Water damage in Southern Vermont or wherever you may live is devastating.
Do you have water seeping in your basement? Is your home flooded because of broken pipes?
The worst mistake a homeowner can make if he has water damaged carpeting is to try and dry it himself/herself or leave it to air dry. Mildew causes the carpet backing to disintegrate, sheetrock to dissolve and crumble, plus totally offensive odors are created if the problem is not corrected.
We, at Catamount Response, a division of Catamount Carpet Cleaning, in the event of water damage, take care of your problem from A to Z.
We protect your furnishings, extract water, disengage carpet, remove or save padding (depending on the type of damage), treat carpet and flooring with a mildewcide, install airmovers and dehumidifiers, monitor the drying process daily, install pad and carpet, place furniture and doors back. In most cases, we can restore your home in as little as four days.
In severe cases where ceilings have collapsed and walls need painting, we can recommend local contractors to help you put it all back together. We also have a good rapport with all insurance companies.
SO, if your faced with a water damage problem, do the smart thing, call Catamount Response/Catamount Carpet Cleaning at 802-464-3839 or e-mail us.
According to the iicrc.org, water damage can be deceptive. Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation. The detection of water in these areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters. Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage. This damage, at a minimum, will cause odors. Greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to where costly repairs are required.
More than just removing excess water, cleantrust-certified restorers have the knowledge and equipment to further dry a home or facility (including substructure materials) completely back to pre-loss conditions. Through timely response and the careful monitoring of water damage, mold and other health issues can be prevented. If water damage has been present too long, mold will occur.
All IICRC-certified professionals have the training and experience to identify moisture sources, evaluate mold growth (visible or suspected), contain damage, remove contamination and dry materials to ensure that mold will not return.
