Timing Is Vital When It Comes To A Water Damage Disaster In Your Lafayette Home
The Faster Water Cleanup Happens In Lafayette Lessens Loss From Water Damage
Water damage can come in many forms in a home. A leaking roof or storm damage can allow rain or flood waters entry into a home. Hot water tanks or a broken pipe can saturate floors, and in areas above, ceilings and walls fall victim. The key to avoiding as much damage as possible to both structure and possessions is to act quickly and have the water professionally extracted.
Water cleanup in Lafayette homes needs to begin as soon as possible after the incident. The type of water removal efforts undertaken depends upon if the water is rated as clean, gray or black. After 48 hours, all standing water is handled as a black water situation due to probable contaminants.
SERVPRO technicians can be on site within four hours to begin water extraction. We have numerous resources to clean up standing water and eliminate excess moisture using industrial air movers, so there are not favorable conditions for microbial colonies to grow, this is especially significant with the humid conditions in Louisiana.
Once the moisture is removed, SERVPRO technicians wipe down surfaces with professional antifungals to ensure they are free of microbes. Drying the home can eliminate much of the odor, but sometimes additional techniques are required as part of the cleanup effort. Drywall that was compromised by water and items that cannot be restored through cleaning is also removed.
An essential part of the cleanup process is that that home not only is hygienic, but it needs to smell fresh and clean. Our certified Odor Control Technicians apply different methods to neutralize odors left by water such as masking agents like deodorizing beads for scents that require minor treatment. The application of filtration and absorption agents that absorb humidity and moisture is another effective method. Often multiple methods are necessary to eradicate odors.
