How Does Flood Restoration Work?
If a heavy rain, snow, or worse has struck your hometown, or you experience a burst pipes or any other problem with your plumbing, there’s a possibility that your home will become flooded. If this does happen, it’s important that you act
fast and call a carpet cleaning and flood restoration service in Toronto immediately. At Babayan’s, we’ll work to help reduce any risk of permanent damage to your carpet or flooring. You might be asking yourself: “How exactly does flood restoration work?” Let us take you through the process and show you how flood restoration can benefit you.
Speed is a Priority
Where moisture is concerned, it’s important that you address the situation quickly. Mold can set in as quickly as 48 hours after flooding has occurred. Be sure to dry the area as much as possible and call a professional to deal with the repair of any damage your property has endured.
Dealing with Hazardous Substances
If you’re dealing with backed up sewage flowing from your plumbing, it might contain anything from animal feces to chemical and organic waste. This is an environment that’s ideal for the development of bacteria, parasites and viruses that are harmful to
human beings. Our team of professionals are trained to handle these dangerous contaminants and will dispose of them safely and effectively.
Before water is vacuumed out, all furniture is removed so that the damage can be properly assessed and dealt with. For extensive damage, most carpeting, floorboards and a significant portion of drywall are removed and will need to be replaced.
Extraction of Excess Water
After all furniture is removed, pumps are used to extract the water from the affected area of your home. Once this is done, professionals will set up a series of fans and dehumidifiers designed to circulate air around all soaked items. This will
extract moisture and inhibit any growth of mold and other bacteria present in the area. Our experts use specialized devices to keep a close eye on the remaining levels of moisture in all affected areas.
The drying process could take as long as several days to complete. Once this is done, you’ll have to install new baseboards, insulation and carpeting to complete the restoration process.
