Flood Damage Remediation in Potomac

After experiencing a flood in Potomac, MD, and its environs, it's almost obvious that a majority of the homeowners will experience water damage in their homes. To avoid serious water damage, it's imperative to contact professionals for the restoration of your home after a flood.

Water remediation after a flood is imperative to avert property damage. The remediation process can, however, vary from one location to the other as a result of various differences. Potomac, for example, receives 42 inches of rain per year compared to the US average of 38 inches yearly.

In addition, the creeks, channels, and ponds in the city increase the risk of mold. With such a high risk, the flood damage restoration process will be quite different when compared to places with a lower risk of mold infestation.

What to Do After a flood

If Potomac, MD has recently been hit by a flood, the best thing to do is to contact professionals from Flood Damage Pro immediately. That's in consideration that you might need services such as sewage cleanup, which are simply not DIY projects. Besides, time is of the essence if you want to avoid water damage from a flood.

Flood Damage Restoration Process

Flood damage remediation processes are similar to normal water damage restoration processes - water is the main element in a flood. Here are the steps followed by experts from Flood Damage Pro during any flood damage remediation process:

1. Inspection

Inspection is one of the most important steps of any restoration processes in your home. The main aim of the inspection process is to assess the extent of damage in your home so as to come up with an effective restoration plan. This step makes it easier to identify any special services such as sewage cleanup that might be needed for a complete restoration.

2. Water removal

After inspection, professionals from our company now know the main areas to work on. Water removal then follows, to prevent further damage as well as create a comfortable working space. This process typically requires pumps and wet/dry vacs. If services such as sewage cleanup are required, the equipment as well as the technique used can be a little bit different.

3. Drying

Of course, even the most powerful pumps and vacuums won't eliminate all the water in your property. That's where air movers and dehumidifiers come in. Flood damage restoration professionals use these to eliminate all traces of water left in your house after water extraction.

Depending on the extent of water damage, your home may require time to dry and dehumidify for the best results.

4. Cleaning and sanitizing

Water damage also affects several other items such as furniture and other items in the house. As such, our technicians usually clean and restore these items to prevent them from getting damaged. After the cleaning, the items and other areas of your home should be sanitized.

The main reason for sanitizing a house after water damage is to avoid exposure to disease-causing micro-organisms that might have been left even after cleaning. Experts use a range of antimicrobial products to sanitize sensitive areas such as the bathroom, as well as air scrubbers that can be used to remove unwanted particles from the air.

5. Restoration

Without this step, water damage restoration in your Potomac, MD home won't be complete. Depending on the extent of damage, this process can be as simple as replacing a few drywall panels, or as complicated as rebuilding an entire room. In all cases, you can expect professionals from Flood Damage Pro to restore your home to pre-damage condition or even better.
