Water Damage Proper Procedures Guarantee Cleanliness During Water Cleanup in Rancho Cordova SERVPRO Provides the Red Carpet Treatment for Water Removal and Restoration in Rancho Cordova

SERVPRO Dries and Restores Carpeting in Rancho Cordova After a Water Damaging Event

Water damage restoration might involve more than just drying the excessive moisture from your Rancho Cordova property. The exact steps involved depend on the kind of water flooding the property. In the restoration world, water types fall into different categories depending on the source or more precisely, the level of contaminants present. For example, clean water from the tap falls into a different category compared to sewage water. Involving a professional during cleanup guarantees the use of correct procedures.

During water cleanup in Rancho Cordova, the technicians need to establish the kind of contaminants present in the water. By following established industry standards, our SERVPRO team checks whether black, grey or clean water is involved. These are the three levels of categorization and black is the most contaminated. In cases of grey water, use of disinfectants is necessary in addition to the typical water extraction methods. Our preferred mode of delivery is to spray the EPA-registered disinfectants all over the affected areas to reach every corner. If it is a case of black water, the only way to ensure proper cleanliness is to dispose of the carpet. Tiled floors can be sanitized and disinfected.

Even when the water flooding a property is clean water, materials in the affected area might transfer stains to carpets or upholstery. Simple, yet easy to miss items such as books, area rugs, and curtains are the worst culprits. Immediately our SERVPRO team arrives at your property; they remove all these items reducing the effort and time needed for cleaning. If the carpet has any furniture stains, we remove them before extracting the water. Doing this saves more time because stains dissipate quickly when the carpet is still wet than when it is dry.

Part of the cleaning by our SERVPRO team involves prevention of bad odors. After all, the awful smell would ruin the experience no matter how clean the place looks. Our best weapon against undesirable odor is a quick reaction. We can use truck-mounted extractors to suck water quickly from carpets and other materials in the affected areas. We also have portable water extractors for hard to reach areas. For hard surfaces, a squeegee attachment does a splendid job. Of course, we have many products like deodorizers and cleansers and use them accordingly to reach our drying and ambiance goals.

Calling a professional cleanup crew when your property is flooded helps ease the process of returning it to its preloss state. You should contact SERVPRO of Rancho Cordova at (916) 638-1720. We are available twenty-four hours a day, every day of the week.
