Serious and extensive water damage can happen very quickly to drywalls, carpets, homes and businesses. Studies show that flood water left for longer than 48 hours has the potential to do the most damage. The flood water can compromise the structure of a house as it seeps through the walls, and can also affect the drywall. Carpeted areas are more prone than wood floors to cause serious mold and water damage issues when left unattended to, so dont put off the problem. The more opportunity flood water has to sit, the more costly and time-consuming the process will be to restore the area back to its original condition.
Proper and adequate ventilation is very important once we rid your home of the water. We place fans around the affected area and also recommend opening as many doors and windows as possible. A consistent airflow into the areas affected by the flood assists in the flood water extraction process and decreases the chances for mold to form.
