The Process of Effective Restoration
1. Water Removal
This usually involves water extraction to remove the standing water, and the removal of wet materials that absorb water, such as carpet padding, soaked insulation, and damaged sheetrock. A professional contractor will have the proper equipment and the manpower to take care of flood water removal. Also, if you have “dirty” water from sewage backups or line breaks, sewage removal must be done to remove the danger of harmful pathogens.
2. Structural Drying
Fast drying through the use of dehumidifiers and air movers is vital for halting the effects of water and moisture laden air during water damage restoration Orange County. Generating super dry air through the use of dehumidifiers and directing that air with powerful air movers pulls the moisture out of structural materials, hastening their drying. The dehumidifiers also prevent secondary damage to areas that weren’t originally affected by the water. High moisture levels in the air can cause peeling paint, warped building materials, and the growth of mold even in non-flooded areas. Drying wet structural materials and removing excessive moisture from the air is very important for limiting the damage during flood clean up after broken pipe water damage, frozen pipe water damage, leaky pipes, toilet or sink overflow, or flood damage caused by a refrigerator, washing machine, water heater or dishwasher.
3. Repair and reconstruction
Once the structure has been tested by a Orange County water damage specialist to ensure that it is completely dry, the materials damaged by the flood can be repaired to get things back to normal. Typically, a Orange County CA water damage remediation company will have removed baseboards and drilled holes at the bottom of the walls to aid in the drying of the wall cavities. Wet carpet and padding will have been removed. Damaged sheetrock in the ceiling that may have sagged and broken from retaining water will have to be repaired. And any items permanently damaged from water will have to be replaced.
What to do when you find water damage
- If the water source is evident and safely accessible, shut off the water main or close window or door from which water is getting into the property.
- Remove all valuables that can be damaged.
- Remove furniture from affected area.
- Move as much off the wet carpet or floor as possible, especially objects with metal or wooden legs or supports. These items will stain the carpet or hardwood floors when wet.
