Immediately getting in touch with the experts.
The longer you delay calling in the professionals, the more expensive and tougher it will be to mitigate the problem.
It is also easier for secondary damage and mold to take root with the latter being responsible for sicknesses and other complications that may arise later.
Eliminating the source of water is at the heart of the problem.
Turning off circuit breakers to wet areas only when it is deemed safe.
Moving small items of furniture and other breakables to other places in the home that are unaffected by water.
Using a shop vacuum to remove excess water thus staving off the chance of getting electrocuted.
Water Remove Process
Since accidents happen when we least expect it, our professional technicians get rid of excess water in the following ways i.e.
Standing water is extracted through the use of tools such as water claws or carpet wands.
Each area that has been affected is given special care and attention.
In order to reach the water beneath carpeted areas, it is advisable to use a water claw due to its effectiveness. This is because its water removal process ensures that the padding and carpet are left virtually dry.
To halt the growth of mildew and other harmful micro-organisms, our technicians incorporate the use of anti-microbial treatment. Lastly, air movers that work at high speed are used to create airflow across the walls and carpet that aids in moisture evaporation. In addition, dehumidifiers prevent humidity, promote faster drying, and help maintain indoor air quality.
