Causes of Flood Damage
When it comes to flooding, torrential downpours may be what pop in your head. However, this isn’t always the case. In fact, flooding can arise from a burst pipe, flash flood, or an appliance malfunction. No matter the cause though, our technicians will be there when you call. Indoor flooding is generated by a number of factors, all of which have devastating results. The most common causes of flooding that require assistance from a flood damage cleanup and flood damage restoration services company include:
Leaky or burst pipes
Sewage or toilet overflow
Malfunctioning dishwasher or washing machine
Appliance failure or improper installation
Flood Water Damage
Out of all the possible disasters that can damage your property, flooding is arguably the least predictable in both timing and severity. We are all well aware of the possibility of a storm hitting, but were you aware that flooding also results from leaking pipes, busted pipes, sprinkler head discharge and drainage systems? Flooding can happen quickly catching you and other property owners by surprise.
But whether it was a slow and steady leak, or an overnight flood, when water gets into your house, you are likely going to experience some water damage. The issue is that water has a way of working itself into and through every material, which is why urgency is so important. This saturation can cause wood to warp or rot and metal to rust, it can destabilize structures, and will inevitably lead to the growth of harmful molds and bacteria. Call Seaside Restoration at the first sign of a flood or water damage, and our team of professionals will make sure your home is safe and sound.
Dangers of Flood Damage
It is estimated that nearly 90 percent of natural disaster related damage is caused by flood damage. Water damage affects houses, buildings, vehicles, belongings, you name it. An inch or two of standing water can cause severe damage to your property. Flood damage cannot only be frustrating and costly, it can also lead to a number of safety concerns if water is not immediately cleaned up. The first major concern with flood damage is it resulting in some structural damage, which can take the form of broken glass, sharp metal, electrical damage or structural instability.
Many people do not realize that flood water contains everything from mud, bacteria, sewage, chemicals and more. This water seeps into any absorbable material, such as rugs and carpets, drywall and countless other materials. Once water has been sitting for 24 hours, it is very difficult to salvage these materials, so the faster we get to the flood affected area, the better chance we have to save your property.
No matter the extent of the flood damage, Seaside Restoration is qualified to clean up and restore your property, making it safe for you and your family.

When you call Seaside Restoration, we dispatch a trained flood damage specialist to conduct a comprehensive inspection and assessment before restoring affected areas. The flood damage inspection identifies both the origin and the severity of the damage. Our estimate process allows us the ability to provide you with an accurate scope of the restoration project.
After identifying the cause of flooding, we shut off the source to prevent further issues. Next, flood water extraction begins with industrial strength equipment machines run around the clock. This decreases the damages and saves your property, time and money.
Depending on whether your damage comes from clean water (like a busted fresh water pipe) or black water (like a sewage backup) flood damage cleanup will differ. Regardless, we ascertain the structural integrity of saturated building materials, removing irreparable items. Beyond this, if black or grey water is involved, we clean and disinfect affected materials once everything has been tried.
