Although flooding is not typically something that Arizona is associated with, it does happen from time to time due to plumbing failures, accidents and storm damage. This is not a situation that should be taken lightly as damage will continue to spread at a rapid pace until the standing water has been removed. In almost every circumstance where substantial flooding has occurred, the most efficient way to do this is to call a restoration company capable of water extraction. This specialized equipment can quickly and efficiently remove standing water from the structure.
At the conclusion of water extraction it is very important to dry the rest of the materials correctly. Water can continue spreading even if all of the visible water has been removed. As materials like drywall absorb moisture, it can continue to wick for quite awhile after the initial moisture was removed. Depending on the source of the flood, some building materials could need to be removed due to contaminants that could be present. At the conclusion of any demolition air movers, dehumidifiers and sometimes air scrubbers will be used to dry the building materials. This needs to be done in a timely matter to prevent the potential for mold growth. Ignoring the problem or stopping short of completing all of the steps mentioned will typically result in a large mold issue.
