Advanced drying techniques will aid in the cleanup process to make certain your property is returned to its previous condition.

Fast Assistance for Sanibel Water/Flood Damage Cleanup

Water and flood damage can occur without any warning. You may experience a leaky roof after a heavy rainstorm or large rainfalls that could lead to water seeping into your property underneath your doors and damaging your carpets and flooring. If a hurricane, tornado or another type of natural disaster affects your area, severe water damage could occur through a broken window or roof. Sometimes, toilets overflow, leading to serious issues with contaminated water. A flooded dishwasher, a burst water pipe or many other problems could also lead to flooding in your home.

Helpful tools that expedite the process of water removal and drying and restoration include a submersible pump (sump pump), truck mounted pumps and wet vacuums. Moisture detectors and hygrometers can also be used. They measure the amount of water and moisture in your property. Also, infrared cameras can help make sure that there are no hidden sources of water behind walls or in hard-to-see spaces. Powerful truck-mounted or portable extraction machines can get rid of most of the water in your residence. When the bulk of the standing water has been dealt with, industrial grade dryers and dehumidifiers should be turned on to make ensure that your property is thoroughly dried. Your carpet or carpet padding might need to be removed so that the subfloor underneath does not get damaged. Unfortunately, other materials around the house may need to be replaced if the damage is too severe, or if the standing water is quickly removed.
