Water damage can destroy your home or business and devastate your life. And this can happen in a matter of hours, not days let alone weeks. 

In order to protect your property, you need an experienced, committed water damage restoration professional in the aftermath of a flood or similar incident. The Eco Bear team is part of the community. If there is a major weather event, we likely have experienced it with you. We understand how challenging other types of water incidents and flooding can be for you. 

Simply put – we are here for you when a water-related issue or flood looks and feels tremendously overwhelming. 

Common Types of Flooding: Ways Water Can Impact Your Home or Business

The team at Eco Bear has taken on all types of flooding. We’ve made homes livable and businesses operational after a wide range of different flood events that include:

  • Weather-related floods
  • Pipe breakage
  • Sewage backup and breakdowns
  • Shower, tub, sink breakdowns
  • Hot water heater failures
  • Other types of water emergencies

Vital Importance of Water Damage Restoration Rapid Response

Rapid response is fundamental when it comes to protecting your home and the things in it after a flood or other type of damaging water event. The longer the physical structure of your home remains saturated with water, the greater the damage that will be sustained to your property. In addition, the longer items in your home remain wet after a flood, the less likely it will be that these objects can be saved.

If you’re the victim of a severe weather event, pipe rupture, sewage malfunction, or other water-related event, you must eliminate water and high humidity from your home or business within a 24 to 48 hour period of time, if at all possible. The experienced, committed water restoration professionals at Eco Bear have the training and equipment necessary to make this possible. The Eco Bear rapid response water damage restoration team is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including all major holidays, by calling us at (818) 358-4359.

Flooding and Health Hazards

Different types of flooding and water-related incidents can expose a home or business owner to what can prove to be serious health hazards. This includes not only incidents involving sewage or septic system breakdowns but also the aftermath of weather-related flooding. Storm floodwater nearly always contains such harmful substances like raw sewage and toxic chemicals. 

Examples of dangerous pathogens that can be found in floodwater includes:

  • C. diff
  • Cholera
  • E. coli
  • Norovirus
  • Dysentery
  • Giardia 
  • Salmonella
  • Hookworm
  • Ringworm
  • Tapeworm

Flooding Cleanup, Water Damage Remediation, and Your Health and Safety

Because floodwaters can contain hazardous pathogens and other dangerous substances, water damage restoration oftentimes also requires biohazard remediation. The fact is that not all companies in the business of water damage restoration have a meaningful background in biohazard remediation.

Eco Bear has made its mark in biohazard remediation in Southern California and elsewhere. As a result, our experienced team of water damage remediation specialists are trained in all aspects of biohazard remediation as well. 

Primary Steps of Water Damage Restoration at Your Home or Business

The first step of water damage restoration at your home or business is to commence a rapid, comprehensive, thorough drying process. The objective is to endeavor to dry a home or business that has been flooded for some reason within a period of between 24 and 48 hours whenever possible. 

Certainly, a home or business owner would exercise all due diligence to accomplish this crucial phase of water damage restoration within this optimal time period. The reality is that a typical home or business owner doesn’t have the experience necessary to oversee this level of water elimination in a swift manner. In addition, specialized equipment is needed to affect a rapid drying of a home or business. Best intentions are laudable. However, as discussed previously, saving your home or business and objects in the premises from more severe water damage requires more than a willingness to do your best. In the end, you will want done what is necessary to protect your property.
