What happens during water damage cleanup
The first thing that happens when restoration service providers arrive is that all the water is pumped out of the area. If pooled water has gathered, a sump pump may need to be brought in to do the job. Once any standing water has been removed, the area will need to be thoroughly dried out. Dehumidifiers or fans can be brought in to dry out an area.
If water has had plenty of time to soak into carpets, furniture pieces, walls, and other home components, it might be necessary to deodorize and sanitize the area. This will prevent the growth of fungi and bacteria that could cause cosmetic and sanitation problems.
Providers of water damage restoration services will carefully inspect the area and make sure that it is safe for habitation before they leave and allow household members to come back into living quarters. Depending on the extent of the damage, it could take days or even weeks before a home is habitable again. In cases of severe flooding or situations where toxic mold growth has set in, it's important to evacuate the home for a time to prevent injury from structural damage in a home or potential exposure to toxins in the air.
