Tips For Better Water Cleanup In Pagosa Springs
Tips For Better Water Cleanup
Whether it's a burst pipe or a broken appliance that floods your Pagosa Springs property, it is important to do thorough cleanup to restore the property to its preloss condition. Luckily, this is a case of clean water, which has minimal contaminants compared to cases with grey water, so the cleaning process is simpler. The only exception is if the spillage happens when no one is home because even clean water can cause other problems like mold and bad odor if left standing for too long.
Perhaps the best strategy regarding water cleanup in Pagosa Springs is taking every step possible to prevent spillage. In this national preparedness month of September, you should familiarize yourself with ways that help prevent spillage. Check for signs of leakage in hotspots such as the area under sinks, near the water heater and along the plumbing lines especially where there is a connector or any other fitting. Turning off the main water supply is a good idea especially if you plan to be away from the property for a long period. In case you have water-leak detection devices, you should replace the batteries. These measures prevent spillage or limit the time water pools around the property.
If prevention fails, it is essential to take proper remedial action. Having the emergency number of a restoration company like SERVPRO is also important because we have the capacity to start the necessary remedial action as soon as you notify us. Like with any other water emergencies, the speed of water extraction from the property makes a difference to how successful the remedial process is.
Stains can be a major headache if not addressed properly. Most of the stains occur due to transfers from one material to another. For example, books and other materials lying on the floor can transfer stains to the carpet. Metal items can also cause rust stains on carpets or upholstery items, which are close. Our SERVPRO team helps move items before they cause stains. In case we find any stains, we clean them off while the affected materials are still wet because it is more effective this way.
