Unfortunately many of us know people who have suffered water damage recently, whether it’s our friends, family, or maybe even you’ve suffered yourself. It’s devastating to the home, it’s devastating to the people, and it’s devastating financially. Whether it’s caused from a natural disaster (like a hurricane or heavy storm), a broken pipe or leaky appliance, or even a house fire -- the water damage is all the same. It can destroy our furniture, weaken the structure of our home, and risk mold growth around every affected area. As difficult as it is to deal with devastating water damage, we’re here to help you along the way.


Most Importantly: Get Rid of All Water

Water has a way of seeping into everything and if you’re not careful, you could have a mold infestation to deal with in the near future. Calling in the professionals from the very beginning will help to get rid of every drop of water around your home. Until they get there with fans and other equipment, you can help by opening windows and turning on ceiling fans to try and get the air circulating (and drying out the water).


Be Proactive Against Mold

Mold grows quickly and quietly. Once everything has dried out (including walls and carpet padding) it’s important to disinfect the affected area to protect against bacteria. Your walls, counters, floors, and other surfaces will likely need professional treatment to prevent mold growth, odors, and permanent staining.

A professional cleaning and restoration company will have the right equipment to tackle mold and stop it in its tracks. Your best choice when dealing with water damage is going to be to call in the professionals to ensure that you and your family are safe in the future and that your home is properly taken care of.

No matter how prepared we are, we simply can’t predict the wrath of a disastrous house fire. Fire spreads relentlessly, damaging our possessions, and sometimes- our entire homes. Regardless of the degree of damage, house fires are devastating and the aftermath is daunting.


In best-case scenarios our homes get away with minimal fire damage. But even if these cases, most of us are unprepared for cleaning up the smoke, ash, and soot that blankets our belongings! It’s best to begin the cleanup process with the help of a professional cleaning and restoration company- like The Steam Team.


In the meantime, we’ll provide a few handy tips for handling the aftermath of fire damage in your home.


Launder All Washable Items


Anything that can withstand a machine wash should be put into the washer as soon as possible! Afterward, gather the remaining affected items to be dropped off at your local dry cleaner.


Be sure to check on the washer in between the next two steps…


Wash Walls & Surfaces


Left behind ash and soot will perpetuate odors inside your home. Use a rented steam cleaner (or a professional restoration company) to wash interior walls and surfaces. This method is perfectly safe for everyone involved: the environment, your children, and pets. A steam cleaner will use nothing but high water pressure and intense heat to remove soot and ash without leaving behind any residue.


Steam Clean Upholstery, Drapes, & More


Curtains and drapes can be sprayed down with deodorizing products (just be careful not to use sprays which only mask the odor), or otherwise steam cleaned. Steam cleaning is also safe for upholstered furniture, countertops, flooring, tables and chairs, and so many more items.

Once again- in the event of a fire in your home, don’t wait; call The Steam Team! You’d be surprised by a steam cleaner’s effective and efficient results!
