How Water Damage Is Handled

Water damage isn’t always the easiest project to take on. It can be a bit tedious. Because of this factor, water damage professionals are frequently called in to come and complete the project. The water damage restoration processes may vary depending on the situation, but this is what the professionals are for. Experienced water damage restoration professionals know how to handle any restoration project thrown their way. Just so you can get a quick understanding of what they do, here’s the general idea.

After a professional is called in, they will inspect the damage to see what they’re working with. To stop the water flow, they first have to find the source. Then comes water extraction. Water extraction should be done as soon as possible. The longer the water sits, the worse the damage will be. Luckily, professionals have industrial machines to help speed up the process. Afterwards, they will figure out where they believe the most damaged areas are. Infrared makes this part of the process a lot easier to accomplish. When the infrared portion is complete, they move on to more inspections. Where there is water damage, mold may be close behind. After 48 hours of standing water, mold growth may begin to occur. Professionals see it all the time, so it’s smart to inspect just in case. They will test the air in the home for any signs of mold. If they find mold growth has begun, they will use air scrubbers, cleaners, and dehumidifiers to remove the mold. Dehumidifiers will ensure a normal humidity level, while the cleaners will clean the air of spores and such. If there are no signs of mold growth, professionals will come back in two weeks to see if anything has changed.

Even if you’ve had water damage or mold growth in the past, no situation is exactly the same. Each will require different tools and steps. Leaky faucets don’t need nearly as much attention as a flooded basement would.
