It Is Critical to Be Proactive When You Have Water Damage
When you have water damage at your home, there are key steps you need to take right away. Doing so helps to protect your property as well as your family’s health. Water or any type of moisture can create the risk of mold within a short time. In many cases, it takes just 12 hours of exposure – or less – for mold to begin to grow. That worsens health and can lead to structural damage. That’s why it’s important to contact the specialists at SERVPRO of the Spokane Valley.
What Needs to Happen
As soon as possible, it is critical to remove all standing water from a home or space. This may be done by mopping it up or, when there is a lot of it, it is important to extract it using pumps. Speed is important when drying out the space as fully as possible. The team at SERVPRO of the Spokane Valley has specialized training and equipment that can quickly remove water and dry out your home to prevent further damage.
Unfortunately, it’s possible that a lot of materials that cannot be cleaned well need to be removed and thrown out. This includes damaged drywall, carpeting, paper, and other items you cannot clean. It may include some furniture.
Once all of the wet materials are gone, your team will need to determine if mold remediation is necessary. This depends on the conditions and the length of time it took to try out the property. You may also need to consider restoration work to rebuild and restore the home to the way it was prior to the incident.
