Water Extraction Process
Water damage can range anywhere from a quick clean up to a complete devastation to the home. No matter the case, prior to making any repairs, the water must be removed from the area. Any excess water should be extracted as soon as possible. The faster this step is completed, the easier it is going to be for you in the long run.
Attempting to reestablish your home or business is possible, but it will take some work. Water extraction, the act of removing excess water, is the first and most crucial step in the entire process. The longer water sits, the worse the damage will be.
Small cleanups, such as a spilled cup, can be conveniently cleaned up with paper towels, mops, rag, etc. Larger cleanups, such as toilet/tub overflow, burst pipes, or flooding needs more attention. Extracting the excess water in a quick, efficient manner can be done with a wet vac. After the water has been extracted, you must try to dry out the area as well as possible. Water is still stuck in the flooring of the area. Any porous materials in the area probably have water damage, too.
Air circulation is a great way to air out and dry out the area. Opening all of the doors and windows throughout the home or business is a great start. Opening cupboards and drawers will also help if water has made contact there. Turn on the ceiling fan, blowers, or stand up fans to circulate more air throughout the home or business and speed up this step.
