Why You Need Water Extraction Services After a Flood

If you’re dealing with excess water caused by natural disasters or other causes, such as heavy rain or burst pipes, this could lead to several problems and safety hazards that require immediate attention and professional assistance. These issues include:

  1. Mildew and Mold Growth: Excess moisture in the affected areas can create the perfect breeding ground for mildew and mold. These fungi can spread rapidly, causing further damage to your property and posing health risks.
  2. Damage to the Structure of the Building: Prolonged exposure to water can weaken the structural integrity of the building. This can result in structural damage, including weakened walls, floors, and ceilings, which may require extensive repairs or even reconstruction.
  3. Unpleasant Odours: Standing water and damp environments can produce musty and unpleasant odors that can permeate your home or business. These odors are not only unpleasant but can also be difficult to remove without professional help.
  4. Contaminated Water: Floodwaters often carry various contaminants, including sewage, chemicals, and bacteria. Coming into contact with contaminated water can pose serious health risks, such as gastrointestinal issues, skin infections, and respiratory problems.
  5. Allergic Reactions and Asthma Attacks: Exposure to mold, dust mites, and other allergens commonly found in water-damaged environments can trigger allergic reactions and worsen asthma symptoms. This can be particularly dangerous for individuals with respiratory conditions.

Our experts can provide you with a detailed assessment of the damage, including the presence of mould and other potential hazards.

By promptly addressing the water extraction process and implementing effective drying techniques, we can mitigate further damage, prevent mould growth, and minimize the risk of allergic reactions and asthma attacks for you and your loved ones.

Water Extraction – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How does water extraction work?

Water extraction is the process of removing water from a home or property and returning it to its pre-flood condition. This involves using heavy-duty pumps, industrial vacuums, and specialized cleaning equipment to remove standing water, moisture, and other contaminants. The process also includes drying out wet materials such as carpets, walls, and furniture. After the water has been completely removed, our team of experts can assess any additional damage and develop a plan for restoration.

Which method is used for water extraction?

The method of water extraction used depends on the type and amount of water damage. For example, if the area is flooded with several feet of standing water, then a pump may be necessary to remove the majority of the water before any other techniques can be used. If there are smaller pockets or areas of moisture, then a water extractor or wet vac can be used to suction out the remaining moisture, while an air mover or dehumidifier may be necessary to thoroughly dry the area and remove any lingering moisture.

What is an example of a water extraction?

An example of water extraction is the process of placing a wet vac or water extractor on the affected area and suctioning out any excess moisture that remains. This process helps to prevent further damage from occurring, such as mould growth or warped floors and walls.

What are surface water systems?

Surface water systems are systems designed to manage stormwater runoff from roofs, driveways, patios, streets and other surfaces. These systems prevent large amounts of contaminated water from entering bodies of water by collecting, storing and treating the runoff before it is released into local waterways. Examples of surface water systems include rain gardens, bioswales and permeable pavement.
