If the water damage is not excessive or potentially dangerous, you can take these steps to clean and dry the water-damaged area yourself:
- Your first step is to locate the source of the water that is flooding your home or business property. Take whatever step is necessary to stop the entry of additional water onto the property.
- Using a bucket, mop, or towels, remove as much of the water as you can, and dispose of it properly.
- Remove water-damaged items, including furniture and carpets, and allow them to fully dry in a well-ventilated area.
- Open windows, turn on fans, and place drying equipment in the area to begin the drying out process.
- Use the appropriate disinfecting products to clean the walls and floors and avoid the potential for mold and mildew.
Remember to always protect yourself by wearing appropriate safety gear and waterproof boots, and making sure electric power in the water-damaged area is turned off.
Proper and thorough drying of water damage in your home or business requires powerful equipment and the right combination of air movement and dehumidification. The most common types of equipment are air movers, which are used to increase air circulation in the area, and dehumidifiers, which condense the humidity in the air back into water that can be removed more easily from the premises or directed into a bathtub or sump pump basin for appropriate drainage. Air movers provide high speed airflow, which accelerates the dry time for carpets and floors. When air circulation is increased, the water on your property evaporates more quickly, thereby promoting a more rapid drying out of the affected area.
All Flood & Fire is proud to have the Phoenix 200 MAX high capacity, low-grain refrigerant dehumidifier available for our customers to rent. Phoenix™ Restoration Equipment, maker of the Phoenix 200 MAX, touts this drying device as one of the most effective and versatile on the market today. In addition, the Phoenix 200 MAX features considerable air filtration which serves to improve the air quality in the area you are drying out.
Whether the water in your home or business is from a burst pipe, broken appliance, leaky roof, or storm damage, All Flood & Fire has just the right equipment for you to dry the entire area. Of course, if you realize the damage is greater than you originally thought, or the mess is just too much to clean up yourself, the professionals at All Flood & Fire are always available to help.
