A flooded interior can spell trouble for your home or business, especially its contents. Whether it is caused by a severe storm, appliance failure or plumbing malfunction, flooding can promote mold growth, rot out wood, destroy textiles and corrode metals. When this happens, don’t delay! Get in touch with a local building restoration company that can help you recover from water damage.
Upon calling the pros, you can expect them to follow a thorough process to restore your home or get your business back up and operating again to the way it was before the flooding occurred. Here’s a list of the usual steps they take:
The specialists will arrive at your home or business to evaluate the situation. They’ll identify the source of the flood and provide recommendations on how to get everything back to normal.
In this part of the process, the restoration pros will track down all of the unwanted water in all affected areas of your property’s interior using probes and moisture sensors. This way, they can perform the next steps as thoroughly as possible. They’ll shut down the main water supply of your home or business, especially if the cause of the flooding is a plumbing problem.
The water damage restoration pros will use powerful pumps to draw out most of the water that’s flooding your home or business. They’ll make sure to pay attention to tiny cracks, crevices and crawl spaces. Once done, they’ll use dehumidifiers to remove water vapor from the surrounding indoor air.
After most of the water is removed from inside your home or business, the pros will make sure that no remaining water gets to unaffected areas. They’ll use plastic barriers and sheets to cut off water flow and prepare for pump extraction.
Repair and Reconstruction
In this part of the process, the pros will perform a full assessment of the items that can be salvaged or parts of your home or business that require repair or reconstruction.
Disinfection and Post-Flood Cleanup
Floodwater is filled with germs that pose various health risks. The restoration company will use disinfectants to get rid of microbes that could linger in your interior. They’ll also deodorize everything before you move back to your home or business. Once finished, they’ll take out the unsalvageable contents for safe disposal.
