How to Choose from all the Water Extraction Companies Near Me

When deciding on who to choose to help you recover from a disaster, you want to make sure you hire someone who will do the job right and with minimal damage to your home and content. One of the most important things to consider is the methods that are being used to extract the water. If you do not remove the water properly, you may find yourself in a far worse situation than you initially had with the flood. If you leave areas of moisture unattended, it can cause detrimental damage to your property in the long run. But more importantly, it may end up putting your health at risk.

Make sure you hire an IICRC Certified Flood Technician. This will ensure that the proper service is performed. You should also make sure that they use the proper equipment to mitigate the problem. If improper equipment is used, you may end up finding that the clean-up job takes longer, which ends up causing more damage over time. This next one is the most commonly ignored one: always hire a company that works under the non-invasive methodology. This methodology focuses on minimal impact to existing foundations and finishes, allowing more of the property to be preserved/restored. This will directly impact your long-term costs of recovery. The more unnecessary tear-out that occurs, the longer and more expensive the disaster effort will cost you. Before choosing the right company for the job, ask them this list of question:

Mould Growth Timeline

Here is what happens when water makes contact with almost any dry surface and is left for a prolonged period of time.

24 to 48 Hours
Mold begins to germinate and grow. As moisture overtakes the wet areas, new germination location are created.
Day 3 to Day 12
The affected areas have significantly grown. Spores begin to colonize and replicate more rapidly.
day 12 to day 30
Damage is now apparent as mold becomes clearly visible to the naked eye. Most areas in the home now are affected by mold in varying degrees.
