One of the worst disasters that can happen to a home is flooding. And unfortunately, it’s a common occurence here in Texas. Cleaning up after flood damage can be extremely challenging, especially if the flooding was bad enough that the structure of the building itself is damaged. Luckily, The Steam Team can help clean and restore your home after flooding. Here’s some important information to keep in mind.
The Steam Team’s process for water extraction uses high powered machines to get the damaging water out of your home before it becomes more of a problem. But it’s important to keep in mind that this process takes time. Only a few feet of water can be moved a day, or the rapid change in pressure could cause the walls of the building to collapse. After all water is finally removed, the floors will need a thorough cleaning. And depending on the kind of floor and the extent of the damage, the floors may need to be removed.
Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands
The Steam Team restoration professionals will do everything they can to remove water, clean and restore your home using high powered equipment. But by the time they leave, some aspects of the home may require you to step in. Mud and other contaminants may still be left behind on certain surfaces, and will need to be cleaned off and those surfaces sanitized. Dishes and countertops may also need to be thoroughly sanitized.
One of the most harmful things that can occur as a result of water damage is mold growth. If tracking down and safely eliminating mold sounds like it may be too difficult of a job to handle alone, The Steam Team offers a professional mold remediation service.
