HOW TO CLEAN UP WATER DAMAGE
CONTACT A WATER REMEDIATION EXPERT
Whether you were the victim of a leaky basement, had a pipe burst or are experiencing a flood in your home or commercial property it is important to contact a water remediation expert like Spaces to properly clean and repair the damaged area.
ASSESS THE WATER DAMAGED AREA
After contacting a water remediation company, reach out to your home or business insurance provider to assess the water damage that has occurred. At Spaces we know water damage can be a shock not only to your home or business but your wallet, that’s why we will work with you to cover your insurance deductible.
Once the leak or other source of water damage has been stopped or the flooding has subsided, all water must be removed from the affected area. This calls for more than just sucking up the water with your average wet-dry vac. In order to properly remove the water, our team of experts uses industrial grade water extractors, drying systems, and blowers to remove the standing water.
DRY & DEHUMIDIFY
Drying and dehumidification is the next vital step in the process of water remediation. All water vapor and other moisture must be removed from your home, office, or commercial property to prevent the growth of toxic mold and mildew. Our team of remediation experts will use wood floor and sub-floor drying systems, air movers and industrial grade blowers, and dryers to remove the excess water, moisture, and water vapor from the property.
CLEAN AND SANITIZE THE AFFECTED AREA
It is important to clean and sanitize the affected area after the water and excess moisture has been removed. Any sewage water, toxins, chemicals, or other contaminants left behind must be cleaned and sanitized.
Water damage is grouped into three types:
- White water – usually caused by an overflowing sink or tub. This type of water damage is the easiest to clean and sanitize but can result in mold growth if not cleaned and dried out properly
- Grey water – used water from bathroom sinks, showers, tubs, and washing machines. This may contain toxins, chemicals, sewage, bacteria, and other contaminants
- Black water – water containing waste such as feces, toxins, chemicals, sewage, bacteria, and other contaminants; black water may be hazardous to the health of anyone who comes into contact with it or its residuals
All three forms of water damage should be cleaned using professional cleaning tools and supplies to help eliminate mold and mildew growth, in addition to harmful toxic remnants.
RESTORE THE DAMAGED PROPERTY
The repair and restoration of the impacted property is the final step in the remediation process. Whether white, grey or black, water damage can warp or damage ceilings, floors, and walls. As they are low and absorbent, carpets, carpet pads, and rugs are often most affected by flood water. While hardwood floors can often be dried and restored, carpets usually need to be cleaned, dyed, stretched, or replaced after water damage. As for drywall, it is important to consult an expert. The amount and type of damage may affect the severity of the damage.
