Water Damage Repair

If your home’s suffered from a leak or flood, it’s incredibly difficult to fix water damage yourself. Luckily our team are on hand to help you!

Can water damage be fixed?

Water damage is a common problem for many northern UK residents, as our climate can be quite wet. While you might think that persistent moisture, water stains, rust, and other water damage is something you just have to live with, it’s an easily fixed problem.

And you shouldn’t have to live with it. Water damage can be tricky because it can seep into walls, floors, and other structures, causing long-term damage that may not be visible at first glance. However, it’s important to understand that even small amounts of water can lead to bigger problems down the line, such as mould growth and structural damage.

Another reason why some UK residents feel that they have to live with water damage is that they may be afraid of the cost of repairs. But the fact remains that the longer the damage is left untreated, the more expensive it can become. It’s important to address water damage as soon as possible to prevent further damage and mitigate repair costs.

At Northern Restorations, we can help with your water damage repairs. Our professionals have the tools, knowledge, and experience to assess the extent of the damage and create a plan to fix it. We can also work with your insurance companies to help cover the cost of repairs.

The most common issues that we see include:

Why you should repair water damage as fast as possible

Water damage is a serious issue that can cause significant harm to your home or business. If left untreated, it can worsen and lead to a variety of costly structural and health problems.

A major concern of a lingering moisture problem is that it promotes the growth of mould and mildew. Over time, these organisms can spread and cause damage to walls, floors, and other structures. They can also cause respiratory health problems for residents and customers.

Structurally, water can weaken the integrity of your building. When water penetrates walls or floors, it causes them to warp, buckle, or crack. Over time, this can lead to dangerous situations, for example, causing the mortar holding bricks together to deteriorate and potentially collapse.

Another concern for untreated water damage is when it comes into contact with electrical wiring or appliances. Water is a conductor of electricity and can be a serious safety hazard, leading to electrical fires or shocks.

Finally, untreated water damage can cause significant damage to your personal property, ruining furniture, carpets, and other household items. When considering the cost of water damage repair, compare it to the cost of replacing these items… or to how much you value the health of everyone you live with.

Can you just paint over water damage?

Can you just paint over water damage?

Painting over water damage is not a good idea, as it can lead to further damage and even exacerbate the problem. Even if the water damage appears to be minor and cosmetic, such as a small stain or discoloration, it’s important to address the underlying issue before attempting to paint over it.

Not only does paint not solve a potential mould problem, it can also create an uneven surface that is prone to cracking, peeling, and flaking. And untreated moisture can cause paint to separate from the surface, exposing the problem all over again.

To properly address water damage, it’s important to identify and fix the underlying issue. This may involve repairing plumbing or drainage systems, drying out affected areas, and removing any mould or mildew growth. Once the damage has been properly addressed, the surface can be repaired and repainted, providing a safe and long-lasting solution.

Our Flood Restoration Services

What Can You Expect From Our Team?

Whether caused by natural events, a leaking roof, or faulty plumbing or appliances, Northern Restorations has highly experienced teams of experts and state-of-the-art equipment to address your water damage problems.

Our services include comprehensive assessments to develop a detailed water damage repair plan; water removal if necessary; thorough and targeted drying, using state-of-the-art, energy-efficient drying equipment to ensure damaged surfaces and materials are thoroughly dried; dehumidifying with industrial-strength machines to remove excess moisture from the air to prevent mould growth and rot; and sanitising all affected surfaces to deodorise and further mitigate mould growth.

Finally, our professionals can repair or replace any damaged materials, such as drywall, flooring, tiling, or insulation, to restore the affected area to its pre-damage condition. The key to repairing a water damaged tile floor is to check the substrate, such as concrete or backerboard. If there is damage, the substrate will need to be repaired or replaced and new tiles installed. The final step is to grout the new tiles and seal them to prevent future water damage.

If your business has water damage, our commercial water damage repair services include advanced water extraction, industrial-strength structural drying and dehumidifying, extensive deodorising, and clean-up and repair of water-damaged equipment and items.
