ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons has responded to numerous Water Damage Clean Up calls in Lincoln Park this past week. Some of the causes include burst water pipes connected to outdoor water spigots. Homeowners are turning their sprinklers on for the first time this spring and ending up with significantly water damaged basements. Some business-owners are experiencing sewer backup from toilet bowls and floor drains. In either event, these water damages bring bacteria into a home or business and require immediate remediation including extraction of the dirty water, application of anti-microbial agents and immediate drying and dehumidification of the affected areas. What we might consider “clean” water, really isn’t. Though the source of the water damage in your home or business may have been a water supply line, you must ask yourself what your water traveled through before it settled. It may have soaked through building materials like insulation, old wood framing, drywall or plaster, not to mention any pest remnants behind your wall. Still sound like “clean” water? While it’s not always necessary to tear out drywall and pull up carpeting, there is an immediate need to begin anti-microbial treatment of the affected areas and to dry & dehumidify. While the home or business owner may be able to extract some water using a shop vac, it requires professional, commercial grade extractors to remove the greatest amount of water.
