Water Damage Restoration
Water damage is an enigma all its own. Water has the uncanny ability to actually be more destructive than fire in many cases. The reason is simple; fire confines itself to one area. Water continues to cause damage and problems for as long as it is allowed to stand. If your home is the victim of a flash flood or a burst pipe, it is important to begin water damage restoration or flood damage restoration procedures as soon as possible.
The excess or standing water should be removed, ideally using gas powered or submersible pumps. Be sure to remove the water through a sink or drainage vent. Don’t just dump it in your yard. After this is done, surfaces and carpets will still retain moisture, which can be removed by circulating as much air as possible. Open windows and doors, and use fans, blowers, and dehumidifiers to get the air moving and pull the remaining moisture out.
Failure to properly dry everything can result in the onset of black mold, which can prove very difficult to remediate and can cause serious health issues.
