REASONS TO CALL A PROFESSIONAL WATER EXTRACTION SERVICE FOR YOUR HOME

REASONS TO CALL A PROFESSIONAL WATER EXTRACTION SERVICE FOR YOUR HOME

If your home has suffered water damage caused by natural flooding, a leak from a broken water pipe or dishwasher, or a leaking roof, acting quickly is the key to containing the extent of the damage and making repairs easier. The longer you wait to hire a professional water extraction service company, the more serious, not to mention expensive, the damage will be, especially once mold and mildew begin to set in. The problem may be even worse if you have a basement.

Fortunately, there are professionals who can handle the job of water removal—a process also known as water extraction. While it’s not impossible to remove all the water causing problems in your home yourself, seeking the help of a professional is usually safer and faster. Here are a few reasons why.

Challenges of Removal

The task of completely removing less than a foot of water from your basement won’t look too difficult at first, but once you get started without any kind of special equipment, you’ll realize it’s backbreaking work. And even if you’ve removed all the water, you need still need a reliable assessment of the real extent of the damage, —like mold—, which may not be visible to the untrained eye.

Costs

Say you really want to attempt the removal yourself, and you’re willing to buy the equipment needed to do it. Ask yourself if you’re really ready to spend on industrial equipment that will probably only see one use. And mind you, you still need to buy the proper safety equipment for the job.

And finally, you also have to think of the non-monetary costs of water extraction and water damage repair. For someone with no experience removing water, you can expect to spend several hours on the job.

Drying

After the complete removal of the water in an area of your home, say, your basement, it then has to be dried properly to prevent any growth of mold and mildew. Drying is also critical to eliminate any unpleasant odors caused by the presence of moisture. 

Given all the factors in water extraction that involve your time, money, and health, attempting to extract water from your home just has too many risks. Leave the dirty work at the hands of the pros.
