Water Damage Cleanup Tips
You just got back from buying a ton of school supplies for the kiddo’s . Step into the house and *SPLASH*. A hose from one of the appliances broke. There’s water everywhere! Well, you can’t just stand around and do nothing, right? You’ve got to get moving and quick. The faster you work, the less you’ll have to worry about in the end.
Don’t use anything electrical, especially not when removing the water. You may end up in a lot of pain if you don’t know what you’re doing. The best thing to do, call the professionals at your local water restoration company. Our water damage cleanup professionals know all the steps to take, how to execute them, and how to restore your home to its original state.
If there are items that weren’t affected by the water, take them out immediately. This will decrease the chance of mold growth on the items. Mold growth can begin in as little as 48 hours. Because of this, carpeting must be taken care of as soon as possible. It’s one of the areas that’s most prone to mold growth. Drywall may also take to mold. As long as there’s no swelling/deformities you should be able to replace and cover it well.
Water extraction needs to be done as soon as possible. Even after the water has been removed, there will still be excess water within the floors and cracks in the home. This is where a lot of people mess up. Most don’t think about this excess water and end up trying to repair a wet home! Dry out the home with fans, blowers and dehumidifiers. Make sure you air out the place by opening doors, windows, and cabinets.
The water damage restoration process will vary, but the same accomplishment will be waiting at the end for each, the complete restoration. To ensure yourself a great job done right the first time, call in our water damage professionals. With all the experience they carry with them, it’s not hard to figure out, they’ll take care of you.
