Water Invasion in Geauga County!!

6/11/2021 (Permalink)

Water damage is one of the most common forms of damage that occurs in homes and commercial buildings. Excess water in home or water in business can be due to floods or rain as well as internal problems including supply line break or pipe break, leaking fixtures, or even roof leaks. The extent of water damage in a flooded home or business can be difficult to determine as much of the water or moisture can get absorbed into porous materials around the property.

It is often tempting to try and clean yourself when you have water in your home or business, but it is better to call a mitigation company. Mitigation professionals have the skills, understand the problem, and have state-of-the-art equipment to handle the cleanup and drying.

Mitigation professionals have the resources and ability to determine where the water is coming from, also known as the source of loss. After the source of the water damage is found, the water in home or water in business situation can be handled properly. A malfunctioning appliance or fixture can be turned off. A pipe break or supply line break can be blocked or shut off.

Next, the Mitigation professionals begin water extraction using either their industrial portable or truck mounted extraction pumps. Water detection technology enables them to determine saturation levels and identify areas. This enables them to use specialized equipment to dry out the space and dehumidify the area.

After the structure and its contents have dried out, including drywall, insulation, wood beams, the next step is to apply a good disinfectant in the area. Professional-strength disinfectant is used on all areas affected by the water in home, water in business or flood waters including wood and walls and non-upholstered furniture.
