Issues that Trigger the Need for Water Extraction Services

There must be some obvious reasons that can cause water damage and flooding at your home. Let’s see some major reasons for the flood:

Flooded water in the home
  • Heavy Rainfall: Excessive rainfall can overwhelm drainage systems and cause flooding.
  • Poor Drainage Systems: Inadequate or poorly maintained drainage systems around homes can result in water pooling and flooding during heavy rain.
  • Sewer Backup: Sewer systems can become overwhelmed during heavy rainfall, leading to sewage backup into homes.
  • Leaky or Burst Pipes: Damaged or burst pipes within a home can release large amounts of water, causing indoor flooding.
  • Malfunctioning Appliances: Faulty appliances such as water heaters, washing machines, or dishwashers can leak or overflow, causing water damage and potential flooding.
  • Melting Snow and Ice: Rapid snowmelt, particularly after a heavy snowfall or sudden temperature rise, can lead to localized flooding.
  • Natural Disasters: Apart from hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and other natural disasters can also cause flooding by damaging infrastructure and disrupting drainage systems.

Benefits of Our Professional Restoration Services in Alabama

This process is designed to handle the challenges that traditional drying methods often fail to satisfy.

Faster Drying

Water Out drying process works faster than dehumidifiers. The rapid drying process minimizes the risk of mold growth.

Lower Energy Consumption

It uses a fraction of the electricity unlike refrigerants or desiccant dehumidifier methods. It requires 115 volts at 9-14 amps, about the power consumption of a typical household appliance.

Fresh Air Drying

A super-dry air (2% RH, relative humidity) is circulated through a flooded building and then exhausted to the outside. This “open drying” concept leaves a clean, dry building in only a few days.

Quiet Operation

Unlike other traditional methods, this process is quiet. It's inaudible from more than twenty feet. This will minimize disruption during the restoration process.

What Happens to My Home if I Don’t Do Water Extraction in Time?

Growing mold in the water damaged house

Water creates an ideal environment for mold growth. Mold can start to develop within 24-48 hours in a moist environment. Once mold begins to grow, it can spread rapidly and cause respiratory issues, allergies, structural damage, and unpleasant odors. Once mold starts spreading, remediation becomes more complex and expensive.

Prolonged exposure to water can seep into walls, floors, and ceilings, compromising their structural integrity. Over time, this can weaken the foundation of the building and compromise the safety of the building. And it also leads to costly repairs or even collapse in extreme cases.

Water and electricity are a dangerous combination. If water infiltrates electrical systems or appliances, it can cause short circuits, electrical fires, or electrocution hazards. This presents a serious risk to both property and personal safety.

Delaying water extraction may result in complications with insurance claims. Insurance companies typically require prompt action to mitigate damage and may deny claims or reduce coverage if proper steps are not taken promptly.
