How The Professionals Help After Water Damage

Water damage can happen in the blink of an eye- most of have seen it, unfortunately. Whether it’s caused from a storm or other type of natural disaster or it comes from within the home itself- maybe from a broken appliance or busted pipe- it’s all devastating and potentially dangerous. Here at The Steam Team, we handle water damage regularly, so we’re here to give you a few tips!


Removing Water

Most importantly, never try to remove water damage yourself- you always want to call an expert on water removal. They will safely (and efficiently) remove any excess water from your home and ensure that there aren’t any health hazards or mold growth around the home.


Using the Right Equipment

Depending on the extent of the damage, you may need to call in the professionals just to be able to use their equipment. An experienced, professional restoration team will have equipment to suction the excess water out of your home.


Knowledge

Apart from having the right equipment, a professional team of technicians will have the knowledge and experience in how to restore your home from flood damage. They’ll move the furniture to the right areas, avoiding already-damaged areas to keep the process moving smoothly. They’ll ventilate the home to help dry out the home faster- these little tips and tricks that professionals have up their sleeves can make the entire process go drastically smoother.


If there’s anything to remember when it comes to dealing with water damage, it’s this: act immediately. The longer you wait, the more bacteria is likely to grow and you face a big chance for mold. Call us as soon as you can, we know how time sensitive these situations can be and our staff is properly trained to deal with any water damage.

Does your carpet have protectant? Do you know whether or not you need it? When we spill liquids and substances onto our carpet, the fibers absorb the mess, causing the carpet to stain or develop an odor. Or multiple odors- uh oh! But carpet protectant can help with this, and we’ll tell you how! We can protect your marble and stone floors too. 

 

If your carpet doesn’t have protectant, perhaps it’s time to make an investment! Let’s discuss how carpet protector works, and whether or not you should install it in your home.

 

How Does it Work?

 

Ultimately, carpet protector helps prevent wear and tear on your flooring! It also repels dirt and helps to prevent stains and odors from forming; isn’t that a relief? It basically does everything we want it to! And on the plus side, if your carpet is near a window and is fading from the sunlight, carpet protector provides ultraviolet protection to reduce discoloration. So there are many advantages to making this investment; you just have to decide whether it’s right for you.

 

Do I need Carpet Protectant?
