What You Need to Know About Safe Water Cleanup

What’s worse than finding out you have flood damage? Not being aware of the dangers that come with it. Water can be scary for several reasons, but it doesn’t need to be dangerous if handled correctly. Safe water cleanup is a necessary process when there has been a flood, fire, or another event that has caused water damage to your home or office. 

Our team is trained to respond when water floods your home or business; we know what procedures are necessary to keep everyone safe while restoring your property.

Listed below are exceptions regarding our safety protocol for handling water cleanup and removal:

1) If water is contaminated with sewage (i.e., blackwater), our technicians will take extra safety precautions. We bring our protective equipment (PPE) when handling blackwater, which means you won’t have to replace your belongings due to our work.   

2) If water sits for longer than twenty-four hours, mold may begin growing in the affected area(s). In this case, all contents will be removed and replaced, and dried correctly. Removing wet material is how we prevent mold growth and keep your home safe from any further damage.

3) For more significant amounts of flood damage or water extraction projects that extend beyond five days, a drying plan may be necessary to minimize future moisture problems. During this process, we place fans and dehumidifiers in affected areas to initiate the drying process.

Listed above are guidelines for a safe water cleanup; if you’re not sure if you need one, please give us a call!
