The Process of Effective Water Damage Restoration
1. Water Removal
This usually involves water extraction to remove the standing water, and the
removal of wet materials that absorb water, such as carpet padding, soaked
insulation, and damaged sheetrock. A professional water damage contractor will
have the proper equipment and the manpower to take care of flood water removal.
Also, if you have “dirty” water from sewage backups or line breaks, sewage
removal must be done to remove the danger of harmful pathogens.
2. Structual Drying
Fast drying through the use of dehumidifiers and air movers is vital for
halting the effects of water and moisture laden air during water damage
restoration. Generating super dry air through the use of dehumidifiers and
directing that air with powerful air movers pulls the moisture out of structural
materials, hastening their drying. The dehumidifiers also prevent secondary
damage to areas that weren’t originally affected by the water. High moisture
levels in the air can cause peeling paint, warped building materials, and the
growth of mold even in non-flooded areas. Drying wet structural materials and
removing excessive moisture from the air is very important for limiting the
damage during water damage clean up after broken pipe water damage, frozen pipe
water damage, leaky pipes, toilet or sink overflow, or flood damage caused by a
refrigerator, washing machine, water heater or dishwasher.
3.Water Damage Repair
Once the structure has been tested by a water damage specialist to ensure
that it is completely dry, the materials damaged by the water damage can be
repaired to get things back to normal. Typically, a water damage remediation
company will have removed baseboards and drilled holes at the bottom of the
walls to aid in the drying of the wall cavities. Wet carpet and padding will
have been removed. Damaged sheetrock in the ceiling that may have sagged and
broken from retaining water will have to be repaired. And any items permanently
damaged from water will have to be replaced.
Basement Water Damage
Water in the basement is exceptionally common, since most basements will sustain broken pipes, improper grading and window installation, failed sump pumps, seepage, or leaking foundation walls. It’s vital to contact a company that can take care of and is experienced in flooded basements and crawl spaces.
A water damaged basement can be a very serious matter. Any place where water has been at for more than 48 hours will probably have mold growth, and wet drywall and carpets will often have to be replaced. So it’s imperative to have a professional who understands how to perform complete basement water removal and structural drying come and take care of the flooded basement as soon as possible so that both the time and costs involved are lessened.
We hope that basement water damage never strikes your home or building, but once water gets inside, it becomes our job to extract that water. We do physically pull that damaging water out of your structure, quickly, to minimize the degree of basement flooding.
Every basement water removal situation is different and we adapt our water extraction approach for your particular situation. In general there are six main steps in water extraction.
