With a water damage restoration service in Lexington, NE, your home can be revived once again. But what is the cleaning process? What actually happens to restore the home? Read on to see what happens when a professional cleans your home after it’s affected by water.
No matter what type of water damage you have in the home, the water must be removed. Sometimes there is only standing water in the home while at other times you may be affected by sewage. In either case, professional equipment is needed to pump the water from the home. Once the water has been removed, the full extent of the damage will be revealed.
Removing Contaminated Items
Now the contaminated items are removed from the home. This can include furniture, carpeting, flooring, sheetrock, or drywall. Anything that might be contaminated must be removed.
After contaminated items are removed, the space must be dried. The home can be susceptible to mold and mildew if any moisture remains. With water damage restoration in Lexington, NE, a powerful dryer is used to ventilate the area and ensure everything is dried out completely.
