We strive to help our customers save money by drying their property as fast as possible to prevent mold growth from occurring. No one wants to see little black fuzzy things growing on their walls so it is important to get the drying process started as soon as possible after flooding has occurred.
We will start by assessing the your particular situation and coming up with the proper game plan to achieve our drying goals. We will start by saving as much of your furniture and personal items by removing them from the affected areas. Flooding can destroy your items as soon as it touches it but some things can be saved if removed in a timely manner. The first thing that a homeowner should do is make sure that they are safe. After you are safe then you can save your valuables and keep sakes once the water subsides. Time is of the essence as mold will begin to grow as soon as 24 hours after the water damage as occurred. It does not matter if you live in the 75201 or the 76101 because we can be there in an hour depending on traffic!
After the flood water has been removed then we will proceed in removing the affected flooring. Carpet and pad can not be saved when it is hit by category three water. We will extract, cut, bag and remove all carpet and padding that has been hit by such water. Floating floors and laminate also need to be removed after flooding to ensure a clean and sanitary environment. Baseboards need to be pulled and dry wall needs to be removed up to eighteen inches above the water line. If the insulation is wet then it will no longer be effective and needs to be replaced. Once all of the water and soft building materials have been removed drying the property can be achieved.
Drying after flooding can take anywhere from one day up to a week, but is usually achieved within 2-3 days. There is a lot that goes in to the science of drying that can affect dry time. That is why it is important to remove as much water as possible before the drying equipment is put into place, You need to have air flow over everything that is wet. Dallas/Fort Worth is a humid place but not nearly as humid as Houston. It is important to know the humidity and temperature both inside and outside of the property when drying is taking place. We monitor the progress of drying with a moisture chart system by using the right moisture meters and thermal hydrometers.
Flood waters from over the ground are category three, which means it is just as bad as sewage. Flood water contains all the organic material that is on top of the ground, and that leads to a much greater chance for adverse affects. Property will mold quicker and the water itself can make you sick. It is important to apply sanitizer every where that category three water touches. We use hospital ban disinfectants that are designed to kill all micro organisms. Our sanitizers are much more effective than bleach, which is what homeowners are encouraged to use if they have no other options. It is important to leave things clean and sanitary when you are done with your flood cleanup.
Sewage cleanup and flood water cleanup are very similar as they are both category three as soon as they damage a home or business. 2nd Chance Water Restoration specializes in the cleanup of both sewage and flood water cleanup. We will bio-wash and extract all the dirty water, sanitize, dry and then sanitize again until your floors are cleaner than before the flooding.
