Camilla Water Damage Clean Up — Why is Fast Response So Important?

7/21/2015 (Permalink)

Water damage is not to be treated lightly.

The Key to Successfully Restore Water Damaged Areas

Camilla water damage is not to be treated lightly. Experts recommend that professional treatment should begin within the first 48 hours after the damage has been discovered. This is critical to minimize the growth of toxic molds and bacteria that can damage the integrity of the structure and also put at risk the health of its’ occupants. Studies have found that molds and bacteria will start to grow on untreated wet drywall in less than 48 hours. In addition to inhibiting toxic microbial growth, the treatment also limits permanent damage to the structure itself.

It is essential to secure a contractor who specializes in Camilla water damage, such as SERVPRO, to begin the cleanup process as early as possible. Allowing the trained service professionals to assess the extent of the damage and begin treatment early will reduce the amount of permanent damage sustained to the structure and personal effects. Remediation begins by removing the water as soon as possible. Extraction pumps will be used to remove visible water. The removal of wet materials, such as carpets, drywall and insulation, will also be part of the necessary actions performed by the trained professionals. Drying out the affected area is critical to minimize the growth of bacteria and mold. Commercial dryers and high efficiency dehumidifiers will be used to complete the water removal process.

Ensuring that the level of moisture is at an acceptable level, the restoration team will monitor the area with a hygrometer. This is especially important for small closed in spaces, behind cabinetry or in recessed areas of the structure. Beginning the reconstruction before the moisture level has been reduced to normal levels increases the probability that mold and mildew will become an issue in the future.

How successful the complete restoration of the structure greatly depends on how soon the trained professionals, like SERVPRO, are able to start the process. SERVPRO offer 24-hour availability, and they have personnel ready to begin the water removal process immediately. Water damage is disheartening, but letting a trained team of professionals handle the cleanup and restoration of the structure provides peace of mind.
