Water Damage Response
When water damage hits your home, it could be something as small as a leaky pipe, or as large as a flood. Either way, it must be taken care of as soon as possible. The water must be removed from the home before it causes any more problems than it needs to. The sooner, the better in this scenario.
The first thing you want to achieve in this process would be water extraction. Certain things need more attention than others. For example, a drippy faucet or a spilled drink can both be taken care of with some paper towels, a rag, or even a mop. Others such as overflowing or flooding need more than just a rag to cleanup. A wet vac will be the most beneficial in this case. It will be much faster and more efficient than anything else you could use. Don’t get too excited though. Even though you can’t see any more water, doesn’t mean there isn’t any.
Moisture tends to sneak its way into the flooring of your home. It’s important to dry out any area of the home or business that has been hit with water damage. Mold, discoloration, and warping are all problems that can occur when areas are not properly dried out. You can start with get a good air circulation going throughout the home. Opening doors, windows, cupboards, even drawers will help. You can speed up the drying process with blowers, fans, anything that will blow the air around.
