    Identifying the Damages and Extracting Them

    When dealing with sewage backups or floods, two things need to happen: identifying the damage and extracting the damage. The first step is identifying the extent of the damage. That means determining which areas have been flooded and which areas have been impacted by sewage.

    Next, you’ll want to extract the damage. You’ll need to take out all of the contents from the affected area to do so. While removing these items, you’ll want to keep them safe until they’re dry. Once everything is removed, you’ll have to clean the area thoroughly. Be sure to clean the walls, floor, and furniture as well.

    What Can Be Done After Sewage Backup or Flood Damage?

    After sewage backup or flooding, there are several steps you can take to help prevent further damage:

    1. First, ensure that the area is dry.
    2. You’ll want to move all of the furniture back into place.
    3. Finally, you’ll want to check your home for leaks.

    You’ll also want to make sure that the area isn’t damp. For instance, if you live in an apartment building, you should ensure that the entire floor is not wet. In addition, you’ll want to inspect pipes and appliances for signs of leakage.

    Causes and Effects

    Sewage backups occur when a pipe bursts or breaks. When this happens, the sewage begins to leak into other parts of the house. One common cause of sewer line breakage is tree roots growing inside the pipe. Another common reason is construction projects that disturb the soil underneath the pipe.

    Another possible source of sewage backups is a burst pipe. The sewage will flow through cracks in the ground and enter the basement or crawl space if this occurs. You may notice a foul smell coming from the basement or crawl space.

    How to Prevent Sewage Backups or Flows

    There are many ways to prevent sewage backups or flows. First, you’ll want to install a sump pump in your basement or crawlspace. These pumps are designed to pull water away from the foundation. Doing so reduces the chance of sewage entering the basement or crawlspace.

    In addition, you’ll want our professionals to perform regular maintenance on your sewage system. They’ll be able to detect any problems before they become serious.

    Flooding

    When a flood strikes, you’ll need to act fast. Start by shutting off the main valves in your home. That will stop the flow of water into your home. Next, you’ll want to evacuate everyone from home.

    Once everything is evacuated, you’ll want to contact emergency services. They’ll come to assess the situation and provide assistance. Once the floodwaters recede, you’ll want to clean up the mess.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Reztor Restoration guarantees to respond fast to emergencies. We respond within one hour of your call so that the mess left by disasters is dealt with promptly in order to prevent or minimise the extent of water damage.

    Yes.

    In terms of damage caused, water from rivers and water from the ocean is the same in that both are categorised as a cause of black water damage.

    No. You can never truly tell what’s in fish tank water.


    The water that comes from fish tanks contains bacteria and other harmful elements that can cause sickness in humans. The same liquid can seep into porous materials such as carpets and wall sheeting.

    Any type of water damage must be dealt with as soon as possible. 

    Inaction, or failing to act within 48 hours, increases your risk of losing your items to irreversible decay, timber rot, and mould infestations.

    Black water damage is damage due to water that involves sewage, floodwater, and other sources that are likely to contain faecal matter. This kind of water causes extreme kinds of structural and microbial damage.

    Yes.

    Clean water is water that contains little to no contamination. Grey water is general wastewater that is free of faecal matter.

    It’s important to remember that different types of water cause different kinds of damage. A specialist should be able to identify the type of water present in the affected areas.

    You’re better off hiring professionals. 

    Reztor technicians have the necessary training and experience to deal with whatever water damage issue you may have. They can do a more efficient job at drying your carpets.

    Water extraction is a task of primary importance when dealing with flooding or water damage incidents. Call Reztor and let us deal with the problem for you.

    A drying plan is a key component in a restorer’s strategy for restoring the building. Adhering to a drying plan means that a restorer is more likely to keep focused on the tasks that need to be done.

    We are open for calls on any day, any time of day.

    Our lines are open 24/7 365. Call us to work on emergencies, and we will be at your address within one hour as part of our ‘1-hour rapid response’ guarantee.

    There are dangers to water extraction that the general public is not aware of. Upon entering your home, water may already be contaminated by life-threatening bacteria, mould, or even deadly toxins from metal corrosion. In these cases, don't run the risk of getting yourself exposed to these dangers. Call professionals to deal with it instead.

    Absolutely! Our in-house technicians have the proper training and are assigned to the job you request. 

     

    A project manager supervises these technicians who keep tabs on what work is done and when. They work as a team and are adaptable, friendly, and highly knowledgeable on all things restoration and repair.

    The project manager we assign for each specific case handles client information.

    It ensures that your information is taken care of and organised for easy access for your convenience. 

     

    Further, our company insists on being transparent with you during the whole restoration process, from start to finish. We'll explain whatever we do and keep you updated on our progress.

    We have a 1-hour rapid response guaranteed when you call us to work on water damage emergencies.

    We have the proper equipment and technology to get affected premises dry as quickly as possible for a rapid response. We are a fully-equipped and licensed restoration company in Aroona.

    Before our professional can come in to take charge of your water damage situation, make sure to consider the weather could help or antagonise the drying efforts that will take place. Do check if rain could find itself indoors. Shut off the water at the source or minimise the amount of water that could get to your carpet. 

     

    If you have them available and cannot take out your carpet from where it is, place fans and dehumidifiers in the area where the carpet lies. That is done to promote air circulation and air evaporation. Thus, it will help your wet carpet dry quicker.

