Water Removal Techniques
My home is flooded. What should be done?
Water removal can be a tedious process. There are many causes for a flooded home or business. They can range from a severe storm, broken water heater, burst washing machine hose, or frozen pipe. Whatever the cause may be, immediate action is required. The faster this is done, the less water damage will be incurred. If the area is carpeted, it’s important to pull up the carpet and pad. In some cases, the carpet can be salvaged, but it’s a good idea to have the pad replaced to avoid mold or mildew. Any standing water will need to be pumped and vacuumed out as quickly as possible. After the majority of the water is out, a combination of commercial grade blower fans and dehumidifiers should be used to dry the area. This process can take a few days, but it is the best way to minimize the damages from a flood. The faster this process is started the less damage to your floors, walls, trim, and the overall structure of your home. It’s important to choose a water restoration company that can act immediately.
