Water Damage

Flood Restoration and Water Damage Repair

Water leaks, it’s an official nightmare for both property owners and property managers. Regardless of size, it can rapidly escalate causing vast amounts of damage, both obvious and the not-so-obvious. Leaks and floods need to be dealt with as quickly as possible to help limit the effects it may have. This results in lower costs and minimizes any disruptions.

We are pleased to offer flood restoration services in Edmonton and have complete competence that is needed in order to repair any flood water damage that may have been caused to your property.

Water has the ability to not only corrode but it can also encourage the breeding of life forms such as bacteria and mold. Then of course, there are other issues such as damage caused by swelling which can lead to cracks. There is also the danger that can arise from water getting into electrical componenets.

Drain Backup

Edmonton has been subject to significant rain falls every now and then. At times, city drains can’t handle extreme levels of rain and as a result, it backflows into your home or place of business. This can be unexpected and cause severe damage to you are unprepared for. Ensure that you have a backup valve installed to prevent overflow of water from entering your home or property.

Burst Pipe

Due to extreme cold weather in Edmonton, burst pipes are a very common scenario. In many cases, this can be covered by insurance, but it is still an unpleasant situation. Because pipes are overhead, water will always travel down and can affect many areas of your home or business. Be sure that your piping is insulated and that your heating system is left on during cold temperatures.

Foundation Cracks

Many homes in Edmonton have a unique, historic look that we all love. However, there are negatives to living in an older home. Primarily the foundation and structure being to deteriorate, which can cause expensive to repair, water damage. If foundations however, are maintained properly, there should be no issues, but it only takes one small crack for water to start infiltrating. If you live in an older home, bring in a company that can inspect your foundation and ensure that there is proper waterproofing and no cracks.

Damp Basements

As stated above, Edmonton homes are often left with dirt basements or basement floors that are unfinished. This can cause additional moisture issues don’t often lead to water damage but can lead to mold growth. Mold can be just as damaging as water. If you have an unfinished basement, seriously consider insulating and having a good vapor barrier. If you know your basement is damp, install dehumidifiers to remove any excess moisture.

Our Process

In most cases it’s will be pretty obvious that you have water leaking behind your walls or onto the ceiling from above. Your walls or ceiling may show some damage and visible signs of moisture, dripping water or signs of failing structural integrity. Ceiling drywall panels may sag or crumble under the weight of water that saturates the naturally porous gypsum material. Other times, you may notice what appears to be signs of coffee-colored stains that expand over time.

Prior to making any sort of repairs you will need to locate the source of the water leak. It can be a frustrating process, but if you don’t fix the source of the water problem first, repairing it will be a pointless process. Locating the leak can be a difficult process, whether It’s a leaky roof, a broken pipe or leaking toilet, the source has to be located as a first step. This means you will have explore and possibly bring down some dry wall or ceiling tiles to locate the leak and dry out the water damaged space.


Depending on how long the leak has hone unchecked, there may be mod present in or on the drywall. Some mold, such as “black mold” will have to be removed because it may be extremely toxic, especially in large amounts. We can’t stress enough about how important it is to remove this from your home or office.

If the amount of mold present is small, it will be relatively safe to remove the moldy drywall yourself, but be sure to take precautions. Wear gloves, safety goggles and a dust mask so that you don’t breathe in the mold.

Remove Water-Damaged Dry Wall

Prior to demolition and removal of any drywall, be sure to lay down some drop cloths or tape to catch all the drywall pieces, debris and dust created during this process. This will make cleanup easy and protect of surfaces from the dust and mess.

Check the drywall to see how much damage has been done. If damage is extensive, wallboard will sag from ceilings and eventually crumble to the touch. ' Remove all compromised drywall by hand or use the claw end of a hammer or a wrecking bar to help remove it. If drywall panels show water stains, but aren’t structurally compromised, they may be repairable but remove just the damaged portion for replacement. When cutting out around the damaged are, use a keyhole saw and cut the hole into a square shape. Patches can be made with another piece of drywall for repair.

Making Repairs

To replace the drywall, use the dimensions from the piece you cut out from the previous step. Lay the replacement drywall on a flat surface, with the backside facing up. Measure in one inch from all four edges and draw a line using a pencil. This should form a shape the size of a hole. Then, using a straight line utility knife, cut through the backside paper and the drywall gypsum, but no the front-facing layer of paper. Using a putty knife, peel away only the backside paper and gypsum layer. Be careful not to tear the front-facing paper.

Holes larger than six inches and up to twelve inches, require a slightly different process because the patch requires more support. For this we would use a drill, create two small holes through the piece of replacement board. Feed a piece of string through and tie both ends to the middle of a stick. Allow for about eight inches of excess string between the board and the stick. The stick side of the board will be the front. The stick will be used to hold the patch into the hole and position it so the cement adhesive firmly grips the solid area around the rear of the hole. Turn the stick clockwise, while twisting the string and increase pressure against the patch board at the rear of the hole. This will the board in place until cement adhesive dries.

Prime and Paint

Next, we need to apply sealer using a primer sealing product with a large role applicator or a brush. Be sure to cover the entire surface of the wall.

Clean Up

Close your paint cans, pick up the drop cloths and use a shop vacuum to clean up the dust and debris. Dispose of used paint cans accordingly and clean paintbrushes and other tools easily with warm and soapy water. Thoroughly rinse your roller covers and brushes in water until the water runs clear and then place them in a brush/rollers spinner, if you have one, to remove any excess liquid. When you remove your drop cloths, use caution as to not spread around any paint that may have gotten on them. Removing any tape should be done on fourth-five degree angle to avoid damaging any fresh paint and keep in mind that the longer is stays on, the harder it is to remove.