    Also, consider whether your carpet has padding underneath and check if it is saturated with moisture. When this padding gets wet, mould spores may also attach to it and make it home. Mould can multiply exponentially overnight when not dealt with as soon as possible. Remove the said padding and let it dry if possible.

     

    Do not use a regular home vacuum cleaner to suck up the water. Likely, the vacuum you have is not the kind that is used for water suction.

    Do these preliminary steps so you can minimise the damage done to your carpet when faced with water damage emergencies.

    Considering that every job is different, a turnaround time of 3-4 days is an average for our flood clean-up service.

    We are a leading restoration company in Aroona that can reach your property within the hour. We have a maximum response time of around 1-2 hours for water damage emergencies.

    Letting your property dry out on its own is NOT a good option. Mould could grow on your items, and building materials can swell and rot when you do an improper drying job.

    Avoid these issues by hiring experts who know what they're doing, like Reztor. Before we start drying, we first conduct a thorough and detailed assessment. We also prepare the necessary paperwork before and while we work.

    You'll save money when you get specialists who have the right tools and knowledge for the job. That is because further damage to your properties that could lead you to throw them away is prevented, and the integrity of what remains is preserved.

    There are three types of water: clean water, greywater, and black water.

    A primary task of technicians is to identify the type of water present in the affected areas. Knowing the kind of water at play can adequately assess and anticipate the type of damage it could potentially cause and the necessary equipment that he should use.

    Clean water originates from a potable (drinking) source. It is entirely safe to use and can be used without any concern. That is why it is best to use it in water damage emergencies.

    Greywater comes from the kitchen sink and bathroom washbasin. It contains soap, shampoo, detergents, and other contaminated materials similar to clean water in terms of sanitation but not for everyday usage.

    Blackwater comes from the toilet or urinal. It is highly unsanitary and should only be used for handling greywater tasks. That is why you must not use it in the kitchen or bathroom.

    Yes. Different kinds of water cause different kinds of damage. Water that is free of sewage and harmful toxins causes clean water damage. That type of damage is the least severe.

    On the other hand, water spewed from appliances and fixtures such as washing machines, toilets, and pumps cause grey water damage. Direct contact with greywater poses some harm to humans. To be disinfected before reuse, it may be necessary to remove any affected items by greywater.

    Water that involves sewage, floodwater, ocean water, including water from other natural sources, which could cause extreme damage, both structural and microbial causes black water damage. It would be best to act fast when dealing with black water. Disinfection of the affected areas and items will be necessary when dealing with black water damage.

    The team will first conduct an initial inspection once they arrive. Our team can then set an action plan upon gathering the necessary information. In addition, we will make estimates and give you a quotation for works that they deem necessary. Once approved, we will immediately prevent secondary damage such as mould and bacteria.

    Aside from floods, your property in Aroona is at risk to suffer water damage from other causes. These causes include, but are not limited to, burst pipe, pipe leakage, appliance mishap, faulty fire sprinkler system, to name a few.

    Our team of professionals can adequately assess your property to determine the cause of water damage and what is needed to repair it. We also compare the kind of damage you are getting with the kind of repairs we will do, which will help you determine a better solution for your problem.

    Specialised equipment is necessary to work with different kinds of water. It is not well known, but the fact is that water is prone to contamination of life-threatening bacteria, mould, or toxins from metal corrosion.

    It is best to know what you are dealing with before attempting anything. By hiring Reztor, you are ensured of your family's safety and your property. Your property is in good hands with us. Our team is well-trained to assess your problem and give you a safe and cost-effective solution.

    Visible and internal structural damage and microbial growth are some kinds of damage that await property that isn't taken care of at once. Delaying protective measures by even a few hours could aggravate damage to your property in the long term. Time is of the essence when you're up against flooding. 

    Several health risks may also arise because of this for you, your family, or your business. However, you can avoid health dangers by preparing for flood events.

    You stand to suffer potential losses that you might not be able to afford and a decrease in the property's value when you delay protective measures by even a few hours once your property in Aroona is hit and submerged in flood. That can cause irreversible structural damage to your property. Like mould and mildew growth, health risks could also arise from this mishap.

    Don't take that risk! Have specialists that could take the necessary steps to clean up the mess left by floods.

    A project manager is on the job for every job to keep tabs. It's our way to make sure you know what work is done and how much you'll be charged. You won't pay any hidden charges when Reztor is on the case. Reztor offers diverse options to improve efficiency without sacrificing quality.

    Unless you're a certified water damage restorer and have the necessary tools and specialised equipment needed for the job, you're better off hiring Reztor. 

    Our technicians have the necessary training and experience to deal with whatever water damage issue you may have. In addition, we could do a more efficient job at drying your carpets. As a result, you could avoid causing unnecessary harm to your belongings when you hire Reztor for the job.

    The answer might surprise you. Flooding due to a burst pipe or during pipe fittings is the most common cause of flooding in Aroona. Meanwhile, flooding due to rain is less common by comparison. 

    Flooding is more likely to happen when your property has poor drainage or poorly installed plumbing or structures. Fixing pipe leaks and not letting other problems happen could diminish the chances of flooding.

     

    Our company guarantees a 1-hour rapid response from the time you call in cases of water damage emergencies. Expect prompt, rapid service during emergencies when you call Reztor.
