Why you should not clean up a house flood yourself
Living in Texas, we all know that the weather changes in an instant. It's beautiful and sunny one minute and pouring down rain the next. With all of the rain we get this time of year, floods happen, its nearly impossible to get rid of all of the water yourself. Water can finds its way into any little holes or crevices in your walls and even floor. The slightest bit of moisture can cause mold growth, which would be very costly to fix, while potentially harming your families health. If you know anything about mold, you know that it is nothing to take lightly! Professional water extraction companies like us (Kolorkist Professional Services) deal with situations like these on a daily basis, so we know exactly how to handle everything from getting the water fully removed all the way to restoring your home to its original undamaged state.
How do we know where the moisture is and how do we remove it?
Trying to figure out where all the moisture is located is nearly impossible to the naked eye. You cannot find 100% of all water damage simply because water could find its way into places you wouldn't imagine. Just because you had a roof leak doesn't mean that water isn't in your walls, flooring etc. We use special thermal imaging to detect where all the water is, so we NEVER leave water behind.
Extracting The Water
Some people try to extract water from a flood with a shop-vac or any other kind of wet-dry vac. You will get SOME of the water out, but the fact of the matter is that 100% of the time, you will leave moisture behind simply because those vacuums are not strong enough. We use commercial grade truck-mounted equipment. Our vacuums are powered by a truck engine (4.8L V8 engine). We use only the best equipment in the industry. We use thermal imaging to determine if we will need to remove any carpet padding(we can preserve carpet sometimes, but it is never guaranteed that is is salvageable), this way we know that the drying process will rid all moisture and no mold growth with take place.
A household fan will not hold up to this task. We use commercial grade air movers which keep air circulating throughout the room(speeding up the drying process). We also use commercial grade dehumidifiers, which remove all moisture present in the room. These 2 peices of equipment used together are powerful and will always get rid of any moisture present.
