Oh no! See water on the ground? It is critical that water is removed from a property using extraction as quickly as possible. When we refer to water extraction we are referring to Step 1 of the water remediation process. The step in which the water is removed from the flooring of the property.
The reason it is so important that this process is completed by a certified professional, like our team members here at Premier Restoration Inc., is because any excess water left behind could lead to dangerous mold growth. Our first priority is ensuring you and your families safety.
To read more on the dangers of mold growth scroll through our blog posts.
Let’s take a look at this quote from our post titled What You Need To Know About Possible Mold Due To Water Damage; “Mold can grow immediately in certain cases but in most cases, it will take anywhere from 24 – 48 hours to grow. Mold and mildew can cause many problems, both to your family’s health and to your home. It can destroy furniture, drywall, and wood. It can offer a place where unwanted bacteria, mites, rodents, and roaches can live. Health-wise, mold has been known to be carcinogenic and can cause flu-like symptoms such as diarrhea and infections, and stuffy noses.”
Extracting the water quickly stops further damage from occurring as well. Damage to a property can be extensive when water is sitting on the floor’s surface. Many people are often confused about the differences between water extraction and water mitigation. To clarify, water mitigation comes after water extraction. The water mitigation steps consist of removing unsalvageable material, placing specialty drying equipment, and fogging the environment with a mold preventative.
While the extraction process focuses solely on the removal of surface water. Our technicians are ready and equipped with extracting units to handle the job efficiently. And you can guarantee they will be reliable, qualified, and will go the extra mile.
