Water Damage Restoration Phoenix: 3 Key Facts

Water damage restoration is a vital procedure in cleaning your home after it's been flooded. Water damage not only is harmful to your property, but it also can bring about possibly harmful mildew and mold. It's simple to clean your home after a small flood that doesn't cause significant damage. For a major flood, it's most beneficial to hire a professional cleaning service to help clean up the aftermath.

How can a water damage restoration service have advantages?

A professional service is better equipped to do a thorough job than you. It's necessary to have specialized equipment and knowledge to clean up and dry out after a major flood. Going to your local hardware store to pick up supplies won't solve the problem. Even if you do, it doesn't make sense to waste money on equipment you'll ideally only use one time.

You possibly will need special floor drying equipment, a dehumidifier, sanitizers, and other items depending on the amount of damage. Health and safety issues are also a concern.

Professional restorers understand how to inspect your home for mildew, mold, and other health threats. They can salvage water damaged possessions you might think are a lost cause, and tell you what can't be saved.

What kinds of services are provided when water damage restoration is performed?

The principal purpose of restoration is to eliminate the remnants of flood water, dry the damp spots, and reduce the damage to the home.

Most people underestimate the health risk of flood water. Clean water can bring about just as many health hazards as dirty water. Mold, viruses and bacteria thrive in the damp areas flooding causes.

If the water happens to be contaminated with human or animal waste, infectious diseases are likely to spread. Beyond that, the longer your home is damp, the more likely damage will be done.

 

Isn't it possible to use a fan and towels to eliminate water and dry the area?

That is a possible solution if the flood is small and only affects one room. It's a fact that professional help isn't always necessary to assist you in cleaning up the aftermath of a flood. However, it requires serious work to clean up after a major flood.

The flood water that is left behind is typically removed using a wet dry vac and a pump. Drying is performed by opening windows in conjunction with a dehumidifier. Your floors might dry too quickly if you utilize a home's heating system, and this can cause structural damage. Fans might also be harmful because they can spread mold spores if there is mold in the area. The best method of removing water can be determined by a professional cleaner.
