Steps to Water Damage Cleanup

5/22/2020 (Permalink)

Water Damaged Home When flooding or other water damage occurs it is critical to have professional expertise in the cleanup process.

Flooding, broken pipes, or backed-up sewer lines are common causes of water damage. No matter what the cause, smart property owners rely on professionals to handle the cleanup process. The right team ensures the entire process is done properly.

Assessing the Problem

The first step is to determine the extensiveness of the water damage. During this process, the professionals will do a damage assessment to better understand what is going to need to be done to ensure the property is safe again.

Removing Water and Debris

The next step is to ensure all water is extracted. Then, any damaged debris and material around the property needs to be removed as quickly as possible to prevent the buildup of mold.

Drying Out and Dehumidifying

Drying out the property is a bit more complex than it seems. The goal is to not encourage the movement of any mold spores during the drying process. Dehumidification can help with this process.

Cleaning, Repair, and Restoration

From here, the water damage cleanup continues with proper cleaning of existing surfaces and making any necessary repairs, including to flooring, drywall, and ceilings. Then, rebuilding is done if needed to improve the existing space and ensure structural integrity.
