What Is Water Damage Restoration?
Water damage restoration describes the process of cleaning water damage. Water damage restoration is often referred to as water remediation, water removal, water extraction, water mitigation, and flood cleanup. Whether you’ve endured minimal water damage or severe flood damage, we can help.
Signs Of Water Damage
No one wants their property to have water damage, as it can cause numerous costly expenses to arise and various health concerns as well. Some common signs of water damage include the following:
- Roof damage
- Mould growth
- Various leaks and puddles
- Sounds of running water
- Musty or mouldy smells
- Increased water bills
- Sudden dampness or humidity
- Dark or wet spots on walls or ceilings
- Cracking or flaking on walls or ceilings
What To Do If You Notice Water Damage
Suppose you notice water damage in your British Columbian or Alberta property. In that case, the first step is to identify where the water is coming from. The source can be anything from flash flooding to a leaky roof, fire sprinklers, a faulty appliance, a burst pipe or broken water main, or even a sewer backup. Once you identify where the water is coming from, stop the flow of water if possible. If you aren’t able to, contact Canstar Fire & Flood. Next, secure the area. If accessible and safe, remove all wet items from the site, including furniture, carpets, and loose items like toys. Open windows or use central air to help reduce humidity and keep your system fan turned on. Then, if you haven’t already, contact our water damage restoration company. It’s also important to report the damage, begin the claim process, and contact your insurance company at your earliest convenience.
Locate the source of the water and if possible, stop it. Can’t? Call a plumber, or us. See list of preferred plumbers.

We Offer 24/7 Emergency Water Damage Restoration
Canstar Fire & Flood offers 24/7 emergency services for your convenience. Our expert team will arrive at your property and begin water removal when you have an emergency, followed by the drying process. The drying process can take anywhere from four to six days to be completed. We will also help you remove your belongings, clean them, and store them. Depending on the extent of their water damage, though, some things may need to be replaced. From there, we will scope the area and provide you with an estimate for final repairs and handle any of your reconstruction needs, such as structural repairs, drywall and paint repairs, and flooring repairs or replacement.
What Canstar Fire & Flood Can Do To Help
If water damage restoration is delayed or ignored, you risk more significant problems presenting themselves. These problems can include mould, mildew, bacterial growth, electrical hazards, deterioration of flooring, as well as rotting and permanent damage to your belongings and even your property’s structure or foundation. To help your water damage situation as soon as possible, get in touch with Canstar Fire & Flood professionals to help dry and repair the existing building materials rather than remove and replace them. This minimizes the amount of demolition and is less expensive and more environmentally sound.
