How Restoration Professionals Deal with Water Extraction
Common sources of damage from water in the home are burst pipes in the plumbing system, leaking hot water tanks, leaking faucets, and flooding. When damage occurs, our first instinct is to try and salvage what we can from our furniture. In the process, we forget that there are hazards involved when accessing waterlogged rooms in a flooded home. While dealing with damage from water on your own may seem like a wise way to save some money, the long-term results of poor restoration will cost you more. Here is the process we recommend for professional water extraction in the home.
Step One: Contact LimeGreen Water Damage & Restoration
We understand that the first reaction upon realizing your home is damaged from water is shock. However, we recommend fighting the urge to control the situation on your own and instead contact us. When you call, our professionals will ask several questions to estimate the damage level. These questions will also help us respond to you faster. The initial contact is the most crucial part of the entire restoration process.
Step Two: Inspect the Damage
We make sure to respond to all calls within fifteen minutes or less, depending on the circumstances. When we get to the scene, we assess the situation and determine the type of damage that has occurred. The type of damage is what determines the restoration process. The method is different for clear, gray, or black water.
Step Three: The Extraction
We use our powerful pumps and suction tools to remove the stagnate water from inside your home.
Tools used during the extraction process include:
- Suction pumps
- Vacuum cleaners
Before the extraction, we make sure all electric lines have been disconnected and we check to see if there is leaking gas or any other hazards. If the water is Category 2 or Category 3, we will treat the affected areas after the extraction to protect your family from any possible contamination. We focus on removing the water as soon as possible to prevent further damage and mold growth.
The effectiveness of water extraction depends on two things:
- Ability to pump out the excess floodwater
- Removal of any remaining moisture
Our extraction tools can force water onto the surface from soggy areas and then suck the water up. The extractors will not only remove water from flooded rooms, but also from pieces of upholstery such as carpets, curtains, seats, and other furniture.
