Imagine buying a house in Manhattan, Kansas, with plans of finally realizing your dream of having a nice walkout basement with room galore. You settle in, unpack boxes, and begin planning the elements of a perfect place to lounge: do you want a wet bar? Maybe you want an old-school gaming area complete with one of those snazzy board game tables? Perhaps you want a craft room for your sewing machine and to decorate your new home?
You get to work on making your hangout as awesome as possible, and it only takes a year to get it to the point where you want to invite your new friends to check it out. Then, the day before you are all set to watch a favorite show on TV, a pipe in the basement bursts, and the basement floods, wrecking all your stuff!
What do you do?
You could go out and immediately buy all the things you purchased, but that took over a year for you to collect, and what if some of it is still salvageable? What will you do with the antique secretary from your grandparents? It’s been in the family for years! It doesn’t make sense to toss everything without knowing what can and should be saved. What about the walls, the carpet, the hardwood floors upstairs!?!
This is where water mitigation experts can save the day!
What is Water Mitigation?
Water mitigation experts know exactly how to clean, sanitize, and dry your property to ensure that you and your family will be healthy and safe. They help minimize losses by determining the cause of the water damage and efficiently fixing it. Good water mitigation experts can determine what kind of water damage is present, even if it’s in the basement (water damage is categorized as Category 1, 2, or 3, depending on the severity of contaminants).
At Lamunyon, we have what it takes to get the water mitigation job done. If you want to understand more about our process, read on:
What Do You Do During the Water Mitigation Process?
Water mitigation experts use a number of tools to dry standing water, including industrial extractors, wood floor drying systems, sub-floor drying systems, and air movers to remove standing water. Additionally, remaining moisture is removed from the air and the structure itself, using industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers to eliminate moisture. Dehumidification is necessary to prevent mold growth by extracting water from the air.
These techniques can also be applied to sensitive materials, like board games, books, posters, rugs, and carpets. The property and salvageable belongings (like your rare Willie the Wildcat bobblehead) are then sanitized to ensure that your home is clean and healthy for your family again.
