Tips for Cleaning Your Home After Water Damage

Water in unwanted places can cause a lot of damage. Not only can it ruin your prized possessions, but also the house in which they are stored. If you’re able to act quickly, you can minimize the damage and possibly save some of your possessions. Some of your success depends on how long the water’s been around, there might be pieces of furniture that can be saved, and sometimes, even carpet, but any electronics hit by water are probably doomed.

Don’t treat flood water in unwanted places lightly: even if your basement only has an inch of water in it, or is even just damp, it is the perfect breeding ground for mold. Mold growth not only ruins walls, furniture, carpets, flooring, etc., it can lead to poor indoor air quality causing respiratory problems including asthma, and can lead to severe illness. Preventing mold growth is key to keeping your home’s air clean and healthy. So in addition to calling your insurance company, here are a few tips to deal with your flooded basement and minimize the water damage. (Call your insurance company before you do anything, and tell them what you want to do.)

  1. Disconnect the power, unplug any electronics, and remove electronics, furniture and movable items immediately. The faster you get items out of water’s way, the more likely you’ll be able to save them. Definitely move all electrical items first, and if you can, turn off your power leading into the affected area, especially if water rises above electrical outlets. Pull up any carpets (wall to wall and area rugs) and underpadding. You may be able to save the carpet if you get it cleaned and disinfected, however, it may shrink and be better off as an area rug afterwards. It’s unlikely you’ll be able to save the underpadding, which acts like a sponge and absorbs a lot of water.
  2. Get rid of the water. There are several ways to get rid of the water. If you don’t have power, or are worried about loose wires, the old-fashioned, manual way will work. Use old towels, buckets and mops to soak up as much water as possible. As long as sewers in your neighbourhood aren’t backed up, you can pour the water down the drain, otherwise, pour onto your lawn or other permeable surface. A wet/dry vacuum can be used too, note: be very careful to plug it into outlets far away from water. Don’t use an extension cord as the connection could also short out and give you a nasty shock. Water and electricity don’t mix! If your basement or other flooded area is overwhelming and you have power, consider renting (if available) a sump pump from your local Rent-all or hardware stores. Getting rid of all the water and drying out the area is the most important thing you can do to prevent mold growth.

  3. Dry out the affected area. Once you’ve mopped up all the water, use fans and  a dehumidifier to help dry out the area. If it’s stopped raining, open windows to allow for air circulation and faster drying. You want to dry the area out as soon as possible. If you have a finished basement and the drywall was affected, you’ll probably have to cut away the areas that were touched by water as the drywall will crumble and the paper backing is a good source of food for mold. If you have baseboard trim, take it up first, and if it’s made from pressboard it will likely not be salvageable. If it was wood, you might be able to save it.
  4. Disinfect. After the area has dried out, including wood beams, insulation, drywall, etc., use a good disinfectant to get rid of any bacteria that might have come up through sewers, toilets, etc.Gloves Off Disinfectant, is a non-toxic but powerful disinfectant. Disinfect all areas affected by the flood waters including walls and wood and non-upholstered furniture that sat in flood water.
  5. Prevent mold growth. After you’ve disinfected and let the area thoroughly dry out, apply Concrobium throughout the affected area according to directions. I can’t say enough good things about this product; it is non-toxic, made with distilled water and inorganic salts. You can use it on furniture, walls, floors, basically anything that is susceptible to mold growth. Once a thin layer of Concrobium is applied, let it dry overnight. As Concrobium dries, it forms a thin layer over any mold that may be growing and actually crushes the roots of the spores. Wherever it’s sprayed will prevent any mold from growing, providing continued resistance. If you’re spraying an entire room, you might want to consider renting a mister from a hardware store such as Home Depot. It’s easy to use and very fast.
  6. Dispose of damaged items responsibly: you’ll be tempted to throw everything into a dumpster and send it all away and out of site. But if you can organize damaged goods into piles and take what you can to recycling centres, you will help alleviate the pressure on your local landfill site. Go to your city or town’s waste management website to find out where to recycle old paints, stains, adhesives and other toxic liquids, any damaged electronics from cell phones to TVs and computers, furniture, and even drywall. You can also look through Earth 911 to find recycling centres in your neighbourhood.

