What has been water damaged?
Flooding and water damage can cause significant issues within your home. For instance, it can have the following impact on building materials:
- Drywall can crack, become susceptible to mould and mildew, and can swell and buckle.
- Porous materials, like carpet and insulation, could get warped or shrunk by water.
- Wood can warp, rot, and is at risk of getting mouldy.
- Underlayment and padding beneath flooring might lose its structural integrity.
What kind of water has damaged your home?
If sewage has leaked or flooded your property, restoration will be much harder than if it were clean water or greywater. This is because sewage contains pathogens, like bacteria and viruses, which are very dangerous to be exposed to and in contact with.
Contaminated building materials, like drywall and insulation, and porous materials that have been fully submerged, like carpets and rugs, must be removed. They will require specialist disposal according to local and governmental regulations.
Professional cleaners can safely take care of these contaminated materials for you. They will also have the specialist products, equipment, and PPE to deep clean your home to make it safe again.
Has mould started growing in your property?
Mould grows in humid conditions with little ventilation, so a water damaged home will contain its ideal conditions. Professional cleaners can remediate it in your property, helping to significantly improve the air quality in the environment.
If left untreated, mould spores could spread around your property and put your health at risk. It can prompt allergic reactions, cause asthma attacks, and in serious cases trigger serious health problems.
Only professional cleaners should attempt mould remediation as they have the PPE to keep themselves safe, and the equipment to get rid of it quickly.
ICE Cleaning’s Dewpoint accredited technicians can restore as much water damage as possible, and tackle any mould growth it has caused. They are available nationwide, 365 days a year.
