Time Works Against Water Damage Restoration San Diego Efforts!

Never have the words “time is of the essence” been more applicable then when carpeting has been saturated by flooding, whether the cause is a broken pipe or sewage backup. It is important to start water damage repair within 3 days of the initial loss. Bacterial off-gassing fibers and contaminated liquids are noticeable within hours and can cause permanent damage within days. Thoroughly understanding the condition which causes such problems, whether it be fungus, mold, mildew or PH is essential to your determining the best corrective procedures to use.

Procedures On Location

The first step of water damage restoration is to remove all furniture from the damaged area. This must be done to pull up the carpet. Do it first to prevent further water damage, such as the possibility of rust stains on carpeting or furniture damaging the subflooring. Removal of furniture also allows for efficient water extraction in the entire carpeted area. Inspect furniture to assess damage. Wood base furniture may swell and crack from exposure to water. Metal base items will rust. Disinfect contaminated area with bacterial/mildew control sprays. Extract as much water as possible from the carpet. This will reduce the weight of the carpet for roll up removal or forced air drying. Make a final inspection with a moisture detector to identify any other wet area, rooms, closets, etc., as these are usually not apparent from a surface inspection. All savable carpeting must be thoroughly dried with air movers to prevent permanent damage from mold and mildew growth.

Limited Water Damaged Area

Laying of new padding and re-installation & cleaning of carpeting can usually be performed within three days of the flood restoration work, depending on the extent of the flood and the moisture levels involved.

Extensive Flooding of Homes

If the water damage is more extensive, such as complete rooms or the entire level of the home, the method of water damage repair is more complex: Remove padding and discard so as not to have debris lying around. Extract remaining water and clean up the area in which you are working. Reset the furniture to be able to resume use of the room. Use furniture protectors were necessary. Place air movers and dehumidifiers throughout water-damaged areas to dry the moisture in flooring, walls, and subfloors. Always remember that things will turn out just fine.