Why You Need to Call a Water Damage Company for Assistance

Every home will handle a water damage issue in a different way. Some immediately call a plumber or roofer to deal with the cause of the issue, but they may not schedule remediation services for the water issue. Others may attempt to do all of the repair work on their own. These are only a few of the many ways homeowners respond to water damage in the home. While these are a few options to consider, there are significant reasons why you need to call a water damage company San Diego CA for assistance with your issue.

Why You Need a Fast Response

Timing is critical when you are dealing with free-flowing water in your rooms. Water typically will be absorbed by most of the surfaces it touches, such as your carpeting and padding, your wood furniture and flooring, your cabinets, your drywall and more. This can cause a soppy mess, but more importantly, it can damage these surfaces through staining, deterioration, warping and more. The longer it remains in the home, the more significant the damage can be and the more likely you are to have mold growth. A water damage company can more quickly extract the water and dry out the home than you are able to on your own. this can limit the extent of damage and keep repair costs at bay.

Why You Do Not Want to Repair the Damage on Your Own

Even when the water has been fully removed from the home, you will still have water damage to contend with. This may include staining on various surfaces, a foul or musty odor throughout your rooms, destroyed drywall, warped cabinets and wood floors and more. In many cases, it can take a homeowner many months to fully restore the home, and the results generally are not professional-grade. This lengthy period of time can cause you stress and can impair the daily lifestyle of the family until the work is completed. In addition, because the results may not be professional-grade, the condition and the value of the home may be impaired. This ultimately affects your personal finances.

What is Water damage ?

Water damage describes a large number of possible losses caused by water intruding where it will enable attack of a material orsystem by destructive processes such as rotting of wood, growth, rusting of steel, de-laminating of materials such as plywood, and many others.

The damage may be imperceptibly slow and minor such as water spots that could eventually mar a surface, or it may be instantaneous and catastrophic such as flooding. However fast it occurs, water damage is a major contributor to loss of property.

An insurance policy may or may not cover the costs associated with water damage and the process of water damage restoration. While a common cause of residential water damage is often the failure of a sump pump, many homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover the associated costs without an addendum which adds to the monthly premium of the policy. Often the verbiage of this addendum is similar to “Sewer and Drain Coverage”.

Those individuals who are affected by wide scale flooding may have the ability to apply for government and FEMA grants through the Individual Assistance program. On a larger level, businesses, cities, and communities can apply to the FEMA Public Assistanceprogram for funds to assist after a large flood. For example, the city of Fond du Lac Wisconsin received $1.2 million FEMA grant after flooding in June 2008. The program allows the city to purchase the water damaged properties, demolish the structures, and turn the properties into public green space.

Causes

Water damage can originate by different sources such as a broken dishwasher hose, a washing machine overflow, a dishwasher leakage, broken/leaking pipes, and clogged toilets. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 13.7% of all water used in the home today can be attributed to plumbing leaks. On average that is approximately 10,000 gallons of water per year wasted by leaks for each US home. A tiny, 1/8-inch crack in a pipe can release up to 250 gallons of water a day.According to Claims Magazine in August 2000, broken water pipes ranked second to hurricanes in terms of both the number of homes damaged and the amount of claims (on average $50,000 per insurance claim[citation needed]) costs in the US.Experts suggest that homeowners inspect and replace worn pipe fittings and hose connections to all household appliances that use water at least once a year. This includes washing machines, dishwashers, kitchen sinks and bathroom lavatories, refrigerator icemakers, water softeners and humidifiers. A few US companies offer whole-house leak protection systems utilizing flow-based technologies. A number of insurance companies offer policy holders reduced rates for installing a whole-house leak protection system.

As far as insurance coverage is concerned, most damage caused by bad weather is considered flood damage and normally is not covered under homeowners insurance. Coverage for bad weather would usually require flood insurance.

Categories 

Category 1 Water – Refers to a source of water that does not pose substantial threat to humans and classified as “clean water“. Examples are broken water supplylines, tub or sink overflows or appliance malfunctions that involves water supply lines.

