Professional Tips for Removing Water from Long Beach Residences
A Guide to Performing Water Removal in Your Long Beach Residence
Water in unwanted places can ruin your pricey possessions and building materials in your house. If you remove the water quickly, you can minimize the damage and salvage your belongings. Depending on how long the water has settled in the home, you might save the furniture and carpets. However, if electronics have come into contact with water, they may malfunction.
Performing water removal in your Long Beach residence immediately after a water loss incident can also prevent mold growth. Mold not only can cause health problems but also ruin the floors, draperies, walls, and carpets. To prevent further destruction to your home and possessions, you should unplug electronics and remove them from the affected areas. Also, remove other portable items like furniture to increase the chances of saving them.
You should also take steps to extract the water such as using buckets, mops, and old towels to soak it up and then pour it down the drain. You can also use a wet/dry vacuum to extract the water and dry out the affected areas using fans and a dehumidifier, which you can rent. After drying and dehumidifying your property, you should sanitize and disinfect different areas, including drywall, insulation, and wood beams.
It is also advisable to call SERVPRO franchise professionals to ensure effective water removal and drying of your property. We have sophisticated equipment like extractors with a heater, pump, and vacuum system. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) remove as much water as possible to expedite the drying process. We then use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the affected areas thoroughly.
Our SERVPRO crew also monitors and documents the drying process to ensure that the water cleanup job is effective. We use moisture meters to detect if there is moisture underneath wood flooring and within wall cavities. Penetrating moisture meters can test individual layers while non-penetrating meters have sensors which produce readings when we place them on the surface of materials. If we detect any moisture, we can use an all-inclusive plan to get rid of it completely, quickly, and safely. As we dry your property, we can also look for pre-existing damages like mold growth and delamination. Our technicians can notify your insurance adjuster if we find damage, and if the adjuster approves, we can remove the damaged items like a carpet.
