Stages of Flood Removal for Damaged Cheshire Home
Eliminating pooling floodwater is critical to protecting and restoring your Cheshire property.
Flooding is often one of the most traumatic events that homes can face, and when you see substantial water damage in your property, you wish to act as fast as possible to resolve it. Our rapid-responding technicians have effective mitigation strategies to remove standing water and begin drying the property as necessary.
Deep Extraction Solutions for Substantial Threats
Deep extraction can be needed after the worst that nature can do, leaving substantial flood damage in Cheshire homes. While there are several strategies to cleaning and restoring flooded properties, these efforts always begin with removing pooling water before other work can begin. Deep extraction solutions include several tools like:
- Gas-powered trash pump
- Electric submersible pump
- Truck-mount extractor
Surface Water Removal and Muck-Out Cleaning
Clearing out the rest of the surface water is another step to follow, and this involves other extraction devices in our inventory. This process leans most heavily on wet vacuums. With the water mostly removed, our team can focus on the debris and muck left behind and carried in by the flood. We shovel out and discard:
- Organic matter
- Ruined Contents
- Bulk Materials
Removing Trapped Moisture from Exposed Elements
Much like any water restoration project, drying is among the most critical stages. Failing to completely dry the property to its needed moisture levels can result in secondary damages like mold development or structural deterioration. While air movers often are the foundation of evaporative drying, we also rely on specialized equipment such as:
- Positive pressure systems
- Drying mats
- Portable electric heaters
- Desiccant dehumidifiers
