddy can dry wallboard, insulation, paneling, ceiling tiles, masonry block and concrete, wooden and metal studding, plaster walls and other structural components.

 

Arresting Post-Disaster Problems

A wide range of moisture related deterioration occurs after a building is water damaged. Wood swells, buckles or begins to rot, sheetrock loses rigidity and strength, electrical wiring corrodes, metal components rust, paint peels, and more. All of these effects can be arrested-and many reversed!-by the prompt employment of deep drying techniques.

 

Restoring Valuable Wood Floors

Big Daddy can restore wood floors. Whether in gymnasiums, racquetball centers, department stores, theaters or homes, Big Daddy techniques can literally reverse buckling, cupping and swelling. Floors with 10 inch ‘waves’ have been dried and gradually returned to their normal condition, saving tens of thousands of dollars.

 

Saving Books, Documents And Files

Water-damaged books, documents, files, microfilm/microfiche, X-rays, blue prints, audio/video tape and artwork can all be saved. Often files can be dried in place, allowing access to records during the restoration process. Large libraries can be taken by Big Daddy to one of its drying centers for careful processing and restoration.

 

Preserving Un-flooded Areas

Water-soaked areas create an ambient high humidity which acts upon other undamaged areas and their contents. Big Daddy prevents this by using a ‘blanket of dry air’ to seal-off unaffected areas from those under recovery. If left unprotected, hygroscopic materials (materials that naturally absorb moisture from the air) are affected quickly. For example, books grow mold on their covers, woodwork swells and buckles, and wall coverings mildew. Electrical systems and electronic equipment, such as computers, suffer from corrosion. Big Daddy will work with you to protect the entire building, while restoring your flooded area. Big Daddy will provide a realistic anticipated drying time frame to reach the specified drying objectives and up front pricing. You will be told the total drying price before we begin and that price won’t change upon completion.
