What to do when you have water damage Brevard County, Florida?

So you’ve had water damage from some type of water intrusion, and now you have a wet carpet. What do you do? There are several things to consider:
How much water are we talking about?

If there is minimal water damage, three or 4 gallons, you can probably use a shop vacuum to remove the water, then direct large fans at the water damaged area. You should also use a dehumidifier in the room if you have access to one.

If a large area is affected and/or there is an excessive amount of water damage you will need the water professionally removed with a water extractor. The professional will also be able to “float” the carpet and pad and get air circulating underneath.

Areas identified with the camera as suspect for being wet are verified by further testing with a moisture meter. Water Damage Express Restoration can find these suspect areas and then can find potential leaking areas and mold growth areas.

Drying a Carpet After Flood

Carpet water damage  to carpets is a very commonly seen problem, and one that causes a whole lot or grief. There’s unfortunately no standardized procedure for dealing with this pesky situation. However, there are steps you can take to minimize the damage. The key step of course is to reach out to a professional water damage restoration company like WATER DAMAGE EXPRESS. Before we go that far, however, we first want to look at some other steps.

To Replace Or Not To Replace
It’s tempting to just give up and replace carpet. However, this isn’t always necessary. Carpet can often be salvaged, but you need to make sure you do the following:
  • Turn off the water supply in your home. 
  • Avoid walking on the carpet. 
  • Remove any and all furniture and/or furnishings 
  • Begin the process of water extraction and removal as soon as possible. 
Professionals usually need two to three hours to get out to your home. There is plenty you can do in the meantime to get the process rolling.

Ideally, you should separate the carpet from the attached tack strip. Discard the padding, raise the carpet and use fans and/or any other methods to expedite the drying process. The last one is really important. Carpet padding soaks up moisture like a sponge. It must be discarded, no matter what!

Dab dry towels on the carpet to help soak up more moisture. Take it outside if it’s not glued down. This is especially useful it’s summer.


Professional Assistance
It is possible to cleanup after a flood without professional help from a Water Damage Express. It of course depends on the extent of the water damage. We recommend contacting a  Water Damage Express  and getting a free inspection regardless. Even if you don’t opt for restoration services, at least you’ll get a full and accurate assessment of your situation.

Tips to Protect Your Home from Water Damage

A small amount of water can cause considerable water damage to your home. When water finds its way into your home, through the roof, basement or other area, the result is water damage and mold growth. Most of the time, these problems require professional water damage restoration services. However, you can prevent water damage in your home by following a number of rules:
  • Clean and maintain gutters and downspouts. If there are leaves, sticks, debris or bird’s nests in your gutters, water may overflow onto the side of your house. In your gutter cleaning routine, check for cracks or sagging, and have them repaired.
  • Make sure downspouts extend at least 10 feet away from the foundation of your house. The ground around the foundation should also be sloped at least 6 inches over a 10-foot span away from the house, to avoid basement flooding.
  • Have your roof annually checked for cracked or missing shingles, deteriorated flashing, pooling water or missing granules. To prevent ice dams in freezing weather, insulate your attic to prevent it from heating up.
  • Install a sump pump with a battery backup system. Maintain and test the sump pump according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and remove any debris that may be blocking the water inlet screen. Batteries should usually be replaced every 2 to 3 years.
  • Install backflow valves and standpipes at all basement drain locations, sinks and toilets. These mechanisms automatically prevent sewage from backing up into your home.
  • Don’t pour grease down the sink, as it can cling to pipes and cause blockage, even if you rinse the drain with hot water afterwards. The best way to get rid of grease is to pour it into an empty jar, refrigerate it, then discard it into the trash.
  • Routinely check your home for leaks in areas such as ceilings, under pipes inside sink cabinets, or around sinks and toilets. Immediately fix water leaks to prevent serious water damage and mold growth.
  • If your water bill is unusually high and you don’t know why, this may be a sign that some pipes are leaking in your home. In this case, hire a professional plumber to detect and repair damaged pipes.
    • Inspect appliances that use water.
    • Turn off the water supply valve when going on vacation.
    • Ensure you can turn on/off the supply valves when needed.
    • Do not operate appliances when going to sleep or leaving the home.
    • Inspect water supply hoses of the washing machine, dishwasher, etc. twice a year. Check and repair damaged hoses.
    • Leave a gap of 3 to 4 inches between the washing machine or refrigerator and the wall.
There are many ways your home can suffer water damage Palm Beach and require water remediation and mold removal services. Paying attention to leaks and maintaining your roof, gutters, basement and plumbing system are essential to preventing property water damage South Florida.