Category 2 Water – Refers to a source of water that contains a significant degree of chemical, biological or physical contaminants and causes discomfort or sickness when consumed or even exposed to. Known as “grey water“. This type carries micro organisms and nutrients of micro organisms. Examples are toilet bowls with urine (no feces), sump pump failures, seepage due to hydrostatic failure and water discharge from dishwashers or washing machines.

Category 3 Water – Known as “black water” and is grossly unsanitary. This water contains unsanitary agents, harmful bacteria and fungi, causing severe discomfort or sickness. Type 3 category are contaminated water sources that affects the indoor environment. This category includes water sources from sewage, seawater, rising water from rivers or streams, ground surface water or standing water. Category 2 Water or Grey Water that is not promptly removed from the structure and or have remained stagnant may be re classified as Category 3 Water. Toilet back flows that originates from beyond the toilet trap is considered black water contamination regardless of visible content or color.

Classes[edit]

Class of water damage is determined by the probable rate of evaporation based on the type of materials affected, or wet, in the room or space that was flooded. Determining the class of water damage is an important first step, and will determine the amount and type of equipment utilized to dry-down the structure

Class 1 – Slow Rate of Evaporation. Affects only a portion of a room. Materials have a low permeance/porosity. Minimum moisture is absorbed by the materials.

Class 2 – Fast Rate of Evaporation. Water affects the entire room of carpet and cushion. May have wicked up the walls, but not more than 24 inches.

Class 3 – Fastest Rate of Evaporation. Water generally comes from overhead, affecting the entire area; walls, ceilings, insulation, carpet, cushion, etc.

Class 4 – Specialty Drying Situations. Involves materials with a very low permeance/porosity, such as hardwood floors, concrete, crawlspaces, plaster, etc. Drying generally requires very low specific humidity to accomplish drying.

Restoration

Different removal methods and measures are used depending on the category of water. Due to the destructive nature of water, chosen restoration methods also depend heavily on the amount of water, and on the amount of time the water has remained stagnant. For example, as long as carpet has not been wet for longer than 48 hours, and the water involved was not sewage based, a carpet can usually be saved; however, if the water has soaked for longer, then the carpet is probably irreparable and will have to be replaced.[8] Water damage restoration can be performed by property management teams, building maintenance personnel, or by the homeowners themselves; however, contacting a certified professional water damage restoration specialist is often regarded as the safest way to restore water damaged property.

Water Damage

Water Damage

Water mitigation is the process of reducing or preventing the amount of water damage that happens after a flood or a permeating leak. It prevents additional damage by taking fast, appropriate actions.

Water mitigation is needed after plumbing failures or when storms cause water to rush into your home. Soaked rugs, damaged walls, warped flooring and ruined furniture are only the beginning if mitigation is not engaged quickly.

Specific steps are taken to reduce property destruction, to prevent further water damage and to restore your property to its full value.

When to Call For Water Mitigation

Seeping water damage is progressive, pervasive and can mean valuable objects may become permanently damaged – especially if emergency response is delayed beyond the first 48 hours.

Water damage is usually caused by a plumbing failure. When moisture seeps into anything of value there are immediate steps that can be taken to reduce the amount of long-term damage that results.

Steps to take as soon as you detect flood damage:

  • Remain calm so your thinking stays clear
  • Close the water main or shut off any water source so flooding stops
  • Shut down the electrical breaker in damaged areas before unplugging or removing any electrical devices from the wet carpet or submerged areas.
  • Put aluminum foil under legs or feet of any furniture in contact with wet carpet or water to prevent permanent staining
  • Lift any curtains or draperies away from wet carpet or water
  • Lift and tack up any upholstered furniture skirts
  • Remove books, papers, fabrics, shoes, potted plants or other items that are able to stain wet carpet

Avoid doing these things:

  • Use your home vacuum – electrical shock can result, as well as damage to the equipment
  • Place newspaper in traffic areas to walk on – newspaper ink transfers easily to wet carpet fibers which results in permanent staining
  • Walk on carpet any more than necessary – this keeps damage from spreading to unaffected areas

Water Damage Restoration in Spring Valley CA

Water damage takes much of the household’s income and time during restoration. Spring Valley residents are more susceptible to water losses of all types ranging from sink or toilet overflows, severe storms, burst pipes, or heavy snowing. Water damage can cause the growth of mold or damage to wooden walls, plaster, and floors if left to stay for long without clearance. Restoration not only involves drying up the water but also requires other processes such as dehumidification and mold inspection by water damage experts in Spring Valley CA.

tWhy Seek Services from a Water Damage Company?

