You already know that water damage can be caused from a number of things; malfunctioning appliances, busted pipes, and natural disasters - but how can you handle these situations? When faced with a flood, homeowners often feel overwhelmed, and understandably so. The good news is that your local restoration company, The Steam Team, understands the devastating effect of this damage and is only a phone call away!
Assessing The Damage
The first step when it comes to any kind of damage, whether it be from water or a fire, is for a professional to assess the damage. This helps with insurance claims and coverage, but also gives you an idea of how long it will take for them to restore your home and how much it’s going to cost. Additionally, they’ll be able to tell you how safe the environment is (and whether you need to stay somewhere else).
Next, the water needs to be fully extracted from the home. It’s always advised to contact a professional to do this because of the contamination of floodwater. If the flood was caused from a natural disaster, it’s hard to know what is in the water itself. But, on the other hand, if it was from a sewage pipe - you could be dealing with highly contaminated water. Either way, it’s best to leave this part (and every part) to the professionals.
Drying the Moisture
Then comes the drying process. Using the latest technology and equipment, The Steam Team will begin drying out your flooring, belongings, and other furniture around the home. However, the drying process doesn’t stop there. Your technician will continue to monitor the area over time to ensure a smooth process and recovery.
