Water Damage

Drying and dehumidification of walls and floors is an important process after any flood to minimise damage. We at Master Service Group carry out a complete structural drying program. This will involve the use of water extraction machines, air movers and dehumudifiers. We regularly monitor the moisture levels in the room to the point where we have removed all moisture.


Whether it’s a major event like a flood or sewage backup or something seemingly more minor like a pipe break or leaky appliance, water damage can wreak great havoc on your home – and the extent of the damage is only likely to increase the longer the issue remains untreated. What’s more is that the presence of water and humidity is also likely to give way to eventual mold growth – and usually within 24-48 hours under the right conditions. That’s why it’s so important to have professional, experienced water damage restoration professionals out to your property in a timely manner. Failure to do so may not only to lead to more widespread damage, but it’s also likely to take a toll on your health.

That’s where our expertise comes into play. As IICRC-certified professionals that follow all of the industry standards when it comes to water damage restoration and mold remediation, we utilize all of the latest tools and equipment to restore your water damaged property to a pre-loss condition. We’ll also help you identify the source of water intrusion so that the necessary steps can be taken to ensure that the issue doesn’t occur again. In addition to extracting water from your property, we specialize in drying even the most hard to reach areas of home and buildings, such as wall cavities and other areas that may harbor hidden water damage. Every water damage job is different, so it’s important to have a professional out to your property as soon as you notice a problem so that the extent of the damage can be assessed and a plan can be put into place to restore the property and prevent mold growth.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a business owner or a homeowner, it’s absolutely essential to have a professional on scene immediately so that extraction and then dehumidification can begin as soon as possible. Dehumidification helps to control the air quality and eliminate the secondary damages that occur with the onset of water damage, and elevated humidity spreads throughout the structure with every minute that it’s left untreated. This has to potential to give way to mold growth, even in non-affected areas. Aside from a greater likelihood of mold growth, high humidity can also damage electronic devices (i.e. computers, printers, servers, security devices, etc.), which can be especially problematic for businesses with on-site servers and electronics. For homeowners, high humidity can take its toll on clothing and other items. Arguably most importantly, high humidity can also become a fire hazard and increase the risk of electrical shock.

Bottom line – water damage restoration isn’t just pumping out the water, drying affected areas with towels and putting up some fans to eliminate moisture. No, it’s a complicated project that requires a lot of sophisticated equipment and the right know-how. At Master Service Group, we have it all.
