Flooding can happen on anyone’s property. Even if you don’t live in an area that is prone to hurricanes or other storms, your home can become flooded if a major water line in the area ruptures.
Floodwater is never just water, so having a professional water restoration service come to restore your home to its clean, safe state is essential. Water damage technicians are specially trained to remove water, help buildings dry out, and destroy harmful pathogens.
This video details the steps many of these services go through to ensure they thoroughly clean a water-damaged property. First, they remove and remaining standing water. Next, they strip water and contaminants from any materials in the home that would absorb them. They pull baseboards off of walls to inspect the drywall and wall components behind them, as well. When the floodwater is removed, they thoroughly dry and sanitize the space.
Water restoration teams are equipped with commercial-level tools to remove water and debris efficiently from any building. They work fast and know how to spot the early signs of mold growth and water damage. If your home needs to be restored after a flood, you don’t want to risk mold exposure by refusing help.
