Whenever your home is inundated with water, for whatever reason, there are a lot of things that happen and a lot more that can happen. None of them are particularly good or pleasant. Some of the tasks needed to mediate these issues can be done by you. More of these are water damage repair and/or water damage restoration. This means the damage is so insidious that no amount of regular cleaning will provide a completely safe home again. This level of damage is, actually, not very hard to achieve as the water, often dirty, like from a river or stream or filthy like from a sewer connection that has backed up into your home. The Water Restoration in Levittown, NY we provide will make quick, yet, thorough work of all of this.
Several of the tasks are involved with the removal of standing water and as much of the residual moisture that is left. The water, if left too long, will get absorbed into the wallboard, wood floors, and any wood furniture. This creates a condition that is ripe for molds to begin their growth. Not very much time is needed for this fungus, often very dangerous, to take over the entire house. This, if it is present, must be found and removed as well as the surface being treated against possible future reinfection.
The Water Restoration in Levittown, NY crew begins their work by setting up large air movers to evacuate the bad air from the house. This also gets the air circulating. This is one of the death knells of mold we begin this right away. The standing water is removed through the use of powerful vacuums, hooked up to a container on the truck, outside. Dehumidifiers are set up to continue the process of drying the air and everything else. Things that can not be cleaned are bagged, removed and disposed of in appropriately located disposal sites. The principles of cleaning, the science of sanitation and the careful attention to detail are what it takes to provide this to your home.
