Upper Lake Water Extraction
Imagine this kind of wetness when you wake up to put on your slippers. Not very pleasant, but very alarming. The longer wet carpet sits, the more likely you will have a damaged subfloor that will take weeks to replace, especially if the whole level of your home is damaged.
Some of our water damage and extraction process
We have seen some horrific cases of water damage; they are often accompanied by unpleasant odors, rotting wood or even black water. In the case of black water, the water is completely contaminated and poses a biohazard to you, or anyone who touches it without protecting. In the case of floods, we highly recommend not entering the water because the flood water may have mixed with raw sewage during a storm.
If carpet has been contaminated, we don’t clean it. We remove it right away, and clean/sanitize the area underneath to prevent further growth. If you don’t use any sort of chemical or technology to prevent the spread and growth of mold.
Why the first time is most important
Upper Lake water extraction is such a scientific process. If we don’t extract enough, you could be left with mold. If we don’t dry what can’t be extracted, it might get through to the subfloor, which could possibly require reconstruction. Smells are also difficult to remove, so if we leave the water sitting too long, any smell left behind may be difficult to remove. We don’t want to cost you any more than what’s necessary, especially if there are preventative measures that can be applied.
