Water Damage Cleaning
If you have had even one experience with cleaning water
damage in your home or business, then you know what an incredible pain it can
be to do right. Even a minimal spill can
leave a permanent mark if not treated correctly. Larger spills can occur without warning, and
since water doesn’t make a noise, or have a distinctive smell like fire/smoke,
many times the damage is done before you are even aware there is a problem.
The first step in water damage cleaning is to remove the
excess water from your home. If the
damage is minimal, you should be able to remove most of it with a wet-dry vac
unit. Submersible pumps are ideal for
removing large quantities of flood water.
Once the water is out, surfaces and carpeting will still
retain a good bit of moisture. This can
be removed by opening all doors and windows as well as using fans and blowers
to circulate as much air as possible.
Dehumidifiers will remove moisture from the air, and moisture meters can
be used to determine when acceptable levels of humidity are reached.
Carpets need to be taken up and cleaned, as well as the
flooring beneath. Be sure to check
within wall structures for moisture, as well as basements and crawlspaces. Unchecked water combined with moisture is a
breeding ground for mold, which can spread quickly and prove very difficult to
