Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Why Trust The Pro's at SERVPRO

9/1/2022 (Permalink)

If you have water damage in your home, it’s important that you hire professionals that are certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to handle the cleanup job. These technicians have been trained to handle the cleanup and restoration process so that the damage caused is kept to a minimum. However, before the professionals arrive, there are some things that you can do to begin the process.

Why Homes Are Sensitive to Water Damage

When the water that’s collected in your home recedes, the moisture from the damage is difficult to detect. This is the main reason why homes are sensitive to water damage. Microbial growth can begin within 24 hours of the damage due to standing water and can saturate different types of textiles and can seep through your drywall. The moisture has the ability to collect behind walls and create troublesome mold and bacteria out of the sight of occupants. If you react quickly, you may be able to save items such as clothes and furniture. But make sure to be very careful when entering a building that has recently been flooded. Any exposure to wildlife and contaminated water that may have accompanied the flooding could result in serious injury.
