Water Damage Clean Up should be performed within 2 hours of water intrusion. It’s important to remember that response time is key! You have to remember mold grows within the first 24-48 hours. This is even more crucial in the warm summer months when temperatures and humidity are higher. Higher temperatures and high humidity levels increase the odds that mold can be growing in your carpet, drywall or baseboards.
We come across a lot of times where the homeowner has tried to start/do the drying process themselves, with that many times they don’t always know what’s wet, where its wet, but even if you do want to try on your own so you do not have to make and insurance claim you can always give us a call and we will come out for a service call to make sure your wet walls/carpet/contents are all drying out. Even when a homeowner is trying to extract water using a shop vacuum, odds are they are not removing as much water as they think they are. Sage is able to extract gallons of water in a lot less time that a shop vacuum, plus our weighted extraction equipment will get up to 95% of the water out of your carpet and pad which makes drying it that much faster. Next we will set up drying equipment and come back daily to monitor the dry out process. When it comes to water, time is of the essence to prevent secondary damage to contents and the structural materials of your home as well as to prevent mold growth.
Under normal situations our response time is within an hour depending on the location we are going to. Give us a call today if you are in need of help!
