After you call the professionals, water damage removal and restoration will start.
First, the professionals will inspect around to understand the root of the problem and try to stop the water. After this, they will inspect the water to understand the contamination level and see if it poses a health hazard.
After inspecting and stopping the water, the removal process will start. This is done with machines called extractors which work like vacuums and pumps. It is especially important if the basement is flooded. After standing water is removed, rest can be taken care of with normal vacuums.
The moisture inside is still there even after the visible water is gone. So, to understand the moisture level the walls and floors have, the professionals may use a moisture meter or a thermal camera. Afterward, large fans and dehumidifiers are brought.
Where the moisture is, there’s going to be mold growth. So, the business will likely need mold cleaning and prevention. The surfaces of your business will be cleaned and sanitized.
