    Water Removal

    Water damage is a big drag! No one wants to be faced with a leak or a flood in their home. It’s damaging, disruptive, and often smells bad. If you’re faced with water in your home, here’s what you need to know about removal:

    Timing is Key

    When you have water in your home you want to take action now. The longer you wait to get the water removed, the more damage it can do to your home and property. In addition, mold can start growing in less than 24 hours. It goes without mentioning, mold is really bad. It’s toxic and destructive, and you want to avoid it by acting fast to get rid of the water.

    The Process is Scientific

    Water extraction is a science and with it comes specific tools and techniques to make sure it’s done properly. Although you might be tempted to try to get rid of the water and moisture yourself, it’s likely you’ll end up with residual moisture that can continue to do damage. So this is the time to trust the professionals. Here’s what they’ll do:

    • Water removal with state-of-the-art extraction tools
    • Drying and moisture removal with industrial fans and dehumidifiers
    • Deodorizing any areas that were affected by the water
    • Sanitizing the area to prevent the growth of mold and bacteria

    Knowing Where to Find the Water

    Water hides in strange places. You might think all of the water has been removed, but a professional knows where to find the hidden moisture that can cause more damage. It will hide behind walls, under flooring, in fixtures, and inside cabinets. An experienced technician can find and remove all of the water.

    If you’ve had a leak or a flood, don’t wait to call in a professional for water removal. The sooner you get the water out, the less damage there will likely be and the fewer opportunities for mold and mildew to grow.
