The Timeline of Water Damage

In order to stop water damage in your home from damaging the air you breathe, the first 48 hours are crucial. After 48 hours, both the visible moist materials and those concealed within the walls will have undergone significant microbial growth.

To stop any serious mold growth, you should start the drying process as soon as possible, ideally during the first 24 to 48 hours. If that is not possible, it is strongly advised that you have your house tested for mold thereafter to see whether or what kind of water damage repair may be required. Do not forget that removing the mold is necessary in order to reduce the risk to your health and stop its spread. Quick and comprehensive water damage cleanup can keep your home’s air quality intact and prevent a lot of expensive hassles down the road.

Here’s A Sneak Peek Into Our Water Damage Extraction, Cleanup, & Mitigation Process

The services of our company are prompt! When you call, one of our restoration specialists will respond and begin by asking you a few questions. We will need your name, address, and the location of the water problem.

Stage 1

After we arrive at your place, we will make enquiries regarding the harm done to your house. We ask questions like:

  • At what time did it occur?
  • How did it take place?

During this conversation, we will begin planning and arrive at your place to start the following phase.

Stage 2

We will inspect the property as soon as we get to your place. If the source of the water is still present, we will find it during this period and stop it. For instance, we would cut off the water if there is a leaky pipe or streaming water.

We can also identify the sort of water by observing it. Clean water from a storm, grey water from sinks and appliances, or black water from sewage – anything could be present. We will also look for asbestos, mildew, and mold on your property.

We would ensure that working on the property is safe, and remove any large furniture and undamaged contents to avoid the danger of contamination or ruin.

Stage 3

At this point, we start to extract or eliminate the water. We have a variety of tools at our disposal that we employ to completely remove any standing water. These include:

  • Suction matting
  • Gas-powered pumps
  • Truck-mounted vacuums and
  • Pump-out systems

We will remove any debris or things that have been water-damaged, when the water is removed. Our servicemen can get a better understanding of the condition of the floors and walls as pooled up water is removed. To understand the drying and dehumidifying process as well as the restoration process better, we can offer a full assessment.

Stage 4

Following the removal of any visible water, we start the drying and dehumidifying process. We put up our cutting-edge drying equipment during this stage. To dry out the area, we employ:

  • Industrial-strength dehumidifiers,
  • Powerful fans,
  • HEPA filters, and
  • Moisture meters.

Since walls and flooring are porous materials that absorb water, moisture meters assist us in locating the moisture that is present in these areas. If required, we will take out the flooring and drywall to aid in the drying process and to ventilate wet areas. We check the moisture levels daily, to make sure that everything is drying. Next, we start the drying process completely.

Stage 5

We begin by packing up our equipment in this phase. This makes it possible to start cleaning and sanitizing. Whatever the cause, water damage can result in a number of issues. When temperatures are higher and there is a lot of moisture present, mold may develop easily and create the ideal breeding site. Cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing will be required for all the furniture, floors, and possessions. We go ahead and get rid of that smell since wet objects often retain a particular odor. We clean everything that is salvageable and discard any damaged materials in addition to cleaning everything else.

Stage 6

Water damage restoration and flood cleanup are the final steps to returning to normal. Our water damage abatement servicemen are also capable of installing new floors as well as tarping the roof to stop further leaks.

We can aid with the pack-out of your house or facility, if you need assistance with your belongings. During this trying period, we can be by your side at every turn.

How Water Damage Can Affect the Air in Your Home?

According to research, mold development on water-damaged materials can affect the quality of the air as well as create structural damage. On a damp surface, mold growth or colonies could begin growing within 24-48 hours, according to FEMA. They procreate by dispersing spores, which are microscopic, airborne “seeds.”

Mold breaks down organic matter, eventually obliterating the stuff they were growing on, and then they spread to obliterate nearby organic matter. Molds can also result in minor to major health issues.