Most Spring Valley residents would be tempted to handle all the water instead of using services from a water damage company. However, the process may be frustrating and aggravating since they do not have the essential gear and skills required in handling the damage. A qualified and certified expert, on the other hand, carries out the restoration process from assessment to the final repairs. TSC Restoration is available on 24/7 hour basis to take care of our client’s water damage problems. The professionals use state of the art equipment and innovative techniques to restore your house to its original state.

How we Handle the Cleanup Process

You should contact our water removal company within 48 hours since the water damage occurred to prevent development of mold in the house. Mold tends to complicate the water damage problem further.

Assessment

Our team of professionals responds in a swift way upon receiving a call from the Spring Valley residents. We conduct an inspection and damage assessment for your home to identify the source of the water damage and check for contamination in the house. An expert also assesses the extent of damage, which helps the water damage company Spring Valley CA to develop the appropriate plan of Action.

The Extraction Process

We use water removal pumps and wet/dry vacuums to remove all water from the house. Water removal prevents antibacterial and mold growth as well as reducing the drying time. We also use cameras to inspect any hidden water behind the walls and ceilings, which would lead to growth of mold.

Drying and Dehumidification

After removal of excess water, our experts from our water removal company use fans and dehumidifiers to remove any moisture in the house. Moisture promotes the growth of mold, warping of floors and furniture, or walls breakdown. Dehumidifiers prevent subsequent water damage from the accumulation of moisture while the airflow from the fans and air movers accelerate drying in the building.

Cleaning and Sanitization

Water damage leaves a distinct odor in a building, which fades away after a thorough cleaning. We provide professional cleaning of walls, ceilings, and floors as well as the furniture in the house. We arrange for removal of the porous material in the house, which are breeding grounds for molds. We recognize the importance of sanitization to keep your house away from any germs. A mold spray also protects the house from growth of moisture.

Repair and Restoration

TSC Restoration in collaboration with the insurance companies handles all the destroyed items following water damage. The repairs may include replacement of drywall, fixing broken pipes, or extreme situations like foundation repairs.

Conclusion

When you detect any water leakages in your home or office, you should promptly call our expert water disaster response teams for help.

Why Choose TSC Restoration For Water Damage In San Diego, CA

Water Damage Restoration San Diego CA

Water damage may seem like something you would rarely or never have to deal with, but the reality is that it is far more common than you might think. At first glance, you may think that major water issues in the home stem from natural weather events that cause serious floods. However, they can also be caused by ruptured pipes, leaking roofs, broken appliances and other factors. If you have discovered water flowing freely through your home, it is imperative that you contact us for water damage restoration as soon as possible.

What to Do at the First Sign of Water Damage

Water can be one of the most damaging forces that a homeowner may contend with. Many surfaces of your home can be damaged by water exposure, and common types of water damage include staining, warping, deterioration, rotting and more. Some surfaces may easily develop mold growth when a surface or even the air remains moist for more than a few days. Therefore, it is important that you act quickly to address the issue. Your first priority should be to stop the flow of additional water into the home if possible. In the event of a flood from a major storm, you may not be able to prevent more water from entering the home. However, with ruptured pipes, you may be able to turn off the main water valve to the home to prevent more water from entering. Roof leaks and broken appliances can also be addressed to keep water out of the home until help arrives.

What to Expect from TSC Restoration

Your water damage restoration team will not repair pipes, roofs and other features, so a specialist will need to be called to make these repairs. The restoration team will work initially to extract water from the home. Once all water has been removed, the moisture in the air and in surfaces, such as drywall and carpeting, will be addressed. Large dehumidifying fans will be placed in the home to return the humidity level to a normal level. This process often takes several days, and restoration and cleanup can begin after this step has been completed. The restoration team may clean some items, such as carpeting. Deodorization may also be necessary if the home has a musty smell. Replacement of some items may also be required. For example, wood floors, cabinetry and drywall usually cannot be salvaged.
