Home Safety for Water Emergencies in Austin
When there is excessive water damage in a home, it is important to make sure the household is safe. You must unplug appliances, all electronics, and shut off utilities such as your air conditioning, heating, electricity in total, and any oil or gas system. You do not want to suffer from an extreme accident if the sudden water damage, leak, or flooding accidentally sets off a chain reaction of issues in your home. Electricity, gas lines, and other parts of your home will definitely not respond well to sudden water flooding or damage.
Saving Your Upholstery & Belongings
While your emergency water pumping and home flood or water damage response is underway, we will also remove all belongings that can be safely removed. It is important to remove as much furniture, cloth, curtains, rugs, and belongings as possible. This will lower the amount of lost goods and possessions from the surprise water damage. Whether you are suffering from a storm, flood, excessive rain, a plumbing accident, or another water emergency, you can trust Aura to provide an immediate response.
Once the emergency water damage is taken care of and fully drained, the house is safe, and belongings or other things in the home are removed, it is important to begin water remediation plans. Generally this will include carpet removal or expedited drying, and specific drying methods and equipment for home flooring, walls, and ceilings. It is vital that everything is dried effectively so that the water damage cannot cause rot or further problems. Once this is planned for and taken care of entirely, it is time to restore the home.
Once your water emergency is stopped, and your home is fully or mostly dry, it is important to begin restoration efforts. Any rotted wood, carpet, or other damp materials that refuse to dry must be removed before mold can grow or expand. This all must be handled quite quickly to avoid unmanageable mold, mildew, or other problems. At worst, the integrity of your home structure can be affected. Any sort of cracks or breaks in the foundation or structure must be repaired immediately. It is safe to assume that you will need to spend some time out of the home or the affected rooms or floors to ensure your water damage remediation and restoration project can be completed in a timely manner and effectively.
