Introduction To Equipment Used By Water Damage Companies

Aug 4, 2008
There are basically two different reasons that a home will be flooded and that is because of a plumbing break or flooding caused by a natural disaster. Either one can cause flooding on a minor scale or a large scale. You are never prepared for either and it always causes damage and terrible inconvenience. The other side effect is the expense you will have to repair the damage done by either one of these tragic events.

When a home gets flooded because of a plumbing break and is caught before it causes any damage or has deposited less than an inch of water on the floor, you might very well be able to clean it up yourself with so side effects from it. When it leaves an inch or more of water on the floors and has your carpeting soaked as well as hardwood floors and linoleum, you should call in a water damage company to clean it up.

A water damage company will have the professional equipment that will be needed to get the water up and out of your home quickly. Usually a water damage company will have truck mounted vacuums that are powerful enough to clean the water up far faster than you could sweep it out or using a standard size wet vacuum. A good water damage team will remove the affected belongings from your home before they begin removing the water and then return them when they are done.

Hardwood floors, baseboards, carpeting, and other surfaces will need to be dried out as quickly as possible to prevent mold. Water damage experts will bring dehumidifiers and air blowers to help speed up the drying process. Once mold has started to grow in the home, it is a tragedy all on its own.

Flooding that is caused by Mother Nature or a sewer line that backs up into the home must be handled a little differently than clean water flooding. This kind of flooding is filled with germs, bacteria, and sometimes chemicals that are brought into the home and contaminates everything it touches. You will definitely need a professional water damage team and their industrial disinfectants to clean up this sort of flooding.

Water damage experts will know how to handle all of these problems in a flooded home and more. Your insurance should cover the costs of hiring them and the clean up job will be much more effective and efficient than you could ever do on your own.
