The longer water remains standing the greater the damage to walls, ceilings, flooring and other property will be plus the greater the odds of mold forming. You need to call now. Of course we would recommend that you call our 24/7 emergency dispatch number and have a trained crew at your home within an hour, but whoever you decide on they need to be able to get to you quickly.

After you have help on the way you want to keep yourself and your family safe. While you might think that tropical storms and hurricanes are the principal cause of flood damage in Pompano, the truth is most water damage occurs when an appliance or a pipe fails. While not as dramatic as hurricane flooding these "typical" flooding events can cause serious injury if you and your family are not aware of the hazards.

What You Can Do Before the Professional Pompano Water Removal Service Arrives

Time is of the essence in cleaning up flood damage. Here are a few items you should be aware of to help speed up the process.

  • Slip and falls and electrocution are two serious injuries that are common after a flooding. If you can safely reach the circuit box cut the power to the affected area.
  • In two story homes the clothes washer is often on the second floor. If the hoses fail on the washer the water can possibly leak through the flooring. Stay out of any room that has a sagging ceiling.
  • Remember that when items are soaked they become very heavy. If you are trying to remove an area rug to the outside, be sure your heart is up to the job.
  • Pick up any items, particularly magazines and newspapers that are lying on a wet surface. The colored ink from the printed items can seep into wet carpets or fabrics.
  • Wipe off wet surfaces of tables, chairs, end tables etc.
  • Place aluminum foil under furniture legs to prevent water from causing rot.
  • Crank up the air to help reduce the humidity.

Of course the heavy lifting will begin when the pros show up. They will evacuate all the water and then begin a drying out process. At All Florida Restoration Pros we use a scientific method to effect the drying out and monitor its progress. Once the area is dry we do a thorough inspection looking for damage and the formation of mold. We are a full service company and can do any repairs required to walls, ceilings, cabinets, flooring and baseboards, or we can work with you to do a complete remodel.

If you have any questions about water removal in Pompano give us a call now and we will be happy to help you.
