Water Cleanup Eliminates Heavy Rain from Your Miami Residence

Hurricane season is upon us here in Miami and preparing for the worst might seem like a yearly habit. September is National Preparedness Month, and we want everyone to learn new ways to protect themselves. Improving methods you already use to protect your property can also decrease the damage you experience. 

The lack of a hurricane does not mean you your home will never need water cleanup services in Miami. A hurricane might hit south or north of us and still create periods of heavy rain in our area. When this rain invades your home because strong winds push it into windows or entryways, or a damaged section of roof no longer shelters your home, you need to get that water out of your home as quickly as possible. Water can harm materials, and it gives mold and mildew the start they need to begin growing.

Preventing all disasters is not feasible, but preparing for situations that might cause damage can help minimize the costs associated with repair and restoration work. It can also help save items with sentimental value from irreplaceable loss. Water cleanup helps you restore your home and its belongings after the event occurs by extracting water and moisture and re-establishing dry conditions. Removing any soiling caused by particles swept up by the rainwater also helps immensely in getting things back “Like it never even happened.”

First, we determine the pumping equipment size based on the amount of water in your home upon our arrival.  If your home is without electricity, we can still start working because we also carry a power system for such situations. Getting all the visible water out eliminates breeding grounds for countless bacteria and other microbes and gives us better visibility of the situation. Cloudiness of water covering your floors can also hide possible dangers, and we want to reveal these hazards so we can more safely remove them.

We consider rainwater relatively clean and promptly removing it can increase the possibility of restoring any drenched carpets. We remove as much water as possible and then, in many cases elevate the carpet so we can direct airflow both below and above, entirely airing it out. When we do this, the evaporation of the moisture in the carpet dramatically increases the humidity in the air. Dehumidifiers used in the area extract the moisture and help us keep our progress on schedule.
