Avoid Flooding & Water Damage Woes by Leaving It to the Pros
There is a REASON we’re called Water Extraction Experts.
Unless there were some dire circumstances involved, you wouldn’t set a broken bone by yourself rather than going to the doctor. Similarly, say you bought yourself a new luxury car and it started acting up, you’d probably take it straight to a certified service center rather than tinkering under the hood yourself.
While we may trust and utilize professionals in many areas of our lives, this isn’t always the case when it comes to our homes. Even though our homes are often our largest material investment, once the house is in their possession many people rely on their own DIY skills to make updates or manage repairs rather than utilizing professionals with valuable expertise and experience.
While you may not need a professional to come in to change the fixtures in your bathrooms or kitchen, here are a few reasons why you should trust Water Extraction Experts in the event that you experience a flood in your home due to weather or plumbing issues.
Not all water is alike, and sometimes the water you are attempting to clean up could be toxic. Water is categorized as clean water, greywater, and black water. Clean water is the treated water coming through the pipes and into your home’s sinks, shower, laundry, etc. and is safe to come in contact with if one of the supply lines breaks or leaks. Gray water is the wastewater leaving your home and can be filled with dirt, food, grease, and household chemicals, while black water is water that has come in contact with organic matter, like food particles, and human and/or pet waste. This water is considered dangerous because it can contain harmful pathogens, like bacteria and viruses, that could be toxic and harmful to your health. Heavily contaminated water can also come from natural floods where heavy rain causes rivers and streams to overflow and river water can mix with sewer water, creating black water.
While black water is especially dangerous, gray water also has the potential to become so as gray water can become black water in as little as 48 hours. All this to say, if a leak is coming from anything other than a supply line, you want to stay away from it and call a water restoration specialist right away.
Even clean water has the potential to become dangerous after a flood or leak, as mold can begin to develop in the affected space in as little as 24 hours. The team at Water Extraction Experts has the expertise to handle unsafe water and mold growth and ensure no hazardous pathogens remain behind.
The Right Equipment.
At-home equipment for flooding and leaks most likely looks like a pile of towels, a bucket, a fan, and perhaps some vinegar or bleach for sanitizing. While this is a good place to start immediately after a supply line leak, water restoration companies have the proper equipment to help you remedy the aftermath of a flood or leak whether from a supply line leak or “black” flood water. Water Extraction Experts not only uses water vacuums that can pump standing water out of your home, but we also have the proper equipment and tools to dry and sanitize wood flooring, carpet, walls, and furniture and we utilize thermal imaging to see any space moisture (and mold) might be trapped or hiding that is often invisible to the naked eye.
Hiring a professional team means you will not only be able to quickly get rid of any standing water, but they will also make sure any hazards to health are quickly cleaned and that there are no more potential water-related problems that can arise as a result of the leak or flood.
While you may feel that no one else cares about your home as much as you, it’s very likely that any restoration you attempt yourself will not be as thorough as a water restoration professional. Our team has more than 100 years of combined experience and we deal with water-damage issues every single day, meaning we know exactly what to look for and how best to treat the problem. As a local, family-owned business, we pride ourselves on offering our customers quality care and helping people to protect and restore their homes.
While you may need to wait days or weeks to receive the help of other professionals whether they be a mechanic or doctor, Water Extraction Experts offer around-the-clock, emergency services at any time of day or night, 24/7. We provide free inspections of your home and property to evaluate the extent of damage to your property. After inspection, Water Extraction Experts industry certified technicians will provide you with a plan to get your home and property back to normal, usually starting work immediately to minimize damage and health risks.
