Water Damage Cleanup Saves Property
When water invades your Franklin home, it finds any possible path it can take. As water travels along a flat service, it will always branch off like roots of a tree branch, succumbing to the forces of gravity and finding any nook and cranny it can fit itself into. An upstairs faucet slowly leaking behind a pedestal sink may never show itself until it is found in a basement or the ceiling of the room below.
The same can be said for allowing a water damaged area of your home “dry on its own.” While you may believe you are saving yourself money by letting your home fix the problem on it’s own, leaving a room to stew in its own water logged state could potentially cost you thousands in repairs due to mold growth.
Mold can form in as little as 48 hours depending on the strain and climate your home is in. Having a water damage recover plan is vital in preventing mold growth and maintaining the health of your home and of your family. Call Action Extraction at the very first sign of water damage.
Water Damage Restoration Franklin from a Sump Pump Back Up
What should you do in the event that your sump pump fails? First things first you should call the professionals at Action Extraction no matter what time of day you find your issue. Action Extraction can help guide you through the first vital steps of getting yourself a new sump pump and how to proceed with your water damage project.
Sump pumps fail for many reasons. Floats can become stuck so that they never actually trigger the pump to begin diverting water away. Sometimes pumps can run for too long. Even the battery backup and water powered backup systems can fail. In any case, sump pump backups can be devastating to your home especially in a finished basement.
The water from a sump well is ground water also known as living water because it is teaming with millions of colonies of molds, chemicals and bacteria. Immediately after the water removal step our professionals will apply a plant-based germ elimination chemical to assure the safety of your home and its occupants.
Once water has been removed we will also begin to access your wet building materials and develop a mitigation plan suited to your individual needs. Padding under carpets will need to be removed, and carpets will need to be accessed for damage from wooden furniture or rust from metal items. While most carpets can be safely cleaned in the event of a sump pump backup, padding cannot be safely cleaned and must always be removed.
Drywall can be safely dried in place unless it has been wet over 72 hours. Base moldings and case moldings will likely be removed from wet sections of drywall to encourage exposure to rapid air flow. Drying the front, paper side, of drywall is important but often overlooked is the backside paper on drywall.
If this back side of the drywall is enclosed within a wall cavity, 1 inch holes must be punched at the base board level to allow for a thorough dry out. It is also important to check the wall cavities for insulation, as the paper face of rolled insulation is a breeding ground for mold when exposed to moisture. Our dedicated team will not overlook such details and will certainly navigate each step in our proven restoration protocol.
Water Damage Restoration from a Sewer Backup in Franklin
When Action extraction arrives to cleanup after a sewer backup the first service implemented will be removal of any excess standing water in your basement. We use truck mounted extraction units that can easily pull hundreds of gallons of standing water from your home in minutes.
Without water extraction, water damage projects could potentially take weeks to dry out. With Extraction, dry times are cut down to days, typically 3.
Once all items have been accessed for damage from the sewer water, we will sterilize all surfaces with GREEN planet friendly botanical germ killing agents that will eliminate germs and freshen the environment.
The next step in our water damage restoration in Franklin process is high pressure steam cleaning of all floor and wall base surfaces. This is critical as these porous surfaces often trap germs in deep pockets that can only be driven out by steam pressure.
Lastly we will place drying equipment to dry down the affected spaces and completely restore to a safe humidity the entire property. Industrial fans and dehumidifiers must be used to ensure a quality dry out, confirmed by highly sensitive moisture meters and hygrometers. All fans will be set in what we call a vortex system. That system will push air rapidly around your basement environment, sending saturated air to our dehumidifiers which will take that heavy wet air and dry it out. That air will then be sent right back into our vortex as dry “thirsty” air, ready to grab up as much moisture from your building materials as it makes it journey around the room and back into the waiting dehumidifier.
After 3 days, Action Extraction will check all of your building materials to make sure that everything in your home is at a dry standard, and your home is no longer in danger of further water damage. Of course, your personal water damage project may not look exactly like this, which is why it is very important to call the pros at Action Extraction the instant you discover you need water damage restoration in your Franklin MI home.
