Process of Extracting Floodwater
Removing floodwater uses the same process as extracting water from a burst pipe. However, what is important to note is that this water coming from the pipe is much cleaner than water that came from an overflowing river or from a lot of rain. At times, this water is mixed with garbage from the street and may even be mixed with a little sewage. This is why it is critical to let experts like us remove floodwaters from your home. We will come with professional water extraction equipment that will clear your property of this dirty and unsanitary floodwater.
Drying and Dehumidifying Your Home
The dirt and bacteria that was in the water will also seep into your private property, like your carpets. Removing floodwater is not the end of the job, as afterward, we will proceed to the comprehensive drying and dehumidification of the home and its contents. Unlike with simple water damage where most of your things may still be good after complete drying, we will check which parts of your home will need to be removed and replaced due to hygienic reasons.
Disinfecting is a critical part in places that might have been exposed to bacteria and fungi. This step will kill all bacteria and prevent future contamination due to unhygienic homes. We are experts in making sure that no bacteria or will grow in an unsanitary home, reducing the risk of you or your family members contracting any illnesses.
Another important step in restoring flood-damaged homes is to remove any smells that may come out due to unsanitary floodwater. This is why we also offer disinfecting and odor control to those who are worried about pungent smells after flooding at home. Once you finally move back in, it will be almost exactly the same as before, no water, no damage, and also no unpleasant smells.
Flood Damage Restoration
Water damage caused by flooding is much more dangerous and complicated to address. Beyond compromising your home’s stability, gray water (water that may contain chemical, physical, or biological elements) can be hazardous due to the microbes and contaminants that grow in stagnant water. Therefore, you are at risk of contracting illnesses like skin infection, salmonella, hepatitis A, Weil’s disease and eye, blood or kidney problems. Because of this risk, flood damage restoration is seriously needed. We will work on removing any remaining floodwater and start with cleaning, disinfecting and restoring as soon as possible.
How Flood Damages Your Property
Time is of the essence in flood damage. The longer floodwater stays in your property, the longer the list of issues with your house. Beyond wreaking havoc to your personal property, it can seriously damage your home all the way to the foundations. Wood will rot, metal will rust, other foundation materials like drywall will disintegrate. Without a timely response, your home might not anymore be fit to live in.
Even if you think the damage is not as bad when floodwaters quickly recede, water might still be trapped in areas invisible to your eye. Worse, parts of your home like the basement might get exposed to water longer than is deemed safe.
