Emergency Water Damage Restoration refers to the immediate process of rapidly restoring a damaged property which has been subject to severe water flooding. This may be due to a leak, seepage, or some other break in the plumbing system. Regardless of the cause of the water flooding, the process for emergency restoration is much the same. First the building must be deemed safe and then any inside plumbing must be shut off, and then the flood waters must be allowed to recede. In addition to drying out the building, this will prevent any further water entry which will prevent additional damage to occur.
If the building is not dry, the next step is to seek the services of an emergency water damage restoration company. The company you hire should have specialized equipment on hand to properly dry and sanitize the affected building. This would include dehumidifiers to get rid of excess moisture, mold killer, heavy duty fans, heaters, and dehumidifiers. These items are all used for the same purpose, which is to kill, dry out, and sanitize the building in preparation for the cleanup and repair efforts that will follow.
After the immediate emergency water damage has been taken care of by the Flood Relief Inc, it will be up to the commercial water restoration company to begin the cleanup process. Depending on the nature of the flood may require more than one service from the emergency response team. One of the services offered by the emergency response team is to assist with removing mold spores from carpets and any possible areas of wood or drywall. They may also be required to inspect and test the electrical system to make sure it is not damaged or contaminated.
