Do you have a business?
You need minimal interruption when repairing the flood damage…..
Yes, we run a business too and we know how stressful it can be when there is a disaster like water damage. The method we efficiently repair water damage is:
- Top down drying method – This is where we do not have to remove, or detach the carpet from the floor to dry it. Works in most cases, usually when there is no carpet underlay i.e. the carpet is directly glued to the carpet. Also when the water damage has not been sitting there for too long.
- Installation of Dehumidifiers – To dry the water damage. We use air movers, but dehumidifiers can greatly speed up the water damage drying time.
To minimise the water damage and job cost follow these simple steps:
- Think & practice safety first
- Turn off main power switch, then turn off & disconnect all plugs from wall sockets for all electrical appliances in affected areas
- Find the source of the water & stop it, if possible
- Remove as much water as possible by mopping or put as many towels as you can to soak up the water damage on the carpet and other flooring with water damage
- Lift the curtains off the floor and hang it on a coat hanger on the curtain rod
- Turn the air conditioning on if possible. This will reduce the humidity in the air and help dry the water damage, do not turn it on if it is flooded.
- Use fans to help circulate the air, do not use when flooded.
- Put aluminium foil or plastic shopping bags under furniture to prevent non-reversible staining to the carpet.
- Wipe the furniture dry with a towel
- Move rugs off the carpet to prevent staining
- Don’t use an ordinary vacuum to suck up the water
- Do not lift carpet from the edges without the proper tooling, this can rip threads in the carpet and make it impossible to restore.
- Do not use electrical appliances
- Don’t walk though a storm or flood damaged property with standing water unless you can be absolutely sure the main power is turned off
- Don’t use flood damaged electrical appliances
