Why Is Water Extraction Important?

If you are a property owner, then you know that water damage is among the most feared type of damage to your home. Flooding, leaking, sewage backup, and natural disasters are some of the most common types of water damage to affect the property. If you are unfortunate enough to come across one of these issues, it is important to know what to do next: water extraction. Continue reading to learn what water extraction is and why these services may be necessary after water damage has occurred.

What is Water Extraction?

Water extraction is a type of restoration method used to remove standing or excess water from your property. After a water incident such as flooding has occurred, a restoration company works to remove the water and minimize any damage to the property. When it comes to minimizing damage, the restoration company will help in reducing the risk of permanent damage to physical objects in the home such as valuables. The company will also work on preventing mold growth, which can pose a dangerous health risk to those in the property or home. Lastly, the company will strive to restore the property to its former condition before the incident took place.

The Process

When it comes to removing water from your home or property, it can be a difficult task that is best left to the professionals. The first step in this process is to halt the surge of water. This may be a simple task or may require the assistance of emergency services. Next, drain the water. This step consists of removing visible puddles of water by using a wet vacuum or a pump. The next step is to remove non-visible water. Water can remain hidden in your walls and carpets which may lead to mold formation, so this step is crucial.

Why is Water Extraction Necessary?

Water can leave devastating consequences if not handled appropriately. A small amount of water can put a home or property at risk for mold growth, which can be toxic to people and pets. A larger amount of water can potentially compromise the integrity of your property’s structure. If water is not 100% cleaned up and repaired properly, there will be more serious consequences down the road. Some of these include water eating away at the structure of your property, growth, and spread of mildew and mold, bad smells, and even respiratory health problems.

After all, is Said and Done

As previously stated, it is imperative to completely remove water damage to avoid more costly and dangerous outcomes later on. The longer you wait to repair the damage, the worse it will get. It is also important to never cut corners and only rely on expert contractors to restore your property. Classic Restoration is here to help. You can have a certified restorer at your door in one hour or less, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
