Why is Fast Response So Important?
After a water damage incident, it’s important to mitigate the issue as soon as possible. Experts suggest taking immediate steps such as handling removed items with care. The EPA also notes that this is critical for preventing long-term damage and the growth of microbiological contaminants like mold & bacteria.
One study found that wet drywall, if left untreated for 48 hours, already showed evidence of microbial growth.
Don’t wait for a second more before hiring a water damage contractor to help you out with the most crucial step in this process. It’s not guaranteed that it can be taken care of, so the sooner they arrive the greater your chances are at preventing any permanent damages from happening.
If water is ever involved in a construction zone, it might be necessary to remove and discard materials like carpet, insulation & sheetrock.
Once the water has been cleared from the affected areas, you can then turn to dry equipment that includes high-efficiency dehumidifiers and commercial air movers. These work by removing moisture from the structure and air.
The sooner all this is done, the less damage will occur and the less need there will be for water damage repair.
3 Important Steps to Cleaning up your Water Damage
During a flood, you will always be going through 3 phases of water damage:
1. Water Removal
Standing water can usually be extracted and wet materials like carpet pad, damaged sheetrock, or insulation removed.
You will need a professional cleaner with proper equipment, manpower, and space to undertake the task of cleaning up the water in your home. The sooner you get them on board, the quicker you can work on phase 2.
2. Dry out
There are many different mitigation techniques that are important for controlling the effects of water damage like dehumidifiers and air movers. Fast-drying is really critical, as moisture can cause mold to grow, which can lead to illness.
Building materials can take months to dry out after being flooded. But an industrial-grade dehumidifier paired with a powerful air mover can produce super-dry air, drawing moisture out of the walls and floors, slicing the drying time down to just days.
Dehumidifiers also protect areas that were not directly exposed to water such as paint, carpets, furniture, and others. Humid air can cause them to peel or warp and cause mold in the future.
To keep your drywall, wood, and other structural materials from getting wet again during clean-up, it’s important to remove excess water from the air.
3. Water Damage Restoration
Once the water damage has been fixed, you can start repairing the space to bring things back to normal.
If the water damage was significant enough, it is likely that the baseboards along the bottom of your wall will be taken off and holes drilled to help dry up any water left in your walls. Removal of carpet & pad might also be necessary.
Water damage can cause sagging or even collapse of sheetrock ceilings.
Any items that are permanently damaged from water, such as insulation, items in the basement and other ground-level floors that have come into contact with water, and any wood floors that can’t be saved will have to be replaced.
Most water damage contractors who specialize in water removal will also come with the equipment, expertise, and knowledge to fix the damages caused by the water. If you are happy with how they handled the clean-up, talk to them about the repair process.
