should begin as soon as possible after water damage has occurred. The longer the water remains in a building, the more damage it can do, and the more likelihood mold will develop. Hours can mean the difference is damage versus severe damage to a structure and its contents. The first step of restoration
is eliminating the water source. In the past, proper treatment for restoration involved removing all of the carpet, furniture, drapes and belongings from the area affected by water and let them air try. This not only took an incredible amount of time, items usually developed mold as well as a musty mildew smell. This method is ok for a tiny leak on a rug in the bathroom, but not for an entire room or house that has suffered water damage.
The latest technology in Water Damage Restoration involves extracting the water from the area with special equipment to start the process. Air movers will assist in evaporating the damaging moisture. Dehumidifying the air will prevent any forms of long-term damage to walls, floor and furniture. An ideal temperature will be maintained to assist in the dehumidification and evaporation of the moisture in the building. Drying the structure as quickly as possible provides a long term solution and permits a building to be returned to its original state. Flooded buildings can usually be completely dried within 3-4 days after starting the process.
After a building
has dried out, Water Damage Remediation can begin. This process involves inspecting the building for any structural damage that may have occurred during the flooding. The building will be inspected by a certified inspector for mold within the home. The duct work may need to be cleaned from mold spores moving through the home. The reason for the cleaning is to improve the air quality in the building and eliminate any concerns for mold illnesses to occur. The building will also need to be disinfected and deodorized. Mold has a distinct smell and will absorb into every item in the home.
