Water Extraction & Water Mitigation FAQs
When water damage happens, you must act fast. Any water in your home or business is devastating.
Maybe a pipe busted in your home? Or a sewage leak? Flood water extraction and water mitigation are similar services to deal with water issues. We offer both. Let’s dive in so you can find out more about our process…
What Is Water Extraction?
Water extraction is when we remove all standing water from your property. Most of all, we will draw out moisture that is not healthy.
However, there are some different ways we can remove standing water. These methods may include the use of:
- Industrial vacuums: are strong vacuums made to suck up large amounts of water.
- Submersible pump: goes into the water and can remove dirty water and debris.
- Infrared cameras: used to detect water that you may not see at first glance.
- Moisture detectors: electronic devices that allow us to determine the moisture in the air.
Structural drying is the most crucial part of the water removal process. Damage to the property may occur if you do not dry the structure right. We will remove water from cracks and any other trapped moisture as well.
What Is Water Mitigation?
Once everything is dry, we can move on to the next process. Mitigation is our way of cleaning and drying your property. It is the preventative part where we try to keep flooding from happening again.
Our main goal is to lessen the water damage to the property. Then, once the spread of water has stopped, we can move on to reestablishing the leak-proof integrity of your property.
The process of our removal service may involve:
- Removing all debris
- Removing damaged furniture, drywall, and flooring
- Bracing the property
- Sanitizing anything salvageable
- Drying out the structure
Our professional drying equipment will remove extra water and moisture. We will ensure that your property is habitable for you and your family.
Why Is It Important To Dry Structures as Soon as Possible?
It is crucial to dry all structures as soon as possible to prevent mold growth. To avoid mold, you should clean up any water-damaged area within 24-48 hours.
If you leave mold untreated, it can cause further damage. It can also cause health problems and potentially become toxic to people and pets. Mold may cause you or your family to have severe allergic reactions. The prevention of dangerous mold is why drying structures quickly is so important.
Why Should I Not Try Flood Water Extraction or Structural Drying Myself?
It would be wise never to attempt water removal or drying yourself. Furthermore, it is dangerous because the water is dirty. It can contain chemical or biological toxins and bacteria.
Any water damage is going to be unclean water in some way. Thus, it is best to call the professionals right away. At CMS Restoration, we have the experience and the top equipment to remove moisture from your property efficiently and safely. Contact us today for a free estimate!
