Evaluate the Extent of the Damage

Before calling us for dryout services, do a quick investigation of the damaged property and make sure you have done a pre-evaluation of the site.

24/7 Flood and Water Damage Company

Heavy rains, plumbing leaks, appliance failures, tub and toilet overflows, stucco cracks, leaking roofs, and other types of water intrusions can cause devastating damage to homes and businesses in the Treasure Coast area. Without immediate and proper action, moisture can cause the growth of molds, which is an even more urgent concern. That is where proper flood damage cleanup and water damage restoration services come in.

Remediation is an urgent matter after a flood or water intrusion. Mold and mildew usually develop around 24 to 48 hours following water exposure. Unless the source of moisture is identified and corrected immediately, mold infestation is imminent. Mold will grow especially quickly in warm, dark environments like a home left vacant due to vacations or transfers.

Remove Affected Furniture and Other Objects

Elevate furniture before the storm to prevent damage.  If that wasn’t possible, move the furniture to higher ground as soon as possible.

The first procedure requires removing any affected objects from the site. These objects may be cleaned and dried to prevent further damage. This will also allow our technicians to move around easily and proceed to the next phase.

Water Extraction

We extract water using pumps and very strong equipment.

Our technicians will attempt to extract as much water as possible from the site. When most of the standing water has been removed, then water from carpets and flooring will be the next priority.

Drying Your House

We also use dehumidifiers and air movers to accelerate the drying process.

There is a variety of special equipment that can be used for the drying process. For example, air movers are special tools that blow pressurized air to help with the initial drying process. Dehumidifiers also help dry the place quickly by removing moisture from the air. Controlling the temperature and humidity in the area with the proper HVAC settings will also help move things along.

The drying procedure has to be continuously monitored to check progress. Drying time varies depending on the size of the affected area and the extent of the damage. Porous materials such as concrete also take longer to dry. Drying to IICRC recommended levels typically requires multiple days. Hiring the services of a professional company like ours will ensure that proper drying techniques are used to speed up drying time.

  • Location of the affected area
  • Size of the affected area
  • If the flood has already subsided
  • When the flooding started and ended
  • Type of building materials on the property

Use gloves, mask and eye protection before proceeding. Also, open the windows and the doors to keep the area ventilated.
