What are some of the causes of water damage?
Should You Do Water Damage Cleanup Yourself Or Hire a Professional?
The answer is completely up to you, but to help you make the smart choice for your cleanup you need to know some important information about water cleanup.
Before the water cleanup can be done it is important to determine all the areas that will need to be cleaned. If you have carpet where the water damage was, then the carpet will need to be pulled up to remove the water underneath it. Then if the carpet can be cleaned you can clean it or if it is damaged beyond repair then you will have to remove it.
You will also need to watch for water in the walls which can be very hard to clean up if you don’t know how to do it correctly. The professionals have the knowledge and expertise to cleanup water from anywhere it is found. This is knowledge that you will have to take time to learn before you can do cleanup if you want to ensure that it is done right.
Another thing that will have to be done is to check the ceilings for sagging, dampness and brown stains. If the problem is really bad then the ceiling will have to be replaced. Insulation will also have to be discarded if it is wet so that the joists can dry and then new insulation will need to be installed.
No matter where the water cleanup needs to be done you have to always be conscious of the wires and electrical outlets because water around these areas can easily cause electrocution. For many people this is reason enough for them to hire professionals because not knowing what you are doing can be really dangerous for you.
Professionals know the dangers and are prepared to deal with them without injuring themselves or someone else. Plus, any areas of your home that are wet will have to be sanitized and this can be hard to do if you don’t have the knowledge for it.
If you don’t sanitize the area then you can end up with mold and bacteria which will be unhealthy for anyone living in your home.
Now that you know this important information about water damage cleanup; all that remains is to take the time to decide if you want to attempt the cleanup yourself or if you are going to hire a professional to do it for you. Just remember that this type of cleanup can be dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing and this will help you make up your mind about the smart choice for you.
Water Damage Cleanup - What You Need to Do
While hurricanes and floods are the cause of thousands of water damage claims each year, water damage isn't limited to the wrath of storms. Burst pipes, clogged water lines, toppled water heaters, overflowing toilets, and automatic fire sprinklers also cause their fair share of flooding. Not only must you stop the water from flowing, you must also mop it up. Where to start? Here are a few pointers.
First, it's important to shut off the water in order to minimize the water damage. This could be as simple as reaching behind the toilet and shutting off the valve or as complicated as locating the home's main water shut off valve. Take the time now, before a flood, to locate the main shut off valve and learn how to shut off the water. This valve is usually located outside the home in a utility box. Contact your water utility if you are not able to locate it.
While you're at it, find out where your home's electrical fuse box or circuit box is located and learn how to turn off power to your home safely. Water and electricity are a deadly combination. Depending on the nature of the flooding, you may need to turn off power to certain areas of the home or the entire building.
Once you have the water and power shut off, you can begin mopping up. If the water is still dripping, take preventative action. For example, if the flood occurred upstairs and the water is seeping through the floor to the room below, place containers beneath to capture the water if possible or cover the carpet with a tarp and place towels on top to absorb the water. If the ceiling is sagging, it means that water is collecting there. It will eventually burst or seep through. Once the floor is protected, poke tiny holes in the ceiling and release the water.
Mop up the water damaged area using absorbent sponges or a wet/dry vacuum cleaner (if it's safe to do so). Remove as much excess water as possible. Move furniture from the damaged area and dry it off completely. If the upholstery is damaged, remove the cushions, use absorbent sponges to soak up as much water as possible, and place outside to dry.
If the walls are affected, remove paintings and place them in a safe location. You may need to remove wallpaper and repaper the walls once everything has dried out due to the mold concerns.
Open the doors and windows if it's dryer outside to help remove moisture and speed up the drying process. It's critical to dry out the area completely to reduce the chance of mold setting in.
Now that you have the basic mop-up complete, you have a few phone calls to make. Call your insurance agent to see if the damage is covered and your local water restoration company to assist with repairs.
