Mid Summer Water Damage
With summer in full swing, the last thing we want to worry about is water damage. Believe it or not, there are plenty of ways summer time wonders can betray you. For instance, bursting pools and leaky air conditioning units. Leaky air conditioners may not be as bad as a pool bursting, but no matter what the case it needs to be taken care of. For something as big as the pool, you may need to call in a restoration company. As for the air conditioner, you may be able to take on the project yourself.
Keep in mind water restoration isn’t the most fun project. It takes time and effort to complete. You want to start with the water extraction process first. Water extraction means getting rid of all the water in your home. It’s important that this gets accomplished as soon as possible. Sitting water is bad water. Clean up can be done with mops, towels, or wet vacs. It all depends on the size. Carpet in the home should be removed if the water has been sitting for more than 48 hours as mold growth may have started. Porous materials may also need to be thrown away if affected by mold growth.
After the water has been removed you need to get air circulating through out the home. Even though it looks like all the water has been extracted, you’ve still got some to worry about. Water can easily seep into the floors. There are a few things you can do to remove this excess water. Fans and blowers are a great start. This circulates are all around the home. Opening doors, windows, and even cupboards can be a great help as well. Dehumidifiers will help in ensuring mold growth doesn’t begin. Mold growth creates another big problem you don’t want to deal with.
Remember, if you’re afraid to take on the project yourself, call in the professionals from your local water restoration company. Certified professionals are always going to be the safest route to take. With all the years of experience in the restoration business, they don’t miss a thing!
