San Diego Water Damage Interview with Gold Coast Flood Restorations Owner Joe Columbo
Has your home suffered from water damage whether by a flood or a broken water pipe; or even a hose? Quick response can minimize the damage.
By: Joe Columbo
The San Diego flood restoration pro tells it like it is in his own words. "Studies have shown that you’re almost guaranteed to experience water damage at some point in your life. People tell me all the time that it doesn’t rain much in San Diego. Why so much concern over flooding? In reality most water damage occurs from a failure in a plumbing system. Such as a broken pipe in the wall or a clog in the sewer line causes a back up."
Whether it’s a big problem or a little problem, you need to deal with water damage immediately. Water damage worsens as time passes. Just because a wall doesn’t look wet or feel wet that does not necessarily mean it’s not wet, especially on the inside.
Columbo continues, "We use a moisture meter to detect moisture hidden inside walls. The longer it sits the worse it can get. Mold can start growing in as little as 24 hours so time is definitely of the essence after a flood or when a water leak is detected."
Experts agree, if you delay in dealing with a water leak or flood problem then you can certainly bet that you will end up with a mold issue because of the short time it takes for mold to grow and cause damage.
At Gold Coast Flood Restorations they specialize in handling mold remediation problems. The San Diego flood restoration and mold remediation specialist, Joe Columbo, recommends that if you discover you have a mold growth problem then Call Gold Coast Flood to come out and do an evaluation. Improper handling of a mold problem can have serious adverse affects on the structure and contents of a dwelling. And for the health of people and pets living within a mold infested environment, mold remediation services are required.
Of course water damage repairs can add up to a whole lot of costly expenses. We asked Columbo, who pays for it? Out of pocket expense or home owners insurance?
Columbo answered, "Many times it is the case that home owners insurance can pay the bill but we’ve seen that it is dealt with on a case-by-case basis with the insurance companies depending on the unique circumstances of each case. Here’s an important thing for home owners to know: You have a right to use the flood restoration company that you want to fix the water damage, do the flood restoration and the mold remediation. Home owners don’t have to use the contractors the insurance company wants them to use."
