We at Eco-Tek Pro know that water, even the slightest amount can become Water Damage. That can turn a harmless seaming situation into an emergency situation very quickly. Whether it be from flooding from a storm, a leaky or broken pipe, or even a leaky air conditioning unit, water damage, if not taken care of quickly, can spell thousands of dollars in damage. Eco-Tek pro provides Emergency Water Damage Services in west palm beach, and South Florida. When it comes to water damage, the first and most important thing to look into is the cause.
If the cause is due to flooding from a storm, the only thing you can do is try to make sure that the next time a big storm comes through, your home or office isn't as vulnerable. If the water damage is due to a leaky or broken pipe, then before anything else is done, it is important to have a plumber come out to fix the issue so that taking care of the damage itself isn't in vein. Our specialists can assist with this. If one of our specialists comes out and sees that the damage is due to any kind of plumbing problem, we can help get a professional plumber to your location so that they can fix the issue for you and avoid more damage down the road.
If the water damage is due to a leak in the air conditioning unit, then our specialists at Eco-Tek Pro can have a professional Air Conditioning Technician come out to fix the issue properly to avoid having the leak cause more water damage.
Once the cause has been fixed, it is extremely important to dry out the area properly. Since it only takes a matter of days for mold to grow, the faster an expert is called out to properly dry out the space, the lower the chances of mold spreading throughout the area. It only takes 48-72 hours for mold to spread so if for some reason there has been a long period of time between when the damage occurred and when a specialist is called then it is important to check for mold throughout the home or business.
Any evidence of mold will be cut away and properly remediated to ensure that the spores do not spread to other areas of the home or office and to ensure that the occupants can breath easily without the negative health effects that mold can bring.
