If you ever experienced water damage, you know how devastating it can be. Standing water will damage carpets, furniture, and even air ducts. Standing water also promotes the growth of mold and bacteria in your home which can cause severe allergies and colds.

When water damage occurs, it is crucial to call for water removal and water damage restoration experts immediately. Taking this step will help limit the damage and prevent the early growth of bacteria and mold. At Steam Pro, we offer complete water damage restoration! This includes the cleaning of carpets, upholstery, and air ducts.

 

Is Water Removal Urgent?

The answer depends if the damage is the result of a clean water line burst or if the water is coming from a sewer line.

If the water came from a clean line, you have up to 24 hours before mold and bacteria will begin to grow. This means you have time to cleanup and assess the situation before calling in professionals. If the water damage is contained and from a clean source, you may not need to hire a plumber for the clean up process but you should call in a team of carpet cleaners to help dry your carpets properly.

If the water came from a sewer line, the matter is extremely urgent and the homeowner should not approach the standing water. This water will be filled with pre-existing bacteria that is hazardous. A plumber should be called in immediately to clean up and fix the problem. After the hazardous waste is removed it will be time to call in a team of professional water damage restoration experts to help you salvage the carpet.
