You should never undermine the seriousness of a flood disaster on your property, because it is plausible that the water could be contaminated with bacteria and microorganisms that can be hazardous to your health. The most important factor is focusing on the safety of you and your family. In this situation, it is advisable to contact a team of restoration professionals, such as Jarvis Property Restoration. Since 1979 we have provided Sterling Heights residents with a peace of mind, knowing that their properties will be returned to its former glory, if not better, in no time at all. It is important to keep in mind that there are three different classifications of water that could be present in your home after a flood or water disaster. Category I is clear water, Category II is grey water, and Category III is black water. Category III water can be caused by a sewer backup or even flood water that has been contaminated. This should always be handled by the professionals as it can have toxic materials within it.
The most common side effect from standing water is the spread of mold or airborne toxins. Within 48 hours of the emergency, water can begin to create mold spores on the surfaces within your property. This potential is one of the main reasons property owners should react with urgency if they have a water damage emergency. The naked eye can not always detect the source or full extent of water damage. Professional restoration companies can utilize moisture meters and thermal imaging devices to pinpoint the origination of the water leak as well as extent of water damage in a property.
Severe flooding or large scale water damage emergencies will require additional equipment to extract the excess water from the property. A local property restoration company can utilize vacuum powered pumps to remove excess water quickly and effectively. Once the excess water has been removed, we will use fans, special heaters or dehumidifiers to dry out your property. Depending on the extent of the water damage this process can take between twenty four to seventy two hours to thoroughly dry your home.
The multiple weather and season changes Macomb County Michigan residents experience can often can bring on unexpected conditions that could lead to a water related emergency. Sterling Heights home owners and business property managers should treat water damage cleanup with extreme urgency.
