Water Damage Restoration

Water damage refers to different possible losses resulting from water penetrating the building in which it may enable entry of an infectious material or biological process by detrimental processes like bacteria growth, rotting of timber, growth of mold, corrosion of metal, swelling of lumber, et al. In case the damage is large and the affected area requires immediate clean up, the first step would be disinfecting the water source. This should be done by using clean water from another source or covering the affected area with waterproof material like sheet metal or plastic. It should be noted that in most cases, the water damage is not related to the electrical wiring in the building. The damage may also be caused due to the failure of the building’s plumbing system.

What You Need to Do to Get it Done Correctly

For the water damage restoration process, it is important to contact a professional help, as ignoring it would only increase the chances of further damage. When your insurance company takes care of the insurance claims for you, they may not provide you with the necessary assistance when it comes to water damage clean up. For example, if the damage is so bad that it may require extensive repairs, the insurance company will not pay for it unless you provide evidence of insurance claim.

Professional water damage restoration experts use special equipment for the job including tanks, pumps, drying machines, pressure washers, carpet cleaners, and cleaners with HEPA filters. For the cleanup process, these professionals use special chemicals like mono-ammonium phosphate (MAP), hydrochloric acid (HCL), and boron nitride. Depending on the severity of the damage, these three substances are used. Cleanup can also include replacement of moldings, repairing moisture detectors, deodorizing the room, drying the area, and removing damp carpets and furniture. Drying is usually done with a fan while vacuuming is done manually. After the drying process is completed, vacuuming is then done with a regular vacuum cleaner.
