Flood damage usually comes as a surprise. You wake up in the middle of a storm or return home from an evening out, only to find your basement or lower level under water. Whether the water or flood damage is caused by bad plumbing, excess storm water, or any other accident or act of God, the damage caused by floods can be very significant. Even after water removal has been completed, mold and mildew still present a major challenge. Unless you want to spend excess amounts of time cleaning and replacing carpets, walls, and woodworking, you should hire a qualified restoration team. Arizona First Response is a qualified and capable team for restoring your home after water or flood damage in Phoenix Arizona.
Water Damage Repair
The first step in water damage repair is water removal. Arizona First Response can send a team immediately, any time of day, to help as soon as you need them. If possible, find and stop the source of the water (plumbing, faucet, etc). Remove as much water as possible. A wet-vac can be helpful, but be careful not to operate it in a way that could cause electrical damage or electrocution. Mopping wet areas or using towels to soak up water are also good ways to start removing water. Remove portable objects before they are damaged: electronics, furniture, shelved items. Be sure to catalog damaged objects for the insurance company.
Once the source has been stopped and the water has been removed, you need to make sure mildew and mold don’t grow in the damaged areas. Use dry cool air like your air conditioner to dry the affected area – don’t use the heater; that can speed mildew’s growth. De-humidifiers, fans, and open doors are also helpful. The Arizona First Response team has equipment to quickly and properly dry the damaged area. Their technicians will also examine the damage to see if any carpet or drywall should be replaced. Mildew under the carpet or inside a wall can grow quickly.
