What is the water restoration process?
Water Restoration Process
Once you remove water from your flooded business, start the restoration process. Again, you need a restoration company to do the work. The company will begin by checking the severity of the pipe break, supply line break or any other plumbing issue that might have brought water in your business. After that, they will kick-start the water cleanup process by drying up all the affected areas. There are special drying tools specifically designed to do the job very quickly. Drying the water in your business will prevent the growth of molds in the flooded area.
Once the water in your business is completely dry, the restoration experts will check the walls and other parts of the flooded facility to see the extent of the damage. They will also check to see the extent of pipe break or supply line break and decide if there is need for replacement. They may use their drying tools to cleanup if they find the walls and other areas to be wet.
The water cleanup process will finally end with foundation repair. In some severe cases, the flood water in the business may seep through the floor down to the foundation. The restoration experts will check to see how far the water in the business has gone. In most flood damage cases, the water from supply line break and pipe break do not reach the foundation.
There is a little you can do to prevent flood damage caused by natural disasters such as storms and earthquakes. However, there are a lot of mitigation measures you can employ to reduce the likelihood of flood damage occurring in your business. One mitigation measure involves frequently checking for any incidences of pipe break and supply line break to prevent water damage. There are also other mitigation measures you can employ. You can remove debris from the gutters, seal cracks in the foundation, install window well covers and seal cracks around the house.
Removing debris from the gutter or installing window well covers by yourself is very dangerous. You need a restoration expert to handle these tasks.
