Water Damage Cleanup – White Plains NY Expert Tips In Time Management

Maximize Efforts By Making The Most Of Your Time – Water Damage Cleanup White Plains, NY 

Water damage cleanupwater damage cleanup white plains ny can be an overwhelming process, especially when your home and belongings have been affected. You don’t have a lot of time to act in order to prevent further damage like mold growth or to save valued possessions before they become completely ruined, so every minute counts. Here is how you can make the most of your time and begin water damage cleanup as soon as possible in your White Plains home.

  1. First things first, shut off all electricity to the damaged area. Safety is the number one priority, and water and electricity can be a deadly combination. Also, be wary of contaminated water. Water that has entered your home could have come in contact with harmful chemicals and contaminants, making it a threat to your health and well-being so avoid contact with water whenever possible. 

  2. Before any cleanup, salvaging, disinfecting, and repairs can begin, the water has to be removed. Water extraction can be a complicated process, especially if the scope of the damage is severe. Water pumps can be utilized to remove the water from your home in a timely manner, making extraction a much more feasible task. 

  3. One of the most important steps of water damage cleanup, if not the most important, is to dry out the affected area. All moisture needs to be removed as soon as possible to prevent mold growth, structural damage, and deterioration of personal belongings. Commercial-grade air movers, dehumidifiers, and moisture monitoring equipment can prove invaluable in drying out your home quickly and thoroughly. If moisture is left available in the area, mold can begin to grow in as little as 24 hours so there really is no time to waste. Get the water-damaged area dried out as soon as possible. 

  4. Once all the moisture has been removed and the area is dried, you can inspect for further damage. Be on the lookout for signs of mold growth, structural changes, warped floors, bowing walls, and saggy ceilings. Porous materials like carpet, upholstery, insulation, and fabric may need to be disposed of if cleaning and restoration services are not proven to be successful. 

  5. As soon as all damaged materials have been removed from the affected area, disinfecting and deep cleaning can begin. In order to thwart microbial growth and spread, surfaces need to be cleaned with industry-proven and approved solutions.

  6. Now repairs, rebuilding, and replacement can begin on any structural elements of the home. New flooring, drywall, insulation, ceilings, trim, baseboards, any areas that have sustained damage can be rebuilt, repaired, and replaced – returning your home to its pre-loss condition.
