What You Should Know About Cleaning Water Damage

Water Damage is a Disaster

Water damage in a home due to leaking pipes or other reasons is a nightmare of any homeowner. The owners of homes with water damage can go through a terrible experience trying to properly clean up the damage. Instead of hiring professional water damage repair service to tear down your home and get rid of water damage, you can try to do this yourself. You’ll need to start right away there no room for delay.

First, Turn Off The Power

Doing it yourself can save not only money but also your home. One of the most important things that you need to take care before cleaning water damage is the main power supply of your house. Make sure that it has been turned off. Safety First.

You Need Proper Equipment

Your house can be affected either by dirty water or clean water depending on its source. Whatever the type of water, there is some necessary equipment that you will need for cleaning water damage which includes vacuum pumps, disinfectants, deodorizers and some protective gear for you.

Pump Out Any Standing Water

Use the vacuum pump to drain out excess water that has accumulated in your home. If carpets have also been affected by water, they should be cleaned, disinfected and deodorized. You will need to get rid of the extra padding under carpets.

You May Have to Remove Some Sheet Rock

To dry the walls, you can form air cavities in them to ensure proper circulation of air, so they dry up quicker than usual. To further dry the affected areas of your home, use fans and dehumidifiers. It is essential to make sure you remove all the water, and there are no hidden areas left wet. Any wet area let will be a breeding ground for mold and mildew. That’s a brand new problem that will be expensive to solve. You need to hire an Austin mold damage service to remediate the mold. Most insurance companies now cap mold remediation reimbursements at $5000. If your home has an insurance plan, you will then have to get in touch with the insurance company to pay for the damages.
