Professionals Describe How You Can Conduct Water Cleanup In Ormond Beach
Whenever excessive moisture makes its way into your Ormond Beach residence, it can get many of your contents and building materials wet causing them to have to be either dried out or removed and replaced. During most disasters like this, it is wise to call in a professional water cleanup company such as SERVPRO because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. However, if the damage is minor, there are things you can do yourself.
If water cleanup inside your Ormond Beach home gets conducted properly by you, then you can reduce the chances of having to call a company like SERVPRO in the future for secondary damage like mold growth. During any mitigation project, whether it is large or small, removing moisture rapidly is the key to preventing secondary problems. So as soon as you notice moisture where it is not supposed to be, it is wise to start cleaning it up.
First off, it is good to start removing any standing water that you may see. If the standing water is more than two inches deep, then it can help to pump it out with a submersible pump. If you do not own a sump pump or trash pump, then you can rent one from a hardware store. Once you get a pump, put it in the standing water and run the exhaust hose so that the liquid waste goes into a sewage drain such as your toilet. Turn the pump on and let it pump all of the standing water in the affected area into the toilet or another sewage drain for water cleanup.
Next, it is wise to remove any other visible water that is inside your house. For example, if you see water on a hard surface floor like concrete or linoleum, you can use a mop or a squeegee. If the amount of liquid is excessive, it can help to use a squeegee to push the water to the outside or into a floor drain. For any excess moisture that remains, using a mop to soak it up can be helpful.
When disasters are small, it is possible for you to handle the situation yourself. However, in the case of larger, more severe incidents it is wise to call SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 because we can help you return your house to the way it was before "Like it never even happened."
