Water Extraction:

After your property has been flooded, the first step after stopping the leak that you must take is to have someone extract the water as soon as possible. This is very important because the longer water sits, the more susceptible your property will be to damage or mold growth. Standing liquids can encourage microbial growth within 72 hours and can saturate all kinds of textiles and seep through drywall. Moisture may collect behind the walls, where mold and bacteria may multiply out of sight.

If a family reacts quickly enough, clothes and furniture may be saved.

ATH Restoration services can quickly identify what items in the home are compromised by water damage. Normally, anything that is porous may need to be discarded if it has come in contact with contaminated fluids. These items, like mattresses, box springs, pillows and particle board, trap more moisture than other materials and foster the growth of microbes.

Structural Drying:

When we inspect your property, we may find that the water did serious damage to the structure. If this is the case, we will need to take a number of steps to dry out and restore the affected surfaces properly. Structural drying is the method used for drying building materials in place quickly and effectively. We use evaporation, air movement, and dehumidification to bring your property back to dry conditions.
