Flood damage cleanup can be a tiresome task. Fortunately, there are water restoration services that can be hired to do the annoying work of removing accumulated water, disinfecting contaminated surfaces and materials, and restoring the property to pre-loss condition.
The first step that a water restoration service generally takes is to appoint a water damage specialist to asses the situation. The assessment process usually begins with determining the source of water damage by using infrared technology, unless, of course, the cause of flooding is evident, such as a recent hurricane, sewage backup or an apparent pipe burst. Once the source is determined, the specialist can normally figure out if it is clean or contaminated, and also if it poses any health hazards for the homeowners.
Next, a list of materials lost or damaged by flooding is made, and the proper evaluation of their value or repair is conducted. At this point, any non-salvageable contents can be removed from the premises and disposed of as per the state rules. Once the assessment is done, a plan is devised for flood damage cleanup. The next step is water extraction and structural drying. We will bring in all the heavy-duty equipment needed to remove water and speed up drying. The water damage restoration devices generally include wet vacuums, industrial-strength fans, air scrubbers, drying systems for different floor-types, dehumidifiers and a moisture meter.
