What is the Best Way to Get Muddy Water Out of My Long Beach Kitchen?
SERVPRO technicians can get the floodwater and mud out of your Long Beach home quickly
While homeowners try to plan against natural disasters such as flash floods or storm damage, there is no way to be 100% insulated from it happening. Microbursts and heavy thunderstorms occur, and when floodwater invades a Long Beach home, it needs addressing as fast as possible to limit the loss. This is one type of home disaster you should outsource to a restoration services company for the best outcome, including getting the muddy water out of your floors using professional equipment such as portable pumps or for large jobs, truck-mounted units.
Why is Flood Damage So Much More Harmful Than a Pipe Burst?
There is no real comparison between Long Beach properties with plumbing issues and flood damage. Water that erupts from a pipe is drinking water quality, and as long as it gets cleaned up within 24 hours, it poses no real health threat. Floodwater is a different story. The things typically found in this water type include:
• Mud and debris
• Contaminants such as sewage or chemicals
In other words, it is filthy and can be harmful to come into contact with and should not get handled without full-body protective clothing.
Floodwater tends to hit flooring of all types the hardest and carpet in particular fares poorly when it absorbs this type of water, particularly so if sewage or mud is part of the equation. In these cases, the techs extract the moisture from the carpet and cut it into strips for safe handling during disposal. Once the techs complete the extraction, drying, and any needed controlled demo, they work to ready the property for repairs to return the home to its preloss condition.
