Safely Cleaning Up The Mess

Water damage occurs at times when we least expect it. That’s why it always helps to be as best prepared for it as possible. Water damage can be the result of a leaky pipe or broken washing machine hose. Although you can rent water removal equipment, a professional restoration company will save you time and money in the process. Nonetheless, you can still drain out some of the water from your home. You will need a special wet vacuum, dehumidifiers, and carpet blow dryers, which you can rent out inside of purchasing. Once you have all the water removal equipment, you are then ready to begin the water removal process on your own. Always make sure you have the proper safety equipment, which includes gloves, protective gear and goggles.

What To Do First?

Before you begin getting to work, make sure you seal off all areas of your home for safety measures. In addition to the actual water removal equipment, you will need some high-tech drying equipment. Drying equipment helps prevent property water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls and furniture. High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads and furniture, which evaporates moisture. You will also need to purchase a few sanitizing agents, which prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. You will definitely want to make sure your safety goggle are on for this, since your eyes are very sensitive to mold and bacteria. You can use a regular sponge and soap to clean up the mold at this point.
Professional water damage restoration companies will have the proper industrial equipment and experience to safely clean up the watery mess. You should never hesitate to give them a call either. It only takes a period of 24 hours for mold to grow, and spread throughout your basement and bathroom. You should always make sure that small children are far away from the areas you are cleaning and disinfecting. You can clean a good portion of the mess by yourself, but it’s always advisable to let the pro’s handle the rest.
