At Kelmann Restoration, we work with a variety of different types of home remodeling projects. People tend to think of renovations as being all about Pinterest boards and cool-looking rooms. However, it’s much more than that. Here are five of the most common reasons people are likely to call us for our renovation services.

1. Basement Flooding

If there’s anything that our job as restoration contractors in Wisconsin has taught us, it’s that we’re all fair game—especially for those of us with basements! In fact, water damage will come to 98 percent of basements within their lifetime. If this happens to you, it could potentially lead to a disastrous situation—exposed wires getting wet, possessions being ruined, mold, etc. If you end up coming home one day to this unfortunate circumstance, apply these five steps.

After you’ve done all of these steps, assess the situation. You’ll most likely need to have your basement renovated. Luckily, we are experts at water extraction and reconstruction.

2. Fire and Smoke Damage

Fire and smoke damage can make a home uninhabitable. House fires can be caused by electrical issues, neglected candles or fireplaces, wildfires, and a multitude of other variables. Typically, smoke damage comes along with fire damage but it can also be caused by excessive cigarette smoking. Keep our fire damage restoration process in mind in case you ever experience a house fire.

3. Wind and Storm Damagetree on home due to wind damageMother Nature can be fierce! Her high winds, hail, and overall stormy personality gets unleashed upon us from time to time. Here in Wisconsin, we battle her tornadoes and winter storms and, thanks to our sturdy houses, we tend to weather through it all quite well. However, our homes definitely take a hit. A good storm can rip your home’s roof and siding to shreds, leaving you vulnerable and subject to leaks, insulation loss, and other damage. That’s why it’s important to do everything you can to protect your home prior to a storm coming.

4. Mold Remediation

Although it’s possible to find mold in your home throughout the year, it’s more common during the summer season. The warmer weather can make your home feel more humid. This creates the perfect environment to foster mold growth and, therefore, a huge health hazard. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mold can lead to respiratory issues and lung infections as well as other side-effects. If you’re healthy but have been experiencing the following symptoms, there just might be mold in your home:

  • Nasal stuffiness
  • Throat irritation
  • Coughing or wheezing
  • Eye irritation
  • Skin irritation

Don’t feel like you should just live with the effects of mold in your home. Our contractors can get rid of the mold for you and help make your home a healthier place to live through our remediation services.

5. Personal Desire

Damage isn’t the only reason for getting your home remodeled. Many people seek out renovation services simply because they want to improve their home. Perhaps they’d like to update it to more modern style, increase the amount of usable space, or raise the overall value of their home.
