Professional Water Damage Removal Makes Sense Sometimes

Aug 5, 2008
When water collects in a home there is inevitably serious damage. Water can build up in a home from flooding due to natural causes such as torrential rains, broke pipes, or loose connectors on an appliance such as a washing machine. Water can collect in the basement or the house itself. The water can vary in depth from an inch or less to many feet deep.

The cleanup of the damage caused by this water can be extensive. If the water is allowed to sit for any length of time it will cause mold growth. Carpets will be ruined and hard wood floors might also be damaged so badly that they will have to be replaced. Treasured belongings like photographs or home movies can be ruined if left in water for too long. Since time is of the essence when dealing with water which has collected in your home it is a great advantage to be able to hire a professional water removal and restoration company to take care of the water damage in your home.

A professional water removal and restoration company will be able to deal with all the issues surrounding water damage. They will have truck mounted and portable extraction devices to remove the water quickly and efficiently. They will also have submersible sump pumps that help remove high levels of water quickly. As long as the company is hired quickly and can come to the water damaged home right away this is the most efficient way to clean up a problem.

After the water is removed the wet basement or house has to be dried out as fast as possible. A professional company has different moisture detectors which can accurately gauge how much moisture is left in the house. The water removal and restoration company has the proper equipment necessary to dry out your home quickly and completely. They have high tech drying equipment such as industrial strength dehumidifiers and heavy duty air movers or fans to dry carpets, walls, and furniture as fast as possible. This equipment evaporates moistures as well as controlling temperature and humidity in the affected areas. This prevents the unpleasant side effect of mold growth. It also helps stop the swelling of walls, flooring, and furniture so they are less likely to be ruined.

A professional water removal and restoration company will have all the products needed to deodorize, sanitize, and kill any mold growth that may have started to occur. This is a lot easier than trying to figure out which products will take care of the dangers of mold growth on your own. Any books, papers, and photographs that have been water damaged can be sent to the companies off site facilities to be dried and restored. Everything can be frozen until there is time and manpower to do the restoration. The professional will know how to handle and pack all these paper based things to prevent further damage. Hiring a professional cleaning company is a one stop shop to take care of all the damage caused by water collecting in your home.
