Water Cleanup Process after a Flood

5/11/2021 (Permalink)

t is crucial to remember that a property owner can take the most critical step whenever they have noticed floodwater in their business or home is to call in the professionals immediately. A water cleanup team will typically dispatch to the home when a call is made, arriving within 30-minutes on average.

When on the scene, the company will immediately start assessing the water in the business or home. They will classify the water according to its health hazard risk and moving quickly to stanch any existing leaks emanating from pipe breaks or supply line breaks. Additionally, the team will carefully examine the area around the original pipe break or supply line break, noting if any water has seeped into unseen or hard-to-reach places. Once the damage to the flooded home or business has been assessed, the team will begin the water removal process. The company will remove the water by using heavy-duty extracting equipment. Removing the water should take a few minutes, as the equipment used can extract thousands of gallons of water per hour.
