When your home or business if flooded, time is of the essence. The longer water remains, the more damage it will cause. Hence, the emergency extraction and drying process can prevent a water remediation project from becoming a costly mold remediation job. As a result of quick water extraction, damages to drywall, wood floors, carpet, and cabinets can be minimized. In addition, water damage to furniture and belongings can also be minimized and contained.
Our certified water removal technicians can start the extraction process as soon as they arrive. Accordingly, they will walk the property with you, locate the source, walk you through a water emergency extraction estimate, and start working as soon as your approval is given. The earlier water cleanup starts, the lower the cost for the water mitigation. If you have insurance, the extraction process can be started before speaking to them. Further, the insurance company would not suggest you wait on water removal because damage and cost will increase during an emergency flooding situation when not caught quickly.
The dehumidification process can begin after our certified extraction professional has finished extraction of carpets and any other standing water. When a property floods, fans may help with the drying process. However, this is often not enough to dry structures before the areas begin to deteriorate. Simultaneously, mold can begin to grow within 24-48 hours. To prevent this from happening, it is important to dry the area as quickly as possible. Commercial dehumidifiers will pull the water from the air and jump start the evaporation process.
