Importance of Water Extraction by SERVPRO of Hannibal.

Water extraction is important on so many levels. It should be done by a professional water restoration company such as SERVPRO of Hannibal that is IICRC certified (Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certification).

Here is why it is Important for you to use an IICRC certified professional water restoration company when you have a water loss.

First few minutes water (i.e... busted pipe) is coming into your home, business. Water damage starts with your carpet, laminate, hardwood, vinyl flooring, as water can get underneath stated floor coverings, in your heating and air conditioning ducts. As the water starts to rise so does the damage. Your furniture and your personal belongings start to become affected.

Hours 1 to 24 – Furniture swells and cracks, Sheetrock gets soft & crumbly.

Hours 25 to 1 week – Mold starts to grow & appear. Wood begins to warp. Metal starts to corrode.

1 Week & Beyond - Structural Safety Issues start, Health Hazards are in the beginning stages.

Now all the above can happen faster if the water is contaminated (i.e.…. Sump pump failure, Sewer back up) with bacteria associated with this type of water loss.
