Water Extraction Is Important!
Water extraction is an extremely important part of the cleanup process. The longer you wait to extract the water, the more damage it is going to cause. Not to mention, you only have a 48-72 hour window before the mold growth can begin. This is a very short period of time when water damage is involved. Depending on the amount of water, extraction can take quite a while. Here are a few things that can speed up the process.
There are a few different ways to speed it up. First being the light wand. This portable device extracts all the water from carpeting and transfers it to a tank. Keep in mind you do not have to get a portable version, it can also be truck-mounted. Another idea is the squeegee wand. This device, generally for hardwood flooring, works just like a squeegee would. It pushes all of the water away. Drying mats/panels are another great idea. These are used when water gets deep into the floor. The mats/panels are fastened to the floor and they proceed to absorb all the water from below. If none of these work for you, give the professionals a shot! Water extraction professionals will know exactly where it came from, how to get rid of it, and if mold growth has already started, they can help you with that too!
After water has been extracted, you should perform a good cleaning! You could have professionals come in for this as well. Mold spores may be present and after a good professional cleaning, you can almost guarantee there will be no issues.
