No one wants to deal with water damage, even if you caught it in an early stage. The water damage recovery process is a lengthy one. After all, depending on how long the water has been accumulating, you may have a lot of work ahead of you. Instead of guessing and doing things on your own, contact your local water damage restoration company. At Ram Restoration, we have a proven track record of quality water damage restoration in the Dayton, Ohio area. When it comes to water damage recovery, we have what it takes to help your family.
Your safety is of the upmost importance to us. Chances are, the water damaged areas of your home are close by electrical outlets. You’ll want to make sure you turn off power for the area with water damage. However, make sure you take safety precautions to avoid an electrical shock. You’ll also want to make sure anything spoiled beyond repair. This includes any food in fridges that are turned off from the power supply being turned off. Also, you’ll want to be careful where you step. Depending on the amount of damage and water that flooded the area, you may not have a clear pathway. Watch your step and make sure you don’t injury yourself trying to clean up the area.
Dry Your House
If you have water that is pooling, you’ll want to remove the water as soon as possible. The sooner you act, especially if you notice water damage and flooding as soon as it happens, you’ll have less of a chance of mold growing. However, mold growth starts within 24 to 48 hours, so you need to act quick. Industrial fans can help with this process. You can also work to pump the water out by directing the water towards your sump pump.
Clean Affected Areas
Once you call us in, we help in cleaning the affected areas. This includes moving salvageable items away from the affected area so it’s one less item that could be damaged later on. Additionally, we work to prevent mold damage. Even if you remove the water within the 24 to 48 hour time frame, it’s always a good idea to treat the area just in case since our restoration and remediation experts are already on-site and ready to help.
Restore Affected Areas
Finally, our last step in the process is to restore the affected areas. We’ll work with you to restore your home to its pre-loss condition. We also work to repair or replace all of the materials in your affected area. First, we work to repair them. However, if the damage is beyond repair, we work to replace them with a similar product.
Water damage recovery takes a while. But, once it’s completed and you’re back in your home, you can immediately relax. We’ve worked hard to refine our process to make it easier on your family.
