Be Careful with Flood Water
Why do we put flood cleanup in a separate category from general water cleanup? Because while flood water and other types of water may look the same, they absolutely belong in two separate categories. Flood water is more dangerous than water from other sources. First of all, it’s guaranteed to have bacteria and viruses that can make you seriously ill. Second, it may contain substances like sewage, gasoline, and chemicals.
Flood damage also goes beyond water. This water barrels in with such force that it can cause structural damage and drag debris into your property. The bottom line is that flood damage should never be taken lightly, and you should never try to handle the damage without professional help.
Always be careful with flood water. Turn off the electricity to the impacted area, see if you can shut off the source of the leak, and if possible, start moving important belongings to higher ground. Otherwise, stay away from the water, and keep your family and/or employees away from it, too. Most importantly, call us as soon as possible. The sooner you call, the sooner we can stop the damage in its tracks.
We Can Help
The American Cleaning team will arrive quickly and get to work right away. What can we do once we arrive? We have a step by step process that we alter as needed depending on your specific situation. Here’s what we can do for your home.
First, we’ll take a look at the damaged area and develop a plan. We’ll work with you and let you know what our next steps will be and how long we think the process might take.
Extraction and Drying
Next, of course, it’s time to get rid of the water. Once we have your approval, we’ll get to work removing the water from your property. Using industrial-level sump pumps, we’ll remove all standing water from the impacted area. Once that part of the job is done, we’ll completely dry the area using powerful fans and dehumidifiers. We’ll bring generators with us to power these tools, so you can keep your electricity turned off until it’s absolutely safe to turn it back on.
Cleanup and Restoration
As your property is drying, we’ll start the cleanup process. As we said above, flood water can make you sick. Whether it only contains germs or is full of sewage and chemicals, it will leave a residue behind as it dries. We’ll get rid of that residue and disinfect your surfaces. Next, we’ll take care of structural damage such as soaked drywall, warped wood, and similar problems.
During this process, we’ll keep an eye out for mold and get rid of any mold that we find. Mold is one of the biggest problems that sticks around after the rest of the flood damage is gone. It only takes a little bit of moisture to start a mold problem, which means that flood water can bring huge amounts of mold. We’ll kill mold where we notice it growing so that you don’t have a secondary problem on your hands.
