Why is it important to call FloodCo immediately for emergency water removal? By quickly extracting water and beginning a thorough dry-out out, it is possible to save expensive building materials like wallboard, fiberglass insulation, flooring including hardwood, Pergo, vinyl flooring or carpeting and area rugs. If the process begins within 24 to 48 hours it is possible to arrest the growth of microbes like bacteria, mold and mildew. After that, the growth of mold and bacteria rapidly accelerates, causing smelly, downright unsanitary conditions. The restoration process becomes more complicated and time consuming as well. The faster FloodCo responds, the less the cost of a dry-out and restoration – for you and for your insurance company.
Your flooding, from a pipe leak for example, might seem manageable, and you may be tempted to use your small household fans to try to dry a carpet or hardwood floor. This is often a big mistake, leading to even greater expense. Household fans and heaters simply don’t have enough oomph and airflow to quickly dry wet building materials. Dehumidifiers are often essential to speeding the drying process when used with commercial air movers.
Improperly dried carpets or wallboard will begin to propagate stinky mold or bacteria, often within only 48 hours. Mold and bacteria can quickly turn a clean house into an unsanitary or dangerous place to be. Damage that starts with clean water will transform to a black water situation in as little as 48 hours once water activates the microbes latent in all carpet and other porous materials.
Mold and odor remediation is predictably required if structural dry-out is not achieved within a few days. Mold will thrive inside wet wall cavities and carpet pad.
An improperly dried hardwood floor may cup, warp and crack.
FloodCo has the professional equipment and know-how to save expensive hardwood floors by using patented Injectidry technology to evenly remove moisture from all surfaces -top, bottom and sides.
